The owners of the hostels in SA are not really helpful bunch to backpackers.
Their websites lack info on how to get there on public transport, and when you ask they either ignore you, or write "Many backpackers arrive using public taxis that the local people use".
Now I have no idea what that means, and how to find one such thing. How to book it?
Is that true that SA is country for only tourist with lots of money and cars?
