We're booked into a hotel close to OR Tambo this weekend prior to a tour. I'd expected to ask the hotel to provide help with a taxi/shuttle but I'm getting no response from them.
If we need a taxi from the airport does anyone have any advice or suggestions on taxi firms to use for a pre-booked car? I'll be with my wife and daughter so safety is more important than lowest price.
I have 2 days in Johannesburg and was wondering what to do other than see animals or go to cape town
Where is there good safe shopping and walking around in johannesburg
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?

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:)
•I am a UK citizen that travelled from the UK to Cape Town from 17 April 2015 - 04 May 2015
•On arrival I received a Visitors Permit that would be due to expire on 16 July 2015
•On leaving I received a Departure Stamp of 4 May 2015
•I returned to the UK
I was hoping to return to Cape Town to spend 6 weeks with friends from 15 June 2015 - 29 July 2015.
I am looking for confirmation on whether this is possible. My question is, would I gain a new Visitors Permit on entry to Cape Town or would I still be entered under my old Visitors Permit which would require me to leave on 16 July 2015? I will be entering from the UK once again
I have contacted home affairs but had a mixture of responses n I am just looking for some sort of clarification. Had anybody been in the same situation?
Would really appreciate your help. Thanks.

We are a couple in our 50s and 60s moving long term to Cape Town from Australia. We want to rent an apartment within walking distance to pubs and restaurants and a supermarket. Probably looking at a 2 bedroom for around R22k a month......
Someone mentioned Big Bay as an option but that seems to be rather remote or isn't it? The city bowl was recommended but isn't that too noisy for us older folk?
Are there any such areas in Cape Town?

I feel a bit silly asking this. I come from Cape Town but moved away about a decade ago. I am going back in a few months and want to take my girlfriend for a nice simple lunch or even a picnic somewhere with a view. I know all the usual spots, but I'm looking for something a little more different. I'm not looking for anywhere flashy, rather something relaxed but nice. Any ideas?
Are there any gay bars, pubs or cruising spots in Hermanus
Hello, my husband and I - active seniors - are arriving at 8 in the morning at Cape Town International airport. We will then pick up our rental car. We are planning on doing the following that day, before driving to our booked accommodation in Blaubergstrand: drive from the airport to Kirstenbosch, spend about 3 hours there, maybe grab a bit of lunch, and then drive to the Table Mountain cable-car to go up with an afternoon ticket.
My questions are this:
1) Does that sound like a good itinerary for the first day? Since we're coming from Europe we won't be jet lagged. We'll be in Cape Town for three more full days, when we'll be going on a wine tour, to Robben Island (have already booked for the next day, Sunday), Bo-kaap, and a full day to the Cape of Good Hope, but I thought getting an overview of the city from Table Mountain would be a good idea. Or should we do Table Mountain in the morning and Kirstenbosch in the afternoon?
2) I understand there will be a marathon in town on Saturday 4th, so will there be any roads on the way to either Kirstenbosch or Table Mountain from the airport that will be close?
Thanks so much for some feedback!

Arriving on 28 May at 7 10 am on an International flight (from Europe) and then leaving on 29th May to Asia. Would appreciate any help regarding such a short stay in JNB. Of course one hears about the crime etc in RSA. Stay near the airport? take the Gauteng Train to Sandton? or fly off to CPT where I have friends? Muito Obrigado.
