We are looking to buy a VW KOMBI CAMPERVAN in South Africa in August
Would any travellers have one for sale around that time? Or does anyone know anyone selling one? any good websites? thanks
Not wanting to sound like a big scaredy cat but to get to Jo'burg airport we need to either get a transfer leaving a Rosebank Hotel at say 0430 which is basically the middle of the night. Safety (not sleep) wise, are we better off transferring to an airport hotel the afternoon before?
Thank you in advance for your reply.
I have flights booked from London to Johannesburg.
Jo'burg to East London
East London to Cape Town
Cape Town to London.
Now need to make my seat choice.
Just wondered which side of the plane would give me the best views? In particular in and out of Cape Town which I imagine to be quite scenic? Not a vital question I know but as I am unlikely to return to S…
There are plenty of buses (Intercape, Greyhound etc) from J'burg to towns in Zim but apparently the visa processing at Beitbridge border takes 3-4 hours. So my question is if I buy a ticket from Jo'burg to say Masvingo, will the bus wait for 4 hours at the border? This does not seem to be the case when I look at their timetables. What do people do? I can't seem to find an answer to this online. Help please.
Many thanks as always!
We will leave St. Lucia to Kruger on July 14 where we have planned to stay for 4 days. After researching a lot in this forum, different camps and options we decided to stay 2 days in Kruger in Lower Sabie and the other two in a private reserve. We have been so naïve and haven't realized that July was so busy. Then, when I tried to book through San Parks for the first days and through their web sites in the private reserves ( rhino, elephant plains, ngala, mostwari, honeyguide and more…
I am flying into JNB and hoping only spending 1 day to do the Soweto Bike Tour.
What is the best or safest way to go from the airport to Lebo's Soweto Backpacking.
Or would it be better to stay in another area and go there in the morning?
As always, thanks for everyone's help!
Can anyone recommend a good tour company (but not crazy expensive) that does trips from Jo'burg to Blyde River Canyon and the area around it (Pinnacle, Waterfalls)? We don't want to go to Kruger.
I leave in a few hours for SA and am a little less prepared than usual....help please. Is there any public transport from JNB to Maboneng precinct? I did a search and there seems to be a Gautrain. What stop is closest to Fox Street? I'm trying to get to Curiocity Backpackers.
Also, a question re safety. It is not something I would worry about too much but I've never been to Jo'burg and a couple of posts were very apprehensive about safety. I arrive very early at the airport and have the…
Me and my husband are planning a road trip through South Africa and I have planned for 3 nights in Hluhluwe and 2 nights in St. Lucia. I see how close they are to each other on the map, so I'm just concerned is this too much time? Should we do just 4 nights in one place as a base or is it good to stay in both places?
The two guest houses I'm planning on staying at for now is Bushwillow in Hluhluwe, and the St. Lucia Guest House, in case anyone has any opinions on their locations...
