Game Viewing Area to Combine w/ Sabi Sands?

Hi all! On our S.A. trip we are planning three nights in Sabi Sands and would like to spend two nights in a different area to get diverse wildlife viewing and scenery. Originally we were thinking of Phinda, but it would mean a lot of time in the car (the air transfer is way too expensive from what we are told) and we thought our time would be better spent exploring. Some I had been considering are:

Entabeni (or somewhere else in Waterburg region)

We will be driving from Johan to Sabi Sands ourselves so can stop on the way there or back or detour. We were planning to spend a night in one of the small towns on the way so we can explore. We will fly from Johan down to Durbin and spend a few days on the beach then fly to Port Elizabeth or George and drive Garden route to Cape Town. Trip is in late October.

Open to all other ideas!

Isn't Phinda clsoer to Durban, or else there is Ndumo or St.Lucia. Maybe not great game destinations, but beautiful and awesome for birds. Madikwe is a three hour drive from Joburg airport, which is six in the other direction from SSGR.

After you arrive in Durban, you can drive to Phinda in a few hours (less than three, I think), or you can visit Addo, which is near Port Elizabeth.
