We planned this Africa Vacation Packages: South Africa and Mozambique journey for a couple from Michigan celebrating their retirement. They wanted a bucket list trip to Africa to see the Big 5, but also wanted to travel in style and stay on the beach for part of their vacation. This journey took them to an incredible luxury lodge in South Africa, followed by a heavenly beach retreat in Mozambique.
Africa Vacation Packages: South Africa and Mozambique trip began in Johannesburg, where they received a VIP meet and greet at the airport. A short domestic flight brought them to Phinda Private Game Reserve. They had a choice between 2 luxury lodges: Phinda Forest Lodge and Phinda Mountain Lodge. They chose to stay in the Mountain Lodge for spectacular views over the South African bush.
The next 3 days were full of adventure. They rose early for morning game drives to discover the breathtaking thrill of seeing African wildlife, from elephants to small African wild dogs, up close in the wild. In addition to members of the Big 5, they were able to see cheetahs and elusive white and black rhinos with the help of expert guides. In the hot afternoons, they cooled off back at the luxury lodge before enjoying more game drives in the evening.
After their African wildlife safari, they continued their Africa Vacation Packages: South Africa and Mozambique journey with a road transfer to White Pearl Resorts. This exclusive beach resort offers elegant simplicity set in the dunes of the untouched shores of southern Mozambique. Here, they were free to soak up the surrounding coastal beauty in luxury and seclusion. They also enjoyed some snorkeling in the vibrant reef and took a tour of the local town. 5-star service, in-room massage treatments, and scrumptious gourmet meals made for a truly special beach getaway.
At last, their Africa Vacation Packages: South Africa and Mozambique vacation came to an end. They took a short road transfer and flight back to Johannesburg to begin their onward journey home.
