A rustic and unique safari experience but with all the necessary comforts as well as the opportunity to go on thrilling daily game drives, followed by being able to gaze out over crystal blue waters, white sandy beaches and shady palm trees…what more could you want?
You'll begin in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger Park. Every day you’ll drive through the bush in an open-topped safari vehicle searching for lion, leopard, elephant and more. Your accommodation is truly unique - your bedroom is at eye-level with the trees, offering a birds-eye view over the African bush below from your private balcony. A traditional boma area rounds off the bush camp safari experience, where evenings are spent sharing stories of the bush under the open starry skies.
After a brief overnight stop in Johannesburg to catch your breath, you'll jet off to the totally tropical island of Mauritius. Here, you'll stay in a lovely 3* plus resort set within exotic gardens on the superb east coast of the island with a magnificent white sandy beach right on your doorstep. Simply stretch out on a lounger and doze in the sunshine while the cool breeze rustles through the coconut palms. It's pure beach bliss.
