Hi All, I am going to SA in OCtober with my two daughters aged 7 and 8. I have not been back since 2002(left in 1995), and am fully aware that things have changed. At the moment I am getting quite a bit of heat from family and friends re my travelling with two kids as a woman on my own! I will rent a car in Jhb, and plans are to drive to Kruger for 4 nights, then Drakensberg, Bloemfontein, Nieu Bethesda and ending in Cape Town; taking the train back to Jhb. We have booked accommodation for most areas, I will only drive in daylight, will only go out at night to safe areas and generally think I am a safe traveller! So.. the question is how can I reassure my friends that I we will be fine as we won't be stupid in where we go ie no-go areas. I cannot believe that SA has become so unsafe since I have been there last. Honest opinion and feedback will be most appreciated! I would rather go to SA where I know my way around and still have the '6th sense' re safety, than taking my girls to a new, foreign country. Thanks!!
