Help with choosing which areas to visit

Jump to last reply

We have travelled SA on numerous occasions over the years as my sister lives there, and have visited, the Cape, done the Garden Route, and taken safari lodges both private, KNP and Madekwe . We have also done all the beautiful areas near JoBurg, the Drakensberg's, Pilgrims Rest etc.This year we would like to visit a different area and are thinking about KwaZulu Natal area, We have a week free in our plans to do this and would fly to either Durban or Richards Bay before taking up a hire car to travel back to Vereeniging via a stop off at Rorkes Drift. We have been reading all the wonderful reports on here and now we have so much to think about!
We definitely want to stay in Rorkes Drift and see the battlefields so how long do you think we should stay, is 2 night too little? We are also undecided about Durban or St Lucia and how long we would need here? We shall be ending our stay in SA at Lower Sabie for 5 nights to unwind as we absolutely love it there, but we have been reading everyone's views on Hluhluwe and that looks amazing also. So please if anyone can help with these questions we would be forever grateful.
1. How many nights in Rorkes Drift
2. Do we stay in Durban or St Lucia and how long would we need in these areas
3. As we are visiting KNP should we also stay at Hluhluwe
