Top Tips for South Africa:

1. The Garden Route has great things to do but does not have any Vineyards, they are all in Stellenbosch.
2. Spend at least 3 FULL days in Cape Town and 2 FULL days in Kruger National Park.
3. For more a more upmarket Hotel, stay outside the Park and commute in Daily by yourself.
4. Don't do a drive, you will see lots of Animals just driving around in your 4x4 yourself.
5. Be more aware of your personal security than you would normally, but don't let it spoil your time.
6. Take half your normal spends, South Africa is Very Cheap.
