Need advice - 5 Days in South Africa at the start of May

Jump to last reply

Hi -

I'm traveling for work to Namibia at the end of April but on coming back through Johannesburg have held my return for 5 days to do some additional 'fun' travel.

As the time is coming up quickly (this trip was somewhat sprung on me), I'm hoping this forum is helpful for working out a few ideas for what to do with my time. My thoughts are below - pls, feel free to comment/criticize..

1. Victoria's Falls - too far? too much time? Not ideal for solo traveler?

2. Safari - Can I situate this myself or do I need to go through a travel agent? Any suggestions on which game park to visit? Again, traveling alone so would like some sense of social atmosphere.

3. Drakensbergs - Hiking/Camping..

4. Stay in Johannesburg? - But is 5 days too much time there? Should I use this opportunity to visit other parts of SA?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions...
