Anybody been there on holiday / lived there?Saw a programme on TV last night featuring the wildlife of SA - what an absolutely stunning country (well, the bits I saw around the Cape of Good Hope).I really fancy a holiday there, but am not sure how safe it is these days around the Capetown and/or Jo'burg areas. There used to be all sorts of horror stories about the hazards of being a foreign tourist.Your thoughts, comments and ideas for an approx. 10 day stay will be welcomed.
Heard some dreadful stories about SA from SA'ers. A guy (ex SA plod) was telling us about how they would arrive at villages where a massacre had taken place. They had to be careful when moving around as it would often be left booby trapped. They would find grenades under bodies or live babies, so when they were moved, boom. .
Plus, they got some really cool snakes. If you see the one below, run! Run fast though as they can reach speeds of 40mph and beware as they not only chase you they have been known to track people down to their hotel rooms and break in and bite them.
