12 day S. Africa Tour w/Gate 1 Travel - 2/27/2014

We, group of 6, took this tour with Gate1 that began in Cape Town and ended in Johannesburg. To start the accommodations were wonderful at every stop. Our Tour Guide, Roger was the best. He was knowledgeable and a good communicator. The entire group (24) got along very well. We were more than pleased with trip and are planning our next 2 trips using Gate 1.

Hello. After we flew to Durban and boarded our Bus we were never on the bus more than 1-2 hrs to the next destination. We usually stopped at points of interest, rest stops, picture taking and refreshments. We reached our destinations and spent 1 or 2 nights. The longest time on the bus was from Kruger to Johannesburg, which was the scenic route through the mountains with several stops. We always stopped less than 2 hrs and there were several points of interest stops, lunch, shopping, picture taking etc. You won't be ride weary, trust me.... If you do this trip, get Roget as your guide and the weather is right, you will thoroughly enjoy the experience. I'd recommend the Robben Island tour. Happy Travels.

Suggest you take along insect repellent and sun screen. It will begin to start getting cooler so light jackets and sweaters will be appropriate, Wear long pants on the 2 game (safari) tours. Otherwise, prepare for a great time and hope you get Roger as your tour guide. Oh, BTW do your money exchange before you go or do it at the mall in Cape Town at the American Express office. Our room accommodations were great and the weather was perfect. Hope you have a great time. One other thing, hope you're an early riser......
