Our Culture

South Africa has a unique history, an amalgamation of many different cultures.

Our land was originally known to the Khoisan people. Years later, explorers from all corners of the globe set their sights on the most southern tip of Africa. The landscape, climate and wildlife bore fruit too good making it tough for these groups to leave the land.

The types of cultures settling and building in South Africa since 500 BC up to today are known as the Bantu, Dutch Settlers, French Huguenot’s, the English, the Portuguese, Italians, Germans and more.

Today, these cultures co-exist as South Africans and strive for a better future with one another, in a democracy that is only 26 years old.

Women’s Day Run, Johannesburg CBD

“You cannot leave Africa, ” Africa said, “It is always with you, there inside your head.

Our rivers run in currents in the swirl of your thumbprints; Our drumbeats counting out your pulse; Our coastline, the silhouette of your soul”.
