My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon to SA in very late October to mid November this year (2 weeks). We are ideally looking for small B&B/Gueshouse acccommodation under R800 per room (preferably more like R600).
We are thinking of an itinerary along these lines:
4 nights Cape town
Hire a car....
2 nights wine region (stellenbosch?)
1 night ?oudtshorn
2 nights around Kysna
2 nights Addo
2 nights east london area
We will then be getting a train to Johannesberg from East London for our final night there before flying home to the UK.
What do you think of this itinery? We had initially wanted to go up to kwazulu-natal because we love snorkeling but I don't think we realistically will have enough time. Does anyone know if there are any good snorkeling places on this route? Will the water be very cold in very early november?
Also, please can anyone recommend any accommodation options on route. In particular in Cape town...looking at trip advisor I thought Camps Bay might be a good place to be but we can't afford accommodation there so we'll probably look out further afield...are places like Hout Bay, Simon's Town and Bloubergrant too far out to easily get into the city? Do they have plenty of restaurants etc if we stayed there? We'd like quite accommodation near the sea, not really in the middle of the city but so that we can get into the city ok....don't ask for much do we?!!
Thank you for your help!
