South Africa is proud to have a large number of nature reserves with an abundance of game.
The largest and most famous is the Kruger National Park.
Other governmental reserves are Pilanesberg, Hluhluwi and Addo, and together with numerous private reserves throughout the country, the choice isn't easy.
A visit to South Africa is a good opportunity to visit the Victoria Falls, at low flight rates, and visit the excellent Chobe game reserve, which features a spectacular river safari.
Kruger National Park - Where to stay
The Safaris' private camps provide comfortable accommodation, all meals and 2 tours per night's stay.
These are private lands on which the drivers follow the animals off road.
The governmental camps are situated in strategic breathtaking locations and offer a variety of activities as Bush Walks (From age 12), Game Drives (From Age 6) and more.
The disadvantage is that the accommodation provided by the government is mostly very basic.
Staying outside the park
Outside the park the accommodation is often more comfortable and with a better value for money.
One can still join most of the park's activities when sleeping outside of the park.
Recommendation: combine a private and governmental stays for the full experience.
