This is going to be a rather long post but I would request and appreciate all the tips I can for the much dreamed South Africa trip. My husband and I have booked for beg April 2018 and our itinerary looks something like this-
30Th Mar- fly from singapore and arrive Joberg in the noon. Night stay in joberg
31st Mar- planning to rent a car and drive to Kruger. Q-drive is better or flying? We thought drive is cheaper plus the route is scenic and we can reach Kruger on time. I would need advice on which are the best rentals for self drive and can we leave the car at Kruger
I need major advice on where to stay in Kruger. I have looked up many lodges that are all inclusive but also exorbitant. I would prefer an all inclusive deal but not something which will cost my kidney. We are planning to spend 2 nights there. Pls advice on which all areas to look at- Kruger, Sabi Sands, Manyeleti?? names of resorts would be super helpful
2nd Apr- we plan to fly out of Hoedspruit to George. Our plan is spend next 2 days in Knysna.
Do give suggestions on what to do in Knysna, must gos etc.
on 4th we plan to drive to Hermanus and Stellenbosch. Which of the 2 should be our spot for spending the night. We would like to do a visit to the wineyards. Does that need to booked in advance? which one should be booked? Suggestions on places to stay in either of the places
5th Apr- we plan to arrive in Cape Town by noon and stay somewhere near V&A waterfront. We have 2.5 days in CT. I know its less but we are planning to pack in the Table Mountain, Robben Island exp. Do recommend beaches and other things to do. Also given that we have less days, should we do the tour to peninsula cape.
We are flying out on 8th Apr
Any suggestions, tips would be welcome. Thank you so much in advance
PS- I am a vegetarian. So any reco for a restaurant where we can catch a good veg meal at these locations will be heavenly 🙂
