Thinking about South Africa for May

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary this year and both of our birthdays in June. We typically take a trip abroad in the late Spring/early summer to celebrate these occasions and we would love to go to South Africa this year if we could swing it. We are in our mid 30's with no kids and very active, I currently examine all trip locations through a lens of "Could we do this with young kids?" looking at places that will likely be off limits to us for a few years once we have young kids.
We can allot 10-11 days including flight time from the US flying from WAS and are primarily interested in safari and Cape Town (in that order) with a budget of $6000 give or take. I realize that is a fairly low budget for this type of trip.I like boutique type properties but I do not require luxury. I love the look(and price!) on places like Pondoro or Mohlabetsi. While I'd be excited with any game sightings I am particularly interested in cheetahs. Is there any financial incentive to booking everything on our own? As always any advice is appreciated.
