I am going to South Africa with my family in August 2010 (two adults and two small children (one year old and four years old).
We have now finally decided our itinerary:
- Whale Coast (Grootbos Garden Lodge) (five nights)
- Franschhoek (Le Quartier Francais) (four nights)
- Kalahari (Tswalu) (four nights)
- Cape Town (Mount Nelson) (four nights)
One of the goals have been to minimize transportation time which we believe we have achieved (among other things by flying into Tswalu from directly from Cape Town).
While we are generally pretty comfortable with this game plan and have already sought separate advise with respect to accommodation in Cape Town, our only question mark is whether four nights are too long time to spend in the Wine Lands. However, as we see this as a break from some of the more remote locations, we believe that it could work.
Please let me know any comments to the itinerary (including possible improvements).
