General SA questions...

Thanks to everyone for a great forum...

We're planning a 2-week trip to SA at the end of August - besides a trip down to Capetown (probably 5-7) days, we'd like to splurge on a private game reserve (ala SIngita or Londolozi), but not sure what to else to do. We'd like to do another safari elsewhere, but ones that is significantly different than the Kruger camps. We considered Botswana, but it seemed so expensive to fly up and down from J-Burg.

Also, is it best to book directly with the camps or go through someone like e-gnu?

Thanks in advance!

I'd suggest staying at Londolozi and then going to Phinda (also a CCAfrica lodge). Londolozi will be dry in late August and you'll see a lot of game. Phinda is much more lush, even in August, and has several different ecosystems which would provide a nice change of pace after Londolozi. They also have amazing game and a variety of excursions to choose from. CCAfrica will also be able to coordinate your air transfers (we flew directly from Londolozi to Phinda).
