    The ONLY city that you shouldn't miss is Cape Town! Personally, after that, South Africa is all about the country....but there are many fantastic towns, beaches and national parks to keep you busy. In 2 weeks you could happily travel all around the highlights of CT and along some of the Garden Route. However, if it is just city life you are after then Durban has some great points too. It would be possible to drive between the two but you would be very pushed. It would help to know what sort of things you are interested in seeing?Cape TownCape Townimage from cunard.com

    If you want it cool and relaxing with beach and surf and nature and some culture: Start in Capetown, rent a car at the airport (book in advance from your home country) cross the winelands, drive to the cape peninsula and then just go with the flow down the garden route. I have done that last year with my wife and little daughter. Return when your time is over via R62 through the inland (different vegetation, landscape etc.) If it is not the christmas holiday season (til mid of january) there should be no problem to book accomodation with little time in advance.

    Start in Cape Town, drive around Cape Point and venture further inland to Franschhoek and Paarl. From there go towards Port Elizabeth and travel along the Garden Route.

    To add to Emily's answer, I would suggest Port Elizabeth. It's a 2h flight away from Cape Town and features the Addo Elephant National Park nearby.
