    Default Planning a RoadTrip to KZN July 2016

    We are planning a 2 week road trip to North KZN and need some advice on campsites.
    We are fully geared for off road / 4x4 (Bushlapa)

    The idea is to leave Cape Town on Friday afternoon and sleep over at BeaufortWest.

    From there:
    Clarens
    Harrismith
    Jozini
    Utshwayelo
    BhangaNek
    Mkobela
    Mabibi
    Dukandluvo
    St Lucia
    OnRoute
    Cape Town


    1. Which camp sites would you recommend?

    2. Is July a TigerFishing Season?

    3. Which places warrant a few days stay?

    4. Must do’s that must be added to our list?

    5. Which area’s to avoid?

    6. Do we need malaria meds for July?

    7. Which area should we add to our list?

    Thanks


    A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.<O</O

    Hi. I cant comment on all but the Bhangasneck mabibi area definitely warrants a few days to explore. The snorkeling at Kosi mouth and Lalasneck is awesome as is the fishing in the area

    The snorkelling at Kosi is most definitely a must do! Then the whole trip down the Eastern Shores is amazing..

    Black Rock
    Mabibi
    Bhangas Neck
    and more...

    I don't believe you need Malaria meds for July.. that is not in the height of season so normal mozzie spray will suffice.
