My family - 2 Adults and 2 children aged 11 and 14 - want to visit South Africa in December. Ideally, we would like to take in the following sites:-
* Cape Town,
* Garden Route
* Game Park (around the Eastern Cape)
* Drakensberg Mountains
We need to come over the Christmas School holidays and want to spend 3 weeks there. I knew it would be more expensive going in December but I have just been quoted over £13000.00 for the 4 of us! And of course we will need spending money in addition as not everywhere includes meals!
I was hoping to bring the cost of the holiday in at £10000.00 including spending money! Am I being totally unrealistic??
Would it be cheaper for me to book direct rather than through a tour operator? Although I have had a quick look at some places direct and not sure it would be any cheaper!
I would appreciate any hints and advice.
