Recommended non-luxury "budget" safari camps

Jump to last reply

I'm lucky enough to have my airfare from the US to Capetown paid for a business trip in June. As this is my second time to Capetown/South Africa, I would love to take a few days to the Eastern Cape for a true safari experience.

Looking at the recommended, popular camps listed here in Sabi Sands (MalaMala, Londozi), these are too expensive for me. I'm hoping to get some advice on the camps in Timbavati and Klaserie as they are noted as being much more reasonable in price on this forum. Camps mentioned here that are in a price range that I can afford are Simbavati, nThambo, Arathusa, Kings Camp.

Are any of these much better than the others? Or are there other camps to consider?
