Sabi Sands Safari and Mozambique Beach

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.

Safari in the Sabi SandsBIG GAME SAFARI in the Sabi Sands… 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.


Luxury beach holiday in MozambiqeuSERIOUS BEACH RELAXATION in Mozambique…  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 tooin 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…

What does it cost…? This is one of  the options that normally comes with a slightly higher up-front price tag, because in such remote areas, almost everything you eat, drink, or do on the ground is already included. Starting costs are normally around £4,750 per person for two weeks, but this depends hugely on the choices that you make and the time of year you go- sometimes if we’re cunning and it’s off season it’s less, if you fall in love with the more exclusive lodges and want to travel in peak season it can be significantly more. The best way to get a more exact answer is to give us a few quick bits of info and we can tell you.
