My husband and I will be traveling to Cape Town at the end of Oct through Nov 10 for 12 days. I have made a reservation at a bed and breakfast in Cape Town for the first four days. My husband would love to take go on safari. It would be great if we could go somewhere that has the big 5 in a natural setting. I have checked airline reservations to Johannesburg and they seem reasonable. We could also rent a car if that would be better. Does anyone have any suggestions regarding whether it would be better to drive or fly and which locations, hotels, etc. you would recommend for a safari that would be reasonably priced? We will also be flying out of Cape Town.
We have never been to South Africa and it feels daunting to try to put together an itinerary.
