Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Flying to Timbavati Game Reserve

Start your family holiday with a flight from Johannesburg to Hoedspruit Airport, gateway to the famous Kruger National Park. Transfer on arrival to the family-friendly Ngala Safari Lodge in the Timbavati Game Reserve, a private conservation area adjoining Kruger.

You have time to settle in and head out on a late afternoon game drive before returning to camp for supper. Finish off the day around the campfire and plan your next few days.

Days 2-4

Exploring the Timbavati

Spend the next three days exploring the ever-rewarding Timbavati Game Reserve on early morning, late afternoon and early evening game drives. There is a fantastic variety of animals and birds in the reserve and Big 5 sightings are commonplace.

You could take off after breakfast on an exciting bush walk with a ranger and tracker. These walks offer a different perspective of the environment and you will learn a great deal about topics like tracking and traditional uses of plants, while the bird watching is excellent.

Return to the lodge after your evening game drive for a delicious 3-course dinner. Later that night, relax in the lounge and watch nocturnal animals at the lodge's two waterholes.

Ngala is a perfect place for families - each child receives a fun activity pack on arrival and babysitting services are also available.

Day 5

Make your way to Mauritus

Begin your day with a final game drive before transferring to the airport for a flight to Johannesburg and then on to Mauritius. There will be a representative to meet you at the airport and transfer you seamlessly to Belle Mare Plage resort.
