Burning photo CD's in SA

There's lots of discussions about storage devices for photos on the forum, however I've usually got by burning CD's in photo labs or internet places every couple of days while travelling.

So my question is, are cd burning facilities -internet cafe's and photo labs - readily available in SA? We'll be in Kruger, Chitwa Chitwa and then in Cape Town, and along the Garden Route.

Perhaps it's too general a question but I haven't see anyone mention this solution to storage issues before.

(we'll have 2 512mb cards with us...and no storage device)

I cant tell you whether the facility of burning your pics onto CD exists at Chitwa Chitwa or in Kruger. I can however tell you that you will definitely find many places in Cape Town that offers this facility and while on the Garden Route you will be able to have the cd's burnt in Port Elizabeth, Knysna, George and Oudtshoorn. You might be able to possibly find this facility in Mossel Bay too although I am unsure of this as I have never actively looked for a place that offers this service in this town.

Another tip is that you should take your camera USB download cable with you as you could well download your pics onto the hard drive of the establishment where you are staying and then transfer it onto CD or even easier would be to buy some temporary hard drive space on the net and simply upload all your pictues onto this hard drive as you travel. This will of course depend on whether your accommodation hosts have a broadband line connection otherwise you will be watching paint dry as you do the uploads.

Hope this all helps.

Enjoy SA when you visit us.

Very proudly part of the wonderful nation of South Africa
