When thinking of international travel, Brazil might not be at the top of the list for all South Africans. However, since Angola Airlines opened its extremely affordable routes to Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro (think half the price you might normally pay through other airlines), the country is suddenly an attractive destination for South African travellers. Brazilians often say that they live in their own little world owing to the fact that the country is so large. The country might be too vast to see everything in one go, but at least this means that you can rest assured knowing that you will never be bored when in Brazil. Top attractions include: The Aquário Natural, river journeys on the Amazon, the bustling Rio nightlife, the beaches of the North-east and the Parque Nacional da Tijuca.
