DAYS 1 -5: Game Drives & Bush Walks in Kruger

This adventure includes your international flights so you will be met on arrival into Johannesburg and assisted with the arrangements for your air shuttle service to the private air-strip at Chitwa Chitwa Lodge in the Sabi Sand Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park. Enjoy the next 4 nights combining nature and luxury, with a safari in a Big 5 reserve. This is some of the best game viewing in South Africa. And when you are not out on a game drive relax by the pool, enjoy a spa treatment or simply enjoy the bush. You will enjoy the next four nights combining nature and luxury.

In the renowned Sabi Sand Reserve Chitwa Chitwa offers an unforgettable romantic African experience in one of the most unique settings, adjoining the Kruger National Park. Charl and Maria have created a spacious camp which reflects stylish relaxed sophistication. Here guests enjoy the luxury of viewing game across an expansive stretch of water under the shade of mature trees. Swim in the pool whilst watching hippo and elephants bathe in the dam, or relax with a glass of wine or good book on the deck. Decorated in a sophisticated contemporary style, spacious open-plan suites are air-conditioned and provide every modern comfort, each has a private pool.

Savour African-Mediterranean cuisine and sip fine wines and in the evenings, the candlelit boma beckons beneath starlit night skies. Morning and evening game drives in open Landrovers spotting the Big Five or nocturnal Night Five after dark.

During your stay we encourage our clients to visit the community project run by the Chitwa Trust and visit the Dixie Community. The Cultural Village Excursion, headed by professional field guide Chris Sebuye affords the opportunity to slip unnoticed into a day in the life of the locals whilst tapping into the optimism and energy that is so much part of this little village’s charm. The transfer will be in a Chitwa Chitwa open vehicle and will take about two hours from the time of departure from the lodge.

DAY 6 – 12: Aaaah, Relax in Magnificent Mozambique

Only another short flight and you’ll be there! Transfer back to the airstrip for your flight to Mozambique. On arrival you will be met and taken to the boutique Bahia Mar Hotel, overlooking the Bazaruto Islands. You’ll spend 5 glorious nights here where you will enjoy the pristine beaches, fresh sea food, scuba diving and game fishing. A perfect tropical beach holiday destination, for couples and families alike. The beach lodges in Mozambique are not large resort hotels but small and exclusive African lodges. The beaches are pristine, the seafood fresh, the scuba diving and game fishing some of the best in the world – kick back, and relax.

Bahia Mar is a small and stylish boutique hotel, experience personal and friendly service in a stunning location, and accommodation options which can be mixed and matched to suit your party and requirements. Activities range from sea safaris and diving to dhow and canoe trips, horse riding, tuk tuk tours and more. Mayara, a 40-foot luxury power boat, allows you to spend days out at sea, snorkelling, island hopping, and even wake-boarding, skiing or tubing with an accompanying tender boat. The shared hotel space consists of a restaurant, a lovely lounge, and a beautiful swimming pool with a swim-up bar.

It will be a wrench to say good-bye but we must take you back to Vilanculos Airport for the flight to Johannesburg that connects with the overnight flight back to the UK. You can always come back though!
