    • Nervous about going!

      Durban Yesterday

      Hi, i am a 20 year old student (female) and i am going to Durban for 3 weeks in June to visit a friend out there. I am a worrier by nature and just wondered if Durban is as scary as I have heard! I have never been outside of the EU before and am getting really nervous about going and wondered if anyone had any tips or advice for me when I'm out there! Am I right to be as worried about it as I am? Please no one say 'don't even think about going' as I've already booked my flights! I'm just starting to panic a bit about the crime and dangers from other people out there. I would be really grateful for advice or reassurance! Thank you!

    • Base Camp Trail @ Imfolozi Game Reserve, KZN

      South Africa Yesterday

      I'm looking for at least 2 people (up to 6) interested in a wild walking trail in the bush, at Imfolozi Game Reserve, South Africa.
      My boyfriend and I made a provisional booking, but unfortunately they need to reach a minimum of 4 people to confirm the trail - and none of our friends loves wildlife and game reserves like we do! :(
      It's a 4 days/ 3 nights walking trail, between 7km and 14km to cover each day. Nights are spent in a bush trail camp with safari tents. Food, drinks etc are all provided and carried for you.
      We are looking at 13-16 June or 14-17 June, but we are flexible on dates.
      If anyone is interested, I can send more info in private.

      2. Does minibus taxi run to Mafikeng? How early should I be there? 4am? 7am? Or even 12 noon?

    • Timings and cost of Underground Mining Tour and Gold Pour

      Johannesburg Oct 5, 2013 at 12:38 PM


      I am visiting Gold Reef City on 29th Dec (Sunday) and want to experience the Underground Mining Tour and Gold Pour. So, is there any particular time for the mining tour and Gold Pour? If yes, then what are they? I also want to know the duration of the tour.

      As its a Sunday, should I buy tickets online or are they easily available at the counter? When checked for online tickets, it gives the date and the time as 9.30am but I am planning to visit at 12.30pm. So will the tickets be valid in that case? Can the mining tour tickets also booked online?

      As I am spending only one day in Johannesburg, I dont want to mess up travelling without proper information. Any help and advice would be highly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance.

    • 2 or 3 days in Johannesburg?

      Johannesburg Aug 14, 2013 at 9:04 PM


      I am travelling to SA for the first time and plan on spending 2 or 3 days at Johannesburg. Firstly, I should note that for this trip we will not be visiting Kruger; as time instead is being allotted for Cape Town, Garden Route, Durban and Drakensberg (I have family in CT and Durban) - I am instead doing a couple of days in Addo and a night in a private game reserve close by.

      Here are the following activities I'd like to do in Joburg;

      - Soweto
      - Apartheid Museum
      - Lesedi Cultural Village and;
      - Crade of Humankind

      Do you think to do these 4 activites 2 days would be required or 3? The chief reason I'd like to know is because if I can squeeze it into 2 then perhaps I could add an extra day in Cape Town. If 3 days would be better then I don't particularly mind doing that either,

      Kind Regards!

      I need some information about this area. We are planning a tour starting from Johannesburg, ending in Cape Town 2 weeks in October. We want to visit Okavango, Moremi, Victoria Falls, Kruger Park and we need an advice about a good and reliable agency which can arrange us a package tour. Since we are 8 we cannot take the risk to arrange all the hotels and the tours by ourselves so we need a local assistance.
      Is there anyone to help us about recommending a good company? Or do you have any other recommendations?
