Just starting to plan a trip to South Africa for myself and my husband.
We want to do Capetown, wine lands, safari (possibly Krugar) and if we have time Victoria falls.
We are into food & drink, animals and the history/sight seeing. Not so much into the water sports or sun bathing/beach.
We are planning to go this year anytime from June on wards for about 10 nights.
Can anyone help with an itinerary and best time to go?
Hello all! I’ll be in Cape Town for two weeks on a volunteer trip. The last weekend I’m there (April 2018) I’d like to fly to the airport near Kruger, and join a two or three day safari before flying back to Cape Town. As I’ll be on my own, my preference would be to join a few other people either in Cape Town, or at Kruger. My preference is also to join a scheduled tour operator and stay at their camps inside Kruger. I figure this is the safest option for me.
Does anyone know how I could go…
I an trying to organise a safari trip to South Africa, one of the participants is using a wheelchair.
I have read the official accessibility info and am now looking for a trust tour operator to arrange everything.
Does anyone hear has expirience with this?
any advises or recommendations are welcomed
Thanks a lot!
Peoplz – I’ve had a recent stay in Johannesburg and read many critical voices prior to my visit that Joburg was just “ugly and to dangerous” and not worth a visit. Others advised that they were living “since 5 years” and nothing ever happened to them.
I’d therefore like to share my experience as an ordinary visitor and also comment if a stay from an touristy perspective is recommended. I have also put together a short YouTube Video which I’d like to share at this stage: https://www.youtube.com/…
Cape Town and Johannesburg with day tour to Kruger Park - What possibilities are there ?
I have seen 16 hours trip from Johannesburg to Kruger, including a two hour safari there, but ... I'm single and for an open car on the safari it would set me back some 850 - 900 USD.
any better options ?
I am really keen to climb table mountain, but from reading online it seems best to do this with a guided tour, rather than alone. Can anyone recommend a good company?
We have reservations for a cottage at Nyathi Rest Camp inside Addo Elephant Preserve for late May with a side trip to Port Elizabeth. Info and advisories about water restrictions and the effects of the drought on the resident elephant population from this area would be much appreciated.
Are the restrictions in Port E as severe as those in Capetown? Are the elephants able to find sufficient water? Any advice for living with local water restrictions? Is Port E any better prepared than Capetown?…
I will be in Cape Town for work at the end of February and have 3 free days. As I have limited time, I am debating whether to do a Cape Peninsula tour or a day's safari. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which would be best, and also any tour companies that are good and don't cost the earth - I'm travelling alone and won't have a car...!
Thanks so much,
My sister and I are planning a trip to zulunyala game reserve this September. It's on the coast 6 hours east of Johannesburg. Never been there so any tips about shots, what else to see in the area, and especially reliable airlines to fly would be most helpful. Thanks for any tips. We would really appreciate any advice.
