      Hi, hoping someone can answer this question. We are getting soooooo many differing opinions on this....we would like to drive from Kruger to Durban and from Easton London to Cape Town. Has anyone done these two routes? Any issues or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Diane

    • South Africa Safari options with a 5.5 yr old

      South Africa Oct 27, 2015 at 12:52 PM

      We are trying to plan a trip to SA from the US with our 5.5 yr old son for my 40th birthday. I (and he) really want to do several game drives. Are we not going to be able to since he is less than 6? Any recommended hotels/reserves where we can see the most?

      Also, I had heard that we didn't need yellow fever vaccinations for SA, is this true? What about malaria? We lived in India for almost a decade, so are used to being cautious with wearing long sleeves, etc

      Any advice on where to go in SA would be greatly appreciated. Right now we are mostly looking at Capetown and a safari somewhere.

      rainy days

      I will be in Hermanus next Monday with some visitors from abroad.
      The plan was to go to Betty's Bay Penguins and Harold Porter Garden then a cruise to see the whales. The weather forecast is appalling so I need a plan B in case I can't do any of the out doors activities. Thank you for your suggestions

      Hermanus in May

      by oRi_5 Online Now Jul 6, 2010 at 2:14 AM


      My husband and me are planning a trip to South Africa next May. Part of our planned itinerary includes a 1 night stay in Hermanus. I've read that whales are generally there in June. So I was wondering if there is anything else to do in Hermanus if there are no whales. Would it be better if we just skip Hermanus? We haven't booked our lodging as yet.

      Thanks in advance for any help!

      shark cage diving recommendation

      by klmousseau Online Now Dec 2, 2008 at 1:50 PM

      Hi. My friend and I are looking forward to Shark Cage Diving for my b-day in May 2009. We are looking for recommendations of Diving Operators. I've looked at a number of different sites and I'm looking for some opinions and info please. We would like a safe operator of course, but we aren't looking for the busiest one either. I saw some that are quite reputable, but I am apprehensive that the boat will be packed. I would like an operator that may have a smaller max of passenger with a cage that allows just 4 or less divers at a time with maximum viewing. We'll be staying in Hermanus with a car so transport is not a concern. Does anyone know if underwater/waterproof cameras are available for rental in town? are we required to wear wetsuits? How are the sightings in late May?

    • Whales
