You’re getting lots of responses. We have been over multiple times for both hunting and holiday we plan on going more. We are by no means wealthy but we both have decent careers. While the exchange rate for SA does help, a few other things we have done ( once you find an outfitter you trust) we just wire him money every so often- takes the sting out of coming up with a large amount of cash as well as eliminating having to travel with cash. The first few trips we got comments of how can you afford that ? The reality we have learned is we can travel there and stay longer for less than the average cost to popular destinations in the USA. ( think Disney or a week or two at the shore) We’ve also learned it’s a long way to go for 7 or 10 days and the flight is fairly expensive but once there things are quite reasonable ( food air bnb .. quick flight to the cape) There are lots of ways to explore there that aren’t expensive but you must research and find a reputable outfitter. Understand what is and isn’t included in you package. Look at day fees and if they are going to charge you for laundry or airport pickup/ transfer or add on animals I’ve seen nice packages offered but the trophy fees for additional animals is substantial. You’ve received some great information here I look forward to reading all the responses more thoroughly. Whatever you decide to do I can tell you it is unlike anywhere else in the world calm, yet wild - beautiful, simple and exciting every single day.
