Cederberg & West Coast or Garden Route, SA: Which is better in SPRING??

Jump to last reply

Please jump in and cast your vote! ((F)) Which is better in the spring: the West Coast & Cederberg OR the Garden Route, South Africa? (September 2013 trip)

Yes please feel free to be opinionated, and I love hearing opposing opinions. 8-) It gives me a better feel for each area.

My husband is a biologist and I am a poet. We both want to be inspired on our first trip to South Africa in spring (September 2013). Nothing is booked yet, but we plan to fly from San Diego or Los Angeles California to Cape Town. We will spend 17 nights, mainly in the Western Cape of South Africa.

We don't want to go too fast and cram in a lot of places. We want to avoid creating an "African blur". Looks like there is plenty to do and see using Cape Town area as a base for a week.

Then after Cape Town area, we will need to focus more on the west coast & Cederberg area...OR the Garden Route. Probably we won't have enough time to do justice to both at a leisurely pace. Addo Elephant Park looks great too, but I think it's too far for this particular trip.

It's my first trip to the continent of Africa, and my husband wants me to get hooked so he can get me to return! >:D< I'm excited although a bit nervous.

So which do YOU think is best in the spring: West coast & Cederberg, or Garden Route? And please explain why?

THANKS!
