Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, Feb 2017

On this trip, I visited South Africa between 16-Feb-2017 and 6-Mar-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Our trip was very enjoyable, the weather was superb. February is cleary a good time to go. It's worth looking at the lodge's seasonal pricing, as we found our most expensive lodge (Kwandwe Great Fish River) had reduced prices from 1 March.

We found when we arrived that it wasn't possible to book a winery lunch with only a few days notice - most were booked a month or so in advance.

Our peronal highlights were Game watching at Kwandwe and the Addo Elephant park, together with the coastal scenery at places like the Cape of Good Hope, Robberg Peninsula, Nature's Valley and Storm River Mouth.
