Camping in June 2010

by samconnie

I know i am crazy, but is camping doable in june?/ The hotels are getting too expensive ( everyone hiking their prices 300% to 700% )
Also where would be a good camping ground, Not to far from Soccer City and Ellis Park.
I think i can handle the cold being coming from Canada!

Camping is doable, but you would be better off hiring a car to get to and from the campsites. These are municipal sites, so are not really aimed at tourists. I would look through the classifieds to see what home-stays are available and possibly put up an ad to see if some-one would let you camp in their garden.

Hi there...for me personally camping is really crazy at that time of the year because its COLD-:) I might be able to help you or a least give you an alternative. I have a home I might be looking to rent out. how many people are you. my home is quite spacious-3 beds, a big lounge, tv room, dining room, double garage-near a police station so VERY SAFE.

Travel Tips for Johannesburg

Take a trip out to Sun City,...

by cherise

Take a trip out to Sun City, go on a safari game drive in the Pilansberg National Park, shop for African Arts & Crafts at the Rosebank Rooftop Market, shop for designer labels at the Sandton City Mall, see a view of Johannesburg from the top of the Carlton Center & take a guided township tour.

What to bring with?

by Jenniflower

Luggage with wheels is always a good idea, wherever you are travelling. Some ideas:

Light coloured clothing that doesnt absorb the sun as much as dark clothing.

Long-sleeved shirts and trousers will help protect you against the sun and possible insect bites.

A cap/hat that covers your head and neck.


Comfortable sandals and tackies/trainers/sneakers. Sun screen (at LEAST Factor 35 I would say), headache tablets, and usual little things like some plasters for blisters, cotton wool, germolene etc. Your camera, with charger, and an appropriate plug extension/adaptor. Have a map of the area handy, plus a local bird, flower and tree book. For this you also need a pair of good quality binoculars.

Metro FM

by cokes

While driving around South Africa , you can get a taste of Radio Metro. They play mostly RnB , House , Hip Hop ,Rap and Kwaito Music and you can catch this radio station anywhere in South Africa. Different Dj`s brings different music so be sure to checkout their website.

In Johannesburg you can catch Radio Metro at 96.4FM

Get yourself a decent...

by DukeyToo

Get yourself a decent map...the place is terribly signposted, so you have to look hard for streetnames. They can be written on the road curb sometimes.

There are a lot of places it can be dangerous to go at night, or even at day, so plan your routes carefully.

Bus transportation is adequate, if a bit eratic and difficult to get timetables for.

Most local trains are to be avoided, but intercity trains are ok. Especially the 'Blue Train', which is very luxurious.

More of a cafeteria than a restaurant

by cleocat about restaurant at the Lion Park

The restaurant offers a buffet on Sundays in the form of a braai. It is R50 per person and R30 per child under 12.

It also has hamburgers, pies, salads, drinks etc. We didn't try the buffet. Just had some pies.
Nice homemade with enough filling.

Chips was crisp and not oily. Nothing outstanding but not to bad for a snack.
