Which Safari?

Which Safari?

I'm currently planning my honeymoon and have a number of confusing options for Safari. The basic plan is as follows:

Cape Town



Beach (Mozambique)

I'm deliberating over Safari options (both first time safari goers) and was wondering if anyone can offer advice. The options are:

Kapama Karula

Thanda Forest Lodge

Chitwa Chitwa

We want to experience good game but also enjoy the luxury at a reasonable cost.


Kruger National...

Hi there,

Sounds like you have a wonderful honeymoon planned! Is there a reason why you are visiting both Cape Town and Mozambique for beaches?

Further to this - Is there a particular reason why you have chosen these lodges only?

Goodness, sorry about all the questions :-). I understand how confusing and overwhelming it can be to plan a safari, especially for the first time! I hope we can help to get you both sorted :-)

All the best,

Cape town is more for the stunning scenery as opposed to beaches but that's a nice side benefit too. I envisage Cape Town being quite 'busy' whilst Mozambique will be more 'chilled out' secluded beach vibe where we're in privacy.

The lodges are simply ones which we have been recommended and that fit within budget of the whole trip.

Your Safari options are all excellent .... Thanda is very romantic, Karula very hip and Chitwa Chitwa has excellent game viewing .... You can't go wrong with any of them so it may come down to your itinerary and flight costs / convenience . Maybe stay in 3 places vs 4 ... You can say in Cape Town and still explore the Winelands ....depends on how long you're going for .... Which properties are you considering in Moz!

Kind Regards,
