Questions about George

Hi all,

My husband and I are staying in S.Africa for 14 days in January and plan to stay 6 nights nearer to Capetown (Steenberg most likely) and then fly to George to stay at Fancourt Resort.

A few questions: Is the George airport close to the Fancourt? Google maps says 11km, but I do not see the golf courses on the map, so I am a bit suspicious if I have the right Fancourt. This is important as we will play a final round of golf in the morning before catching the flight back to Capetown in the evening.

Also, is there a possibility to do a safari somewhere near George when we are staying at Fancourt?

Thanks so much!

Fancourt is actually 7 Km from George airport.

GPS coordinates are:

S33° 57' 4.4" E 22° 24' 23.22"

Ideas for nature reserves are here:

Gavin, we arent planning to rent a car in George as we fly there from CPT and mainly play golf at Fancourt during our stay. I have looked into both reserves, and one is about 30 mins and the other 50 from the resort. Any ideas how we might get there? Are there tour companies that would also arrange transport to and from the hotel, or is it better to ask the hotel to arrange this?

Thanks so much.

I would suggest that you forward a request to both the hotel and the game reserve of your choice and see which comes back first and with the best quote.
