Planning 14 night itinerary. My wife has a morbid fear of spiders. Are they an issue in October ?Cape Town to port Elizabeth, pumba and return to Cape Town. Hopefully not as almost everything is booked.

I know someone in cape town who collects them as a hobby so you could call him to collect. Im talking about the unusual ones and for those of you who think I am joking I am not.there are lots of little ones around which you could stamp on.
