Hi Aubrey we are going to Cabana Beach on 8th Sept. First visit to South Africa to mark my retirement. Can you help with a few questions please? Did you buy currency in the UK? Is it best to hire a taxi from the airport or through Cabana Beach? Did you feel safe going out and about at night or in the day? We will be staying in a studio. Did you see any of them? Any more tips please?
hi, we live in the village and have had timeshare (which we still use) since inception. i cannot agree with safety comments. if the promenade is quiet you need to be very aware if alone and do not carry anything other that what you have to. there is crime in the area, as there is anywhere these days. if possible rather get hotel to give you a lift at night except for pearls which is right next door. the studios are next to adult pool which means you just have to walk out and the pool and lounges are there. if you prefer a view then contact the timeshare lady who allocates the rooms and see if you can get a room above these but then you have to walk to the steps and go down to pool. have a wonderful time.
