Hello friends! South Africa has always been my dream destination and I always wanted to visit there at least once in my life but was hindered by financial problems. Now, by god's grace I have saved up enough to plan a trip there. I need guidance form the experienced mylot members as to what will be the budget like, must see places, etc, for a two weeks' tour. Please help

Last month I went to South Africa for two weeks with my toddler son. I loved it in Cape Town and so we spent almost a week there. The sights were amazing like the penguins at Boulder's Beach, The Kirstenbosch Gardens, amazing Camp Bay and Table Mountain. It was fascinating when we went on a walking tour of a township. We took a bus to Mossel Bay and went on on a seal watching boat trip. Then we took a bus to Plattenburg Bay. It was so pretty there and I loved it. We took a taxi out to a game reserve for a two hour safari. We saw lions, giraffes, rhinos, hippos, zebras and many other animals. I saw more animals there than on a 5 day safari in Kenya, in the Masai Mara. I found the people incredibly friendly. It is a large country and I hope to go back sometime to see some more. I would love to go to Coffee Bay on the way up to Durban. My flight cost a fair amount to fly from London to Cape Town however I found costs reasonably once I got there. I have traveled a great deal and Cape Town has shot up to number two in my favorite lists. Wow! I hope that you will go and have an excellent time in sunny South Africa.
