Hi, I have trawled the forum pages for the last few days and am still pretty confused as to which lodge we should choose for our honeymoon next year! Would love your help. Some of the contributors on this forum have been incredible so would love to use some of your advice! I have a few questions:
1) We have spoken to a travel agent who has proposed Lion Sands River Lodge or Kirkmans. Lion Sands is quite a bit more expensive. Do you think the extra expense (£1000) is worth it? We do like luxury but we are going to Mauritius after which should have plenty of luxury so our number one preference is for a quality lodge with great rangers and great game viewing. (Although luxury would be a bonus!)
2) We are coming in the first week of May next year. Is there any lodge/area of Sabi Sands that is better at that time of year?
3) We were originally recommended the Kwa Madwala Game reserve. We liked the idea of it being malaria free but after reading this forum most people recommend Sabi Sands for the real experience. Is the Sabi Sands far superior for game viewing? Is Malaria pretty low risk in May in Sabi Sands?
4) If you were a honeymoon couple with a mid range budget in May which lodge would you choose in Sabi Sands? (we will be there four nights)
Thanks so much in advance for all your advice. Really looking forward to see what people's views are.
