My boyfriend and I are planning on travelling to SA Oct 06. So far "DRIFTERS" 18 day overland safati from Jburg to Cape Town is looking the best choice for us, as we both prefer 'roughing it' to 'luxury' on trips like this.It's ���1200 each, which includes food and accommodation(mostly DRIFTERS inn's and camps)and all park entry fees for the 18 days. In this time we will visit Kruger, Hazyview, Swaziland, Dolphin coast, Drakensburg, Ladybrand, Karoo, Garden Route and Cape Town. Is this alot to pay, I don't think so? I have looked up reviews on drifters on the net but can't seem to find anything but THEIR website, does anyone know anything about this company or better yet has anyone travelled with them??
Would we be better off renting a car and driving this route ourselves? We would like to avoid commercialism as much as possible without missing out on the best places. Is this achievable??
