|Subject: Re: Capetown and Sydney|
When my husband &I were in Cape Town for a conference in 1999, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Garden Court, which was safe, but inconveniently located. I'd recommend looking in the Rough Guide (http://www.roughguides.com); we used it to find lodging once we got out of the city &it didn't steer us wrong. Also try searching and/or emailing Cape Town Tourism (http://www.cape-town.org). South Africa has a very well-developed tourism infrastructure and they will probably be able to help you.
My husband wrote up a travelogue of our trip which you can read at: http://home.earthlink.net/~rlindstrom/rsarept/rsa1.htm Feel free to email if you have any questions.
