Hi, my husband and I will be travelling to South Africa at the end of the year.
We will be landing at Johannesburg on Dec 22 and departing on Jan 5. We would like to do a few good game drives, the Garden route and spend a few days in Cape Town. We don't want to miss out on anything as we may not be able to travel to South Africa again during New Year's.
I have a few questions in this regard:
1. Is Kruger the best option? Or should we do one of the smaller safaris like Mabula with greater chances of sighting game?
2. Is it best to take a package group tour with the convenience of being driven around everywhere? I am not too sure of our driving skills and my husband just stresses too much while driving so a self-drive may not be the best option.
3. Would any of you be able to recommend a good tour company? We were looking at a maximum spend of about $4,000 for the two of us.
4. Is Victoria Falls worth visiting? And can we skip Swaziland?
