National Geographic : 1930 Dec
.A scene in delightful Durban Follow the SUN to SOUTH AFRICA LIKE our pagan ancestors, we are again worshiping the Sun God, drenching our bodies in the recuperative floods of golden sunshine! And South Africa is a favored land of the sun. The temperature of South African cities parallels that of the world's best known health resorts. 'Tis a land of continuous sunshine, clear, starry nights, and a bracing atmosphere. This ideal, health-building climate makes South Africa a veritable paradise for sport and recreation of all kinds-hunting and fishing, golf and tennis, mountain climbing, scenic motoring, and surf-riding and sun-bathing at delightful resorts on the Atlantic and Indian oceans. And Africa with its romance offers an amazing array of wonderful things to see -The beautiful Cape Peninsula ... Dia mond-famed Kimberley... the Rand gold mines.., the Kruger National Park, with over 250,000 head of Africa's animals... Zimbabwe's mysterious ruins... Peer less Victoria Falls... and a host of other startling marvels of nature and man. The fair-weather sea voyage to South Africa is most delightful. South African railroads are up to the minute in speed and comfort. The motor highways are su perb. Excellent hotels assure every 1-1c53 Comfort.
