Two Weeks in Capetown, want to add a safari

Jump to last reply

We are two senior citizens from the USA. Definitely NOT into camping, but not into luxury travel either. We tend to be travelers of B&B accommodations in Europe and La Quinta/cheap but clean hotels in the US. We spend our money on local food, wine and experiences. We are not history buffs. We do not expect to get back to Africa again.

We do home exchanges, and have the opportunity to do 2-3 weeks in Cape Town. We will have a vehicle and do organized tours in CT, but we do NOT want to drive ourselves significant distances. I think 2 weeks in CT will be plenty, so we would like to add an animal safari to our trip. Approximate dates for our CT accommodations are Nov 13-Dec 4 but flexibility exits at either end for the safari portion.

It is possible for us to arrive or depart in a different city than CT (like Jo-Berg). Can someone suggest how we might arrange for a safari of 4-6 days that will NOT involve us driving anywhere? Recommended safari companies or even a travel agent much appreciated - but please remember that we ARE senior citizens.
