15 day overland safari

February 19 flights selling out

Hmmm, with SAA business class sold out and Mango Airlines sold out, I started wondering what was going on in Cape Town on the weekend of the 19th February. I'm sure one of our readers will let me know. The only things hitting my radar screen in Cape Town on that weekend are the Stormers vs the Waratahs at Newlands and the Wedding Pavillion at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. Cape Town Pride only starts on the 26th Feb, as does the Design Indaba and the Canal Walk Bridal Fair. On the plus side, BA business class is the cheapest ever on the flight route.

Childhood memories of Ingogo

Stephen Hayes shares his experiences of spending a couple of months in April and May 1948 at the Valley Inn Hotel in Ingogo (which is a small village in northern Natal, about halfway between Durban and Johannesburg). He swam in the river, learned how to play marbels, went for rides on ox wagons that came past laden with fire wood and went riding on donkeys. They were in Ingogo during the landmark 1948 general election when the National Party got in: "The grown-ups said that one  good thing about the election was that we would be able to get white bread again. We couldn’t get white bread during the war, and the Nats had promised that they would bring back white bread if they were elected. During the war my mother used to buy brown flour and sifted it to make white bread."
