My fiance and I are planning our first every trip (and safari) to South Africa! We are both so excited that our dream vacation is becoming a reality. We were introduced to Londolozi through friends who recently went to Londolozi Pioneer Camp for their honeymoon. Given that our trip will also be a honeymoon, naturally we thought it would be a good fit for us. We have recently learned how expensive Londolozi is and thus have also been presented with the option to stay at Exeter River Lodge. While Exeter River Lodge seems to be just as beautiful, it is also at a very attractive rate.
Given that this is our first trip, which do you recommend? We do appreciate luxury (it is our honeymoon), but we are also looking for a very warm, family-oriented, not compeltly remote experience. We like to be by ourselves but do enjoy the company of others. I am studying to be a veterinarian so we also would love great guides and rangers, but I imagine the game viewing is great at both locations. Overall, I am just really torn. Is the extra money at Londolozi really worth it for us? It is nearly double Exeter.
Also, if there are other camps similar to Londolozi but closer to Exeter in price, please let me know! Someone help!
Thank you so much!
