Help! Comments on any hotels for our honeymoon safari?

We are going on safari honeymoon in early May and are booked at the following places, does anyone have any comments on whether these are worthwhile or not?

Cape Grace - Capetown
La Couronne - Wineland
Singita and Phinda Viel lodge (has anyone been to this Phinda lodge)
Chobe Chilwero - Botswana (was thinking of switching to Stanley's camp?)
Stanley & Livingstone - Victoria Falls
Oberoi - Mauritius.

Comments would be appreciated!

We've stayed at La Couronne and you can see our review on www.i-escape.com. We've also stayed at Phinda and Singita but our reviews aren't on the site yet - all are great.

My wife and I went to Phinda in 2000 and stayed at Forest and Rock lodges. Both were out of this world. The staff were great, very knowledgeable and would always do as much as possible to accommadate our whims! We travelled with Classic Connections and prior to Phinda went to Cleopatra lodge in the Drackensberg's north of Durban, which for a couple of days was magical. After these we went to Mauritus - after the service etc. we had received in SA this was a big let down. If you need anything more specific on Phinda please mail me - I'd go again tomorrow.
