My 15 year old daughter and I are travelling to SA next Sunday (12th August), we are staying with a friend in Jo'burg for a few days then spending 5 days in Kruger. However before I come back to my hectic work life i would like a week chilling out on the beach, but also with the option to take the odd day trip to places of interest - either parks or the zulu lands.
We have been recommended to go near Durban as it will be warm. however as two females travelling alone, we need somewhere safe. I don't like the sound of Durban and would like somewhere smaller, more peaceful and more authentic.
Can anyone recommend anywhere? My Lonely Planet guide has been less than helpful.
