Summary Of The Route and Costs
This 10 night honeymoon packs romance, excitement and adventure into a trip of a lifetime. Enjoy a safari in Kruger's exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve where for one night you sleep under the stars, relax in a luxury retreat for 2 nights where the emphasis is on comfort, relaxation and romance, and end with 5 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 the many smaller but still fascinating animals that also live in 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 romantic 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.
After your exciting safari, you head to Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa - a true barefoot luxury retreat near the small village of Hazyview. Your luxury tented suite is surrounded by the music of nature - the sounds of cascading water, amplified by a choir of bird calls and the occasional snort of a hippo.
A short flight take you to Vilanculos after your relaxing 2 nights at Summerfields. On arrival in Mozambique 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.
Honeymoon offers included in this package are:
One of the happy couple receives a 20% discount on their accommodation at Lion Sands River Lodge.
The bride receives a 50% discount on her accommodation at Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort & Spa as well as sparkling wine in the room on arrival, a romantic turndown and a complimentary Spa Rasul treatment for two.
Summary Of The Itinerary
Holiday Title: Big 5 Safari and Tropical Island Honeymoon
Countries Visited: South Africa and Mozambique
Arrive into Skukuza Airport. Collect your luggage then make your way into the Arrivals Hall where you will be met by your Lion Sands guide. You will then be transferred to Lion Sands River Lodge in the exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
Well known as one of Africa's finest safari destinations, the exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve shares a common 50 km unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park to the east. With no boundary fences between the Sabi Sand and the Kruger National Park, a great diversity of wildlife is found here, including the Big Five, but it is the big cat game viewing - in particular phenomenal close up leopard sightings - which set this reserve aside from any other. Off-road driving enables the best possible view of any exceptional sighting. Your spacious and private River Suite has a plunge pool and is set further away from the main lodge, making this ideal for honeymooners.
Sabi Sand Game Reserve
For a truly memorable sleeping experience, spend tonight at the Chalkley Tree House - an ultimate 'bush bedroom' on a secure platform with all the comforts of a 5* safari lodge yet surrounded by the African bush and open to the skies. You are taken to the Tree House at sunset, where drinks and a scrumptious picnic dinner have been set out for you. The hours of African dusk can be enjoyed relaxing and absorbing the vastness of the bushveld as it transforms from day to night, before turning in for slumber beneath the incredible night sky.
After you return from your morning game drive, you will have time to enjoy breakfast before you are collected and transferred to Hazyview for a 2 night stay in Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa.
Summerfields is all about barefoot luxury, a place to renew your senses, to rest your body and rediscover your soul. Go for a walk through the orchards, listen to the sounds of nature while being pampered in the spa, or merely relax with a good book and an excellent glass of champagne.
