My itinerary of SA on March

I intend to go to South Africa on March to April. However, I don't have private vehicle. I don't know if it's possible to finish my plan. Could anyone give me any comments on my itinerary as follows:

1. Spend 4 nights in Cape Town, including visiting Robben Island, Cape Peninsula, Stellbosch, Table Mountain, Bo Kaap, V&A Waterfront etc. Is it enough for 4 nights staying in Cape Town?

2. Then, I will take bus to Mossel Bay. Stay there to change bus to Oudstoorn and live there overnight. Then, spend a day in Oudstoorn to visit ostrich farms and Cango Cave. Stay one more night. Then, I will be back to Geogre and to Knysna for a day trip. Then I will be back to Geogre.

3. I will take plane to Johannesberg from Geogre. But I think I will go to Nelspruit directly by bus. I will stay a night there and wait for going Kruger. I think I will spend 3 days in Kruger and Blyde Canyon. ( Don't know if it becomes too harsh)

4. Then, I will be back to Johannesberg and stay also 2-3 nights. I intend to visit Gold Reef, Johannesberg, Apartheid, Lesedi, Soweto etc.

5. For the final destination, I hope that I can go to Lesotho. I plan to take flight to Maseru then go to Malealea to stay 3 nights there. Then I will take plane to Johannesberg again and then leave for Hong Kong.

I would like to ask if this plan is practical? Anything I need to consider. Thanks for all comments!

Hi

My only comment is about your transport - you are spending a lot of money travelling by bus and taxi's so why don't you hire a car for travelling in the CT/George area and then hire one again when you get to Johannesburg. This will give you far more fredom to stop at places that you would only see through a bus window and would be great to stop at.

You are doing a lot but your itinery should be ok.

Actually, I don't know driving. Also, I will go alone. Is it economical for me to hire a car or any better ideas?

Thx again!
