    • Area with pubs and restaurants

      Cape Town May 18, 2015 at 9:08 PM

      We are a couple in our 50s and 60s moving long term to Cape Town from Australia. We want to rent an apartment within walking distance to pubs and restaurants and a supermarket. Probably looking at a 2 bedroom for around R22k a month......
      Someone mentioned Big Bay as an option but that seems to be rather remote or isn't it? The city bowl was recommended but isn't that too noisy for us older folk?
      Are there any such areas in Cape Town?

    • re entry query

      South Africa May 24, 2015 at 12:28 AM

      Hi,

      •I am a UK citizen that travelled from the UK to Cape Town from 17 April 2015 - 04 May 2015
      •On arrival I received a Visitors Permit that would be due to expire on 16 July 2015
      •On leaving I received a Departure Stamp of 4 May 2015
      •I returned to the UK

      I was hoping to return to Cape Town to spend 6 weeks with friends from 15 June 2015 - 29 July 2015.
      I am looking for confirmation on whether this is possible. My question is, would I gain a new Visitors Permit on entry to Cape Town or would I still be entered under my old Visitors Permit which would require me to leave on 16 July 2015? I will be entering from the UK once again

      I have contacted home affairs but had a mixture of responses n I am just looking for some sort of clarification. Had anybody been in the same situation?

      Would really appreciate your help. Thanks.

      Hi all
      I am looking for the name and contact details of a store I visited whilst in Clarens in December.
      They stock all sorts of scented candles, fragrances and some jewellery. I have contacted Clarens Kado already and it seems it's not them. Does anyone have any ideas? It would be much appreciated!
      Thanks :)

      Recommendation for accommodation in the Bloem area

      Bloemfontein Nov 5, 2011 at 3:25 AM

      Hi
      We are a party of eight (two sprightly couples in their 70s plus a family of four with kids aged 8 and 5) looking for two nights accommodation in or around Bloem for the nights of 5th and 6th January 2012, which is proving to be surprisingly hard to find.
      Ideally we would prefer self catering, but otherwise affordable B&B or family-friendly hotel accommodation would be fine. We have our own transport, so we don't necessarily need to be in the city - we would also consider something in the Kimberly vicinity, although this wouldn't be first choice.
      Any ideas?
      Regards
      Cathy

    • Transport options between Harrismith and Kroonstad

      Free State Apr 27, 2011 at 12:25 PM

      Hello

      Within my planning for South Africa trip I have encountered a problem. I think it is not such a big thing, but surprisingly I can`t find anything on the net concerning the transport options between the towns of Harrismith and Kroonstad in Free State.

      I plan to visit Northern Drakensberg (Mont-aux-Sources, Sentinel, etc.), after them, by hotel transport to Harrismith, but from Harrismith, it seems, there is no publicly available transportation.

      Thanks in advance for any kind of advice or information.

      Franshoek Dec 24, 2002 at 12:20 PM

      What's going on? I posted a Q here yesterday, and I've received a reply but I can't read it, and I can't even find my original posting anymore. Was it something I said? Here's the question again: "Has anyone been to any "self-catering" cottages in Franschhoek? The guidebook I have recommends Klein Dassenberg, Blueberry Hill, Owl Cottage, and several others. The prices quoted are only a bit more expensive than a private room at a hostel, and they sound really nice. Was wondering if they really are as nice as they are described, for such a low price? any recommendations?"
