You’ve sacrificed a lot, yet you never give up. You’ve sacrificed hugs, kisses and handshakes, yet you stay in touch. You gave up your weddings, but don’t stop loving. You gave up traditions but never forgetting who you are.
We salute YOU, as through every sacrifice you have shown what it means to be South African.
The Through the Lens documentary series is an ongoing National Geographic and South African Tourism partnership featuring some of the world's best photographers and their visual interpretations of South Africa. The series began in 2008 with David Doubilet, Karen Kasmauski and Mattias Klum and in 2013 Heather Perry, Stephen Alvarez and Lola Akinmade Akerstrom visited the country to create incredible memories of the South African spiritual and visual landscape.
South Africa is an adventure destination of note. Whether you want to go cage diving with sharks, abseiling off sheer cliffs, bungee jumping off bridges, quad biking through forests - South Africa has an adventure activity for you.
