In June 2017 we (2 parents, 15 & 17 year olds) are going to Africa for the 1st time. We have arranged to stay at Zulu Nyala (Hluhluwe, SA) for 6 nights through our church.
I’m looking for a place(s) to visit for 3-5 nights, which will provide another kind of African experience. I’ve looked at Kruger, Chobe, Sabi Sabi, and can’t decide which would be the most interesting pairing (different landscape, animals, activities) taking into account travel distance, transportation cost, and lodging/safari expense.
I'm not looking for extreme luxury, but want a nice place that doesn't have a crowded/tourist feeling. We're healthy & active. We’re not interested in visiting Capetown or another city. We want to focus on places that can only be found in Africa.
I appreciate any suggestions or advice. Thanks in advance or your time & guidance.
