My girlfriend and I are driving from Cape Town to Kruger and then back this July. I was planning on taking the N1 to N4 on the way up, and then returning along the coast on the N2.
I am stoked for this trip, but I need loads of advice!
First, I was planning to drive 2 days from Cape Town to Nelspruit, spend the night in Nelspruit, and then enter Kruger the following morning. Does anyone know any nice (affordable) places to stay midway between Cape Town and Nelspruit, and then again in Nelspruit?
Secondly, we are budgeting 7 days to drive back from Kruger to Cape Town. We want to see some other national parks, and we don't want to do any long-haul driving. Does anyone have any advice for places to stay or things I just shouldn't miss along the N2?
Finally (and most importantly) is this safe?
Thanks for any advice you can provide!
