My son and his fiancee are getting married in April 2008 and I have, maybe foolishly?, promised to organise, and pay for, their honeymoon in South Africa as their wedding present.
They want to spend 5 - 6 days in/around Capetown and 5 - 6 days in the bush, preferably in a Big 5 area.
My difficulty is that, although I can easily arrange a great time for them in Capetown, at a reasonable cost, I cannot afford to pay for them to go to an 'upmarket' lodge in a Big 5 area (such as Djuma or Nkorho) and they don't want to have to self-drive in Kruger, or to go self-catering, as they have never been to Africa without me there to organise them before.
I have offered to personally guide them in Kruger or elsewhere but for some reason they do not appear to want 'mummy' on their honeymoon...... I cannot think why?
If anyone has any suggestions for a 5 - 6 day fully-catered trip, in South or Southern Africa, including game drives, without the Mother-in-law in charge (and which the Mother-in-law can afford to pay for) at any Big 5 reserve in Southern Africa, I would appreciate your advice and suggestions.
This can involve staying in a camp, lodge or even camping - the main thing is that my son and (future) daugher-in-law have a great experience and develop the love for Africa, the animals and the people who live there, that I have.
Please PVT me if you have any ideas or suggestions
