Madikwe versus Kruger?

Can someone tell me the what the primary differences between these SA Parks are in terms of weather, animals, lodges etc?

I guess my impression is that Kruger (especially Sabi Sands) is teeming with people and lodges while Madikwe doesn't get the same attention but the same type of animals and great game viewing.

True?

I have been at Mala Mala and Djuma in Sabi Sands and Jaci's Camp in Madikwe. I wouldn't say that Sabi Sands is "teeming" with people but my feeling is that Jaci's goes the extra mile with much more friendly rangers and more personal service for less money. In Madikwe, you chances of seeing a leopard are less than in Sabi but your chances of seeing the endangered wild dog is about 100% I vote for the dog, who I find more interesting to watch. Also Madikwe is malaria free, if that is a concern. I would vote for Jaci's, then Djuma and Mala Mala a distant third unless you are a leopard fanatic.

Ask more questions if you like!
