En 2019 Sudáfrica tenía una población de 58,5 millones de personas. El país tiene una superficie terrestre de 1.220.000 km². De ellos, alrededor del 11% de la tierra es cultivable. Existen importantes variaciones ecológicas que van desde condiciones de sequedad (desierto y semidesierto) en el oeste hasta dos franjas de mayor pluviosidad en el este. Se considera que Sudáfrica es un país con escasez de agua, escasez que se ve agravada por la extrema desigualdad social y económica. Sólo el 28% de la superficie terrestre recibe 600 mm o más de lluvia al año. Esto significa que la mayor parte de la tierra sólo es apta para la producción ganadera o silvestre.
