Accommodations In South Africa During The FIFA 2010 World Cup
With just a few months to go, the games will begin!!! The kick-off at the FIFA 2010 World Cup brings together millions of screaming, cheering fans to watch their favorite team win. Now if you are one of those lucky people that will be watching a game, I do hope you have your accommodation booked because as of now numerous hotels are fully booked. However if you are making this trip a real vacation, take a look at a few of these resorts.
Many of the resorts are outside of the major cities but most of these resorts will have full access to drive you in and out of Cape Town’s Green Point Stadium. So far the best resort to look for is among a group called Beekman, which is located right on the Atlantic and featuring the perfect beach location and only 30 min drive to the centre of all the chaotic fun. Another great resort is located near Johannesburg’s soccer city Stadium, called Waterberg Game Park. It is set in a beautiful 750-hectare game park, surrounded by wildlife, and the perfect opportunity to enjoy luxurious five star amenities. Now if you are looking for something in a reasonable price range, check out accommodations such as three star Sunshine Bay Beach Club in surfer’s paradise of Jeffrey’s Bay. This hotel is located near Port Elizabeth. So if you are an advocated surfer, this would be the perfect spot of you.
