Bafana Bafana's Group A opponents Angola say they will set up base in Johannesburg for the group stages of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Palancas Negras play their opening match against Morocco at Soccer City, but then face South Africa in Durban and Cape Verde in Port Elizabeth.
The Angolans have decided they will camp and train in Johannesburg though, and travel to their matches on the coast, hopeful that staying at altitude will be beneficial for them.
This was confirmed by the Angolan Football Federation vice-president Joao Lusevikueno.
Meanwhile, DR Congo have emerged as possible opponents for Bafana Bafana in their friendly international pencilled in for Durban on December 22.
The Congolese will camp in Port Elizabeth from December 8-18 and could stay on to provide Gordon Igesund's side with some quality opposition ahead of the tournament.
Other warm-up games for Bafana will see them take on Norway in Cape Town on January 8 and Algeria in Gauteng on January 12.
