Good News! I've spoken to Alison from South Africa and she is waiting for me, she invited me to stay over with her and for as long as I want.
Unfortunately, I've got enough work to fill up my agenda till June, so it is unreasonnable to be gone for too long. If Ron agrees I will take 3 days off, so I can spend 3 days, 3 nights with Alison in Johannesburg and 2 days in Durban for the wedding.
Needless to say, Nadine was delighted. For my part, I was extatic at Ali's friendship. Now, I cannot wait to get there. Alex is bringing home a guide book, I'll have three days to see as much of that gorgeous country as I possibly can!
PS: Thank you all for sharing your opinions, yeah I'm aware of the crime rate, I'll look after myself and make sure I don't make myself a target. I'll also ask Nadine to hook me up with her bride's maids while in Durban.
