Hi Ayesha,

I was in j'burg last january and had loads of fun shopping; one place that was huge fun was the kilomanjaro night club and some place called monte casino, nice place... Shopping was nice and affordable, they had beautiful malls and the flea market for crafts.

I made it to pretoria which isnt far from jo'burg in less than an hour; the plain view was quite exciting. Am not sure what the weather is like now and also sadly, didnt make it to sun city!

I hope you have loads of fun!

Edinburgh, United...

I would say choice between western or eastern cape - go for western.

Three days in Gauteng - you would get around in a self-drive hired car or ask your hotel to get you to various places.

Must sees and dos in Johannesburg - depends on what you are into - tour of Soweto, the Apartheid Museum, the Cradle of Humankind, Monte Casino Entertaintment Complex. the Newtown Precinct with takes in the Market Theatre.

Sun City - you can either go on the bus which takes about 3 hours from the north of Johannesburg or drive yourself and it will take about 2 hours. Pretoria from the north of Johannesburg takes about 40-50 minutes depending on what time of the day it is. Plenty of SA history in Pretoria - but again depends on what you are into as it's mostly Afrikaans history - Voortrekker monument, Pretoria Zoo, The Union Buildings, Paul Kruger Museum etc.

There are no 'city centre' attractions in Johannesburg, as in the city centre itself as everything has moved to the suburbs - only things left in the city are office buikdings basically.

Doing a three day Kruger tour booking in through the National Parks Board is much cheaper than going into a private game reserve but you are probably too late to book in through the parks website. But try - www.sanparks.co.za - you never know, you may get a cancellation.
