We love South Africa. We visited the historical town of Carltonville which is deep mining and dates back many years. There are lovely B&B to stay in and loads of places to visit in and around as well. Thanks First Car for a very lovely car that also Allowed us to visit these places. Martin and Cindy (04.22)
