Escape to another world on this 9 night itinerary. Experience the Africa of the great safari era, when blazing sunsets melted into lantern lit romance and service was an effortless whisper. Then immerse yourself in a private tropical island sanctuary where exotic beauty takes centre stage.
Sabi Sabi’s Selati Camp is an award-winning safari lodge in the exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Selati is furnished with a historic railway theme and colonial charm and is meticulously created as an authentic home in the bush, and offers the perfect accommodation for anyone looking for a romantic luxury safari getaway. Under the spectacular canopy of the Southern night sky the camp is romantically lit by the gentle flicker of oil lamps and lanterns, and the warm glow of fires.
Morning and afternoon game drives take you deep into the African bush in search of the wildlife, and a short morning walking safari after breakfast with your ranger is also an option.
After a night in Johannesburg, fly across to Seychelles for 5 nights on the island of Mahe. Enjoy the untouched and unspoiled beauty of Seychelles at Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa. With a legacy as one of Mahe's most historic hotels and a fascinating connection to James Bond author Ian Fleming, the Hilton Northolme Resort & Spa on the island’s northwest coast comprises 40 tree-house style villas overlooking Beau Vallon Bay and the distant islands of Silhouette and North.
