Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive at Madikwe Private Game Reserve

Touch down at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg where a representative will meet and escort you to your short connecting flight to Madikwe Private Game Reserve, located at the edge of the Kalahari in South Africa's North West Province.

Arrive and settle in at Madikwe Safari Lodge, a wonderfully private safari camp. This spacious, thatched lodge, set at the heart of the reserve, incorporates natural elements from the surrounding environment into its luxurious rooms.

Days 2-4

Search for the Big 5 in style

Enjoy early morning game drives with your personal guide and explore this stunning malaria-free Big 5 game reserve. Explore open grasslands, acacia woodlands and rugged mountain ranges and a special bush breakfast before arriving back at camp to relax around the pool during the heat of the day.

At mid-afternoon you'll be treated to a sumptuous high tea before heading out again in the late afternoon for another game drive and sundowner drinks. And as dusk falls, your guide will turn on the spotlight to reveal some of Madikwe's nocturnal creatures as you head back to camp.

Return to a delicious outdoor dinner around the open fire and enjoy some fine South African wines and exceptional African-style cuisine under the stars.

Day 5

Arrive in Mauritius

Leave Madikwe behind and fly back to Johannesburg where you'll depart OR Tambo International for Mauritius. On arrival you'll be met and transferred to Le Prince Maurice, located on 60 hectares of unspoilt land on the east coast of Mauritius. This paradise will be your home for the next seven nights.
Days 6-11

Indulge in island life

Set on an isolated peninsula and surrounded by sandy beaches, tropical vegetation and the warm Indian Ocean, you'll not only experience luxury living at Le Prince, but also incredible surroundings and many ways to kick back and relax.

Set off into the clear waters as you waterski, windsurf, kayak or go on an exciting Hobie cat sailing expedition. Explore the abundant marine life of these tropical waters on a snorkelling trip, relax on a lounger next to the infinity pool or explore the lagoon on a paddle boat.

You can also spend quality time relaxing in the Jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath or thermal swimming pool or you may want to visit the spa for a rejuvenating massage or Geurlaine treatment.

Evenings at Le Prince Maurice offer an equally special experience, not least because of the romantic atmosphere at the a la carte L'Archipel restaurant. For an even more romantic evening, visit Le Barachois - a unique floating restaurant with delicious grills, wines, seafood and Mauritian delicacies. End the evening off with a quiet, barefoot walk on the beach.

Day 12

Say goodbye to paradise

Today you'll head back to Mauritius Airport where you'll catch your international flight home, bringing your holiday to an end.
