Please let me know if my itinerary sounds feasible and any recommendations you might have. I have never tried to plan a trip so close to my travel dates before, so sorry for not being more educated (I am reading more every day).
Arrive in Johannesburg (June 6th @ 8am) and Drive 3-4 Hours to Kruger. (Route recommendations are greatly appreciated). Spend 4 nights in Kruger I am thinking partially self catered and partially game reserve. I need to average $150pp per night ($300 night), which I understand is low but I am hoping with self catering some it may be feasible. If this is not feasible to achieve while still getting the "true" experience, please let me know.
June 10th drive back to Johannesburg for an outgoing flight (leaving at 11:25 am) to Victoria Falls 1 PM 6/10. Spend 3 nights near Victoria Falls maybe travel 1.5 hours over Chobe National Park. (Is hiring a car for this leg of the journey smart or would you recommend joining a tour group?)
Fly Home June 14th.
A little bit of background on us. We are in our late 20s and will be celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary. I would probably like to stay somewhere fairly nice on our anniversary (6/7/14), however outside of that day I would prefer a safe, clean place to lay my head and spend more money on activities and getting the best experience possible. I prefer to stay pretty active, and I am a bit of an adrenaline junky. My husband is very laid back and more of a go with the flow kind of guy.
Thank you so much for your help!!!
