Affordable tour package through Kruger?

Affordable tour package through Kruger?

My husband and I along with one other couple, are planning a trip to SA during the first two weeks of September. We'd like to incorporate a safari through Kruger, however, we are budget conscious and are not sure what we can afford. So far, it looks like we might do a 5 night deal from Joburg by automobile through Kruger, staying in rest camps quoted around $1100 per person - any more than that is getting up there for us. Does anyone know of alternatives for 5 or 6 day tours during that period? We'd love to stay in a nice lodge if we could, but animal sightings are definitely our priority.

Thanks for the help!

That seems like too much to me for Kruger rest camps. $4400 for 5 nights? Have you looked on the www.sanparks.co.za web site? Are those the accommodations you have been quoted? You can see for yourself what the lodges, camps operated by the park cost in Kruger, and add the park fees for non-residents. You can rent your car in Johannesburg for a week for as little as $300 up to whatever you want to pay. You can arrange your game drives when you are there through the place you are staying and pay for them as you use them. And, you can always do some driving in Kruger yourself. You could not possibly spend $4400 in those 6 days, 5 nights.

4 people in 2 chalets or rooms for 5 nights in the private reserves would indeed be a lot more than the budget you mention - but inside Kruger? No need to pay anywhere near that much.
