Why this safari works…. You’ve got some seriously slinky lodges at both ends, the sort of game viewing that makes Attenborough seem like an amateur, and some serious R & R thrown in too. This works ludicrously well as a safari and beach honeymoon, but with the right guides and some handpicked lodges could make a knock out family safari trip.
BIG GAME SAFARI in the Sabi Sands (3-5 days)… We’ve done safari all over Africa. More game reserves than we can count. And when it comes to clear, up-close sightings of the big animals in the wild, the Sabi Sands is a hands-down winner. Especially when it comes to leopards. Genuinely, we can’t think of anywhere better on the continent for spotting leopards on safari.
SERIOUS BEACH RELAXATION in Mozambique (5-7 days)… Depending on your destination (we’ll help you pick somewhere that suits you just right) drive up to the South Coast of Mozambique or hop n’ fly over to Bazaruto Archipelago. We’ve got stylish boutique hotels, gorgeous island hideaways, and the sort of lodges fishermen will die for. Fisherwomen too – in the EA office we’ve got a 50lb tuna to our name…
Other ideas for your African adventure…. If you’re on an African honeymoon, we would definitely suggest taking a few days of R & R to start your trip off with. We have somewhere to die for hiding right up our sleeves. Adrenaline junkies could start with a few days in Victoria Falls, and for an injection of civilisation, a few days in Cape Town could be rather lovely. Or, take a night in Johannesburg en route and switch your beach option for the Quirimbas Archipelago, Mauritius or the Seychelles.
When to go… Pretty much any time, except the wetter months of late November/December through till around March. Though even these months are gorgeously warm and great for diving, so if you’re intrepid, we couldn’t rule ‘em out.
Make your safari Extraordinary by… planning a candlelit dinner for two in the African bush or asking the guide to teach your family how to track wild animals. Or, let us spoil you rotten and come up with a surprise…
