Public nudity is NOT a social norm in Africa. However, in South Africa, attitudes towards naturism are now more accepting after 1994. There is a small number of beaches in South Africa, such as the Sandy Beach and Mpenjati, where nudity is accepted.There are also some resorts or campgrounds where naturism is practiced. Rooms, cottage, cabins or huts are available for rental in campgrounds.
