I have a few questions for you regarding Mozambique and the Kruger National Park
Question 1: We are now evaluating the possibility to stay a few days in the Kruger Park before passing the border to Mozambique. Do you think it will be possible for us to see the Kruger Park with our hired Isuzu 4×4 by ourselves or it will be necessary to have a ranger with us?
Answer: You can drive around in the Kruger Park at will. You pay an entry fee, get a map and then you can drive around on your own for the whole day – I can highly recommend the Kruger Park!!
Question 2: How much is the park entrance approximately?
Answer: Have a look at this website: http://www.krugerpark.com/conservation-fees.htm all the info you need about the Kruger can be found here.
Question 3: Do you know any cheap place where to sleep in the Kruger Park? Since we are landing in Johannesburg on August 9, early morning, we would like to reach the Kruger Park within august 9 night, sleeping in a cheap place there and wake up the morning after, visit the park and maybe sleeping in another different place nearest to the mozambique border. Please tell me if this could be feasible.
Answer: If I were you I’d sleep in the park, there are excellent camping spots for very reasonable prices within the park. You’ll find the park contact details on the website I gave you, make your booking as soon as possible. Try to stay at least 2 nights, the Kruger Park is Awesome!!
Question 3: We are also thinking about the possibility to visit the lake Malawi. What about this with respect to the car rental insurance and fees? Would you charge us a surplus? Malawi is very nice, but very far.
Answer: Remember, you don’t travel as fast in Africa as elsewhere in the world, the roads are not always good. In my opinion I’d rather leave Malawi for a next trip. I ask all out clients what they would have done differently the next time they hire a 4×4, and nearly everyone’s reply is that they’ll take it easier and not drive as much. Rather spend a few more days in the Kruger. Also, North West Mozambique is very flat and boring to drive. And 90% of things to do & see in Mozambique happens along the coast.
Question 4: How is the tent floor? Is it soft or hard? Is it suggested to have a soft air mattress with us?
The rooftop tents have built in mattresses, you don’t need an air mattress.
