I'm planning a trip to SA this August- it will either be two adults, two adult kids and one 11 year old --or-- two adults, one adult kid and one 11 year old. I make a distinction because if we are a party of 5, the accommodations become more complicated- ie: requiring a triple and a double as opposed to two doubles.
We plan to visit both Sabi Sands and Kwanwde.
At Sabi Sands, we are considering Exeter. River, Leadwood, Dulini or Kirkman's Kamp (which they now run, I understand). Any thoughts? We would like very, very nice but not over-the-top accommodations as well as excellent game viewing.
At Kwanwde, we are looking at Ecca and Main Lodge. Ecca is geared toward kids, but my husband really wants that Out of Africa colonial atmosphere which sounds more like the Main Lodge. Would an 11 year old be terribly out of place at Main Lodge?
Are we going to FREEZE in August?????
Thanks for any help you can offer!
