South Africa Thoughts:


What can you say here!  We’ve been to very poor countries on our travels, countries with troubles, but none so quite messed up as this place.  City life is confined to just staying safe with maximum security.  You can see why so many South Africans live in the UK!  Some South Africans we met seemed to be deep down racists who still expect things done for them, you can hear it in their conversations and see it in public places.  But get away from all that crap and the country is a beautiful place with lots of great wild animals and coast line.  Even though SA is not quite ready for mass tourism yet I just hope they get there for the 2010 World Cup.  Also long gone are the days of it being cheap here as money now easily falls out your pockets just getting by with the basics!… Terry


This is a country with so many problems still and not a place you can easily relax, but you can’t fault it for its beautiful countryside, mountains and wilderness.  You don’t realise how much we take our safety and security for granted in many ways until you visit a country like this where people are so safety and crime conscious.  There is so much natural wilderness here though and the safari, trip to the Drakensburg and journey along the Garden Route were all real highlights and really showed me the real South Africa… Rachel
