      Travel with child

      by tpbalazs Online Now Sep 9, 2014 at 5:53 PM

      We have 11-12 days to travel between Port Elizabeth and Capetown, Dec 14 to 25 or 26. It is myself, my wife, and our six-year-old boy. We are looking for suggestions for an affordable itinerary that will be fun for all.
      We definitely want to do a safari, probably Addo and maybe others? See penguins. See whales if possible. Maybe spend some time on the beach.
      Thoughts? Suggestions?
      P.S. if you're not staying in a park like Addo, do you have to make reservations to visit?
      Thanks for any help.

      I've been accepted to study at Nelson Mandela University, PE for 2013 and will be bringing my son who is in the 5th grade. I am looking for suitable and safe neighborhoods we could live in. My son's father is very concerned about crime and it really THAT bad in PE? I've read that there is crime and also that PE is known as the "Friendly City." Any information you can give me for perspective that I can share with him would be great. Thank you so much for your help.

      by morgandy Online Now Jan 1, 2012 at 9:43 AM


      I am having an impossible time trying to find a town and hotel for a quick night stay between PE and Durban. Umtata seems as if it might be the best, but I can't find a list of hotels. I've heard there are many, but, I need feedback as to whether Umtata would be suitable mid-way point, and any site you can direct me to with a comprehensive list of hotels. OR, if you have suggestions, I would so appreciate it.

      Thanks greatly...

Department stores have NOTHING as they have started to unpack their winter range. Please suggest some stores in PE that might be able to help - the kids want to swim desperately and have nothing to wear!

    • Garden Route - overnight stops?

      by missesg Online Now Feb 28, 2007 at 3:43 AM

      yes, me again :-D. Ok, so still pondering what to do when we get to PE, but have got a few weeks to figuer that one out still, but I am also struggling with our stopover locations as we drive from Cape Town to PE.
      I almost know the guidebook off by heart, and I've looked on countles websites, but there are so many fab places to stop, but we can only make 3 stopovers, and one of those will definately be Hermanus/Gansbaai. So, the other two... Knysna looks lovely, but it looks a long drive from Hermanus to Knysna.
      Am I right in guessing it will take between 3-4 hours to drive from Knysna to PE? And, where do you recommend we make our other stoppover?
      I'm sorry for all the questions - the more I try and research it myself using the guide books, the moer confused I get.

      by missesg Online Now Feb 27, 2007 at 6:10 AM

      My husband & I will be spending one night in Port Elizabeth, in early May, after driving along the Garden Route from Cape Town, before catching a flight to Johannesburg.
      We'll be arriving sometime in the afternoon, and our flight will be the following afternoon, so looking for somewhere not too far from the airport (although we will have a car, so maybe up to half hour drive?) - pref. by the coast.
      Unfortunately, dont think we will we have much time to explore Port Elizabeth itself on this occasion, but somewhere with a nice restaurant as well would be good.
      Any area, or hotel recommendations much appreciated :-)
