      Sunset and morning game drives in Kruger

      South Africa Apr 14, 2014 at 11:55 AM

      We will be staying in Hazyview and I would like to book a morning and a sunset game drive. I have googled and every site is for guest that book at their accommodations. Does anyone know of a good company that I could contact for just the drives?

      Kruger National Park Apr 10, 2014 at 9:08 PM

      Can game drives be booked at the time the accommodation is booked?
      If not, how do I ensure I don't miss out on the sunset and/or night drive on the day I arrive?

      Also, how early can one check into the camps? 12 noon?

    • Souvenirs and Stuff Durban!

      Durban Apr 8, 2014 at 11:28 AM

      I was interested in buying some personal items in addition to typical South Africans souvenirs from Durban. Unfortunately, I have been to two places, one is missing most of the items I was looking for and the other was a complete rip off and very touristic. Any recommendations for souvenirs and local made items will be very much appreciated. BTW, I'm in Durban!

      Thank you in advance !

      best places to stay

      Cape Town Mar 20, 2014 at 3:48 AM

      We are a young couple visiting S.Africa in September for 2 weeks. The first week we are spending in Kruger and the second in 2 different spots in Cape town. We will have a car for excursions but dont want to use it for everyday use so will want private parking. We would like to stay in a safe area which has easy access to cafes, restaurants, bars etc within walking distance. We are not big party people so the main party streets are out. So far I am thinking somewhere in camps bay with a view of the sea, and then a place near waterfront/green point. Are these areas any good? Any advice would be great! I understand this question has probably been asked many times and appreciate all your knowledge :)

      Is there any specific coastal or otherwise scenic drive that one would recommend from Durban to Margate ?
      I just know that N2 and R102 run in parallel, R102 being closure to the sea. Will it make any sense to take R102 for the from the scenic drive perspective ?

      Hello VT fellows, I am planning to come to SA with my family in December 2014 or January 2015. We have Cape Town and Port Elizabeth in our itinerary. I learnt from my friend who lives in PE that mid December starts the school holiday so we either come first half of December or we wait a month longer and come mid January. Which period is better to arrange our trip? Thanks for your help.

    • just starting to plan our trip to kruger, thanks in advance for answering a zillion questions!

      Kruger National Park Feb 15, 2014 at 11:58 AM

      we just a few days ago realised we can visit kruger after our trip to namibia, but haven't a clue how to go about it! we will be coming during the first week of october from jo'burg in a rented car. so now the questions begin:
      do we need a 4X4?
      is it possible to stay in one camp the whole time (we'll have 4-5 nights) and drive around every day, or should we plan a progression from south to north?
      what camps do you recommend, and why? we will be looking at basic bungalows. will life be more peaceful in smaller camps, and if so, which are those?
      i'm wondering if the way to manage is to buy things for breakfast and lunch, and eat supper at a cafe at the camp. is this how things are done? is there any chance in the universe that we two vegetarians will find what to eat?
      and please tell me everything else that this newbie clearly needs to learn fast! i realise that we need to make up our minds and reserve accommodation soon or we'll be out of luck, so i need to push a rapid learning curve. i do realise that we can get maps and maybe a wildlife guide at the park itself, and that as well as self-drive we should take some guided trips and walks.
      thank you very much for your help, it's much appreciated.
