We are 3 adults who will be travelling to South Africa in November. Because we are only going for 2 weeks, we decided to travel to Cape Town area (wineroute/gardenroute) and not Johannesburg area. We will rent a car and book guesthouses/ B&Bs and create our own route. We like to see a lot of things but also like the occasional moment of rest at the beach/pool/...
We would like to do a game drive safari, but of course Krugerpark is not an option if we only explore the Cape Town area... I have been looking on the internet and there seem to be quite a few (private) game parks in the CT area as well. We only want to see wild animals, doesn't have to be exactly the big five...
So is there any game park in the area you would recommend?
Is it possible to have a game experience in one of these that lives up to the standards of Kruger Park concerning wildlife?
Would you recommend staying a night in a game park (is that really worth the money), or is it better to rent a room somewhere close to the park and taking a day safari?
thanks for your help!
