South Africa/Botswana Trip Report

Jump to last reply

We've just returned from a wonderful trip to South Africa and Botswana. It was our first safari and we were anticipating for so long, that it is hard to believe we are now back at home. Everything meant our expectations and more, and it was a fantastic experience.

We started with 3 nights in the Capetown area, actually staying at Stellenbosch, which was quite centrally located. We stayed at the Lanzerac on a winter rate, and were very pleased with the room, etc. We also had a good dinner there our first night.
(I had fillet of ostrich, which I thought was excellent). We started out with rainy weather, but went ahead with our plan to drive to Franschhoek visiting several wineries along the way, and shopping in Franschhoek. The weather finally started to clear so we drove up to La Couronne for a late lunch (just barely outside Franschhoek), what a wonderful view while enjoying lunch!

We saved our last full day for the drive around the cape. It was an absolutely beautiful day and the scenery was breathtaking all the way around. We then arrived at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, where we had a very late lunch, (big plates of prawns at Willouwbys (spelling?) and explored the waterfront area.
We were getting tired by this time, and decided to leave just before dark to start back to Stellenbosch. I was now very excited to pack up and move on to the next portion of our trip, as our safari starts the next day.
