Driving from Pilanesberg to Howick – can anyone please advise if the driving conditions are good and safe? We are plannings day trip starting 8am ish to take a stop over at lion and Safari park near Johannesburg and then head towards Drakensberg. We have kids on board. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
I’m heading to Egypt in a couple of weeks and just trying to work out logistics. Could use some suggestions 🙂
Planning to stay for around 7 nights total looking something like this:
Cairo – 2 nights (2 full days to explore)
Luxor – 4-5 nights (3.5-4.5 full days to explore)
Aswan – 0-1 night
The hard part seems to be getting between Aswan and Luxor as I will fly to the area from Cairo and back out from the last place I visit. Based on what others have said it looks like minibus/taxi. Is a taxi a private driver similar to those in Bali? How can I make sure I get a trustworthy one? (given that my luggage will be in the car if we make stops)
Is it worth visiting Aswan and cutting in to Luxor days/extending the trip for this area? Things that seem cool are Abu Simbel and Kom Ombo but I don’t want it to be more of the same.
Also what is the best way to see the sights (Pyramids, Luxor, Aswan), is it guided tour with transport or make your own way?
I plan to visit Betong and stay at Winter Flower Garden Resort chalet. But I could not find any contact details. Can anybody please help?
Hi folks i am flying to luxor via Cairo on the 4th of February i get into cairo at 5:20 am and my flight to luxor is at 07:10 is that enough time to obtain a visa or will i be able to get one in luxor. Also my Passport is Irish but i have a UAE identiy card will this allow me entry to egypt without a visa out of curiosity. Thanking you in advance.
Does anyone know of a tour company (preferably by speedboat) that leaves from Koh Samui that goes to Ang Thong that includes kayaking AND a hike to the Ko Wua Tula viewpoint? I’ve spend days looking for one but it always seems like it’s either or.
I was thinking of using an unlocked cheap phone ( bought in U.K.) and buying a South African sim to make calls in SA. Would this work and be easy to manage?
Well I have been in Egypt for a month and I traveled all over the place.( Mount Sinai, white desert black desert safari ,Luxor, Dahab,Sharm el Sherik,Cairo,Hurghada , Port Ghalib .
