Hi everyone! My friend and I are planning a 3 to 4 day trip to Kruger at the beginning of September. We are planning on spending 2 or 3 days in the park at a restcamp (hopefully Lower Sabie) and then 1 or 2 days at a private reserve.
I have read that the private reserves are able to provide a little better game viewing as they can go off the road. This is the reason for a brief stay and safari at a reserve outside of Kruger.
My question is what private reserves near Kruger would you recommend? We are on a fairly tight budget, so we don't need a lot of bells and whistles. Also, we would like to enter the park at one of the central or southern gates, so probably a reserve towards the lower half of Kruger would work best.
Thanks for any help!
