There is lots of talk about various establishments in Townships around South Africa, gearing up to welcome guests to stay over at their places in these townships. They are promising to show you the real South Africa.

Well I must say, I am not sure whose reality they want you to experience ?
Townships are not places for the fans to hang out, they are not places that you want to stay overnight in.
If you want to see a township, go there on a guided tour and then leave.

These places are not safe, they are not safe during the day and they are definitely not safe at night.
Even if you are offered free accommodation in a township. you should turn it down.

There are lots of other places to look at, a township should not be considered.

Now here is something that I thought I have to share,
it is a fantastic new South African Music Video.
This video is raising funds for the South African Police, to combat crime.
It is rather sad that we have to raise money to fight crime,
when the money is needed in other areas.
But be that as it may, this is a great video and you have to watch it.

I hope you like it.

Now that you have seen that, take a look at this great piece of artistic expression.

Communicating in South Africa

Lets talk about, your options for keeping in contact – while you are in South Africa.
Well I am sure that you can, continue to use your own cell phone, with your own sim card.
The problem is, it could work out to be very expensive, at the end of the day.
You could also have problems with the reception, here is an easier suggestion.

When you land at the Airports in South Africa, go to any of the cell phone stores that they have.
Purchace a South African Sim Card, a “pay as you go”.
This will give you a South african number, to use while you are there.
Insert that sim card into your phone and use it to stay in Contact in South Africa.

All you have to do is, top up your air time,
You can buy air time at any service provider, they are all over the South Africa.
Don’t use this number to phone home , as that will just eat up your airtime and cost you plenty.
In South Africa, you get Vodacom, MTN, Cell C and Virgin Mobile.

You can get each member of your group one, that way you can always stay in touch.
This I would suggest you do. Communication and keeping in contact is very important as you know.

Flying to South Africa during the period of the Soccer World Cup, is going to be a bit hectic. There will be plenty of flights arriving at the airports and they are going to be running at full steam.

As it is, luggage landing in South Africa, is at risk of being tampered with and sometimes go totally missing.
During this period, there are bound to be incidents.

Make sure that you don’t pack any valuables in you luggage.
If you don’t have a hard stong suitcase with a good lock,
I suggest you spend a few bucks and get your luggage wrapped in protective plastic, before you board on your side.

The thought of having your stuff stolen, before you even start your journey is an awful thought, rather be Safe than sorry.

You can start looking for flights, both to South Africa and around South Africa. Click on the photo, you will have access to, two flight booking tools.
You can do a search on both and see who gives you the better deal.
Simple to use and you book directly, saving you money.

Since the mention of the World Cup being held in South Africa, the South African Rand has continued to gain on International currencies. The World Cup has become more expencive for foreign visitors.
The South African Rand,  has not been this strong, since before 1994.

We are not talking about the old days when it was R2 – 1$.
If it was the old days, then it would cost a fortune.

We are talking about the New South Africa.

Exchange rates where great, for the tourist at R10 – 1$ not so long ago.

We are currently sitting at $1 – R 7.2865 as at the 15th of March 2010, with just a few months to go.

The Rand has gained up to 30% , since the start of the bidding for 2010.
