Thereís nothing better than meeting the people in the places that you visit and South Africans canít wait to meet you. If the countryís eleven official languages are anything to go by, it is very culturally diverse. Some South Africans have their roots in Europe and India, but most have their roots in Africa. Zulus, Xhosas, Ndebele and Afrikaners are only some of the people you are likely to meet on your visit. Each culture is unique has a language and customs. People in the rural areas lead more traditional and simple lives that involve ceremonies, celebrations, traditional healing and belief in the ancestors. Many still live in mud and grass huts. Constrastingly, modern African music and funky fashions have grown from the hip culture in urban townships like Soweto.
