At the end of next September, I leave for three weeks holiday to "South Africa".
I'll travel by plane to JNB and from there I would like to make a safari for a few days in the "kruger park".
Is there somebody who can give me information about some safari to made in the Kruger Park ?
I work for "SN Brussels Airlines", and I would like to know if as "Airliner Staff " there are specials connections and specials prices ??? ( Do you know some local Tour Operators ) ?
After I'll take the plane to Port Elisabeth, rent a car, and go from Port Elisabeth to Cape Town.
If you know some good places to stay, please, let me know it.
So dear Friends, thank you very much in advance for your answers and share
your experiences in South Africa .
Renting a car in Port Elizabeth and driving towards Cape Town is spot on. You will experience some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world! When reaching the Tsitsikamma Toll Road you have two choices, either proceed with the toll road and take a bungee from the Bloukrans Bridge (216m/708ft) or drive via the beautiful Bloukrans and Groot River mountain passes.
Whichever way you go, don't miss quiet and gorgeous Natures Valley, it's a must see and a very nice place to kick of your shoes for a few days. Personally we find it a haven and will spend weeks here if we can.
Driving along the rest of the coast to CPT will be a real treat, just remember to spare time for sidetrips to places of the beaten track. As for Cape Town itself, it will keep you busy for quite a while....
With regards to safety: Just be sensible and use the common sense that you would use in other major world cities. Don't stray into obvious unsafe areas and don't trust anyone you don't know from at least somewhere reputable.
