Me and my girlfriend are planning 3 weeks in South Africa. We want to rent a car and leaving from Cape Town reaching the eastern coast. Which would be the best route including Safaris, Parks, Reserves and Beaches!?

  • Why not visit the oldest proclaimed game reserve in Africa the Hluhluwe Game Reserve in Natal, also the first world heritage site in South Africa is also 54 km away from Hluhluwe the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, www.hluhluwegamereserve.com and www.stluciasouthafrica.com Quentin Muir over 7 years ago

    Depending how far up the east coast you want to go, there's Addo elephant park, Kruger national park at the top, many beautiful beaches along the way, cape point by Cape Town is also nice. over 7 years ago

    If you are looking at visiting the Krugar Park nearby is an amazing lodge which offers accommodation catered or uncatered, they also offer to pick you up from a gate at The Krugar Park. Look into staying at Katrinasrust Farm Machadodorp, or their adjoining farm in a beautiful romantic cottage Cullinan Falls. I would highly recommend, the best holiday of my life! Phone the friendly owner and he will negotiate prices etc (all i found very reasonable) over 7 years ago

    I would recommend the storms river suspension bridge in tsitsikamma national park. It's absolutely beautiful and there is a great little beach there as well. It's right off the garden route. over 7 years ago

    If you have the money, you have to stay at the Botlierskop "tent". Google Botlierskop and ask for the tent to the right across the creek. over 7 years ago

    A stay in Hermanus and you may be able to see the whales as they come into the bay to breed.
    Wilderness Beach lovely and there's a nice walk along the disused railway to the The Secret Cave and onto the next bay.
    If staying in hostels, get a copy of the Coast to Coast book which lists a good variety with write up & price guide..
    Further along the coast, Coffee Bay, whilst beautiful is somewhat over-rated, Rural Umzumbe has a great hostel (Moon & Mantis) and nice beach.
    The drive is a long one so don't underestimate travelling time. It is stunning though. Have a great trip and feel free to see my blog (Buterfly-freed on here) for my experiences. over 7 years ago
