Kruger & Mozambique

This 10-day Kruger & Mozambique itinerary combines your traditional safari and beach holidays to offer you the best of both worlds!

Your Kruger & Mozambique holiday will start with a direct flight from Johannesburg to the Private Sabi Sands Game Reserve, located adjacent to the Kruger National Park. Here you will spend 3 nights at the luxury Savanna Lodge, where in addition to exploring the wilderness of the Kruger, you will be treated to three delicious meals a day, as well as local drinks and snacks. Your stay in the Sabi Sands is guaranteed to be an exciting one, with loads of game-viewing opportunities. During your stay, you’ll set off on a number of morning and afternoon game drives, accompanied by expert trackers and guides to ensure that you don’t miss any exciting game. You should also venture out on a morning bush walk or two, which will give you the chance to see to see some of the smaller and lesser known wonders that nature has to offer.

Following your stay in the Sabi Sands, you’ll set off on the next leg of your Kruger & Mozambique holiday, which brings you to the tranquil Bazaruto archipelago in Mozambique. You’ll spend 5 nights at Anantara Bazaruto Resort, where you can spend your time soaking up the sun whilst looking out over the tropic waters and taking in the beautiful scenery. Of course, there are also a variety of water activities to be enjoyed, like snorkelling and diving, amongst others, should you be looking for things to keep you busy!

The Kruger & Mozambique 9-day itinerary offers couples, families and friends travelling together the best of both beach and safari. The tranquillity of the Sabi Sands and the peaceful atmosphere on the Bazaruto Archipelago also makes this an ideal holiday for honeymooners looking for a romantic getaway and couples looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
