Me and my wife are in the early phase of planning our first trip to SA. We plan to visit late Jan - early Feb 2014. We would like to spend 2-3 nights in Lower Sabie rest camp. However, with the subsequent Kruger floods in two consecutive years (2012 and 2013) in January - we are apprehensive about visiting Kruger in Jan. Should we plan for a different time? We also want to visit the Garden Route and Cape Town and late Jan - early Feb seems to be the best time for the Cape. Should we then just focus on the Cape and plan for a different time for Kruger visit?
Any information will be helpful!
