South Africa - Sabi Sands Reserve and what else?

Jump to last reply

We are in the process of planning a trip to South Africa August 2012 (My dream!!). We are looking for a safari experience where we can see Big 5 and some and stay at a moderate priced lodge 4 nights. In addition we want to add something else to our trip to make it even more memorable (I can't imagine we will ever be back) that won't add too much cost. I can't imagine flying all the way from NY to South Africa and only doing 4 days at a reserve...but we do have a budget to keep in mind.

As of now, we are thinking Sabi Sands Reserve (possibly Exeter River Lodge) for 4-5 nights and we would like to add something else to our trip at a minimal cost. Ideas include a local/cultural experience, visit to Johannesburg or cape town, another reserve/conservation center, ?? any suggestions appreciated. Only problem is we only have another $500-$1,500 to spend. There are so many wonderful options in South Africa, however not necessarily within budget. Any add on experiences would be wonderful.
