We (2 couples) won the Zulu charity auction and want to make the most of our trip to SA of course! We will be traveling the last week of August and first week of September.
Our plan so far:
Fly into JoBurg and stay one night to recover (saturday night)
Sunday: catch a flight to Richards bay, rent a car and drive to Zulu
Will be at Zulu from Sunday to Friday - 6 nights.
Tentative plan: Friday to the following Friday in Cape Town?
My question is this: I've seen many say that Zulu Nyala isn't big enough to keep you busy for the 6 days you'll be there. We plan to rent a car for this reason, so we can explore at our leisure and avoid the exorbitant fees that Zulu charges for their excursions (we'll do them ourselves). SO - should we plan to take DAY trip to St Lucia and Phinda, or stay additional days (after our 6 at Zulu) in either of those places? We don't want to be rushed at Zulu, but also not wanting to be bored either. We are willing to stay extra days on this side of the country if worth it! We haven't committed to anything in Cape Town yet, but want to spend some time there as it's said to be such an amazing city.Edited: 07 June 2016, 12:53
