Northern Kruger Park is fairly wild. Gonarezhou is perhaps quite a lot wilder but Parque Nacional do Limpopo is really wild.
This remote corner of Africa is where I will be going from Sept 30 to Oct 07, 2012. You can join me, I can take up to 5 adults in my Toyota Condor 4x4, and all you need is your passport and a slight sense of adventure.
Listening to my tales of travels on the "Further side" of Africa.
Punda Maria region and notorious "Crook's Corner" (read Bulpin's "Ivory Trail" for some idea of what I am referring to).
Crossing the Limpopo, Nuanetsi and Lunde rivers.
Gonarezhou. Know anyone who's been there? Enough said.
Parque Nacional do Limpopo - the "other" side of Kruger Park.
This is Africa that Hemingway would approve of (without the guns)

Here is some additional info regarding what is included in the price of this trip:
Cost (PER PERSON)
EXCLUDING BORDER VISA COST ($80x2), alcoholic drinks, and meals at restaurants.
Group of 5 people: $600 PER PERSON.
Group of 4 people: $750 PER PERSON.
Group of 3 people: $1000 PER PERSON.
Group of 2 people: $1500 PER PERSON.
INCLUDED IN COST:
All camping equipment (1 or 2 per tent, mats, sleeping bags with seperate cotton inners, chairs, tables etc). You need only to bring light clothing, warm jacket and cameras.
All park entrance and overnight camping fees (obviously covers Kruger, Gonarezhou and Parque Nacional do Limpopo).
3 full meals per day, snacks and cooldrinks and plenty of bottled water.
NOT INCLUDED IN COST:
Meals at restaurants.
Personal travel and evacuation insurance.
Mozambique and Zimbabwe visa fees. Visas are issued at Pafuri into Mozambique and Sango (Chicualacuala) into Zimbabwe.
Apart from the day we leave Joburg (at 0400), and the day we return to Joburg (2200), every day we will begin with filter coffee or hot chocolate plus rusks, go on dawn Game-Drives (or walks where permitted) and then enjoy a full South African breakfast.
The heat of the day will be yours to enjoy - either in the shade of a tree or at a riverside view point.
Our midday meal will be light with bread, salads and fruit on offer.
Sundowners in the African bush are an important and meaningful ritual.
Evening meals will be the traditional South Africa braai.
Campsites in Gonarezhou and Parque Nacional do Limpopo are small and blend into the surroundings so don't be alarmed if we are visited by lion and hyena at night.
I travel lightly and politely in Africa - the people and culture are an essential part of why I enjoy Africa, and this corner especially, so much.
