We are planning our first trip to S.A. for Feb 2008.
So far we have the following itinerary planned and would welcome any advise of things we must do/see. The trip will be for about 16 days.
Fly London to Joburg.
Spend 3-4 nights in Pretoria with friends. Whilst here we plan to visit Blyde River Canyon, Pilgrims Rest etc.
Fly to Port Elizabeth and hire car to drive along the Garden Route, stopping at where?
Would also like to spend a couple of days relaxing on a beach - suggestions please.
The final 5-7 days will be spent in Cape Town doing as much as possible before either flying home or bak to Joburg and then home.
What things should we include as must sees, accomodation along the Garden Route and good restuarants (meat for hubby, fish for me). We are not that bothered about doing a safari as we done this last year in Kenya.
Any advise would be welcome.
