In South Africa, English is most commonly spoken along with Afrikaans and German. Ultimately, the languages are diverse and students have the opportunity to gain exposure to many different cultures connected to these languages.

The climate in Africa varies from region to region. From North to South, climate zones transition from the arid desert of the Sahara and the semi-arid climate in the Sahel to the tropical climate of Central Africa and the semi-tropical or temperate zones in Southern Africa. The variation in climate makes for many different environments, as students can visit the desert, rainforests.
