Affordable game lodges and transpo??

Jump to last reply

First of all, the information on this board is amazing. Thank you for everything I've learned so far!

OK, here's the deal. Fiance and I bid on a couple packages at a silent auction (great way to get a bargain- WOW) and are now trying to piece together the honeymoon using the two hotel stays as well as add in some time at a game reserve.

What I have so far:
-Round trip air from LAX to CPT (arr Oct 20)and returning from JNB (Nov1): free with United miles.
-3 nights at Le Quartier Francais in Franschhoek (Oct 20, 21, 22)
*Question #1: how do we get to the hotel from the airport, and is wine country close enough to Cape Town to do some of those must-do's while we are sleeping in Franschhoek?
-Game reserve- because I'm finding internal flights SO expensive, I thought we'd do a one-way to JNB from CPT on Kulula air for about $60pp, then rent a car (for another, what, $200?) for a couple days to drive to whatever game lodge we choose.
*big question: is this insane?
-The last leg of the journey is our other silent auction item: 4 nights at the Oberoi in Mauritius. The crazy thing I've figured out is RT fares from JNB to MRU are well over $1000pp unless you stay 5 nights, in which case they go down to about $650 (Air Mauritius) So we may have to find a way to stay one more night in Mauritius (and trust me we can't afford the Oberoi at regular rates!)

Thoughts? Ideas?
Thank you so very very much!
