I recall the stories of the Kalahari UFO crash from the early 1990s.
There's an interesting chapter on older UFO stories in the Afrikaans book Verlore Skakels: Onverklaarde Geheime van Suider-Afrika by Rob Marsh
(Struik: 1994, pages 102-109).
Most of the sightings seem to be in rural areas, or game parks, although it's hard to pinpoint a specific area with recurring activity.
Added to this, most of South Africa was actually sparsely populated.
One of the more interesting stories is that of Elizabeth Klarer, who claims to have met an alien lover close to the Drakensberg in 1954.
Around Cape Town and Table Mountain there are many stories.
I saw a diamond-shaped UFO from Derde-Steen, near Blouberg.
It only lasted a second, and although it was quite a distance away, high up in the sky, it seemed to know we saw it.
Then it flashed a whole lot of colors and was gone.
The dude next to me said, "What the hell was that?"
Strangely we never spoke about it again, although I mentioned it before on ATS.
Another time I was visiting a lady in Clifton, who had a house where one can see the ocean and sky through big windows.
We came to the topic of UFOs, and she said sometime in the 1970's her whole family was sitting in the lounge and they saw three metal discs fly over
the ocean towards the sky, right past their window!
For UFOs and aliens in SA, I'd say have a look at Credo Mutwa's narratives on Youtube.
He even talks about finding aliens in the bush and eating them.
Nice thread and happy hunting!
