My fiancé and I will be honeymooning in South Africa during September/October this year.
We have the beginning and end of our trip booked however we are not sure if we should stay in Cape Town in the middle or drive the garden route. Our itinerary is as follows:
27th Camps Bay Atlantic view guest house
28th Camps Bay Atlantic view guest house
29th Camps Bay Atlantic view guest house
30th Camps Bay Atlantic view guest house
1st Cape Town Manna bay
2nd Cape Town Manna bay
3rd Franschoek Fleur du soleil
4th Franschoek Fleur du soleil
5th Franschoek Mont Rochelle
12th Lion Sands Tinga Lodge
13th Lion Sands Tinga Lodge
14th Lion Sands Tinga Lodge
15th Cape Town Tintswalo
We are really into food, fine dining as well as street food and love going to a nice cocktail bar, which is why we are tempted to stay in Cape Town. But I am worried we will be in Cape Town too long and also I'm not sure how warm it will be this time of year!
If we drive the Garden Route we where thinking of 2 nights in Hermanus to see the whales, 2 nights in Plettenburg to go bungee jumping and do some canyoning, 1 night in Jefferies Bay to watch the surf and then 1 night in Port Elizabeth as we would be flying out early the next morning.
Can anybody give any indicators on what they would recommend?
We are mid and late twenties and have a mid level budget.
I hope this is enough information for people to help :)
