looking for the best spots in SA
« on: December 20, 2010, 10:36:23 pm »
Hello members,

at this time we are nipping a glass of wine at Paarl. We are 3 Belgians doeing an overland trip from Belgium to South Africa. See more in the introduction page.

We would like to meet local SA who are willing to show us there niciest places.

Our plan is the following: we will spend Christmas and Newyear in Cape Town. From the 3rd of januari we will traverse the garden route via baviaankloof into Port Elizabeth. From East London into Lesotho. Via Durban back inland untill kruger park. We plan for this trip around one month. After Kruger we have one month more for travelling back to cape town and make arrangement for selling/ shipping the vehicles. And off course buying souverniers for our friends and family in Belgium.
Any suggestion in a good initinary are very welcome. Or maybe a good campsite, a garden were we can pitch our tents? A good glass of wine or a cold one to share our experiences and to have a good time.

We already met a lot of SA and we always had a very nice time. It is never wrong of meeting more nice people. Learn us about your braai, camping and off road skills.
 
Many greetings and hope to see you soon.

Stefanie, Steven and Johan

Hi guys, welcome  :thumleft:

You say you are headed to Lesotho from East London . . .

I`m in Elliot, it might be on your way . . .

You are welcome to come and camp at my place, I have braai and cold ones  :mwink:

I also know of a few stunning places to go ride in the mountains !  :ricky:
