Transcript

If I was a tourist, and I wanted to come to South Africa, I would really, I would recommend Cape Town. Definitely. The culture there is exquisite, and so, so alive and vibrant, with art and artists.

And then also Pretoria is also a really great one, the Kruger National Park in South Africa is a great experience, just to drive around in, in nature and seeing all of these wonderful things and animals.

Um, the other thing, I think, why I would come to South Africa, is just to experience the diverse culture. I mean, we have 11 official, you know, different languages in our country and I think just to experience all of them is magnificent. Every culture is different, and I think if I'm a tourist that's what I would like to come and see.
