Tour at a glance

This 12-day tour includes all you need for the ideal vacation: watch the Big 5 in exhilarating detail before taking a flight to a stunning hideaway on the Indian Ocean beach.

Beginning at the renowned Jock Safari Lodge in the Kruger National Park. The Biyamiti and Mitomeni rivers meet above the lodge, providing breathtaking views of the water and the surrounding bushland. You can go for your afternoon game drive as soon as your guide is prepared. As the sun slowly dips toward the golden hour of twilight, anything can happen in this area, which is renowned for its abundance of wildlife and resident lion prides. Your senses are heightened by the rawness and purity of your surroundings, which make the colours look sharper and the air sweeter. Your guide will look for a sundowner location to take in the sights as the sun sets toward the horizon. The first day of your safari, with a glass in hand and the African bush all around you, is one of the few experiences that can compare. Drive back to the resort at night while using a spotlight to look for nocturnal animals emerging from their burrows. Less common animals you might observe include honey badgers, civets, and genets.

Continue on to Azura, a tropical haven on Benguerra Island in Mozambique’s stunning Bazaruto Archipelago, where understated luxury and excellent surroundings allow you to explore and indulge, rest, and unwind in the epitome of castaway-chic, for six nights.

Indulge in holistic spa treatments, engage in yoga, or simply bask in the sun next to your private pool while enjoying a gently ocean wind to help you relax into the easy rhythms of island life. Take leisurely strolls around the island or head out to sea for picnics on a deserted island where the only company you’ll have is the sound of the waves lapping gently against the shore.

Everything is ready for any experiences the ocean may provide you should you feel the desire for something more strenuous. The game fishing is world-class, and diving is much better. On land, you can go kayaking, sailing, or snorkelling, or you can go on a drive with the local guide to see the island’s wildlife and birds and learn about its conservation initiatives.
