Mashatu Tented and ??

Jump to last reply

Have finally narrowed down a few choices for my next safari in 2013 however am stuck on a good pairing with Mashatu.

Background is - Travelling solo, looking for mainly cats and then eles, don't need a lot of luxury.

Plan so far is:
Mashatu Tented Camp 3 to 4 nts
3 to 4 nts classic tented camp or mid range lodge (insert suggestion here) :)
Vic Falls Zimbabwe llala Lodge 3 nts day trip to Chobe
Cape Town Parkers Cottage 4 nts

Am looking for suggestions for the 2nd camp (max $500 pppn) that will transfer easily with the above spots, provide great feline sightings and a different eco system to Mashatu. MalaMala was suggested but is a bit pricey for me.

Also not sure of the best routing other than I'd prefer to do CT last. Does it make sense to fly into Joburg, make my way north then back to Joburg and onto CT?

Would like to travel in shoulder season to keep costs down but it seems each country has a different shoulder season. Would appreciate advice with this also.

Thanks! :)
