Big 5 Safari and Tropical Island Honeymoon

Summary Of The Route and Costs

This 7 night honeymoon packs romance, excitement and adventure into a trip of a lifetime. Combine a 3 night safari in Kruger's exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve, where for one night you sleep under the stars, followed by 4 nights on the magical Mozambiquan island of Bazarato, which you reach by helicopter.

Lion Sands River Lodge is where safari dreams are made. Set along the banks of the Sabie River, exclusive accommodation, intuitive service, good food and fine wine all come together to promise a safari in style. Head out at dawn and dusk to find Africa's Big Five, and many smaller but not less fascinating creatures of the bush. With your senses attuned to the sounds, scents and movements surrounding you, this experience captures the very essence of being on safari.

On your second night, you are taken to your romantic sleep out under the stars, where you are greeted by a gourmet picnic, illuminated by lanterns. As the day draws to a close, snuggle up together in a deliciously decadent bed under a heavy duvet with the stars above you.

A short flight to Vilanculos and you hop on a helicopter for a birds eye transfer over the glistening blue ocean to Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort & Spa. Stay in a luxurious villa just steps from the white sand beach and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Explore the waters through scuba diving and snorkelling - with a myriad coral species, thousands of tropical fish, dolphins, whales and sea turtles there is plenty to enjoy. Or just relax around the swimming pool or indulge in a couples spa treatment.
