    • Best route to Swakopmund from Johannesburg

      by Darkwingdana Online Now 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...

      transit from Joberg out to caves

      by sarahbayle Online Now Jul 31, 2016 at 10:37 AM

      I won't have a car in Joberg and am considering going to the Cradle of Humankind Sterkfontein Caves. Is it easy enough to get out there via a mini taxi or ??? If I get on a tour it seems I end up spending top dollar just to get there and can go through the caves with a tour guide already at the spot. I want to squeeze in the Aparteid Museum and the hop on hop off bus tour and the caves in one day.
      Any input?

      This would be my first time travelling to Johannesburg. I will be going there on a business trip at the end of this month. Is personal safety a concern for a foreigner (I am an Indian so I will easily look one) on the streets of Johannesburg? Can I safely go around the city visiting different offices during the day and malls/restaurants during the evenings and nights all by myself?

      I will be visitng friends and family at the end of August and have checked the weather forecast. It calls for highs right around 80 degrees farenheit or above and lows around 50.

      Last time I visited in August, I saw women wearing long sleeves and pants, dark colors, sweaters and boots! I will boil to death in those clothes. Can I wear shorts without looking ridiculous? Can I wear white jeans, capris or shorts? Leaving very soon and would love some fashion/packing advice.

      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.
