Combine a wildlife safari in one of South Africa’s premier wilderness regions with the romantic allure of sandy beaches and balmy seas in beautiful Mozambique. Track the Big Five at prestigious Ngala Private Game Reserve or the renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve, both of which are famed for their excellent cat sightings. Enjoy intimate wildlife encounters at either of these famous reserves, where night drives add the unusual thrill of sharing the nocturnal world of the large predators. Relax from the rigours of your safari on the unspoilt beaches of Mozambique, with a romantic cruise in a dhow or an adventurous dive on magnificent coral reefs.

This safari begins at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and ends at Vilanculos Airport in Mozambique.

On arrival at OR Tambo International Airport you will be warmly welcomed by a member of the &Beyond team, who will help you onto a charter flight to your choice of the following destinations:

Timbavati Private Nature Reserve

Situated adjacent to the world-renowned Kruger National Park, the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve is a pristine wilderness that is home to a plethora of wildlife. This exceptional habitat boasts over 40 mammal species, including the Big Five, and 360 bird species. The Timbavati is also known as the birthplace of the mysterious white lion, which have since left the area, but can sometimes be seen in the Kruger National Park.

Spend two nights at your choice of the following:

  • An air conditioned cottage with an intimate veranda at Ngala Safari Lodge.
  • A deluxe tent with wooden decks at Ngala Tented Camp

Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees, emergency medical evacuation insurance, laundry, twice-daily game drives and nature walks. Specialist Safaris available at an additional cost include Birding at Ngala, Photographic Safaris at Ngala, Tracking at Ngala and Walking Adventures at Ngala.

Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Bordering the Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve guarantees a never to be forgotten experience of the African bush. With no fences between the reserve and the vast Kruger Park, animals wander across vast stretches of grazing land as they did decades ago. With one of the richest game populations in the country, the chances of seeing the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) are excellent.

Relax for two nights at your choice of the following:

  • A spacious stone cottage with sparkling plunge pool and shady deck at &Beyond Dulini Lodge
  • A luxury suite with private plunge pool and spacious deck at &Beyond Exeter River Lodge

Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees, emergency medical evacuation insurance, laundry, twice-daily game drives and guided nature walks. Specialist Safaris available at additional cost include Private and Photographic Safaris.

You will be driven to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport to catch a flight to Vilanculos Airport (flight not included in costing). On arrival at Vilanculos you will be welcome by a member of the &Beyond team, who will take you to Benguerra Lodge.

As the second largest island of the Bazaruto Archipelago, Benguerra offers exceptional opportunities to witness a slice of Mozambique's incredible marine life and experience an abundance of island activities. Characterised by its towering sand dunes, inland lakes and idyllic beaches, Benguerra was declared a National Park in 1971. It is home to over 140 bird species and the pristine waters surrounding the island, as well as the exceptional archipelago, are home to the rare dugong and one of the most untouched coral reeds in the world. Guests visiting the island awake to the sounds of fishermen trading their daily catch from their traditional sailing dhows and embark on a series of adventures such as romantic dhow cruises, diving, snorkelling and exhilarating catch-and-release deep-sea fishing.

Indulge in four nights in a casita room at Benguerra Lodge. Your stay includes all meals and drinks (excluding selected spirits and wines), a private butler service, laundry and adventures such as snorkelling, sea kayaking, picnics, dhow cruises, island tours and village excursions, perfect for a romantic honeymoon adventure.

After a mouthwatering breakfast you will be flown to Vilanculos Airport by light aircraft.
