What to do with 5 weeks in South Africa(with 2 kids aged 5 and 9)?

Jump to last reply

I am in the process to put together an itinerary for 5 weeks in South Africa (or neighbour countries). We will be going in feb/march 2014 and the only the thing we are certain of, is we want to see Cape Town.But I hope to include Kgalagadi National Park too.
We will fly in at Johannesburg and out of Cape Town. We have been to Africa before, been to most countries in Southern and Eastern Africa. Last year we did 5 weeks selfdrive in Namibia and Botswana, so we have some experience in driving around. On that trip we rented a 4x4 which was pretty useful, but I don´t know if we need that again? We really like wildlife and nature so that is our main interest, last year we really like to bushcamp, but I don´t know if that possible in South Africa. (I been to Kruger,:) )

Any ideas on what to put in the itinerary?? Do we need a 4x4 or just for some parts of the trip? Any thoughts about crossing into other countries?
