seniorsit,

Will you need to be in Joburg during any of those five days, or are you free to go elsewhere for all five days?

No offense to Jo'burg, but my recommendation would be to go to Kruger or one of the private reserves. You can get a flight right into the little airports in that area and spend a wonderful few days viewing the animals. We stayed at Elephant Plains in Sabi Sands and it was fabulous. Great acommodations, terrific guide, and an all around wonderful 3 nights. We also took in the Panorama Route right near there between landing at the airport (Hoedspruit I think?) and going to the camp. We had a guide who picked up us, showed us everything and then drove us to the camp. Beautiful country!
