We have flights booked to come on a trip to South Africa in November (arriving on 23rd November for 13 nights).
We have a daughter who will be 20 months old by this point, so obviously this is quite a large factor in what we can do!
I was thinking of firstly going to Hermanus as hoping that there may still be some Whales around. Thoughts?
In terms of places to stay, any recommendations in terms of really good guest houses?
What about Ocean Eleven, or the Marine Hotel, or the Sheraton Western Cape?
Then want to do a Safari - was thinking Kariega as this appears to be more kiddy friendly and they will do a drive and boat trip that she can come on before dropping her back prior to heading to see big 5.
Given the distances, thinking that flying there and back may be sensible? Thoughts? How long it is likely to take to drive from Cape Town to Kariega?
Or, alternative would be to fly up to Jo'burg to go to Pilanesberg which is also a sensible drive.... anybody got any views as to which may be the better option?
Then want to spend some time in Cape Town... Camps Bay I guess. Any suggestions for really good guest houses that are close to the sea front and restaurants?
Was also thinking of maybe a few nights at the Arabella Sheraton?
Finally, was wondering if worth going to Franshoek with a small child... guessing this may not be ideal place to take them.
Any thoughts, suggestions and help greatfully appreciated. Especially in terms of Safari with small child.
