What country did South Africa belong to?
South Africa is located at the very southern edge of the African continent and borders on the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. The coastline stretches for a length of 2500 kilometers, and the land area is 1,219,912 km2. Germany thus fits into South Africa about 3.5 times.
The country borders a total of six states: Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe in the north and Mozambique and Swaziland in the east. In addition, South Africa encloses a complete independent country called Lesotho. This is called an enclave when one country is completely surrounded by another country.
These two landlocked countries – Swaziland and Lesotho – are a result of the conflicts between the British and the Boers in the 19th century (history and politics). Great Britain had made the two small areas into protected areas (protectorates) in order to prevent the further advance of the Boers. At the end of the 1960s, the two countries became politically independent, but their economy was still dependent on South Africa.
By the way, the time difference between Germany and South Africa is only one hour. If it’s summer, then the time is even the same, because then our watch will be presented for an hour and so we will have South African time.
