Hi Felipe,

In answer to your question about where to stay in Capetown, in 1998, we stayed at the Breakwater Lodge, which was more than your budgeted amount. However, it was in a safe area (Victoria and Alfred Waterfront), so we were willing to pay a bit more than we usually do. I would think it would be hard to find a hotel in a safe area in Capetown for $30 US (about $46 Canadian). I am not sure if prices have risen in South Africa since we were there or not. We paid a total of $430 Canadian for, I think, five nights. We were only in Johannesburg for one night, and we stayed at a hotel near the airport; we did not go into the city at all.

Hope this helps.
