My almost final itinerary to SA and Zambia - your thoughts

Jump to last reply

thanks to all the great info on this board, I now think that we have a near-final itinerary. I am just working on the quote (since I have changed it so many times) and sadly was not able to get us upgrades with the Virgin Miles I've been saving but we will have one free flight on SAA, which means one extra night at Mala Mala.

I have not as yet booked any tours since I just want the land and flights sorted, but I'm hoping to do that later.

Here goes:
fly Tuesday, October 14 from JFK arrive Wednesday in JNB and connect to Cape Town
- 5 nights accomodations at David's Guest House in Green Point (our more budget friendly option recommneded by a coworker who knows David and Hannes)
- Monday October 20th fly to MQP to arrive at Mala Mala in time for afternoon game drive
- 4 nights Mala Mala Main camp in a suite
- Friday, October 24 - fly MQP to JNB due to logistics - relaxing night at Hilton Sandton with HHonors points
- Saturday October 25 - fly JNB to LVI
- 2 nights Royal Livingstone, hoping to do the helicopter ride on day 1 and tea / swimming on Livingstone island on Day 2
- Monday, October 28th fly LVI to arrive at JNB 3:30 p.m. then check in for intl flight to JFK at 6:50 p.m.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. If we had to spend the last night in JNB (i.e., if we are cutting it too close with the flight from LVI and the flight to JFK) we will have to cut either a night in CPT or a night at MM, which would you suggest?
