Survivor: South Africa was the fifty-fifth season of Survivor. 

The season ended when Salewski won the title of Sole Survivor, beating Matthew and Natalie by a 5-4-0 jury vote at the Final Tribal Council. The season featured 18 contestants dubbed as "castaways" marooned on two separate beaches in South Africa. They were divided into two tribes: Albert in red and Victoria in blue. The tribes were named after cities in South Africa. On Day 19, the tribes merged into the black Shaka Zulu tribe. 

The main twist this season was the return of Matthew from Bermuda and Eleanor from Extravaganza. Both of their eliminations were considered "unjust" or "unfair." Matthew was not selected in a tribe swap and was sent to Outcast Island. Though he had a chance to survive, he was unfairly eliminated. Eleanor was one of the first voted out of the Airai tribe during the Tri-Eliminations for appearing weak. She was actually recovering from malaria. 

Furthermore, the tribes were divided by gender, the first time since Vanuatu and the fourth time overall, after GalapagosPolynesia, and Vanuatu.

This season received positive reviews. EW said, "After two mediocre seasons and one we never want to mention again, Survivor finally got it right! Great cast, great winner, great blindsides, and a classic twist." SUG said, "Definitely a step up from last season. Many moments when we were holding our armrests excitedly. Can't wait to see what's next season."
