Day 1 to 3 - Sabi Sands, South Africa
Watch the sunrise over Southern Africa as your overnight flight descends into Johannesburg, where you will board a short connecting flight to Kruger Mpumalanga. Here you adventure begins, as you’re met in arrivals for your transfer to Arathusa Safari Lodge in the acclaimed Sabi Sands Game Reserve.
Sabi Sands is a private reserve that shares a 50 km unfenced border with Kruger National Park and arguably offers the best wildlife viewing in South Africa. With three nights in the reserve, you’ll have a fantastic opportunity to see the ‘Big 5’ on morning and evening game drives, with the chance to observe the behaviour of leopards in their natural environment a highlight of many safari-goers stay.
Wildlife and birdlife sightings can also be enjoyed from the lodge itself, with hippo, elephant, giraffe and other iconic species frequenting the large waterhole in front of the main building. Big cats have also been known to visit, in search of thirsty prey.
Your stay at Arathusa Safari Lodge is all-inclusive. It’s a truly wonderful property, built from natural materials, designed to blend into the surrounding bush. All twelve suites are air-conditioned and have a private balconies and outdoor shower. There is also a infinity pool by the main bar, perfect for sundowners.

On arrival check in to your airport hotel to relax and refresh before your flight to the Seychelles tomorrow morning.
Hotel: Your choice of airport hotel, Johannesburg Airport
Day 5 to 9 - Mahé, Seychelles
Board your flight from Johannesburg to the Indian Ocean paradise of the Seychelles, where you will be met at the airport for the scenic drive to your hotel, the fabulous Constance Ephelia, on the west coast of Mahé.
The resort spans a 120 hectare jungle clad peninsula with a beautiful beach on either side, where you relax on the soft sands or enjoy complimentary kayaking, pedal boating or windsurfing. There is also a choice of five swimming pools, set amongst tropical gardens, a wonderful selection of bars and restaurants, tennis courts, a children’s club and health spa.
If you can tear yourself away from the resort, the Seychelles has so much to explore. For the energetic, a hike to the summit of its tallest mountain, Morne Seychellois, offers spectacular views across the Mahé and the Indian Ocean. For beach lovers a day tour to neighbouring La Digue is a must, home to the famous Anse Source d’Argent beach.
