I am traveling by myself to KNP on 11/25/2013 . I read a lot of threads here but I'm confused by a few things. Would you please help to clarify first and give me some suggestions?
To my understanding, I have 3 options:
1. I can stay in the park and do a self-drive tour. I think it will not be fun since I am by myself.
Q 1: Are there non-self-drive tours I can join in the park? I think it will be ideal for me to drive from Jo'burg to KNP. Then join a tour that takes me around for 3,4 days. Staying in different parts of the park.
Q2: are there day trips/drives available in the park? In that case I can stay by myself but go with a group every day.
2. I can stay at a private lodge where game drives are offered.
Q3: does this mean we will go to close by areas during the day and come back to the same place every night?
Q4: Other than the accommodations, do most of the lodges offer the same game drives?
3. I can join a safari tour from Jo'burg.
Q5: I looked up a few tour operators. It looks like they don't stay in the park Is that for all tours? Any tour stay in the park you can recommend?
I know it's a lot of questions. If you can answer any of the 5 it will be great.
Thank you very much!!!
