Si
Nice one !
Where are you going ??
My sister married a Zimbo 20+ years ago and has been down that way ever since. They're in Bryanston in Jo'burg now - I've been down loads and nearly moved over there a couple of years ago.
Pirates is my team :D

I know I'm going to Southern South Africa, I think either Jo'burg or Cape Town. One of them I'm staying in, the other I stop off at or get the hired car from. :D

Hmmm ... it's a big place, you know ? Jo'burg is in the north east, Durban's on the south east (Indian Ocean) coast while Cape Town is WAAAAY over on the west coast, right down the bottom of the continent. If you were to drive from Jo'burg to Cape Town, it would take you a day even if there were two of you taking turns.
You can get direct flights to Cape Town from London - they're common enough - but sometimes you stop at Jo' and change there.

Either way, it's a beautiful country with friendly locals.
Don't worry about the crime thing too much - you probably won't be going to the townships where most of it happens, but obviously be wary of flashing cash, waving your phone about or carrying a big camera around. Just use your head, really.

You'll find it really cheap, too - I mean, everything compared to the UK.

Oh, and the ratio of single women to straight men in Cape Town is something silly like 8:1 :D
It's the gay capital of the southern hemisphere so there's always loads going on and lots of lovely ladies to play with - have fun !

Not sure what we are doing at the moment either Pavilion or Whistlestop. I've met Dave a few times so if it is the Pav then I'll look out for him.

That's great as I say I have a couple of lads I haven't seen for ages so I'd like a beer with them.
