My husband and I are traveling to Africa for the fist time in October/November of this year (2011). We are staying in Cape Town for 4 nights, Franschhoek for 2 nights, and then looking to go on safari for 4 nights. We are considering either staying in SA and going to Sabi Sand/Ngala (2 nights each) or flying up to Botswana and doing 1 night in Victoria Falls and 3 nights in Chobe. We have never been on safari, and unfortuantely do not have any more time to spend than 4 nights total for our safari potion.
If money is not an issue, what would you recommend for best overall experience? We are looking for the best combination of game viewing (Big 5+) and luxury accomodations... visiting in October/November.
