Road travel Capetown to Johannesburg  (5 Answers)

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  (1 Answer)

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  (16 Answers)

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?  (2 Answers)

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  (2 Answers)

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.

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.

In need of a last minute flight deal  (4 Answers)

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  (1 Answer)

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
