Best Honeymoon SA lodge under $1,500 per night

Hi,

I'm planning a honeymoon trip to SA next October. We plan to go to cape town for 3 nights, safari for 3 nights and Mauritius for 1 week. I'm having trouble deciding on a safari lodge given the high costs involved. Since it's our honeymoon, were most interested in great service, rooms and food. Our budget is $1,500 per night (eg $750 pp). What do you recommend? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike

I just got back from Inyati and it was fantastic. Highly recommend it.

If your schedule permits, I would recommend one of the AndBeyond lodges in Sabi Sand - here's my video of Dulini - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBBIpG4bQfc (It doesn't show it, but it has its own small pool) There are just 6 suites there - which are really separate little houses. One step up would be Leadwood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41kZGk26VXA. Again, little luxury houses with a private pool, and only 4 of them. Both of these are Low season thru Oct 10 - and jump to High season Oct 11! And, they offer a free 4th night if you pay for 3. Here's my Inyati video - with the best suite shown near the end: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pSDyu2eE5U.

I agree with Dave - the pay 3, stay 4 offer on the andBeyond lodges is an excellent deal and their lodges are superb. Other than the Exeter lodges, you could also consider Kirkmans Kamp or the Ngala lodges (all from andBeyond).

Just my luck...I'd arrive October 11, which sounds like the first day of their high season. An agent recommended Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp or Lion Sands River Lodge?
