Hi! My husband and I are spending our 5th year anniversary in South Africa for 3 weeks. We are both 29 and SO EXCITED. I needed help with out itinerary, so far this is what it looks like but it is very flexible:
Our itinerary is to arrive in Johanesberg, stay there for 3 days, then drive up to Kruger Park, stay at a private game reserve for safari adventures (probably Kapama Buffalo Lodge) for 3 nights, then drive down to Durban, stay there for 2 nights. Then we will take a flight down to Cape Town and rent a car there. We will then drive to the Western Cape (Garden Route) and stay somewhere in the Garden Route for 2 nights and then we are open to suggestions after that.
Basically: we want ti now if we are missing some important places /areas to see? Is it worth it to drive to other areas besides the Western Cape? Where in capetown, johanesberg, and durban would you recommend staying? We want something nice but around $80/night or less!
Any recs and help with this itinerary would be amazing! THANK YOU!
