    • transport from Johannesburg to Clarens

    • Visa trouble

      South Africa 3 hours ago


      I was volunteering in Johannesburg 5 years ago for several months. Whilst out there I had to extend my visa so I followed the embassy instructions. However, when I arrived at the airport to depart I was informed that my paper work had not been processed and as a result I had outstayed my visa. I cannot remember the details of the conversation and no longer have any of the relevant paperwork but I think there was mention of a fine that I could not pay at the time. I have scoured my passport and do not appear to have any records or marks indicating that I outstayed or that I have a fine due. I am due to be returning in August for a two week voluntary project. Is it worth attempting to contact the embassy before travelling? Has anyone been in a similar situation?

    • July 6-8th 2015 Kruger Park BUDGET TRIP

      Kruger National Park Jun 12, 2015 at 3:53 AM

      Hello Everyone:)
      Together with my friend we will be travelling from CT to Kruger Park 6th of July early morning (either OR Tambo Johannesburg airport or Hoedspruit airport) and after 3 days safari we will be going back to George Town (probably from OR Tambo Johannesburg airport). We have a question if somebody is going to Kruger Park those dates and maybe would like to rent a car with us or maybe some safari operator would like to take us:) We have around 4500-5000 rands per person to spend. Not a lot but we are willing to spend nights under bare sky just to experience the most of wild nature:)

      Please advise,

      around 9am, Drive to Uitenhage, look at some of the museums there and
      then back to Port Elizabeth, look at some local attractions e.g.
      Bayworld, air force museum etc and then drop me at the airport around
      5pm the same day?

      Hi everyone,
      Any recommendations for towns, areas and accommodation? It is a week long getaway trip for 2. We are using a car. Hiking areas would be great! Or any advice on how to travel carefully on a tight budget between 2.

      rainy days

      by Xtine9 Online Now Aug 8, 2013 at 3:52 AM

      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?
