For 11 blissful days, you will be cocooned in luxury in two of Africa’s most inspiring landscapes: the classic Big 5 country of acacia-dotted golden plains and the palm-fringed turquoise waters of an untouched tropical island.
Begin your holiday in a luxurious tented getaway in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, which shares an unfenced border with the world-famous Kruger National Park, the animals roaming freely between them (if your luck is in, you may spot the otherworldly white lions of Timbavati, which have snowy coats and mesmerising blue eyes). After days of inspiring dawn and dusk game drives, set off the lush tropical forests of the quaint village of Chamerel on the western shore Mauritius. Spend your days cycling to local markets and relishing soothing massages before heading north, with a visit to the incredible Coloured Earth sand dunes. At Grand Baie, lounge under the coconut palms when you are not playing golf, sailing or snorkelling in warm, clear waters.
Perfect as a bush-beach honeymoon or a family vacation where there is ‘something for everyone’, this hassle-free holiday encompasses some of the highlights that southern Africa has to offer.
