Kruger, Coast & Cape, April 2017
Trip is always on the go. Not much downtime. You pack a lot into 3 weeks. You will be uncomfortable but this shouldn't come as a surprise. Great experience.

Kruger, Coast & Cape, March 2017
The campsites in the national parks were really good! We had lots of stops in interesting places, some spare time to relax occasionally. Early rise and full days! Outside in the elements always, bring some warm clothes! Beautiful sunrises and sunsets!
