Thank you every body.

Decision time.

We have stayed at Pretorius Kop but never at Mopani.

Might include Shimuwini in those 5 days???/

I would rather stay at Mopani instead of Pretotiuskop. Roads around Mopani will be much quieter and it's further away from a main gate.

Tsendze is one of our favourite camps and stayed there for 12 days at a time. You have a number of routes to choose from and a couple of hides (6 in total within 10 - 80 km) in the area. Letaba, Shingwedzi, Red rocks and Sable hide can easily be reached during a morning drive (within 60 km). It is much warmer up north and Pretoriuskop weather will be more moderate, but less people and OSV's around giving you more opportunity alone at a sighting.

Best routes : Mooiplaas and Tropic of Capricorn, Tsendze loop and Middelvlei, Red rocks, Nshawu.

Not so good ones: Shongololo loop (too long with few game except a few angry elephants) and Stapelkop dam.

Hi RP I did not do one but found this link for Mopani. A pack of wild dogs was recently released near Shingwedzi which is not too far away. They pack was seen on a hunt killing two antelope nearly at the same time.
