“What happens if your passport is stolen/lost while abroad?”
“Registration of South Africans Abroad” (with a link to the ROSA online registration page)
“Yellow Fever Requirements” (essential reading this – mess it up and you could be refused
“The best travel tips”
And much more……

Keith is our SPORT fanatic and will be giving his suggestions and opinions in a separate page. Cindy is our ‘homebody’ and she will write about interesting stuff happening in and around the hotel and our area (VILLA DIARY).
Then I thought we should share some of the fun stories (and often uplifting ones as well) sent to us in a GUEST DIARY.
So the tabs at the top of the blog are:
We look forward to meeting you at AN AFRICAN VILLA – oh, by the way, frequent visitors at the Villa are Brandi (a golden retriever) and Taylor and Monty (two daschunds).
