Your experience needed

I will be finished my scuba trip and in Joburg early in Feb 2001. I need some cool ideas to spend another week starting and finishing in JBurg. Thanks

See the thread entitled "what to do in Jo'burg with kids" and a couple of other threads about Jo'burg. Some of the ideas will apply for adults as well.

You may not want to spend the entire week in Jo'burg. I think a visit to a game park is a must. There are some that are within a few hours drive from Jo'burg as well as those in or near Kruger (4-5 hr drive) or 1 hr flight. Sightseeing in Mmpumalanga (formerly the eastern Transvaal) includes Blyde River Canyon and other great sights.

Sun City is a few hrs away and has golf, watersports, water park, gambling tennis and a game reserve.

You may want to fly to Victoria Falls for a few days.

Lisa had good suggestions - Kruger and Blyde River Canyon are very do-able in a week. There is the Baz Bus, used a lot by backpackers, which does the route from Jo'Burg to the Cape, with people hopping off someplace, staying a few days, and then getting back on the bus. I've been to Kruger twice - used Kruger Park Backpackers for a camping safari there, as well as a tour of Blyde River. A year ago their costs were under $100 a day.
I've heard that Pilansberg (spelling>) game reserve near Jo'Burg is good. I can also recommend a hostel in Jo'Burg called the Explorers Club. I can provide you with e-mail address for all these folks if you'd like them.
