Thanks for all the help we have had so far from you experts - can't wqit to go to CT in 2 weeks time. All our hotels are booked with the exception of the Garden Route. We are undecided whether to book the 3 days in advance or arrive and choose when we get there. We have been thinking of 2 nights Knysna and one night Outshorn. Also are there any hotels in that area you think are good. All the others we have booked into are expensive eg 2000 rand + per night so thought we might economise at this point. But I could be persuaded for the right hotel as it is a special birthday.
