We had a magical 1st holiday this year in the Cape area and had planned to revisit in 2014 to try and cover some of the bits we missed the 1st time.
So we start planning and by mistake discovered that St Lucia looked interesting and then discovered there was a great opportunity to experience some top class safari whilst we were there.
So now we are thinking flight into Johannesburg (from LHR), changing planes to Durban, driving, having a weeks holiday then driving and spending another several hours flying and driving and then having another weeks holiday. The temptation is to forget the slog south, stay put and convert our travelling day into an extra days holiday.
For the last week of our holiday we would be looking for a bit of a treat - somewhere nice to stay, maybe some good food and either a bit of beach or a bit of scenic sightseeing and definitely laid back. The best accommodation seems to be in and around Umhlanga, on the other hand the resort looks like a cross between Miami Beach and Benidorm - nothing wrong with that, but not what we are looking for.
Is there somewhere I am missing - somewhere I should be looking at or should I go ahead and plan a retreat back South?
Our 2nd visit is planned for October, we are happy to drive, we have a reasonable budget and we are to old to go bungee jumping
