    • Safety on trains Observatory/ Newlands

      Cape Town Dec 29, 2014 at 6:28 PM

      Hi everyone
      My girlfriend is gonna go to Cape Town for two months to improve her Enlish. Since she read about the safety
      situation (not walking the streets after nightfall, if possible stay away from trains, robbery, violation(!) and many more) in Cape Town she became a little worried and to be honest me too.
      Is there any local or someone who knows these places who could give us some insight on the actual safety situation in the areas Observatory and Newlands and what is the safest way to commute between those areas without using the train (since its not advisable to use it)?
      Thanks in advance

    • Staying in Time Share Locations a Good Choice?

      South Africa Jan 22, 2015 at 2:08 PM

      Hello all. Planning a trip to South Africa for my girlfriend and myself, and was wondering if anyone had any feedback on staying in time share resorts in regards to safaris. A friend offered me his timeshare at two locations; the Mjejane Game Reserve and SunSwop at Sabi River Sun. If anyone has any input on either of these resorts or staying in timeshares in general that would be a great help.

    • Visa Regulations

      South Africa Jan 15, 2015 at 6:01 AM

      Hi All, I am a new member and l may have posted this question before, so forgive me if l have.
      Arrived in Cape Town as tourists on 90 day visa. Have usually extended by going to Home Affairs with paperwork. Rules have changed and although we have submitted the correct papers within the 60 day time limit we have heard of delays of over the 60 days, So not to be caught out and banned as undesirable, we have bought tickets to return to the UK before our visa expires and will return 5 days later after it expires. We have been told by Home Affairs that this is acceptable and we will get another 90 day visa. Does anyone know different ? Help please.

      3. Can one book game reserve accomadation on-line.

      Many thanks

If anyone of you have already visited, kindly tell me the timings, duration of Safari and the cost per person. The tour should include transfers from and back to the hotel.
