overview

This extravagant 9-day tour combines two of Africa's undisputed holiday highlights: game viewing in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve and beach combing in the Seychelles.

Begin your escape in the legendary Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve on a variety of safari activities: the game viewing here is excellent and you'll have plenty of opportunities to spot all the members of the Big 5, even the elusive leopard, sightings of which are something of a speciality in the Sabi Sands.

Afterwards, fly to the spectacular Seychelles Archipelago for five days at The Banyan Tree on the main island of Mahe. Relax on the resort's white sandy beaches and in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean - your time here can be as busy or as lazy as you like.

Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Travel to the Singita Boulders

Fly from Johannesburg's OR Tambo International Airport to the Singita airstrip in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve where you will be met and transferred to Singita Boulders, one of the region's most luxurious lodges.

Settle in, freshen up, and take stock of your new surroundings. Enjoy an alfresco dinner around the boma fire after an afternoon game drive in this game-rich destination.

Days 2-3

Go game and wildlife viewing

Get an early start this morning as you head out on your first morning game drive and watch the sunrise during a break in your search for the Big 5.

After you have returned to the lodge and have had breakfast, head out with your ranger on a bush walk to get a different perspective of the environment and to do some bird watching, tracking and plant identification.

You can also go on a visit after lunch to a local village for a cultural interaction or enjoy a massage and beauty treatment at the health spa as you wait for your late afternoon/early evening game drive.

Day 4

Travel to Johannesburg

This morning you'll board a charter flight that will take you back to Johannesburg for a night at Fairlawns Boutique Hotel. Relax and unwind after your flight with a treatment at the spa, a swim in the swimming pool or even a workout at the gym.

Enjoy a silver service dinner at the hotel's Terrace Restaurant as you can gaze out over the illuminated city with a glass of fine South African wine.

Day 5

Travel to the Seychelles

Travel by road transfer back to the airport and catch your flight to Mahe in the Seychelles. A private transfer will then take you to The Banyan Tree Seychelles, your dazzling accommodation for the next six nights.
Days 6-8

Experience island paradise

Take advantage of the privacy and seclusion of your beachfront villa and relax in your private Jacuzzi and plunge pool - or get a private massage in your room. Enjoy safe swimming and snorkelling in the warm Indian Ocean and the beautiful white sandy beaches of Intendance Bay. The resort offers a variety of restaurants for you to choose from in the evenings.

On day seven, take a full-day tour of La Digue where you will visit Vallee-de-Mai, the only place in the world where the iconic coco-der-mer nut grows in its natural state. Walk through the forest, listening to the calls of the rare black parrot, before spotting dolphins off Anse Lazio beach. La Digue is also renowned for its smooth copra seeds, impressive granite formations and lusty giant tortoises.
