Hi , may be you can help us, we are travelling next week to Durban and staying there for a couple of days and then hiring a game in Hluluwe for 3 days , on the next day we wanted to drive to the Drakensberg mountains to be able to see something different, beach - game - mountains.... do you know if we need to take the malaria pills? we only have this week and next week before the weekend so we the time is running out...
do you know also how long would it take us to drive from Hluluwe to the Drakensberg mountains and from there back to Durban ? as our plan was to drive back to Durban on the day we have to fly back to London.
Hope you are able to help us,
thank you very much!
How much would it cost to go from the airport to House on York(7 York Street, Kensington, South Bedfordview, 2047 Johannesburg)? My hotel suggests that it is best for them to arrange a pick up which would cost anywhere between 560 to 600 rands for the four of us. Is this correct? In the past we have found that taking a taxi from the airport is cheaper than arranging through the hotel. Please let me know.
We are a group of friends planning a road trip from cape town through africa to the UK with a kombi.
The reason why we are using a Kombi is so that we will have enough space and we want to fit a Toyota motor in the bus.-which Toyota motor would you guys suggest and is there enough spares available in African countries?
We don't have much time so we want to cover as much road as possible in a short amount of time.
We have done a southern africa trip with a fiat strada and covered 10000km,s in 18 days and want to go big this time.
Our concern is that do we need medical certificates,visas for some countries, which road would be the best to take and the safest so that we wont get stuck in mud and can we get pre-treatment for diseases such as Malaria?
Any advice or ideas would be much appreciated.
I'm looking for a safe way to get from Johannesburg park station to Tambo airport.
Do you know any busses I can take? Are they safe for tourists?
Are there other safe ways to get from park station to the airport?
Thanks a lot,
We have one full day in Johannesburg. I looked around at city tours but did not find anything interesting. I do not want to walk around Museums or residences of past leaders. Are there any other suggestions? We wish to have a quick ride through the city and then do some off beat place if there is any in Johannesburg. Any suggestions on what we could do will be helpful.
The tour that I came across for half a day covering Johannesburg and Soweto costs 600 rands per person. Would it be cheaper to hire a cab for the whole day?
I just heard about tuk tuks being introduced in J'burg recently. Has anyone used them? Do they have meters by which we know how much to pay?
We were planning on taking the hop on and hop off buses, but after that tour we want to get to Montecasino, would it be sensible to hire a tuk tuk to and from Montecasino?
Could someone suggest a good car rental company? We are a family of four -- husband, wife and two teenaged boys. We would need a car to go from J'burg to Kruger and back for four days and then from PE through the Garden Route to CT and then maybe in CT for 4 days.
Could you also suggest which brand of car we should hire? We will be having at least 3 suitcases.
Any suggestions regarding self drive would be much appreciated.
Hi, my husband and I are coming again to SA for the 4th time in November. We are staying in Cape Town for 4 days and wondered if anyone out there can give us anymore ideas on what to do, where to go. We've done the usual Table Mountain, Robben Island etc, I've read about the Africa Dance Theatre in Cape Town - is this worth a visit - got some good reviews on Trip Advisor? Also what about the 2 Oceans Aquarium on the V&A Waterfront? Any new ideas would be grateful. We're travelling the Garden Route and will be staying at various places en route. One of the places is Plet Bay - staying at the Redbourne Country Lodge. This will be the first time we've stayed here, we'll be here for 3 days - what is there to do around this area?...see or do? Then on from there we're at Beluga House, Wilderness - again any good ideas - see/do/interesting places etc etc.
Your help is always grateful!
