If your prime focus is a safari then Kenya is the better choice over South Africa. This is because Kenya has a more wild safari feel than South Africa. South Africa’s Kruger National Park is tarmac road whereas in kenya no park is tarmac.If however you want to experience more than wildlife then South Africa has a lot to offer.
South Africa has better lodges not to say that Kenya doesn’t but South Africa has lodges to meet almost every budget. In Kenya you are either going budget, mid range or luxury and you may not have a wide range in between those option.
South Africa is known for having a high crime rate from armed robbery, rape, carjacking, mugging and smash and grab attacks. Even so visitors and tourist a like visiting South Africa who stick to the main tourist areas and avoid local townships should be just fine. Kenya on the other hand is relatively safe and one should excersise the usual caution when traveling.
