I posted a topic a few months ago when I was thinking about visiting South Africa. We have now booked our flights and I am trying to put together an itinerary. What do people think of this? We arrive JNB on 1st July and leave CPT 22 July. Here goes:
2 nights JNB staying in Melrose Arch
3 nights safari Kruger.....exact destination/camp yet to be decided. Possibly Lion Sands Sabi Sands or Leopard Hills
2 nights Rorkes drift (Fugitives Drift Guest House). Can you fly Kruger to Durban and then drive to Rourkes drift all in same day?#
2 nights Drakensberg Mountains (Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse)
6 nights Cape town (African Villa)
3 or 4 nights Franshoek (Maison Chablis)
Last 2 nights back in Cape Town.
We have a a day spare somewhere...thought we may need to break up the travel from Kruger to Rorkes drift.
What do people think? Are we missing anything essential on our trip? We would be keen to do some walking, biking and/or riding in these areas.
Thanks in anticipation,
