Capetown to Kruger - 4-5 days

Hi there,

my brother is volunteering with niall mellon in capetown for a week in November 2012. he is staying on another week and wants to go to Kruger. I have been there but did an extended trip of vic falls and Kruger and would not be sure about the best way to get from CT to Kruger. He has 3-4 days and would have a €500-600 budget. He does not want to camp but wouldnt mind sluming it a bit. Any ideas of guided tours - reasonable - he does not want to self drive. There will also be two others with him to share the cost. I priced flights CT to Joberg 160euro approx and a 3 day trip with intrepid 420euro. Is this his best option? Any help would be great thanks.

Yes the cheapest option would be to fly to Johannesburg and join a guided Kruger Park safari from there. There are several companies that offer this, some of them stay inside the Kruger Park, and others just outside the Kruger Park in a smaller reserve. Some use closed vehicles, others use open vehicles. So compare carefully. Most safaris to Kruger depart from Johannesburg early in the morning, so he would need to either fly very early (the 6 am flight from CT) or fly the previous evening and spend one night in Joburg. A more expensive option is to fly to Nelspruit and join a safari from there, that way the flight is at a more reasonable hour but it costs more than the Joburg flight.

Hope this helps.
