We are planning to visit Umfolozi and Hluhluwe National Parks and would appreciate comments on the Hilltop game lodge
How far from kruger national park and how good is Leopard Hill experience? Thanks
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?
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.

Thanks a lot,

How to calculate how much Rand needed for 20 days for food etc when on a tour
Has anyone had safety trouble while on tours
Will be allowed to carry some dry fruits, snacks and powders into South Africa? We will be visiting Johannesburg, Kruger, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.
How many days should I visit Johannesburg to get a good experience of the culture and past history?
We wish to do a walking tour with a good tour guide in Cape Town. We found Blue Monkey Tours very good, however, they are very pricey. Does anyone know of any other options? Any suggestions on good tours would be appreciated.
Has anyone visited the Lion Park in Joberg? There is a tour for about 5 hours from pick up to drop off. I will be there early August.
Which is a better place to buy souvenirs -- johannesburg or Cape Town? We want to pick up ostrich eggs, some bead work and masks, so where will we find it cheaper?
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?
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.
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.
I'm traveling from Cape Town to Durban by car.

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!

Hi, I really assistance in figuring this out.
We are flying into Johannesburg International airport on June 3rd at 12:20 pm. We are planning on hiring a car and driving to Nelspruit directly and stay a night there before heading to Kruger National Park. We are a family of 5 people.
1. Which car should we hire to drive down to KNP and from which company ?
2. Is the drive from Johannesburg to Nelspruit safe ? How much time will it take ? Should we stay at J'burg that night or is it ok to drive down ?
3. Good budget hotels (3-4 star) hotels in Nelspruit ? My parents can stay in 1 room and 3 of us in another. My budget is R 2500 for 2 two rooms total
After Nelspruit, early morning we want to go Kruger National Park early in the morning and start our tour there. We are at KNP for 2 nights - all of 4, 5 June and leaving 6th early morning.
4. Please suggest good camps/places to stay at KNP
5. My budget is (MAX) R 14,000 for 2 nights for 5 people, inclusive of accommodation, safari, food. Is it possible ?
Please help! Any information will be helpful! Thanks a lot!
We were planning on staying at Cape Town for 3 nights in June. There are 5 of us and we are not sure whats the best place to stay. I was hoping to get a villa for our family. There are websites like Villas in CapeTown and CapeVilla. Are they good ? My biggest worry is whether they are as good as the websites show them to be ?
Have anyone stayed at Villas in Cape Town and could you suggest me few? My budget is somewhere between R1700 to R2200 per night.
