Just looking were I'm gonna stay and was wondering if there is also a card for backpackers where you get discounts at the hostels (as well as on activities)
If yes, where can I purchase them? At the hostels or Information Centres as usual?
If you are intending on buying the card in South Africa, I would recommend the following websites for companies:
A company called CoastingAfrica has a link to the following site which is world renowned....cards bought from here also allow you discounts on activites such as white shark diving etc.
POBox 544, Wierda Park, Pretoria, 0149
Tel/Fax: (012) 654 0819 Cell: 072 984 7025
A company called Seekers World Travel, have an office based in Fourways, Johannesburg. and they sell some good cards as well.
If you are buying them outside of SA, try STA Travel.
hope this helps
There is a string of Vip affilaited hostels in south africa, and the card can be bought at these hostels.
Just go to www.vipbackpackers.com look on the pages for your closest hostel
