South Africa/Safari help

Hi everyone!

A friend and I are traveling to South Africa from NY in mid-September. We have about 8 days (exclusive of travel time) to spare at this point. I'll have some extra days afterwards myself to travel, but I'm concentrating on those 8 days right now.

We would like to spend part of them doing some sort of Safari, but do not want to spend too much money (definitely under $200, but closer to $100 per night, per person would be preferable).

Any suggestions? We are looking for something in the 3 day/2 night range...

Thanks everyone!

Hi David,

Try Nkorho Bush Lodge-friends of mine that "live" in SA were very pleased. Apparently this couple owns it and they give lots of personal attention-it is situated in the Sabi Sands Private game reserve,here is the site:;e-mail:

Another one where I was taken to & it was most pleasant was Idube-you can e-mail a Sally Kernick at [email protected]
but it may be more expensive. But Nkorho is supposed to be delightful. There are lots of them in Kruger Park that we enjoyed as well.
We also went to Sabi Sabi and all felt that we had just as good a time at Idube
I also found taking travellers cheques a great help-I had never taken TC before and usually just take cash & a credit card but I got the "best" rate for TC-better than cash. I'm sure others will help
