Default Chief's Camp/Lion Sands River Lodge

We are planning a safari vacation end of May early June. We are thinking of
spending three nights in Kruger at Lion Sands(River Lodge or Ivory Lodge?)
and three nights at Chief's Camp in Botswana. All opinions would be
appreciated.

Why two camps so far away from each other? I guess you do know they have
a BIG (about 1000km) distance between them. Even when flying in, you
will loose a lot of time travelling the distance.

Hi Richard and Barbara

You may have made your plans by now but you need to consider the
amount of time you will be transferring between Botswana and South
Africa. As you will probably fly from where you live to Jo'burg then
connect to Hoedspruit (2 hours including pre-flight waiting) and
vehicle transfer to Lion Sands (1 hr) plus the same coming back total 6 hours. You will probably have to overnight near the airport
as Air Botswana flights leave at inconvenient times (10 hours). Air
transfer times in Botswana to the camps are better - around 30 to 45
minutes. Total including waiting time about 4 hours each way. Total
connecting time on safari about 24 hours!

Keep it simple and do Botswana properly, or the Kruger, but avoid
doing both unless you have time to burn!
