Kruger: Private lodge or self-drive for 3 nights?

Jump to last reply

I will be visiting South Africa for the second time in August and I'm having trouble deciding whether we should stay at a private lodge or do a self-drive for 3 nights.

On our last trip, we stayed at a private lodge in the Sabi Sands (Arathusa) and loved the experience, but the idea of driving ourselves throughout the park is pretty exciting. It would be a lot cheaper too. We've never driven in another country so that makes us a little bit nervous.

If we do decide to stay at a private lodge, we want to spend as little as possible so we are thinking about either the Africa on Foot camp or nThambo Tree Camp. They look fantastic!

Also, before going to Kruger, we will spend 3 nights in Chobe and 3 nights in Victoria Falls (where we will do either a walking safari or a game drive in the Zambezi National Park). We are also going to Durban for a few days after Kruger and we will probably do a day trip to the Tala Game Reserve or the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve. Is it too much time spent on safari?

t is so hard to decide. Please help!
