My partner and I are due to visit the Kruger towards the tail end of October. We have been hunting high a low for lodges and really had our heart set on Londolozi, however they have extremely limited availability over this time, as do the majority of the lodges we have called. Some of the more expensive ones are available in Sabi Sands, however I'm just not prepared to pay their rates as our hearts were always set on Londolozi and don’t feel the cost is worth it for the other lodges. We would prefer to visit Londolozi on another trip and perhaps take a step down in rate.
We have two options currently (a big step down from Londolozi) – Inyati or Naledi. We have stayed at Naledi before and had a great time, however would really love to head somewhere in the Sabi Sands region (leopards!). Is it worth paying the extra for Inyati as opposed to doing a Naledi return?
Any other lodge suggestions are welcome. We had also considered Tanda Tula as another option? We are looking at spending no more than about R5000 pppn.
Sorry for the muddled question – we are just a little confused and disappointed we couldn’t get our first choice. We are planning a 2 day self drive, 2 day lodge trip.
