My wife and I are in the preliminary stages of planning a trip to South Africa. We have a little over two weeks and would like to be able to see a little of Johannesburg, and then spend the majority of the time between Cape Town and Kruger. Is it feasible to rent a car upon leaving J'burg and drive to these locations relatively easily. My biggest concern is once arriving at destinations what to do with it (mostly in Cape Town ). Do most hotels provide parking (even if for a reasonable fee), it seems that it is not too safe to leave cars on the street at night from reading several posts. Any thoughts? Also, we are thinking of doing a mix of self drive through kruger and some planned safaris through a reserve hotel, do the hotels allow parking as well?
While I'm at it, does anyone feel strongly about flying between these destinations and driving...always +/- to both sides, interested on any perspective, as it seems cost for flights and cost for rental car aren't that far off.
