As an airline pilot, free flights make all kinds of travel affordable, including an African Safari. We flew to South Africa and rented a $9 a day compact car and drove it 4 hours north to Kruger National Park. There we drove that little car next to elephants, zebras, lions, baboons, giraffes and many other creatures for 10 days. The accommodation at the park was similar to cabins in National Parks in the US but a little cheaper, $50-60 a night. Each Park had a restaurant so we didn’t have to cook. They had typical “American “ dishes like Chicken tender and various pasta for my picky kid as well as standard African dishes. But one day I had avocado toast for breakfast. It was a dream trip and anyone could do this! Also, each camp had a pro safari game drove that took 6-12 people in a typical game vehicle. You could book for these for about $30 per person if you wanted to just sit back and relax. Each game drive was 3 hours.
