Final decisions on S. African trip

After scouring all the posts on this forum, I am starting to put some shape to my honeymoon plans for August. Thank you to everyone who has already helped. Any additional advice is much appreciated.

I have a budget of £5,000 for two and think I may be pushing it for what I have in mind, but here is my plan at the moment:

Flight from UK to Jo'burg - Livingston
2/3 nights at the River Club (as recommended by Rocco - is this enough time?)
3 nights safari - perhaps Jaci's Safari Lodge, Phinda or somewhere in Sabie Sands (It depends on air fares, which I have yet to work out)
Flight to Port Elizabeth
7 nights Garden Route/Winelands staying at Phantom Forest/Plettenberg Park - any other suggestions?
4 nights Cape Town
Return flight to UK

Does this sound feasible on my budget? I know living costs are cheap in SA, but the accommodation I am looking at is not, though I'm reluctant to give up on the luxury as it is my honeymoon.

All thoughts extremely welcome.
