    • 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 Apr 22, 2014 at 4:40 AM

      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.

      I am having an impossible time trying to find a town and hotel for a quick night stay between PE and Durban. Umtata seems as if it might be the best, but I can't find a list of hotels.

OR, if you have suggestions, I would so appreciate it.

    • Garden Route - overnight stops?

      by missesg Online Now Feb 28, 2007 at 3:43 AM

      yes, me again :-D. Ok, so still pondering what to do when we get to PE, but have got a few weeks to figuer that one out still, but I am also struggling with our stopover locations as we drive from Cape Town to PE.
      I almost know the guidebook off by heart, and I've looked on countles websites, but there are so many fab places to stop, but we can only make 3 stopovers, and one of those will definately be Hermanus/Gansbaai. So, the other two... Knysna looks lovely, but it looks a long drive from Hermanus to Knysna.
      Am I right in guessing it will take between 3-4 hours to drive from Knysna to PE? And, where do you recommend we make our other stoppover?
      I'm sorry for all the questions - the more I try and research it myself using the guide books, the moer confused I get.

      My husband & I will be spending one night in Port Elizabeth, in early May, after driving along the Garden Route from Cape Town, before catching a flight to Johannesburg.
      We'll be arriving sometime in the afternoon, and our flight will be the following afternoon, so looking for somewhere not too far from the airport (although we will have a car, so maybe up to half hour drive?) - pref. by the coast.
      Unfortunately, dont think we will we have much time to explore Port Elizabeth itself on this occasion, but somewhere with a nice restaurant as well would be good.
      Any area, or hotel recommendations much appreciated :-)
