&Beyond Lodges? Honeymoon Help !

Hi everyone! I am planning my honeymoon for November. I am looking for suggestions on what safari to stay at. I have been looking at &Beyond lodges and they are all so beautiful. Does anyone have any reviews from staying with them or recommendations on which destinations are best. This will be our first safari, we will be in Cape Town but are open to traveling in any direction. I have looked into Phinda & Sabi Sands or possibly Botswana. I would like to stay 5-7 days total between 2 different spots. Im looking to get a good mix of scenery ! Also open to suggestions that arent &Beyond
I would absolutely love to stay somewhere thats known to have elephants visit the lodge or villa ! Would like to stay under 1k pp a night.
Can anyone make recommendations based on accommodations and safari experience at this time of year.

Thanks so much!

I would suggest working with a safari planner on this, rather than focus on a provider and try to navigate this yourself. You have a healthy budget and a safari planner could really pull out all the stops to make it something super special. I've worked with both The Wild Source and Expert Africa and I think they'd do an amazing job with you on this. They have access to camps everywhere, no matter the brand name (including &Beyond) and there's no extra cost for them to work with you. They're also likely to have access to deals or packages you don't through their personal relationships with camps. They will also handle everything for you from the time you land in Africa to the time you leave again, including bush flights, ground transport, etc. Reach out to them and let them know what you're interested in, like you did here, and have them propose some itineraries for you to choose from.

amyb is absolutely spot on. your budget and freedom should create the opportunity for a planner to bring you some great options. we have worked with Lion World and have came away impressed by both their work and the experiences we had on safari.
