    • 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.

    • Is driving through Eastern Cape ok since the floods?

      Province of Eastern Cape Mar 3, 2011 at 9:41 AM

      Hi All

      I was hoping someone could help - we're planning a trip to SA in early May, and want to drive from Durban down to Stellenbosch via the Eastern Cape. I'm thinking we'll take the N2 to East London, then up through Grahamstown to spend a night or two in Addo Elephant Park; from there back onto the N2 and along the coast to the Western Cape.

      I've read there's been some pretty major flooding in the Eastern Cape, so was just wondering if it's still ok to drive..... or has there been major damage to the roads? Also any comments on our proposed route?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks :)

    • Maseru to Addo - best route?

      Province of Eastern Cape Mar 31, 2010 at 10:42 PM

      We're traveling from Maseru to Addo by car and are debating the best route. We have two options, it seems:

      1) N8 to R709 through Wepener, R26 to N6, R61 to N10 at Craddock.


      2) N8 to Bloemfontein, N6 to R61 to N10 (as above)

      Option 1 seems to be the shortest distance, but Option 2 is almost entirely on larger roads. Any thoughts as to which is better?

      And if there is a better route to take to get from the N6 to the N10, I'd love to know that that, too.

    • seeking GOOD advice for stopover from Jo'berg to Wild Coast

      Province of Eastern Cape Oct 17, 2009 at 2:15 AM

      I am travelling in a group of three, one is a 13 year old. We arrive in Johannesburg airport and we plan to first visit LION PARK ( near Jo'berg) and spend a night in the "semi-luxury"? tents and see some animals!! and try a BRAAI, - we will slowly make our journey to Wild Coast to Tshana to Mdumbi Backpackers- but we want to break the trip and stay somewhere nice 6 HOURS OUTSIDE OF JOHANNESBURG and the next morning-ish continue by bus to Umtata ( to arrive at a reasonable hour to be collected by backpackers transport!)

      Is Maseru in Lesotho around 6 hours from Johannesburg? ( by something like greyhound bus??) Is Durban area ( Kwazulu) ( maybe the ZULU BEER route????) around 6 hours from Jo'berg and then after overnight somewhere in one of those locations heading to Wild Coast? I feel a bit baffled and the South Africa tourist website doesn't give me clear information how location distances are....

      I will be happy for some GOOD advice please! ( we are going to be travelling by one of those "greyhound" type of buses for the whole trip )

      Game reserve recommendations

      Province of Eastern Cape Dec 2, 2008 at 1:43 PM

      Hi, My friend and I (31 year old females), will be visiting the area in late May and are looking for some opinions or recommendations on Game reserves. So far we were looking at either Amakhala or Blaauwbosch. We have up to250USD per night per person budget. We are looking for a malaria free, big five reserve. Preferably we would like a lodge big enough so we aren't the only ones there, but not too big so that we are fighting for view on the safaris. Does anyone have an opinion on either of those or any other reserve in the area? We will also be spending a night in or around Addo after the Reserve visit.

    • Addo to CT itinerary

      Province of Eastern Cape Nov 4, 2008 at 9:24 PM

      After reading your advice and tons of info on the net I got the following itinerary.

      I will be driving from Addo to CT. Leaving Addo on 14.11, flying out of CT on 20.11. This cannot be changed. Everything in the middle can. Can someone comment on it? Am I missing something worthwhile?

      14. Leaving Addo in the morning, driving to Tsitsikamma National Park, hike there till dark, then drive to Knysha. Sleep at Knysha
      15. Hike in Knysha, stay overnight
      16. More hiking in Knysha, some time in Wilderness Park, then drive to Mossel Bay. Sleep at Mossel Bay
      17. Dive with sharks in the morning, then drive west, stopping at Hermanus for an hour or so in hope to see whales, sleep at some town on the way close to Cape Park turnoff (Strand?)
      Do I have enough daylight time for this day? Will it make more sense to skip Mossel Bay, drive to Gansbaai, sleep and dive there?
      18. Drive to Cape of Good Hope, stopping to see penguins, then to CT, go up Table Mountain on a chairlift (love to hike up but I don't see how I can fit it in), walk around waterfront. Either stay the night there or drive towards Stellenbosh.
      19. Tour the winelands, stay overnight at Stellenbosh
      20. fly out in the morning

      It doesn't seem that I have enough time but I am not sure how it could be improved. Any suggestions? What would you have done differently?
