August is late winter and not the best time to visit although the temperature varies widely, from north to south and day to day .
All arrangements can be found via websites on the INTERNET and remember car hire is a necessity. The distances are vast and better travelled by aircraft, you really should know what you want to do before you go. Durban - tropical. Jo` burg- cold, sometimes frost and warm in the afternoon returns to cold at night. Capetown, Port Elizabeth- cool with rain like here but also warm days.

Late August was IDEAL when we did the same thing last year.... it start to get hot and there are no green shoots on the trees and shrubs to interfer with your safari viewing pleasure.

We booked a great little B&B in Johannesburg called Wraybury House. They'll pick you up from the airport and cook a great meal (£10 for the latter I seem to remember). They work with a company called Themba Tours for trips to the Kruger. You have a number of options but our lodge was Thornhill Lodge in a private game reserve. If you go, try and ask for one of the two rooms which has the indoor shower a secondary glass door leading into an outdoor one. It is all enclosed. The meal in Boma was good. the tour to Kruger were great, saw the big five on the first day. The Mohololo Rehabilitation Centre is cheesy but gets you close some animals including a baby Rhino ... so cute.

Again, highly recommended. Good 3-4 days like what we did, 5 is starting to get too much. We went to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe on the same trip, if you need tips, let me know.

Enjoy, Kevin

PS: If you have time to do Cape Town too, it is superb.

There are plenty of stunning National Parks in SA other than the Kruger, i'm hopping to get to the Addo as it has the 'big 7' which also includes Whales and Great White's because its on the coast. (Be weird seeing a Great White Shark sunning itself up a tree)

Went to hluhluwe imfolozi park last year as was amazed at how cheap it was.
