Can anyone comment on itinerary & price for SA trip?

Thanks and I would really appreciate any thoughts/comments! We arrive JNB on August 24 and leave on September 6.

1 - Arrive JNB, pick up rental car & spend the night at friend's house in Pretoria
2 - friend's house in Pretoria
3 - drive to Timbavati in Greater Kruger for Ngala Walking Safari
4 - Ngala Walking Safari
5 - Ngala Walking Safari
6 - drive to Stone Camp, Mkhaya Game Reserve in Swaziland
7 - Stone Camp, Mkhaya Game Reserve
8 - drive to Hluhluwe River Lodge
9 - Hluhluwe River Lodge
10 - Hluhluwe River Lodge
11 - drive to Durban, return rental car, catch flight to Cape Town, pick up rental car, spend the night at friend's house in Hout Bay
12 - friend's house in Hout Bay
13 - friend's house in Hout Bay
14 - return rental car, fly to JNB, catch flight to JFK

The cost though CCAfrica is ZAR 30,822 for 2 people. Basically the price is for the rental car, Ngala Walking Safari, Stone Camp, Hluhluwe River Lodge and 2 internal flights.

Is this a "good" price? We're trying to not go all out and spend a fortune. Thanks for your help!

I can't comment on the price, but I can advise that Mkhaya is a very interesting park and Swaziland a safe country -- we tracked white rhino on foot in Mkhaya and got within 15 feet or so (we were too close to take photos with the zoom lens!). We had lunch at Stone Camp and it seemed very nice, with some semi-tame ostriches wandering around.

Thanks! I have heard wonderful things about Mkhaya (and the rhinos and ostriches...) and I think I am most looking forward to that part of the trip.
