RSA: Tswalu vs Mashatu vs Phinda

Jump to last reply

At a vaguely spur of the moment , as we say here in Yankeeland, we are consdeiring a Mid-late 2013 September trip to CapeTown, Londolozi, and one other game park, not self -drive, destination) (Or, perhaps just time in CPT and more in Londo)

I have been on one Southern AFrican visit (see incomplete report here); travel partner has never been to Africa at all and this is kind of a surprise.

So: What do you all advise about breaking up the time..I would like minimum of 6 days in Capetown, will have guide/driver, and perhps visit Winelands from there. Not too interested in wine, thus thinking of maximum one night in Winelands, wich I know are gorgeous....last time I stayed at Academie Suites which we liked quite a bit.

Then, more important:

Londolozi: Which camp? How many nights? How many in vehicle? Worth it to just spend the rest of the tie there, rather than adding an addition game reserve?

Animals more important than wine list, if you get my drift!!!

Please give opinions on Tswalu, Mahatu, Phinda, all suggested by locals who are in the know. --assume we will be in the more luxe of the options at each. Budget is generous as this is for a big celebration for partner.
