i am planning to go to Ousdstroom just outside George for a wedding, and afterwards am thinking of getting a Coach / Bus along the Garden route to cape town. I could fly, but have been told the main reason people take the bus is because of the scenery alone the way. I am not sure I want to spend days stopping off along the way, and think I will do the coach drive in one go. I am just wondering what the scenery is actually like, and whether me just getting the coach along it is going to be worth it instead of flying. I realise there are attractions along the way, but I'm not sure I want to spend days stopping and going to lots of them.
I will stay in cape Town for a few days however, and would like some recommendations on thing s to do, reasonable places to stay, and any tips. I will probably do Robben Island and Table mountain, and was considering the soccer stadium if that is possible, but am open to suggestions of things I have not thought of. Any reviews . experiences of the cape town hostels? or are the B&Bs better? nice nifty restaurants? I am not on a Five star budget, but if the places are reasonable i will consider them, many thanks.
