We are young parents with a 6-month daughter, travelling to the East Coast, for two weeks in early May. We’ll be flying to Durban. It’s our first time to S. Africa although we are currently based in Gabon…
First of all, we cannot decide between N and S coast. Perhaps it’s worth splitting it 50/50? What’s more important we’re looking for a spot with an easy access to a swimming-allowed, sandy beach AND a green (forest, park, seaside dunes) area for long walks with a stroller – this is quite important!
We’ll be renting a car for shopping and one-day excursions (waterfalls, gorges) into the country so it would be good for the place to be well located in this respect. I don’t know if any game reserves are feasible with a toddler…
In terms of accommodation we’re looking at a charming approx. 4 (5)-star standard: guesthouse, lodge or similar.
We would be grateful if you could think of a town or even a particular lodging that would meet our expectations. We can’t wait to visit this beautiful place!
