Has anyone got any advice they could offer me about travelling to and around Kruger on my own?! I'm a 31 year female and am heading off to South Africa in early Septemeber. I'll be on my own for a week and was thinking about going to Kruger on Safari. I have heard differing reports on this. One seems to say South Africa isn't that safe. Don't travel anywhere alone or you'll be robbed at knife point (My Mother obviously!!) and the other seems to be saying an organised safari trip is unnecessary and over priced. You'd be just as well off to rent a car and drive out there alone going looking on your own without a guide. I don't have bucket loads of cash so money is a consideration but on the other hand I'd quite like to come back in one piece and am not interested in compromising my safety to safe a few pounds! Any advice would be gratefully received!
