I'm visiting friends who live in Hoedspruit but they're only going to have been there for a week or so before we arrive! My partner has never been on safari, so I want to do this.
However, what i can't work out is whether you can go to the game reserves in the area without staying in their on-site lodges? I've only ever been to the big places (like Kruger) before, where you don't have to be staying there to go in.
Also - does anyone know, what are the chances of seeing big 5 in these smaller reserves?
We could go to Kruger but I hadn't realised how many other smaller ones were in the area!
Also, only there for 3 nights total..!
Thanks so much for any help on this.
