Trip to South Africa...
Posted September 22nd, 2012 - 12:58 pm by from Istanbul, Turkey (Permalink)
Hi to everyone,
Never been in South Africa before... Coming over to participate on a motorbike tour on Garden Route and after that would like to see as much as I can in South Africa, so any advice about where to go, stay and what to see will be really appreciated...
I'll be flying over to Cape town by the 21th of November and will be doing the Garden Route with a group of bikers till the 2nd of December... And I have time till the 25th of December... For my flight from CT back to Turkey. So looking forward to hear from the locals or from the other CSs to share their experiences... Or would be great to have a company to travel around... Might consider to rent a car to have a bit of freedom to travel around so anyone who's interested more then welcome to join...

Kind Regards,

Well Emre, that time of the year, Cape Town is GREAT. Should be fantastic weather, and there is lots to see in and around the Garden Route.

Knysna is great. If you are an adventure seeker, try out the bloukrans bungee jump for sure!


Cape Town is fantastic - Table Mountain, penguins at Boulders Beach Camps Bay for Sinful icecream is a must!

If you are in JHB or Durban and I am in either (as I move between the two) perhaps we can meet up and go for supper!

Don't hesitate if you have more questions!

Merhaba :) Jenette,

First of all sorry for the late reply. To be honest I'm feeling kind of lost as I can't plan anything at the moment due to my thight working schedule. I'm waiting for the season to come to it's end which will be the end of October. Then I'll have about 3 weeks to work on it.

As I've told you before first 10 days I'll be doing a motorbike tour. Which will start and end in CT. Then I've got tree more weeks to spend there. South Africa is a very big country and not really sure what I have to do. Might be an option to do a overland trip to Namibia for a while and may be to Durban and JHN or the otherway around with a domestic flight. Would be really great to do some photo safari in Kruger Park as well... I heard about the Lion Park at Pilanesberg... Would be really great to see the lion cubs there... Do you have some experience about the place? Would be really great to hear about it...

I'm sure that I'll have more questions about your country later on hope you won't mind... And of course if we come across somewhere I'll be delighted to have a chance to go for supper.

Once again thanks a lot and hope to hear from you soon.

Kind Regards,
