1st Safari in South Africa & Botswana- Itinerary and Lodging Advice

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are heading to SA in late June for 16 days. We would like to spend 8-10 days on Safari between Sabi Sand, SA and Botswana. Also, while in Botswana, have one night stay around Victoria Falls and spend around 4 days in Cape Town.

In Sabi Sand, we are choosing Mala Mala Rattray's because of its reputation for Game Drives and low passenger count/car. We also love to stay in Mashatu Tented Camps for a couple of nights. In Botswana, we are stuck trying to determine the best lodges to stay at for game viewing and experiencing different ecosystems. Although we plan to be there for around 6 nights, we were thinking 2 nights each in different camps would be too many transfers. We are considering Xigera, Tubu Tree, Mombo, Khwai River and Eagle Island Camp at the moment. Luxury is not a must, but comfort and safety are and of course game viewing and the environment. Amazingly, all lodges have availability. Is 1 night is Victoria Falls and 2 nights each in Mala Mala Rattray's and Mashatu enough? Please give us your suggestions.
