I have done exactly the same direction several times. South Kaibab is a bit steeper but shorter so for the way down it is best. On the way up though the more gradual Bright Angel is better and has water at Indian Gardens. Bonus fact, just before Indian Gardens on the way up and just after the creek crossing you can head over to a pool of water for a refreshing dip.
if you're not hiking you should be skiing
