Help planning 13 days in SA in January

Jump to last reply

I have tickets for 14 days in South Africa, flying into Capetown and out of Johannesburg, next January. I've just ordered a guide book so I haven't done much research yet. I know I want to spend a bit of time around Capetown, taking in the usual tourist haunts. Driving to Port Elizabeth along the Garden Route is an option. Driving around parts of Kwazulu Natal would be fantastic. Finally, of course Kruger.

I want nice accommodations but affordable. Especially the Safari Lodges can get pretty expensive but we'll need air conditioning and mosquito netting in January I suspect! I also want to feel close to nature and if the animals come close to camp, all the better.

Does anyone have advice? Would a travel agency get me better pricing or should I continue on my own?

I'm all ears - or eyes in this case.
