HELP A DANE !What to do with 6 weeks in South Africa?

Jump to last reply

I am trying to plan 6 weeks in South Africa. We will be landing in Johannesburg late februar 2014(the 6 weeks in South Africa is the final part of a 4 months trip :) ). We are 2 adults and 2 kids aged 5 and 9. We been to Africa before, but never South Africa(exept 7 days in 2007).

I think we will hire a car with camping equipment,we love to camp, you are just so much better connected to nature. I know we don´t need a 4x4 to drive around South Africa, but it seems that if you wanna hire camping equipment, you have too get a 4x4. Anyone know a good reliable car hire company?

I am having a hard time trying to figure our route out. Our main interests are wildlife wieving and just feel connected to nature. At the same time it would be nice to do some activities the kids would like.

Some of the must things in South Africa we know we will want to do is:

spend 8-10 days in Kruger
spend 7 days around Cape Town (incl. Shark Cage Diving, that is the top priority for my wife)
Maybe KwaZulu Natal, incl. St.Lucia, Hluhluwe-Imfolozi

But other than that I am pretty lost. Maybe we have enough time to cross into neighbouring countries like Zimbabwe or Botswana.

Any suggestions will be highly appriciated ? :)
