Located at the southern tip of the African continent with a long coastline along both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, South Africa is a country with a population of over 51 million. The country has eleven languages that are officially recognised by the constitution two of which are English and Afrikaans. It has the largest economy in Africa and is considered a newly industrialised country. The country also has some of the oldest archaeological and human fossil sites in the world. Popular destinations include Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Kruger National Park. South Africa has a temperate climate thanks to being surrounded by ocean on three sides. A great variety of climates exist due to the country's topography and oceanic influence. The country's climate ranges from extreme desert in the southern Namib to lush subtropical in the east. The southwest has a climate similar to the Mediterranean with wet winters and hot, dry summers. On the south coast, rainfall is spread fairly evenly over the year, producing a green landscape. Winters occur from June to August.
