South African Safari & Mauritius

This tour is simply an indication of what is possible - all our tours are fully customised and our travel experts will personally tailor your itinerary based on your preferences, travel dates and budget.

If you’re looking for the perfect blend of into the wild and beach bliss, this is the combination for you. Your journey will take you from an unforgettable safari experience in the Kruger National Park to sipping cocktails on a pearly-white beach in Mauritius. This package is the meeting of two different worlds, giving you the best of both.

Day 1 – 3: Big 5 safari in the Kruger National Park

You’ll hop on a flight to Nelspruit (via Johannesburg), where on arrival you’ll be welcomed and transferred to your game lodge (all-inclusive). This is where your bush adventure begins.

Your lodge is part of a collection that has been built to cater to the needs and pockets of various discerning travellers. Whether you want to saturate yourself in the thick of the bush or recoup your sanity by relaxing in the luxurious surrounds and enjoying delicious cuisine and spa treatments, there is a Thornybush Lodge that is perfect for you.

You'll enjoy 4x4 safari drives to see the Big 5, but also to spot lesser known African animals such as the aardvark, brown hyena and the rarely seen honey badger. Communal dining in the boma at night and the sharing of stories by your engtertaining guides will have you feeling part of this special community in a very short time.

Recommended Accommodation

Thornybush Game Lodge & Waterside Lodge

These family friendly lodges lie in Thornybush Private Game Reserve just outside of the Kruger Park. They are small, intimate and away from the crowds.

Day 4: Stopover in Johannesburg

After a final game drive and bush breakfast, you will be collected and transferred to connect with your flight to Johannesburg. You’ll unwind post-safari before heading to your tropical paradise the following morning.

Day 5 - 9: Beach bliss in Mauritius

Mauritius is a perfect tropical beach destination for both couples on a romantic getaway and and families looking for a relaxing break. Known for its powdery beaches, azure waters and incredible water-based activities as well as a dose of romance and culture, Mauritius soothes the soul. Your resort hotel options are as sophisticated as they are beautiful and whichever one you choose, rest assured that your every need has been anticipated.

Spend sunny days enjoying the beaches, watersports, golf courses, scuba diving or deep sea fishing in this tropical playground. You can choose to keep your toes buried in the soda-white sand with a good book or fill your days with exhilarating action.

The island is extremely safe and, at approximately 40 miles north to south and 28 miles east to west, it is the ideal size to explore. Rent a soft-top jeep and spend a day or two cruising around the markets, shops, towns and tourist sites of this multi-cultural island. Indulge in the freshest seafood and top up your tan while your cares float away.
