The 55 Sexiest South African Women

by 8 years ago

On Friday, the 2010 World Cup will commence in South Africa and hundreds of millions — if not billions — of people around the world will be at a fever pitch, tuning in at bizarre hours of the morning for the next month to witness soccer hysteria at its finest. The event is a shining moment in the history of South Africa, which, only 20 years ago, was still struggling under a turbulent history of apartheid. Nowadays, the ethnically diverse and geographically rich country at the southern tip of Africa boasts a emerging wine industry, stellar surfing, and a steady stream of tourists flocking to scenic Cape Town and Kruger National Park to spot “The Big Five” (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, and cape buffalo) on safari.


Impressively enough, the country is also home to the some of the sexiest women in the world. Before millions touchdown in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, and Durban for “the beautiful game,” let’s get a lay of the land by taking a glimpse at 55 of the most beautiful women from South Africa.
