Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Fly into the Sabi Sands

Your romantic escape into Africa begins in Johannesburg as you fly directly into the exclusive and wildlife-rich Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, set on the edge of the Kruger National Park. You'll be met at the airstrip and transferred to Exeter River Lodge, a luxurious and peaceful safari lodge overlooking the beautiful Sand River. Settle into your romantic suite and get ready for your first exciting game drive.
Days 2-4

Search for Africa's Big 5

Spend the next three days out in the exclusive Sabi Sands Reserve on the hunt for Africa's Big 5 - lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant. The reserve is one of the top wildlife parks in Africa and has a worldwide reputation for delivering amazing and regular leopard sightings.

Exeter River Lodge is wonderfully secluded and offers lovely views over the Sand River, ensuring a scenic start to your African honeymoon. Start out on early morning game drives, return at mid-morning for breakfast and then join your guide for a nature walk or spend a lazy afternoon around the pool before setting out on your afternoon/early evening game drive.

On your return from the evening game drive, experience evenings around the fire enjoying superb South African cuisine and wine and swopping stories with fellow guests. You may also choose to dine privately.

Day 5

Travel to the beautiful Seychelles

Say goodbye to Exeter River Lodge and be transferred to the local airstrip where a charter flight will take you back to Johannesburg. Here you'll catch an international flight to the Seychelles, one of the Indian Ocean's most beautiful archipelagos.

Once on Mahe Island, drive by private road transfer to the stunning Ephelia Resort. Set on one of Mahe's most spectacular beaches, the resort offers a host of fantastic activities, facilities and restaurants, making it an ideal place to spend a few lazy, romantic days.

Days 6-10

Experience a tropical island holiday

For the next few days you'll enjoy Indian Ocean bliss, relaxation and recreation as you choose from the wide range of watersports, activities and facilities on offer at the resort.

There's plenty to do on and in the water such as catamaran sailing, scuba diving and snorkelling day trips, and you can also enjoy swimming, kayaking or wind surfing in the tranquil lagoon. Keep your feet dry with a game of tennis or squash, and don't forget to book a relaxing couples treatment at the Spa de Constance.

Ephelia has five amazing restaurants which serve everything from Asian to French dishes, Italian and Mediterranean cuisine and of course, local Seychellois fare.
