South Africa is without a doubt one of the most beautiful countries in the world and since throwing off the shackles of the apartheid era has become a serious contender for the world's best holiday destination. Millions of people fly into South Africa every year and with the biggest sporting event of them all, the World Cup, coming to South Africa for the first time in June 2010, the numbers visiting South Africa are destined to climb dramatically.
South Africa has undergone a period of rapid development over the last two decades and now boasts a multitude of ultra-modern airports. Capetown, Port Elizabeth, Durban, Queenstown, Johannesburg and Bloemfontein are the main airports in the country and are all equipped with excellent facilities and superb transport systems.
