Been to SouthAfrica 5 times now since 2004 and on every trip it is more expensive than the last time. This applies mainly to the cost of hotels & guest houses. You can stay in a 4 star hotel in say tenerife on half board cheaper than you can in a 3 star guest house in say Knysna.
Cape Town is even more expensive. We did a 4 week tour ending up in Cape Town so we knew the prices of most things by the time we got there. You can almost double the cost of most things in Cape Town and unfortunately it is spreading along the Garden route.
