We have just decided that this will be our next holiday. We have travelled independently in south east Asia extensively, and have now decided to change direction.
I am led to understand that travelling from place to place is difficult in SA..As I would be the only driver, my husband does not have a license, I am a bit concerned about driving. We have looked at overland trips but as we are 62, but very youn and travelled,usually by local bus/train etc,., these seem to read like boozy youngsters, wanting culture and party time and lots of adventure activities. I am sure that is wonderful for them but not for us.We want to see SA and discover what it is all about. I have bought a LP and am starting to read and plan. What would be your advice? Are there companies that we could go with that are more for budget travellers perhaps slightly more expensive than norm that cater for culture buffs., We don,t mind camping and definately do not want luxury types where you see a lot but at a whistle stop pace and are totally guarded away from local life.,. Do we go independently, or would it be so difficult that we missed out on a lot of sight? we have around 4 weeks to travel... W would be grateful for any advice that sets me on my journey. thank yoChristine
