Usually I take to Trip Advisor when I've read through hundreds of posts and craft a preliminary itinerary. Only at this point to I offer myself up to the forums for advice. However, I have to say I have read hundreds of SA forum discussions, and I am still confused!
We are planning a trip in February (while that may not be the best time, it is what it is...would March be any better)?
We will have 15 days or so.
-The only thing I really know is that we will fly into Cape Town. Spend 5 days in and around Cape Town. I feel like I can figure our the best things to do here... there's so much on the boards!
- Then I'm thinking we self-drive to Port Elizabeth in maybe 5 days. I have no idea where to stop along the way.
- Final stop: Kruger. Flying from Port Elizabeth. I think it's the Kruger piece that is making me so confused. I like the idea of doing two different experiences, maybe each 2 nights, or 2/3. However, where to enter, what to do, is all up for debate. We will not stay in the super luxury camps, but could do some type of private experience. We will fly home from J'Burg.
Any and all recommendations would be greatly appreciated. All of my travels have been nothing but enhanced by the advice I get on these boards. I've dreamed of going to SA for many years and I know it will be great, but I just want a bit more clarity!
Thank you in advance.
