Book your flight independently and then visit tripadvisor.com for some fab places to stay recommended by you the holiday maker!, we did, and intend to go back, what a wonderful country, and never a better time to go!

Good Luck!

Fly to Joburg and get an internal flight down to George, arrange a hire car from George Airport and choose from any of the great hotels along the Garden Route. Plenty to see and do in this part of South Africa. If you need anymore info then feel free to e-mail me at cyprusdavegurr@gmail.com.

I spent a long time working out there and I put it at No2 on my list of places that I would like to live. By the way I am now living in my No1 choice (the TRNC).

What sort of holiday in SA do you want?



I have visited and lived in SA for many years and know the country well.



We ALWAYS travel independently, book our own flights and stay in independent hotels.



I would personally fly into Cape Town, stay in the city for a few days, then Stellenbosch area(if you like wine), then drive the Garden Route all the way to Port Elizabeth and back to Cape Town.



There are some fantastic places to stay in and aroud George and all along the routs, although it does get a bit bland as you get to PE, but all worth the drive.



Avoid at all costs, staying in Jo'Burg. It's not safe. If you do stay there make it short.



Garden Route is Def the place to go. Fantastic Scenary.



Any help I can give, let me know.

I've been out to Sa many times and once flew in to CPT and the other times into JNB. If you want to do a Safari, best bet is to fly into JNB and then go up to Kruger. If you want to do the wine trail, then CPT is your best bet. From there you can do the 'Garden Route' etc. Buy Lonely Planets guide to SA. It is so helpful. You can get great B&Bs at fantastic prices out there if you're doing a driving holiday.

What kind of holiday are you planning to take and how much time will you have out there? This all decides what you can/can't fit in.

kriblisi..I am currently planning a holiday to S.A.for 2010,no not for the world cup,its actually a self drive from Capetown to Port Elizabeth and return. We are staying 3 nights in the CPT area.a couple of days in Hermanus.Then onto the Wine Route,where we hope to stop for a couple of days.From their we go down to either George or Knysna so I can have aride on their world famous steam train,dont ask me to spell it.Its bad enough trying to say it,then along the coast to Plettenburgh Bay and Port elizabeth.Might go up to Shamwari Game reserve if we have time.I am planning all this on the Internet and its really interesting what you can come up with.WellI have 12months to finalise it so there might be a few changes here and there cos her indoors is like the weather ,CHANGEABLE.!!!

Coachie,



Try the "Eight Bells" mountain inn( http://www.eightbells.co.za/home.html), it's fantastic, location etc. Its on the road from Mossel Bay to Oudtshoorn, where you can visit the Cango Caves. You could then continue to George to pick up the train to Knysna (Outeniqua Choo Tjoe).



Fantastic trip, I envy you.



We too are supposed to be doing the same type of trip in 2010 for my 50th year and taking some friends over that have never been.



Regards



Mc

We booked through Africa Travel via the internet, as we wanted to stay at 5 different places and couldn't be doing with going backwards and forwards with dates, if one place had availability and another didn't. They were exceptionally helpful and the documentation included comprehensive road directions from one booking to the next, which were invaluable.



We flew with Emirates to Jo'berg and then South African airways to Cape Town, but Turkish Airlines and Emirates both now fly direct.



Would go back like a shot, fantastic place, best holiday ever.



If you want to look at the reviews of where we stayed they are on my website http://www.travelwritersreviews.com
