30 Photos That Prove South Africa Is The Craziest Place On Earth

South Africa can be a crazy place, just how crazy you may ask? Oftentimes when we think of South Africa as our beloved country, there are so many reasons to feel good about it. The rainbow nation is truly a hospitable bunch, with diverse cultures and great pride in their country. The climate is rated as one of the best in the world. Even winter has sunshine, few countries in the world have the quality of drinking water from their tap direct, the wildlife – Unrivaled, one massive country with so many different regions, a constitution that is held in high regard by world leaders, tourism is one of the top performing sectors of the economy, and it is not difficult to see why when you are here. Still, South Africa is a crazy place for some funny reasons.

There are dubious honours of being at the butt end of some pretty awful moments in the last 5 years. Who could forget our fake sign interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service or Thamsanqa Jantjie, or Idols contestant Buhle Mkwanazi, singing ‘Killing me softly’ and dancing like a lizard. BuzzFeed recently compiled this collection of photos on why South Africa is so unique. Check these photos for your answer.
