This morning J and I finally bought the tickets we’ve been planning on buying for South Africa this summer. We also lined up most of our accommodation.
On the docket is:
- Two weeks in Rocklands in the Cederberg Mountains for bouldering (the impetus for this trip being two rock-climbing friends who are going there as well)
- Three nights on the Garden Route, seeing beaches and whales and elephants
- Four nights in Capetown, visiting Table Mountain and Robben Island and the penguin colony
We will not, unfortunately, be making the trip east to Johannesburg or to Kruger National Park.
We’ll be flying Emirates through Dubai because the only “direct” flights from Europe (out of London or Amsterdam) were prohibitively expensive.
Anyone been there and have any advice?
