I'm planning a trip to the Kruger area for May and want to drive from Jo'berg. Is it too much (too hectic) to do:
2 nights Berg en Dal
2 nights Lower Sabie
2 nights Arathusa
I want to end this portion of the trip with 2 nights preferably at Arathusa (or some other Sabi Sands reserve if there is no room at Arathusa). I had originally thought 3 nights at Lower Sabie, but it seems like such a far way to go from Jo'berg to Lower Sabie in one day. I guess I could stay a night in Nelspruit, but then wouldn't it be nicer to stay that night at Berg en Dal? And, if I'm going to stay at Berg en Dal, isn't it less rushed to stay there 2 nights? Which means I end up with 6 nights altogether ... is this too much?
I plan to drive back to Jo'berg after Sabi Sands via the Panorama Route.
Any suggestions on how to plan this? I guess a simpler way of asking my question is: I want to go from Jo'berg to Kruger area and stay a few nights in a rest camp followed by a few nights in a private reserve and come back via the Panorama Route - what is the best itinerary to accomplish this?
