Please Give Advice For For Trip To South Africa

My brother was nice enough to give me a voucher to travel around the world. I would like to go to South Africa in early May 2006, but will only have four or five days there. I am a 38 year old male, travelling alone. How safe is it for me to be there alone? I know that I would like to go to an animal park. Please give me advice on where I should go? Sould I go to Cape Town or Johannesburg? What park should I go to? Would it be safer for me to just go to Capetown and go to an animal park over there? Should I rent a car? Should I stay in a park? It seems very expensive to stay in the park so I was wondering if I would be missing out if I stayed outside a park? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

for a few days i would choose Cape Town.
since u wanna visit "animal park" i'd probably go to Kruger NP.
Driving from JHB to Kruger: go through scenic Blyde River Canyon, God's window, Three Sisters etc'. u reach from Kruger gate
