Need help planning trip to SA/Kruger/Chobe/Vic Falls/Mauritius in May!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I booked our plane tickets to South Africa and need help with the itinerary and booking inter-Africa flights and game reserves.

Below is what we were thinking in terms of itinerary. I would love to hear your thoughts around if we have too little/too much time in a place or if we should consider other places instead of what we have in mind.

We will be arriving in Capetown on 5/13 at 10 am and leaving from Johannesburg on 5/25 at 8 pm; so we have about 13 days.

2-3 days in Capetown
2-3 days in Kruger National Park (need to find a game reserve)
2-3 days Victoria Falls with a day trip to in Chobe National Park in Botswana (safari)
3-4 days in Mauritius

What is the best routing order for this itinerary? We were thinking Capetown -> Mauritius -> Kruger -> Chobe/Victoria Falls but are open to any order that makes the most sense.
We will be using points to book hotels in Capetown and Mauritius.
What is the best way to book inter-Africa flights between locations and game reserves/lodging in Kruger and Victoria Falls/Chobe?
Any recommendations on reserves/lodges? We are looking to spend $300-$400 (total, not per person) per night. I realize this may be a low amount but not many people are traveling and it is winter. Any suggestions on places we should check out?

Thank you in advance for your help!
