FULL DAY BY DAY ITINERARY

Day 1:           Savanna Private Game Reserve, Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve

South Africa

This vast country is undoubtedly one of the most culturally and geographically diverse places on earth. Fondly known by locals as the ‘Rainbow Nation’, South Africa has 11 official languages and its multicultural inhabitants are influenced by a fascinating mix of African, Asian and European cultures. Spend your days: discovering the gourmet restaurants, impressive art and nightlife scenes and fine beaches of Cape Town; enjoying a typical local braai (barbecue) in the Soweto township; browsing the bustling Indian markets in Durban; or sampling some of the world’s finest wines at the myriad wine estates dotted around the picturesque Cape Winelands. Due to its rich and turbulent history there are plenty of historical attractions to explore including the Zululand battlefields of KwaZulu-Natal, the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg and Robben Island, just off the coast of Cape Town. Above all else, South Africa’s attraction lies in its remarkably untamed wilderness with its astonishing range of wildlife roaming freely across massive unfenced game reserves such as the world famous Kruger National Park. With all of this variety on offer, it is little wonder that South Africa has fast become Africa’s most popular tourist destination.

Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve

The Sabi Sands is South Africa’s premier private game viewing destination.  It was here that the southern African safari began and today this famous reserve offers exceptional game viewing and equally exceptional accommodations. Two perennial rivers, the Sabi and the Sand flow through this Game Park, sustaining the diverse fauna and flora of the area.
The success of leopard viewing within the Sabi Sands is legendary.  Elephants, lion, rhino, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, zebra and a vast variety of antelope and other species can be closely observed in their natural environment.

Day 5:           Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort & Spa, Bazaruto Archipelago

Mozambique

Mozambique beckons with its coastline and swaying palms, its traditions, its cultures, its vibe and – most of all – its opportunities for adventure. This enigmatic southeast African country is well off most travellers’ maps, but it has much to offer those who venture here: long, dune-fringed beaches, turquoise waters abounding in shoals of colourful fish, well-preserved corals, remote archipelagos in the north, pounding surf in the south and graceful dhows with billowing sails. Add to this colonial-style architecture, pulsating nightlife, an endlessly fascinating cultural mix and vast tracks of bush populated with elephants, lions and birds galore. Discovering these attractions is not always easy, but it is unfailingly rewarding. Bring along some patience and a sense of adventure, and jump in for the journey of a lifetime.

Bazaruto Archipelago

Renowned as the “Pearl of the Indian Ocean” the Bazaruto Archipelago offers peace, solitude and incredible sunrises and sunsets. These idyllic islands promise holidays full of fun, sea, sun and sand with superb diving, surfing, kite surfing, fishing, swimming, snorkelling or horseback riding on the beach.

Rare dugongs, sea horses, manta rays and whale sharks make their home in these warm Indian Ocean waters around Bazaruto Island, Benguerra Island, Magaruque Island and Santa Carolina (or Paradise) Island which are reached through Vilanculos. The coral reefs in these crystal clear waters offer some of the best diving in the world with dive sites reaching 30m/90 feet. Divers will feel like explorers in these uncrowded waters teeming with humpbacks, giant manta rays, turtles, dolphins, sharks and whale sharks.

October to the end of January is top notch Marlin fishing season and salt water fly fisherman will find plenty of bone fish.

Snorkelling above the splendid coral reefs is an unforgettable experience in this untouched paradise, which honeymooners present year round.

Kite surfing has taken a hold with beginners being able to stay in the shallow sheltered bays and experienced kite surfers can braze themselves for erratic tides and high winds on occasion.

Overnight: Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort & Spa
