Incredibly romantic and luxurious, this Big 5 safari to South Africa’s Kruger National Park and Zimbabwe’s undiscovered Malilangwe region offers you the African journey or honeymoon of a lifetime. Not only is there fine dining and sumptuous settings throughout, but your safari experience promises to be equally exclusive and personalised.

Begin in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve in the Kruger, which is legendary for its excellent leopard sightings as well as regular encounters with other members of the Big 5. An overnight stay in Johannesburg allows you to explore the ‘City of Gold’ or spend a quiet night in, and dine at the hotel’s Chaîne des Rôtisseurs restaurant. The final leg takes you to a little-explored region of Zimbabwe’s vast wilderness, Malilangwe Game Reserve, where you will be mesmerized by warm hospitality, untouched landscapes and thrilling big game encounters.

Throughout your 9-day sojourn, you will stay at exquisite accommodation and be hosted by some of the best names in safari (and you an even play golf!). Your hotel in Joburg is the that Nelson Mandela lived in when he was writing his memoirs, and all transfers will be air, allowing you to dedicate more time to game viewing.

Day to day

Your tour begins at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg where you will fly to the Singita Airstrip via a shared light aircraft. On landing, you will be greeted with a warm welcome and transferred to the immaculate Singita Ebony Lodge – your base for the next three nights.

Ebony Lodge is located in Sabi Sands Game Reserve, which is one of the best private wildlife reserves in the greater Kruger region. Sabi Sands is the birthplace of the luxury safari, and here you are guaranteed no-crowds game viewing, exceptional service and unrivalled pampering. It is not uncommon to spot the Big 5 all in one day, and the reserve is also home to a rich variety of wildlife including hyena, hippo, cheetah, wild dog and plenty of antelope.

Early mornings are reserved for dawn safaris – when animals are at their most active – and romantic picnic breakfasts at scenic locations. Spend the hottest part of the day relaxing at your private plunge pool, getting a massage or hydrotherapy at the beautiful spa, or browsing the boutique and art gallery. Relaxed and rejuvenated, you head out on 4×4 in the cool of the afternoon, or later in the evening as nocturnal wildlife come out of hiding. Back at the lodge, romantic candlelit dinners await your return in the dramatic gold-and-black African-inspired dining room.
