Choosing the location for your next holiday adventure can be strenuous and tiresome. What type of getaway have I got my heart set on? Which location will give me the most amount of experience?

We say there is no need to choose. Africa is too beautiful to only visit one small area, it deserves appreciation, from the clear, warm-water beachfront of Mozambique to the big-five hot spot of the Kruger National Park. Every sight, smell and sound tells its own unique story, why limit yourself to a handful?

That was our motivation when creating this tour – giving you the fullest experience possible, without skimping on quality.

Highlights

  • Experiencing the different sides of South Africa, from the green, rolling feilds of the Cape Winelands with its cosy accommodations and world-class wines to the inner city life of Cape Town filled with vibrant nightclubs, shopping malls and cultural influence.
  • Getting your toes sandy on the breathtaking island paradise of Bazaruto Archipelago while relaxing at the esteemed &Beyond Benguerra Island.
  • Venturing into the African wild, tracking endangered predators or 4×4’ing past herds of Elephant while staying at the luxurious Singita Ebony Lodge.
