Bush & Beach Overview

A thrilling Big Five safari adventure in malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, which works with a toddler in tow, followed by a week of relaxation on the tropical shores of Mauritius.

Arrive into Johannesburg after your overnight flight. Opt for a private transfer or self-drive for your journey to the malaria-free Big Five, Madikwe Game Reserve (approx 4 hours by car). If your budget allows, it's worth upgrading to the 1 hour shuttle flight instead. Enjoy 3 nights in your luxury lodge with daily game drives at dawn and dusk - spot elephant, lion and the rare Wild Dog. NB Children under 5 are not usually allowed on the main game drives but have their own 'bumble' after breakfast. Alternatively, for a supplement, you can book accommodation with a sole-use game drive vehicle and head out to the bush together - an option we find most of our clients prefer. After your stay in Madikwe, set off early in your hire car or meet your transfer driver for your journey back to Johannesburg. Take a lunchtime flight to Mauritius, arriving early evening (approx 4.5 hours journey time). Upon arrival you will be met for your private transfer to your chosen resort. Enjoy relaxing on powder white sands or try your hand at one of the multitude of water-sports on offer. On your final day, head back to the airport to connect with your flight home.
