Seychelles Vacation and Luxury African Safari

This Seychelles Vacation and Luxury African Safari was planned for a couple from New York who were celebrating a wedding anniversary. They wanted a mix of safari and beach, so we sent them to Cape Town, a luxury safari lodge, and a fabulous resort in the Seychelles.

We started their Seychelles Vacation and Luxury African Safari in the vibrant city of Cape Town. They stayed at one of our favorite hotels right on the water and were treated to beautiful views of Table Mountain. For the next 3 days, they had the days completely to themselves to explore Cape Town. They took the iconic cableway up the mountain for unparalleled views of the city; indulged in the very best of South African food, which takes its influences from all over the world; explored fascinating museums and chic shops; and took an excursion to Boulders Beach to see the local penguin colony.

Next on their Seychelles Vacation and Luxury African Safari, we sent them to the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve on the border of the Kruger National Park. They stayed at Singita Boulders Lodge, an inviting oasis where organic interiors integrate seamlessly with the raw African beauty outside. During their stay, they enjoyed game drives in the Sabi Sands, which is well known for its amazing leopard sightings. In the evenings, they were able to unwind in the outdoor boma and indulge in exquisite South African cuisine.

To finish their Seychelles Vacation and Luxury African Safari, they traveled to their extraordinary island destination, Mahe in the Seychelles. Every island in the Seychelles is ringed with stunning beaches: spectacular ribbons of the finest white sand lapped by cerulean waters, with no one in sight. They spent a week relaxing on the sandy white beaches, swimming in the warm Indian Ocean, and being pampered at their luxury resort.

At last, their magical holiday came to an end. They flew back to Johannesburg to catch their flight home.
