I live in Pretoria and have rescently toured much of South Africa. I try to include only the places that I have actually visited. Just tell me if you need a 'field agent' to revisit some places...
A friend has also toured Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia rescently, so I'll add some of her photos and knowledge. Perhaps we should make a guide Touring Africa by 4x4 ? Nic 12:14, 10 May 2005 (EDT)
The numbers in Pretoria are GPS coordinates. If a standard for embedding them is established, it will open the door for all kinds of new software applications. See the feature requests page.

As expected Cape Town is DOTM for September. Not knowing the city at all I made a best effort to write a blurb for the main page, but since you obviously know the city better I'd be grateful if you could update my text, as well as the photo if another one is more appropriate. If the photo changes please also update the Previous Destinations of the month page. Thanks! -- Wrh2 01:27, 1 Sep 2005 (EDT)
Hi Felix - nice work, I just stumbled on WikiTravel and was proud to see Cape Town featured as Destination of the month. I added a better picture! My first WikiTravel contribution and I fear I might have stepped on some toes in the process, let me know. I updated the Previous Destinations page with the new pic.

You just need to register and they you have access to their full library of some amazing photography. Well worth investigating!
Hey Felix, a problem: Your (definitely appealing) photo of the fish seller, Image:RSA Kalk Bay.jpg, needs a model release, or it's going to have to be deleted owing to our policy concerning photos with recognizable people. Can you get that? Please respond quickly or I'm going to have to remove it. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 18:27, 28 May 2006 (EDT)
Hi. First off, thanks for the effort you have put in towards Wikitravel! I was happy to see that even Simon's Town was here! However, as a resident of Simon's Town, I can tell you that "Simon's Town" is the correct spelling for our little sea-side village, rather than "Simonstown"! I see that the page Simon's Town redirects to Simonstown, but shouldn't that be reversed? I corrected some of the references to "Simonstown", but I didn't want to go too far before discussing it with you first. Keep up the good work!!! 188.8.131.52 22:49, 7 July 2006 (EDT)
Hey there. Don't know why I made this obvious mistake... Anyway, have corrected it and searched through all relevante articles to change Simonstown into Simons's Town, but I am not 110% sre if I got all of them... Thanks for the advice. Felix, 08 July 2006, 12:18 (UTC)
