A Taste of Paradise

Summary Of The Route and Costs

Palatial suites, private plunge pools, extraordinary game viewing and deserted beaches of pure white sand that extend for miles lapped by sparkling turquoise seas crisscrossed by local dhows. Does this sound like the sort of holiday you would like?

Situated in the very heart of the 75,000 malaria-free Big 5 Madikwe Game Reserve, Madikwe Hills offers visitors the most amazing South African safari adventure. Explore the wonders of the African bush in state of the art open game vehicles with bucket seats and fold-down armrests ensuring your optimum safety and comfort. Knowledgeable and professional rangers conduct early morning and late afternoon, or evening, game drives in search of Africa's big game and smaller wildlife.

Then, you’ll fly over to Mozambique where you’ll stay in a luxury ‘eco’ boutique retreat. Built entirely by the island’s local community, this stunningly unique resort has become the last word in barefoot escapism. Each villa has its own private deck and pool. Helicopter transfers, Mozambican butler-hosts to look after your every need, dinner plays host to fish and seafood fresh from the ocean, there are a fantastic range of activities and experiences, an African spa to relax in, and all at a community based project where the local islanders benefit as much as you. Azura is truly paradise.
