Tented camping in Kruger National Park

My husband and I are looking to do a 2 night safari in Kruger in October of 2009 and are considering the Honeyguide Mantobeni Tented camp. Everything about it looks wonderful and the reviews seem to be good but I just wanted to know if anyone had any other recommendations for other tented camps in/around Kruger to compare this to? We are staying in Botswana at a tented camp prior to this for 3 nights and would really like to be in a "tent" as opposed to a suite. Any advice would be helpful!

You can also seriously consider Ngala Tented Safari Camp, which is beautiful!

Hi! Great news that you're planning on visiting our country! Honeyguide Mantobeni is a great camp, but just remember that they are not permitted to drive off road when doing game drives. All game viewing vehicles have to stay on the roads, meaning that your game viewing will be restricted to animals viewed on, or just next to, the road. At lodges like Ngala Tented Camp, which is in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve, the game viewing vehicles are permitted to drive off road when following high profile animals like the big 5, cheetah & wild dogs, which of course gives a much more exciting wildlife experience!

Most of the camps within the Kruger National Park have tented accomodation as well as their huts / cottages, are well-equiped and value for money.

See link below for Letaba camp's possibilities - (other camps on same site.)
