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.

Days 6-9

Relax on white sandy beaches

Experience five days of rest and relaxation at Belle Mare Plage, a lovely resort set on the east coast of Mauritius - an idyllic location to spend the rest of your holiday.

There is so much to do at this family-friendly resort, which has a complimentary Kids' Club and a wide range of activities and sports to choose from. Belle Mare Plage is set in tropical gardens overlooking a long sandy beach. Enclosed by a coral reef, the waters of the resort are perfect for swimming and snorkelling, and are ideal for children. Cool off in one of the four swimming pools or take advantage of a wide range of watersports such as scuba diving, windsurfing, or water-skiing.

Land-based activities are available too: hire a bicycle to explore the island or play a round of golf at either of the first-class Legend and Links golf courses. And while you and your partner enjoy a romantic meal or a relaxing couples spa treatment, your children will be well looked after by the Kakoo Kid's Club. Dine in style in the evening while being entertained by local dancers.

Day 10

Return to Johannesburg

Transfer to the airport after breakfast for your flight back to Johannesburg. Your tour ends upon arrival in the City of Gold.
