    • Best route to Swakopmund from Johannesburg

      Johannesburg Nov 28, 2016 at 6:03 AM

      Hi there,

      I am planning to drive through to Swakopmund from Johannesburg in December but am not sure whether its better to travel through Botswana (which seems to be the shorter route at 17h35mins) or through the bottom of Namibia at 20h10mins)...
      Can anyone advise on the better route and give some suggestions with regards to where one can overnight?

      Your feedback would be greatly appreciated as we are feeling a little "lost" at the moment and still need to book accommodation along the route...

    • Alexandria

      by purps Online Now Nov 9, 2006 at 10:58 AM

      Hi there

      My name is Rosetta and I reside in Port Alfred.

      I went searching for info on the history of Alexandria and couldn't find what i
      am looking for however i found this website.

      I need info on something that happened there a looong time ago.

      there used to be a girls hostel which was also at a time a psychiatric hospital.
      This place is close to the Telkom building in Alexandria. Now, what i learnt is
      that this place burnt down and people say it is haunted. (how much of that is
      true i do not know and do not wanna go there to find out) :-)

      Do you know about this building? If so, do you know what it was called or if it
      was a hostel / psychiatric hospital at the time it burnt down? or if it was not
      a fire that destroyed the place.

      every piece of info i can get on it, will put me one step further in my task of
      completing my project.

      anyone with info to assist, reply to this post
