Hi all, thanks in advance for any help.
I recently had a life-changing experience in the Sabi Sands and had a great stay at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge and Earth Lodge. It was so fantastic that I am planning a return trip, this time without my spouse for various logistical reasons.
Like my last trip, the main focus will be photography, and I am considering hiring a private vehicle for this purpose.
I am wondering what people's opinions are about various lodges. We had a lovely time at Earth Lodge but frankly for a solo traveller is not worth the expense. My main focus will be trying to get the best rangers, the best sightings for photography, and not feeling too out of place in the dining room! Cost is a secondary consideration though super luxury is not essential.
I was thinking about returning to Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, or should I go to Londolozi or Mala Mala? I must admit, I feel a bit perturbed that Mala Mala does not use trackers. I heard that this is because they stay with the animals/follow them all day and night, is this true??
Thank you to everyone who reads this and replies. I would be most grateful to hear from Dave or Tanya too, if you have the time and an opinion!
