Normally, sovereign governments need foreign nationals to obtain entrance visas before allowing them to enter their territory. Some countries, however, may relax those laws in order to encourage travel, tourism, or business within their borders, or even just to improve their relations with specific countries; these are the countries that fill up the South Africa passport Visa-Free countries list, which includes countries such as the United States and Canada.
It is because of the strong international relations policies of the government, as well as the general good behavior of South African people who have traveled to other countries, that your passports are respected around the world.
