"News withdrawal" Cape Town Packing List Tip by DesertRat

Cape Town What to Pack: 32 reviews and 17 photos

Miscellaneous: If you're a news-a-holic like me, you're going to have a problem because very few B&Bs or guest houses appear to provide satellite TV channels to their guests. There is almost no international news on South African TV stations and not much more on the radio. There isn't even a whole lot in the newspapers. My suggestion is to bring a digital, portable, shortwave radio along. I neglected to pack mine this trip and deeply regretted it.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
