    • Weather November

      California Feb 1, 2017 at 1:44 AM

      I know I asked yesterday about Florida but we are also looking at Palm/Desert Springs California - what is the weather liable to be like in November

      Will the roads be snow free to Las Vegas and what is the weather liable to be like in Vegas in November.

      Plan to possibly fly to Los Angeles - use Desert/Palm Springs and tour from there and possibly take a few days out to visit Vegas - could even fly into Vegas if the flights were cheaper

      Many thanks for so many questions

      We are arriving at 26.September at LAX

      Our flight - LX40 Swiss - will arrive at 4:30PM, we checked online that is usually on time.

      We want to fly the same day from LAX to Las vegas. How much stopover time should we calculate?

      Possible flights:

      9:05 PM - United
      10:40 PM - United

      We currently looking at the 7:05 PM, but we don't know, is 2.5 hrs enough for transfer - to less or to much?

      We plan to drive a rental car from Capetown to Johannesburg in early June. Being new to South Africa, we have these questions:
      1. Is this route safe for tourists?
      2. Are there notable attractions along this route?

      Prepaid SIM and mobile web

      by schmechi Online Now Jun 21, 2010 at 12:43 PM

      Which prepaid SIM you'd recommend? I'll be in Cape town and Kriger park... Will you get the SIM card in supermarkets?

      And is there a cheap opportunity for using the internet on my laptop? Some mobile web provider who sells MBs without contract?

    • Capetown and Safari

      by Safari2010 Online Now Jun 10, 2010 at 8:53 PM

      We will be traveling to Capetown for the first time and would like to know what top things we MUST do and SEE in Capetown. Also, I know a lot of people have mentioned that Capetown is not a safari destination but I REALLY want to see a safari before I leave South Africa. Would you please recommend a few good safari tours that we can take? We would not mind flying to that destination, or what we prefer is a tour that will include airfare to that safari destination and lodging then back to CPT which is where we will depart CPT. Please help! WE heard that Kruger is a good place to see Big 5. Is it true? Are there any tours leaving from CPT TO Kruger?

      Where to stay? Waterfront or Long Street?

      by schmechi Online Now Jun 19, 2009 at 1:58 AM

      Where should we book our hotel? Around Long street or near V & A Waterfront? It is important, that we can go out at night, but we will also visit all major sights and do excursions by a hired car.

      Btw, we will arrive during the WC 2010, so will there be Fanfest like in Germany 2006? Does anybody know, where this area is planned?

      Robben Island & misc-booking a tour

      by gizzer1 Online Now May 4, 2007 at 2:46 PM

      First time visit to Capetown, SA. Want to see Robben Island. Prefer to buy tickets when I arrive. If so, where at?
      If best to buy ahead online, can someone provide URL?

      Have a full free day, perhaps see wine country. Is it worth it?
      If yes, please recommend tour companies in Capetown to book tour. Help if their URL is given.

      thanks,
      gizzer1

      My wife, 2 boys, ages 13 and 10, and myself are going to S. Africa around the 1st of February, 07. We want to get up into Namibia and Botswana as well. We will be flying in from SE Asia to either Johannesberg or Capetown or visa versa, which ever makes the most sense. We have around 2 to 2 and a half months for this leg of our RTW trip. We are on a pretty tight budget, but understand that going to these areas won't necessarily be inexpensive. Problem is, we don't quite know how to approach travel there. Do we try to just get onto an overland safari for 21 days (they don't want kids on these)? Do we try to rent a car? Do we try local trasportation to get from country to country? Do we do a combination of these? We are open for anything. We also don't want to do a typical "family" safari, since our kids have shown they can handle pretty much any tough traveling, but will want to do a budget safari at some point. We would also be interested in helping out at an orphanage or school for a time. Is there someone to call in S. Africa that can answer most of these questioins? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
      Thanks.

      In need of a last minute flight deal

      by spirit8665 Online Now Oct 23, 2006 at 7:51 PM

      Hello new travel family!

      I have the amazing opportunity to participate in a 45 day tour covering Capetown, Namibia, Kenya and Tanzania. The catch is that I have to be in Capetown by Nov 25th...yeah, just 30 days away. Does anyone know of any last minute flight deals at really, really good prices? I've checked some airlines already and the fares are hefty. I'll even settle (if I must) as being a piece of luggage on a private jet...again, if I must :). Open for suggetions. THANKS!!

      Transfers and currency

      by darrensunley Online Now Dec 29, 2004 at 3:21 AM

      Hi, I was hoping someone could tell me what the best way to get from the airport to near the V&A waterfront (to the Capetonian hotel actually) would be on arriving ... are there any transfer buses ?? Should I just get a taxi ?? Is there an underground ?? Also, does anyone have any recommendations as to whether to exchange money within Capetown or just do it in England before leaving ... do I get better rates when I'm there ?? Cheers, Darren
