Itinerary for month in South Africa (August)

Jump to last reply

Have enjoyed Fodor's books but new to this website/forum. I am planning to spend a month in South Africa (dates flexible but somewhere between mid-July and mid-September, so think "August"). It's just my husband and myself. We are wanting to get out of the heat in Florida where we reside. We will have to work some over the internet (maybe 20 hours a week). I was thinking we would rent a small home or villa somewhere not too far from Cape Town and spend most of the time there - some place with a view! Then we could be some half day and some full day excursions from there. During the time I would like to take 3-4 days and go to a safari. We have a pretty healthy budget for the trip but the planning is more overwhelming than I thought! Flights are more plentiful into J'Burg, but should I stick to flying in to Cape Town to avoid some of the hassles it looks like exist in J'Burg airport? Or should I fly into J'Burg so we are closer to Kruger and then do the safari at the beginning of the trip? Then is it worth the price to take one of the luxury trains to Cape Town? or should we fly? If we took the train would we see the wildflowers or should we make that a seperate excursion? Goals: relax, enjoy the "winter" weather, scenery/animals, romantic (second honeymoon type of trip), wildflowers, wineries, etc. So much to consider! Would like to start with finding a vacation, self catering rental and then work on the flight arrangements. Any and all advise is so very appreciated!
