Heading to Cape Town on October.
I was looking for recommendations on safaris in South Africa and/or neghboring countries. Any suggestions on travel from Cape Town to the safari locations would also be helpful.
Madikwe www.madikwe-game-reserve.co.za/ or www.madikwe.info/ is very nice. It is a private reserve with various acommodation options. It is a few hours drive from Johannesburg - as most Safaris are.
There are no real game reserves (safari parks) near Cape Town, so either a long drive is required to the Eastern Cape or a short flight to JOhannesburg.
From Johannesburg there are many tour and transfer companies that transfer to the game parks.
Alternatively, fly to Nelspruit - a short drive from the world famous Kruger National Park. However, this is in a malaria area so take precautions, esp. in summer.
