Trying to plan last minute South Africa trip.

Jump to last reply

With new SAA sale prices, we are back to trying to plan our first South Africa Safari trip this Sept. instead of putting off until August 2012. Good thing is we were originally planning for this year so I have a bit of information. As many here have so generously helped with, there is still so much to learn and consider.
I think we've decided to take what I consider the easier way to plan. We are now looking at the &Beyond packages. Originally I thought they would be a bit more over the top than we are looking for, but they sure do include a lot with aircraft pick up. We really are not interested in driving ourselves. I think we will save that for a repeat visit. Same with heading to Victoria Falls. Another time.
Anyway, there is a package that offers nights combined at Kirkman's Camp in Sabi Sands and Ngala Private Game Reserve. They have lodges in Sabi Sands, Timbavati, Phinda, etc. I know you all know much better than I.
Any suggestions as to the best for game viewing and seeing different habitats?
I know I can read and read and find something wonderful at each and not as great at each.
We are looking at 10-14 days. No beaches or city visits. Just a couple of parks.
Suggestions and reviews your experience is appreciated. We need to make a decision quickly.
Thanks so much!
