NEW YORK, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The newest Bachelor, Brad Womack, may yet find his true love in SOUTH AFRICA, the extraordinary, beguiling, life-changing destination where everything is possible.

The series finale will be set in and around Cape Town, the beautiful Mother City. Brad's last two Bachelorettes will be hosted by One&Only Cape Town, South Africa's premiere urban luxury resort, at its spectacular location in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront with stunning views of Table Mountain.

The last date activities will reflect the amazing array of fun and fantastic experiences South Africa has to offer. An exhilarating, heart-stopping dive with the Great White sharks, a true test of commitment, will take place out at Dyer Island, home to a 30,000 strong Cape Fur Seal colony that is the Great White Shark's primary food source.

They will journey to the very tip of Africa for a scrumptious picnic at the beautiful Cape Point, where they will view the spot where the mighty Atlantic and Indian oceans meet at the Cape of Good Hope.
