South Africa - Feb/Mar 2023

CApe Town (TBD)
Safari (TBD)
Beach (TBD)


I present to you our initial, very high level, plan/proposal.   Initial thoughts to get us started. 


Please take a look and let me know what you think.  What you like, what you don't like, what you would like to add/remove, etc.   


As we start defining things, I will start adding details on the page to have everything in just one place. 

To Note:  For now I am using Feb 24 to March 19, as possible travel dates.  Once we define dates, I will update estimates and availabilities as needed. 

Cape Town

Saturday, Feb 25, to Saturday, Mar 4 (7 nights)

Departing Friday, Feb 24th 

Travel: Flights flights from LAX about 25hrs.  United best option around $1400.

Delta starting around round $1600 p/p

Accommodation: I am recommending two areas to stay: City Bowl, and Camps Bay.  City Bowl is central. Walking distance to many city attractions. Camps Bay is a great beach area, more romantic, great cafes and restaurants. More Posh. 

I am listing some options in both. Airbnbs and hotels. They hotels are similar to the kind of hotel you like to stay at (based on reference. 5 Star/Very high reviews), and the airbnbs are also highly rated, and modern.  Big difference in prices. 

  • Hotels are around the $3700-4000

  • Airbnbs are around $1000-1900
