          Hello there. My Family and I are travelling from Australia and arriving into SA in Johannesburg. Would you recommend us hiring a car to travel from the airport so we could use it during the stay there? Do we have to book the game reserve visits separately and if so how much per person as an estimate? Do we use their vehicles? Thank you Husain
