Hi, we're going to South Africa in November/December for a few weeks and our inbound and outbound flights are to/from Cape Town. We're planning to travel with BazBus along the coast, taking our time to discover the towns on the way, then we want to do the Kruger safari trip that'll end us up in Johannesburg. Obviously, we'll need to get back to Cape Town to catch our flight and I can't decide whether to simply fly back with Kulula or take the Shosholoza Meyl for some additional sightseeing from…

Booking ahead

Hi, my girlfriend and I will go to South Africa next week, travel by rental car from Johannesburg to KwaZulu Natal and then south.
My question: How important would you consider booking sleeping options ahead in October?
I prefer to book ahead only a few days to allow flexibility. However I heard places fill up quickly this time of year already.
Any advice? Thank you.

Hi there,

on my short trip from Durban to Capetown I'd like to stop for 2 days in one of those two places at the Wild Coast but I'm having difficulties in deciding which one. At first I thought I'd stop in Coffee Bay but now I read that its sort of scruffy and I thought Chintsa could be a good alternative.

I just want to relax after hiking in the Drakensberg, go for a swim (it that possible in either of those places??) and do a few short hikes.

Would be great if you could give me your opinion…

Hi, I'd like to spend 3-4 nights in Madikwe, it's better to sleep all the nights in the same lodge or it's better to spend 2-1 or 2-2 in differents lodges in different areas of the reserve (e.g. 2 nights in Eastern part and 2 in Western part)?
Is the reserve so small that is possible to go around almost everywhere staying in an only lodge? Or not?
Do you have some suggestions in which area is better to stay? Some recommendation about lodges (not the most expensive ones)?
Thanks in advance

Hello
Thanks for previous reply. Could I also ask if I get a Myciti bus to the Civic Centre from the airport would I find a bus on to A Sunflower Stop Backpackers, Green point easily or am I better going for the 200Zar shuttle offer from the hostel? Basically is the Civic Centre chaotic and unsafe?!
Thank you

Hi!
Could anyone recommend the most suitable route for me to hike Table Mountain? I am reasonably fit but do not like footpaths with a sheer drop on one side! I was thinking maybe the 12 Apostles route or Skeleton Gorge? I am interested in nature and scenery, rather than just getting to the top quickly. I would be booking with a tour.
Many thanks!

Hello, we are planning a 2 week stay in South Africa in April 2017. We will travel with 2 teenage children (11 and 12) and budget is limited. How to make the most out of it? Plan 2 weeks around either Capetown or Johannesburg, or can these be combined? We cannot afford the very exclusive safaris' but perhaps the best ones are a bit off the beaten track and still affordable? Any advice welcome!

Hi,
I need some help arranging a trip.
After staying in Cape Town for three nights and four days (love to hear recommendations about what we absolutely have to check out), we would like to travel Garden Route to Addo National Park and then return to CT for one/two night/s.

Where and for how long should we stop?

As of now we are thinking:

Starting our drive and passing Hermanus and Mossel Bay to arrive in Knysna - is this possible one day with also trying to see everything on the road? I think…

Drakensberg help

Hi

I am planning to visit Drakensberg and do one or two small hikes. Can anyone please give me suggestions on which hikes are the best to do and if possible suggest any hikes with bushman paintings. Bear in mind I will be travelling by car from St lucia direction so possibly any hikes in southern or middle drakensberg.

Also please recommend any reasonable accommodation nearby.

Thank you
