    • Safety on trains Observatory/ Newlands

      Cape Town Dec 29, 2014 at 6:28 PM

      Hi everyone
      My girlfriend is gonna go to Cape Town for two months to improve her Enlish. Since she read about the safety
      situation (not walking the streets after nightfall, if possible stay away from trains, robbery, violation(!) and many more) in Cape Town she became a little worried and to be honest me too.
      Is there any local or someone who knows these places who could give us some insight on the actual safety situation in the areas Observatory and Newlands and what is the safest way to commute between those areas without using the train (since its not advisable to use it)?
      Thanks in advance

    • Staying in Time Share Locations a Good Choice?

      South Africa Jan 22, 2015 at 2:08 PM

      Hello all. Planning a trip to South Africa for my girlfriend and myself, and was wondering if anyone had any feedback on staying in time share resorts in regards to safaris. A friend offered me his timeshare at two locations; the Mjejane Game Reserve and SunSwop at Sabi River Sun. If anyone has any input on either of these resorts or staying in timeshares in general that would be a great help.

      Thanks

    • Visa Regulations

      South Africa Jan 15, 2015 at 6:01 AM

      Hi All, I am a new member and l may have posted this question before, so forgive me if l have.
      Arrived in Cape Town as tourists on 90 day visa. Have usually extended by going to Home Affairs with paperwork. Rules have changed and although we have submitted the correct papers within the 60 day time limit we have heard of delays of over the 60 days, So not to be caught out and banned as undesirable, we have bought tickets to return to the UK before our visa expires and will return 5 days later after it expires. We have been told by Home Affairs that this is acceptable and we will get another 90 day visa. Does anyone know different ? Help please.

      Hiya, we are planning to head to SA over Easter so 1st week of April, please can you send a 8 day Itinerary/plan to arrive in Jo'berg and to head towards Kruger. Is End MArch/April a good time to visit?

      Other Questions

      1. And should we include Botswana.

      3. Can one book game reserve accomadation on-line.

      Many 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.

      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?"
