I just came across this excellent report, but better late than never. I’ve entertained the idea of visiting a series of South Africa’s lesser known parks and reserves, and this certainly steels my resolve to do so. 
 

I have great memories of Phinda and the reserves adjacent to Kruger from our first two safaris. &Beyond consistently offers a top-quality product. It is easy, as you say, to “bash” those types of safari experiences, but they also occupy an important niche in the marketplace by giving a sense of assurance to first-timers who might have some trepidation and not otherwise feel secure about a trip to Africa.  Not infrequently, those first-timers then become enamored, returning again and again to explore other areas that are more off the beaten path, thus giving added support to conservation efforts across the continent. Ask me how I know.....:)

 

Thanks for showing that these places can still have something worthwhile to offer to even veterans like you.  And, as so many have already mentioned, wonderful photography.

I've enjoyed your trip report very  much, packed with historical facts. 

The photos are exceptional and atmospheric. 

Well done and many thanks, @Safaridude.

I get a lot of joy from traveling companions (guide or not) seeing things for the first time.

 

Fair enough. Good travelling companions are to be treasured

Thanks @Safaridude for a great report that introduced me to places that I have never heard of, but now want to go to.  Also fabulous photography - that rim lit male lion, just wow!

Neat TR @Safaridude, I've been to most of the places you visited but some of them many years past. You make them all look terrific and bring back many memories.
