We have planned a trip to Kruger NP in September and will be there for 7 nights. In spite of reading hundreds of threads here, i'm still a bit confused as to my trip breakup. Here's the accommodation i've already booked (but i can change it all of course ... as i have done it on phone based on the excellent suggestions here. I can now change it online without having to pay anything extra).
(we're very interested in birding).
Day 1-4 - Satara (a perimeter bungalow)
Day 5 - Skukuza
Day 6-7 Lower Sabie.
Firstly of course I want to know if this planning is correct. Secondly, should I reduce one day in Satara & add it in Skukuza? Or should I make it 2 days in Olifants / Letaba / Mopani & 2 in Satara instead of all 4 there (though the first night, we'll be reaching there quite late as we're driving straight from Jo'burg).
And lastly, if it gets available, should i skip Skukuza entirely and just stay the last 3 nights in Lower Sabie instead?
Or any other suggestion?
oops and one more thing: how cold will it be out there in the beginning of september? being from Mumbai, we're used to a constant 26-30C throughout the year ...
Thanks in advance.
