Cape Town vaca- Is Getting to Kruger worth it?

Jump to last reply

Hi.. any advice would be so appreciated.

My husband and I have been planning about a 10 day stay in South Africa, mostly in cape town.

I just started looking into a safari in Kruger for about 2 days and 3 nights of our trip.. it appears to be very expense even getting there. Could anyone give me a price estimate who's done it? Flying.. as we dont have much time.

Then I've read staying at private reserve will be better if we only have two days.. that also seems expensive.

I'm wondering if maybe its best if we just stay in Cape town and see one of the (yes I know they are zoo-like) reserves nearby?

Does anyone have any tips on making the trip from CT to Kruger more affordable? We were looking into Elephant Plains lodge. But are open to anything that's more accessible. No concerned with luxury at all.

Thanks so much for any help you can provide.
