Depends entirely on the budget you have in mind and the time of year you plan to travel. Great "winter specials" available at some lodges betweent May - September.

Flights are about £700 (but vary with season). So that leaves £800 for 3 nights, which should get you a good selection.

Are you going all the way just for the 3 nights??

What time of year?

And whoever your agent is MUST make clear to the various lodges that this is a group booking. Rates go down when you show up to talk about 20+ guests at once. FYI, there are numerous camps that don't have that much space for what you need.. roughly equivalent accommodations for everyone (except YOU! hahaha..)

Inyati Game Lodge has 11 ensuite chalets so if your group are prepared to share rooms then they would have enough accommodation for a group of 20. Excellent Lodge, fabulous setting on the Sand River with very good game viewing. Dont know when you want to travel but they have a stay for 3 nights, pay for 2 night special available until the end of March 2010.

If each member in the group needs sole occupancy then you would need to look at somewhere like Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge

Inyati - yes.. a favorite of mine as well.. I have clients spending 4 nights there starting Monday... Here's a video of just one morning game drive I did there - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2JKupNUEQ0 And here's the camp video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pSDyu2eE5U Note, at the end of it, the more luxurious suite is one of the Executive Chalets..

Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge is highly recommended for groups. Beautiful lodge, excellent bar, beautiful spa, great food & service and excellent game viewing.
