Sabi Sands or Phinda... please help!!

Jump to last reply

Me and my fiancee are going to South Africa and Botswana for our honeymoon this coming december.
We only have 20-23 days for the trip, and the more I study the countries the more places I want to visit!! I cannot decide which places to leave out. If you are experienced with southern Africa...PLEASE HELP!! =)

My dream itinerary would be something like:
1.-Victoria Falls (Tongabezi Safari Lodge or Royal Livingstone Hotel) ?
2.-Botswana Okavango Delta (Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp or Vumbura Plains)?
3.-Cape Town
4.-Rent a car and drive through the Garden Route. Maybe spend a couple of days?
5.-Phinda (Vlei Lodge, Mountain Lodge, Forest Lodge?)
6.-Drakensberg Mountains (I dont know where but at least on internet pictures the place looks amaaaaazing!!)
7.-Sabi Sand (Leadwood lodge. If I still have a budget, is Singita really worth it?)

I need to cross out parts of my itinerary...I cant decide which. I've never been to Africa before and everything looks spectacular in the internet.


PS
If I had to choose between Phinda and Sabi Sand...What would you advice me?


Thakyou in advance...=)
