    "You donít have to rob a bank"

    And you donít have to rob a bank to experience it to the full. Yes, the private game reserves surrounding Kruger provide a five-star service, with liveried footmen ferrying you G?íní?Ts between escorted morning and evening game drives as you tick off the Big Five (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, rhino) in two days... great if youíve just won the lottery.

    I think that "You donít have to rob a bank" being used metaphorically. It means you donít need to work hard or take the trouble . Am I right?

    Thank you,

    Re: "You donít have to rob a bank"

    It means it's not as expensive as you might think to experience the 5-star game reserves. You're not going to need so much money that you have to rob a bank.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
