QUESTION!!! (south africa)

Travel Forums Africa and The Middle East QUESTION!!! (south africa)

1. Posted by freshginge (Budding Member 3 posts) 12y Star this if you like it!

I have never done a backpacking trip before, I just want to know if there anyway I can have a ok trip in south africa with 10-14 days?

I don't think i'll be visiting all the good places, but at least some major places. Also, the trip will be backpacking, i am not going to get an expensive tour guy, and stay in 5 star hotels...

any advise? also, what is the best time to travel to south africa? thanks!

I've heard the Baz Bus being highly recommended as a good, cheap way to see South Africa, its specially for backpackers. Heres the site if you wanna have a look

Hi ..

if you can stretch your stay to 14 days.. do it you won't be disappointed. South Africa is a big place and it takes time to get around.. so decide what you want to see before you get here and spend time seeng it.. don't rush to much or you'll miss it all.

we got mountains.. beaches... night life... wild life..
got loads of backpackers to stay in so no worries on the 5 star hotels..

if you have an idea of what you want to see let me know and i try suggest a few places..
