South Africa itinerary - help with logistics please

Jump to last reply

Hello travelers! I am in the early stages of planning a 16 day trip to South Africa with a friend and I am looking for some help with my itinerary. We are two women in our 40's and are fairly well traveled. I mainly want to know if I have enough time to do all this and best way to plan the route.

I will be flying from Atlanta, GA to JNB. Here is my rough draft:
Fly to JNB (it's direct from ATL)
Fly to CPT - spend 5 days (see local sights, winelands, shark diving)
Drive Garden Route to Port Elizabeth - not sure how long to allow for this. Stop along way in Knysa and Hermanus.
Spend a couple days in Drakenberg area - what is the best way to get here? Perhaps fly from PE to Durban and then rent a car? How long will this take?
3 day safari in Kruger (Sabi Sands area, looking at Elephant Plains, Lion Sands, Ulusaba) - again, what is best way to get to this area from Drakenberg and how long?
Back to Jo'Berg - Spend 1 day sightseeing, Soweto
Fly home from JNB

Is it better to go the opposite way? Do safari first they go to Drakenberg, GR, CPT, etc.?

Thank you all!
