We are booked to visit KNP in September for two nights.
As this is our first visit we are very excited and have decided on Sabi Sands.
We are a family of three adults. I am traveling with my elderly parents.
As i am looking for lodges i realize the really luxurious ones are too expensive and completely out of budget.
Since i have elderly parents traveling, i would want to make it a mix of wildlife and luxury, so i have been trying to strike a balance.
I have three options.
1) Stretch the budget and take a mid tier lodge.
Any info on which mid tier lodge has been renovated recently and offers a good balance of food, luxury and wildlife viewing?
2) Stay in a good hotel in Hazyview/Outside Sabi sands and Game drive in Sabi sands?
Is this possible/advisable? Traversing rights? Any names of safari companies to look for this option?
3) Give up on Sabi Sands and choose slightly luxurious lodge at Timbavati/or any other reserve that you all would suggest?
Any suggestions to make this a better trip for the parents is most appreciated.
