Thank you for visiting our official website, we hope you will find the information useful, whether you are planning to visit South Africa or are interested in remaining current with the activities of the South African Embassy in Washington DC.
The Mission is committed to inculcating the spirit of Ubuntu and the “Batho Pele” (People First) principles, in the provision of its services; which is reflective of our country’s values of putting humanity central to all that we do. South Africa is open for business and continues to provide a wealth of opportunities for those looking at investing in an emerging market that boosts a stable democracy, incredible infrastructure and world class financial systems.
We remain a premier destination for tourism and always welcome an opportunity to welcome you to our country of beautiful scenery, wildlife, beaches and amazing climate. What is more important however is that you will meet culturally diverse South Africans, waiting to welcome you to our rainbow nation!
Should you need more information, I encourage you to reach out to me and my team through our provided contact details, which you will find on this website.

On November 5th Mangaka will go the extra mile for South Africa by running the DC Half and Half Marathon in support of the South Africa-Washington International Program (SAWIP). As a SAWIP alum, Mangaka recognizes the value of the program. Please visit her My Extra Mile campaign page where she explains why developing emerging South African leaders matters. Your investment in Mangaka’s campaign is an investment in the future of South Africa. SAWIP alumni are committed to making a positive difference in their communities. Some of the community engagement projects implemented by our alumni include:
- Creating skills development workshops for high school students in at-risk communities
- Providing legal aid services for those who lack access to justice
- Offering peer education around HIV/Aids and other public health concerns
- Informing communities about their civil rights and how to advocate for themselves
By making a donation and spreading the word, you are helping SAWIP provide opportunities that develop, inspire and support emerging young leaders who are creating a better South Africa for all its citizens. There is also an extra special perk: For every $25 donated, the donor is entered into a draw for two round-trip tickets between the USA and South Africa sponsored by South African Airways. Thank you for going the extra mile with Mangaka!

In partnership with the USA Chapter for 67 Blankets, the South African Embassy honored Nelson Mandela Day. The goal to encourage people in the USA to make and donate 670 blankets by 18 of July 2016, was surpassed with blankets received before and throughout the event.
Ms. N. Luti, Deputy Chief of Mission, led the event and the coordinator for 67 Blankets for Mandela Day, Ms. Veronica Buzby presented the blankets to the Central Union Mission and the Homeless Children’s Playtime Project.
Approximately 200 guests attended the Nelson Mandela Service Day. There was a performance by Sharon Katz and the Peace Train, who are currently touring the United States.
