Hopefully we'll be back to exploring London's magical streets soon!

There are no direct flights connecting South Africa to the UK currently.

The best airline safety video ever?

The Purple shall rule! "We are two girls from Norway wanting to rent a car to drive from Johannesburg to Cape Town around the 19th/ 20th of november. We want to spend two weeks driving down all the coast from Durban to Cape Town, and also stopping by Drakensberg and Lesotho. We are looking for two/three other people that also want to do the same route, to share expenses and also to have some good travel company :) If someone is interested please contact me.
