Enjoy a 12-day luxury getaway that kicks off with a classic Big 5 safari in a private Kruger reserve before going onto a beach holiday on an idyllic island off the Indian Ocean coast of Mozambique.

Start with four days of game viewing in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, a deservedly famous conservation area bordering the Kruger National Park. You enjoy game drives and guided bush walks in search of the Big 5 and other interesting African animals. Relax between safari activities with a wide range of holistic and rejuvenating spa treatments and exercises for your mind and body.

Spend a night in vibrant Johannesburg before flying to the Mozambican coast where you spend six days enjoying life on the tranquil island of Medjumbe in the glittering Quirimbas Archipelago.

Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1-5

Spot the Big 5 in the Sabi Sands

Arrive at Johannesburg's OR Tambo International Airport and board a flight to luxurious Lion Sands Ivory Lodge in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, an exclusive Big 5 reserve on the border of the famous Kruger National Park.

Settle in and soak up the sights from the thatched viewing deck - you may well spot wildlife at the river below. Alternatively, set out on your first game viewing activity or pamper yourself with holistic treatments and beauty therapies at the in-house spa. 

Days 5-6

Relax in vibrant Johannesburg

After an early breakfast and a final safari activity, you'll board your flight back to Johannesburg. Tonight you'll be staying at Fairlawns Boutique Hotel in the 'The City of Gold' as Johannesburg is known. Relax in opulent style at the hotel or enjoy a night out on the town.

Day 6-12

Soak up the seclusion of Medjumbe

Catch a short flight after breakfast to a tiny sliver of sand marooned in the turquoise sea - the private island of Medjumbe. This spectacular destination offers true barefoot luxury and a host of beach and water activities.

Spend the next few days here soaking up the sun, enjoying delicious, fresh seafood grills and unwinding on deserted beaches. For the avid scuba diver there are 12 phenomenal dive sites nearby but these clear waters are also excellent for snorkelling. 

Take a picnic basket to an uninhabited island for a romantic and secluded lunch and afterwards wander the stunning beaches that encircle the island or lie in a hammock set up in the shallow waters by the resort staff.
