Holiday Title: Sabi Sands Safari and Seychelles

Passengers: 2 Adults

Day 1

Arrive into Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport. Clear Customs & Immigration and collect your luggage, then make your way into the Arrivals Hall, where you will be met by a representative from FedAir. You will then be transferred to the private FedAir departure lounge, where you can relax before boarding your flight across to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Please note that there is a baggage restriction of 20 kg per person, and you have to have a 'soft' bag (for easy storage in the plane). As you are returning by FedAir, you can leave any excess baggage safely with FedAir, which you can then pick up when you return.

FedAir (Light Aircraft): Fly from Johannesburg OR Tambo (JNB) departing at 10:30 to Sabi Sand North Airstrip, arriving at 12:00

Chitwa Chitwa is highly acclaimed for its excellent game viewing, and during your stay here, morning and afternoon game drives with your highly qualified guide and Shangaan tracker will ensure an unforgettable African safari by enriching the safari experience with their profound knowledge regarding this animal kingdom and its complex habitat. Guests are treated to spell-binding sightings of the abundant wildlife and leave with affectionate memories of the very best of the African bush.


Day 4

After you return from your morning game drive, you will have time to enjoy breakfast at the lodge before you are transferred back to the airstrip.

FedAir (Light Aircraft): Fly from Sabi Sand North Airstrip departing at 12:30 to Johannesburg OR Tambo (JNB), arriving at 15:00

You will be transferred to the InterContinental where you can relax for the rest of the day.


Day 5

Cross the road to the International Departure Terminal and check in for your flight to Seychelles. Passengers are advised to check in at least 2.5 hours prior to the flight departure.

Air Seychelles HM60 (Economy Class): Fly from O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) departing at 13:50 to Seychelles International Airport (SEZ), arriving at 20:45

Go through Immigration, collect your luggage and clear Customs, then make your way into the Arrivals Hall to the Welcome Kiosk of our representative in Seychelles. Here, you will be welcomed to the island and then transferred to your hotel.

The Kempinski Seychelles Resort is perfectly situated just 30 minutes from the international airport on Mahe - the largest island in the Seychelles. The white sandy beach is enticing and the crystal clear water, vivid species of fish and multi-coloured corals makes this the perfect diving location, or the Olympic-length swimming pool offers the chance to relax by the pool with light refreshments as you unwind and simply let the island's slow pace soothe your soul through the day.


Day 10

You will need to check out of your room this morning but you can remain at the hotel and use all the facilities until you are collected for your transfer back to the airport. Alternatively, if you have an evening flight, the hotel may be able to arrange a late check out for you (additional cost and payable directly to the hotel) subject to the availability of the room.

Kempinski Seychelles Resort

Mahe: 5 Nights

Kempinski Seychelles Resort is an indulgent retreat that captures the spirit of the Seychelles. Located on the exclusive south end of Mahe directly on the famous Baie Lazare, the resort is a mere 30 minutes from the international airport and only 40 minutes from the capital Victoria. Discover a world of exceptional experiences, from tranquil beachside luxury to soothing nature-based leisure activities and enjoy a holiday that complements your every desire.

The resort is located on an 800m stretch of remarkably beautiful beach. Sun loungers are discreetly positioned between palm trees along the length of the beach, creating a remarkable sense of privacy. Despite being positioned on a beautifully landscaped 64 hectare property, the resort has been laid out in such a way that guests are never very far away from the water.

The temperature is warm enough to swim all year round, but, if ever you tire of swimming or snorkelling in the crystal-clear Indian Ocean, there is an Olympic-length swimming pool, where guests can cool off or burn some energy swimming laps. There is even a children's paddling pool at the Kids Club, so that no guest is left out of the aquatic fun.

The south of Mahe has some of the most beautiful and diverse dive sites in the Seychelles. The resort's 5* PADI dive centre at the resort is able to cater for divers of all experience levels - from seasoned dive masters to absolute beginners who are eager to experience the magic of scuba diving for the very first time. They also offer various PADI courses for guests that are interested in advancing their scuba skills during their stay.

Glass bottom boat excursions, surfing, and kayaking excursions can be booked at the Watersports Pavillion for fun on the water rather than in the water.

The Kempinski Spa offers a range of treatments and also has a fully equipped fitness centre. The resort also has tennis and volleyball courts, a casino and bike hire.

Elegantly appointed Hill View, Beachside and Sea View rooms promote a feeling of tranquility and bliss. All rooms are decorated in warm, earthy tones and are equipped with modern amenities. 

Diverse flavours capture the cultural mix of the Seychelles and you can experience this at the various bars and restaurants found within the resort. Private dining options are also available.

Nights: 5 Nights
Adults: 2 Children: 0
Room: 1 x Sea View Room (Early Bird 30% Benefit offer applied)

Important Travel Information For South Africa

Passport, Visa and Entry Requirements

CURRENT ENTRY RULES IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - Updated 12 November 2020: International borders into South Africa reopened on 12 November 2020. International air travel is currently restricted to Johannesburg's OR Tambo International Airport, Durban's King Shaka International Airport and Cape Town International Airport. All land borders are fully operational. Tourists are now permitted from all countries.

On arrival, travellers need to present a negative PCR COVID-19 test result (paper copy). The test must have taken place no more than 72 hours before your departure. We strongly advise taking multiple copies of the test with you. It is also possible to transit South Africa and travel onto another country but you must still show a paper copy of your negative Covid-19 test. If you cannot produce a negative COVID-19 test, you may be required to quarantine in a government-appointed quarantine facility for 10 days, at your own cost. Travellers will also be asked to download the COVID Alert South Africa Mobile App. You will need to provide proof of accommodation upon arrival in case you need to self-isolate during your trip.

Screening processes have been introduced at all major ports of entry, including airports, for arrivals, departures and transit passengers. Additional screening may include temperature measurements and check on recent travel to affected areas.

It is expected that these rules will be lifted and that the entry requirements will revert to normal as soon as the government of South Africa deems it safe to do so.

Normally, holders of the following passports do not require a visa to enter South Africa when travelling as a tourist for stays up to 90 days: United Kingdom; United States of America; Canada; Australia; Ireland; Belgium; Netherlands; Italy; France; Germany; Spain, Switzerland.

If you are a passport holder from another country, please contact your local South Africa High Commission or Embassy for up-to-date visa requirements, as citizens of certain countries (including New Zealand) are required to obtain visas before travelling. Please note that if you are applying to the Embassy for your visa, some visas can take a long time to be processed so please do take this into consideration, as it is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct visa in place before you travel.

Please note that anyone travelling to South Africa should have a valid return ticket and a valid passport. Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 30 days from the date of exit from South Africa. However, some immigration officials still request that a passport should have at least 6 months validity from the date of entry to South Africa so to avoid problems on arrival, we advise that your passport meets this requirement instead. The passport must also have sufficient pages for entry/exit stamps - AT LEAST 2 BLANK PAGES.

TRAVELLING TO/FROM SOUTH AFRICA WITH CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN 18 YEARS OF AGE AT DATE OF TRAVEL: It has been recently announced that the immigration laws for children travelling to South Africa who do NOT require a visa are to be relaxed, however not all airlines have updated their systems at the moment to reflect this amendment. Therefore, until we have received notification that all systems have been fully updated with the new relaxed rules, we are strongly advising that all passengers still adher to these following guidelines:

Parents travelling with children must produce an unabridged birth certificate for the child, showing full details of the child's parents. If the birth certificate is in a language other than English, it must be accompanied by a sworn translation issued by a competent authority in the country concerned. If the child is adopted, the adoption certificate must be produced. If only one parent is travelling, said parent must also show consent in the form of an affidavit from the other parent named on the birth certificate authorising the child to travel (the affidavit must be no more than 3 months old from the date of travel), or a court order granting full parental responsibilities to the travelling parent, or (where applicable) a death certificate for the deceased parent. Legally separated parents should also provide a court order when the other parent does not give consent. Where a person is travelling with a child who is not their biological child, he/she must produce an unabridged birth certificate for the child supplemented by affidavits from the child's parents/legal guardian giving consent for the child to travel and copies of the identity documents or passport of the parents/legal guardian PLUS their contact details. There are also additional rules for unaccompanied minors - available on request.

PLEASE NOTE: All documents must be original - PHOTOCOPIES ARE NOT ACCEPTED. In the case of foreign countries that do not issue unabridged birth certificates, a letter to this effect issued by the competent authority of the foreign country should be produced. For more information, contact your local South Africa Embassy or High Commission,  or contact the South African Department of Home Affairs via http://www.dha.gov.za/.

PLEASE NOTE: Countries can change their entry requirements at any time. Travel Butlers try to ensure that the information displayed here is correct, but the onus remains with the traveller to verify the information with the relevant High Commission or Embassy and ensure that they can comply with the applicable entry requirements.

Medical

You are advised to contact your doctor or clinic around 4-8 weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations and to get their professional medical advice regarding travel to South Africa.

To help avoid heatstroke, drink plenty of bottled water/fluids, and keep out of the midday sun.

Tap water is purified and safe to drink in major cities and towns, however, we do advise that you do not drink the water in more remote places such as the camps in the National Parks - the water may be safe to drink, but it simply is not worth the risk, as bottled water is widely available.

Whatever you do, do not drink water from any river lake without firstly purifying the water. Always take water with you when you go on a hike, and have a bottle in the car on a long journey to avoid dehydration.

There is a risk of malaria in and around the Kruger National Park/Mpumalanga Province, the Limpopo (Northern) Province, and the north-eastern part of KwaZulu-Natal - check with your doctor about suitable antimalarial tablets. Try to avoid mosquito bites wherever possible - wear loose long-sleeved clothing and trousers, and use a repellent on clothing and exposed skin.

There is no risk of yellow fever in South Africa, so a yellow fever vaccination is NOT required for travellers whose sole destination is South Africa. However, in accordance with International Health Reguations, South Africa requires all travellers over one year of age arriving from a yellow fever risk country, or having been in transit longer than 12 hours at the airport of such a country, to have a yellow fever certificate. These countries include Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda but it is up to the traveller to check the full list via http://www.who.int/ith/2015-ith-annex1.pdf?ua=1.

If you need emergency medical assistance during your trip, dial 10177 and ask for an ambulance.

Languages And Culture

The 11 official languages are Zulu, Xhosa, Afrikaans, Pedi, English, Tswana, Sotho, Tsonga, Swati, Venda and Ndebele. Whilst many visitors will hear at least a couple of the tribal languages during the course of their stay, it is possible to travel extensively and comfortably with just English as a language.

The South African society is quite liberal, as gay marriage was legalised in 2006 nationwide and everyone’s rights are protected under the constitution. In some more rural areas, however, the local people may not be quite as liberal thinking, so whilst everyone is of course entitled to their own sexual preferences and gender identity, we would advise all clients of the LGBT+ community to refrain from public displays of affection (including kissing and holding hands) and to be as discrete as possible about their relationship if travelling to a rural/remote area.

Important Travel Information For Seychelles

Passport, Visa and Entry Requirements

CURRENT ENTRY RULES IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - Updated 01 October 2020: From 01 August, only visitors who travel from countries deemed to be a low or medium COVID-19 risk will be permitted entry to Seychelles. A list of approved countries can be viewed at the Seychelles Ministry of Health website here: http://tourism.gov.sc/covid-19-guidelines/ - this list may be updated at any time and without warning. If you are eligible for entry to Seychelles, you must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test performed within 72 hours prior to boarding your flight.

IN ADDITION: From 01 October a Visitor Travel Advisory will allow 7 countries with Special Status (UK, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and UAE) to travel but with more stringent sanitary measures:

  • A PCR test for COVID-19 must be done no more than 48 hours prior to departure from the country of origin.
  • After arrival into Seychelles, the visitor must stay in a designated establishment and may not leave the premises for 5 days. 
  • A repeat PCR test will be performed on the 5th day. If the test result is negative, the visitor will be free to continue with his planned holiday. If the test resultis positive, the visitor will be required to stay in a designated stay-safe hotel until cleared by the Public Health Authority.

ALL PASSENGERS will be temperature checked at all ports of arrival. If symptoms of COVID-19 are found to be present, tests will be conducted. Those found to be positive will be quarantined and re-checked.

EVERYBODY must also apply for a Seychelles Health Travel Authorisation (HTA) in advance of travel (no more than 72 hours pre-departure from country of origin) - you can apply from your mobile phone via Android or iOS apps or on the web https://seychelles.govtas.com. A 45 Euro fee will be charged per application (subject to change). After submitting the application, the traveller will receive automatic emails confirming receipt of application and payment. Travellers will then receive a clear response on their eligibility to travel in the form of a secure barcode, also available as a wallet pass, which they can present at check in and boarding. Without this HTA a traveller will NOT be allowed to board a plane to the destination. Each individual is required to apply separately for an HTA. For children under 18 years of age, the legal guardian, parent or accompanying adult is responsible for completing the application.

All passengers must also provide proof of accommodation in an approved establishment for the duration of their stay when entering Seychelles.

It is expected that these rules will be lifted and that the entry requirements will revert to normal as soon as the government of Seychelles deems it safe to do so.

Normally, irrespective of the nationality of the visitor and his or her family members (with some exceptions* - see below), there are NO VISA requirements to enter Seychelles. However, the following documents must be shown in order to obtain immigration clearance at the Seychelles International Airport:

A passport valid on the date of entry to and exit from Seychelles

Return or onward ticket

Proof of accommodation; including contact details

Sufficient funds for the duration of the stay

Presentation of all of the above documents will grant you a Visitor’s Permit that will be issued upon arrival by the Seychelles Department of Immigration. The Visitor’s Permit is initially valid for the period of visit of up to one month.

Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Seychelles and have sufficient blank pages for the Seychelles entry/exit stamps (at least 2).

* If you are a passport holder from certain African countries, please contact your local Seychelles High Commission or Embassy for up-to-date visa requirements, as nationals from certain countries are required to obtain temporary visas before travelling to Seychelles.

Please note that if you are applying to the Embassy for your visa, some visas can take a long time to be processed so please do take this into consideration, as it is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct visa in place before you travel.

PLEASE NOTE: Countries can change their entry requirements at any time. Travel Butlers try to ensure that the information displayed here is correct, but the onus remains with the traveller to verify the information with the relevant High Commission or Embassy and ensure that they can comply with the applicable entry requirements.

Medical

You are advised to contact your doctor or clinic around 4-8 weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations and to get their professional medical advice regarding travel to Seychelles.

To help avoid heatstroke, drink plenty of bottled water/fluids, and keep out of the midday sun.

Tap water meets W.H.O. (World Health Organization) specifications and is safe to drink nationwide. Because tap water is chlorinated, however, visitors are advised to drink bottled water but there is no imperative to avoid soft drinks, alcoholic drinks and ice. If you are in any way concerned about drinking water, bottled water is widely available in shops, restaurants and hotel bars.

There is NO risk of contracting malaria in Seychelles, as the anopheles mosquito does not exist in Seychelles. However, some cases of dengue fever transmitted by mosquitoes have been reported. Try to avoid mosquito bites wherever possible - wear loose long-sleeved clothing and trousers, and use a repellent on clothing and exposed skin.

There is no risk of yellow fever in Seychelles, so a yellow fever vaccination is NOT required for travellers whose sole destination is Seychelles. However, in accordance with International Health Regulations, Seychelles requires all travellers over one year of age arriving from a yellow fever risk country, or having been in transit longer than 12 hours at the airport of such a country, to have a yellow fever certificate. These countries include Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda but it is up to the traveller to check the full list via http://www.who.int/ith/2015-ith-annex1.pdf?ua=1.

Languages And Culture

There are 3 official languages in Seychelles: Creole (a lilting, French-based patois), English and French. Many Seychellois also speak fluent Italian or German.

We would ask that all travellers are respectful of the local culture as follows:

Topless sunbathing is uncommon and not tolerated on some beaches. Nudism is not acceptable.

Homosexuality is not illegal in Seychelles. However, local attitudes do and can vary, so whilst everyone is of course entitled to their own sexual preferences and gender identity, we would advise all clients of the LGBT+ community to refrain from public displays of affection (including kissing and holding hands) and to be as discrete as possible about their relationship.

Please resist the urge to collect seashells along the beaches as many are used as habitation by hermit crabs.  Collecting shells is prohibited in nature reserves, marine parks and reserves in Seychelles.  The unique and unusual tropical flora is beautiful and for it to remain so, it is important that you admire it, but leave it for others to enjoy. 

Be considerate towards the fauna and sensitive to its sometimes fragile nature.  Please walk carefully on the reefs and do not feed sea birds, mammals, turtles or tortoises or disturb them or their nesting grounds.
