South Africa is endowed with multi-faceted languages, cultural practices, genealogies and a biodiversity network and natural wonders that the world marvels at.

The strength and wealth of South Africa’s Heritage in the indigenous languages that are spoken, the National Parks where the biodiversity inhabits, the cultural beliefs and practices that are lived, the History of the Liberation of South Africa and the 9 Natural Wonders declared by the UNESCO World Heritage Sites will continue to be safeguarded, protected, promoted and preserved for the sustainable use of future generations to come.
