Truly deserving of the accolade "a world in one country", South Africa extends a welcome as warm as its glorious weather. Although peopled by a diverse ethnic and cultural mix that has resulted in the development and recognition of eleven official languages, English remains the lingua franca and prevalent business language.
Slightly less than twice the size of Texas in the USA, South Africa is bordered by the following countries: Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. The country has a coastline of 2,798 km. Climate is mostly semi-arid, with a vast interior plateau rimmed by rugged hills and narrow coastal plains. It has nine provinces, namely Eastern Cape, Free State, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Northern Cape, North West and the Western Cape.
South Africaâ's ecology is as varied as her people, and ranges from lush coastal and inland forests to savannah, semi-desert and the famous fynbos of the Western Cape. Despite a small population of wildlife on farmland and in certain rural areas, most small and large wildlife and game are preserved in specialized game farms and well-managed national or private reserves, such as those at Madikwe.
Morukuru is cradled in the heart of the Madikwe Game Reserve, along the banks of the Marico River. Madikwe is situated on the Botswana border in the North West Province, South Africa. The North West Province has a population of 3.4 million of whom 65 % are Setswana people.
