Alright Safari friends, my head is officially spinning! So much information and so many amazing options for our trip.
We will be traveling for our honeymoon the first week of June 2018, and want to do 4 nights in the Kruger area, with 2 nights definitely in Sabi Sands. We are focusing on private lodges with honeymoon deals, and some stay 4/ pay 3 deals, looking for as luxurious as our budget will allow (ideally under 5k for 4 nights), while still allowing for great animal viewing. Thoughts are still all over the place so I broke them out into sections, opinions welcome on all.
Kirkmans Kamp vs. Savanna for all 4 nights- Which do you think is better?
Trying to utilize &Beyond’s honeymoon deals to split game viewing with something a bit more luxurious. It looks like Kirkmans is great for viewing, but not for senic relaxation…So, 2 nights at Kirkmans , with the other 2 at Ngala Safari Lodge or Phina? Which one and why? Which to do first vs last? And if Phinda, which lodge?
Ulusaba Safari vs. Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge. These are the most affordable I've found out of the high end lodges. We could do 4 nights as Ulusaba or 3 at Sabi bush camp. Is it worth spending an extra $600 to stay here, or do you think Kirkmans/ Savanna/ split options would be suffice? We are headed off to either the Seychelles or Mauritius after and would be happy to send the saved money there.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
