I have just joined this forum and am really enjoying it, picking up lots of useful tips. We are flying from Ireland to Cape Town and then immediately setting out for Port Elizabeth. I am very interested in travelling by train, can anybody tell me if it is safe to do so and how long the journey would take? We will stay in CT the first night and then make our way to PE the next morning. We have 6 days to travel by hired car back to CT where we will be joining our daughter and remaining for 2 weeks. Would the train route be the same as the route we would travel in the car. I would like to see as much of the country as I could so thought this would be a good idea. How many nights would you recommend we stay in PE.
Thanks in advance
Cant wait to go to S.A.
