Hi Jeremy

When are you planning on doing the trip? I take it that you will be hiring a car to drive to Jo'burg? 14 days is plenty of time. If you do the garden route to Jo'burg you should probably allow for about 3 days drive because you will be stopping off and sightseeing along the way. You can then spend a few nights in a game lodge (Mpumalanga is the best place for lodges) and then drive back to Cape Town - should take about 14 hours straight back. If you need any assistance with car hire rates etc or a good game lodge just let me know!
