South Africa August Possible Itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are making progress on our search for a first time vacation to Africa. To say we are excited would be such an understatement. I have received my first thorough response from a solicited consultant. I have spent the past few weeks researching these boards as well as trip advisor. I really appreciate the knowledge and experience from you Fodorites. I would really like to hear your views on this "first draft" itinerary. There are already a couple of things I will change, but I want to see what you all suggest first.
Thanks so much for your help.
We are a group of 2. Dh and myself. Traveling from Philadelphia. We are flexible as to time but prefer August at this point due to lowest airfare. We are planning soon-June -August. Somewhere between 8-12 days.
I've requested Kruger private reserve, No city tours, wildlife is main priority with fewest possible people in a vehicle. Not ultra luxury-no butlers or plunge pools, but must at least have en suite bath. No self catering or self drive.
Would like to see Kruger, Vic Falls and Chobe if time permits. Kruger and widlife being the priority.
This is what I've gotten so far.:
routing for the itinerary is as follows:

6 Nights - Kruger Park at to different lodges - in 2 different areas
3 nights Chapungu Lodge Timbavati Luxury Tent - Double on a Full Board & Activities
3 nights Arathusa Safari Lodge Standard - Double on a Full Board & Activities

2 Nights Victoria Falls
The Kingdom at Vic Falls Standard - Double on a Bed & Breakfast
Sundowner Cruise
Tour of the Falls

2 Nights Chobe
Chobe Safari Lodge Safari Double Room
1 Morning Game Drive & 1 Afternoon Boat Cruise

All transportation included except internatinal flight from and to USA. Included is ground transportation and the 3 flights from Joh to Kruger to Livingstone to Johan.

Thank you for any help!
