This luxury Safari and Beach Vacation is perfect for those who want an African safari with a mix of adventure and relaxation at their own pace. We designed this package for a couple from Atlanta who wanted a beach escape in Mozambique as well as a South Africa wildlife safari.

They started their journey at Savanna Private Game Reserve, a 5-star luxury lodge located in the Sabi Sands region of Kruger National Park. This area of Kruger is famous for its abundant leopard, and our clients saw several leopards in addition to other members of the African Big 5. After each thrilling day of Kruger safari activities, they retreated back to the lodge for a delicious dinner and relaxing evening watching the local wildlife from their private deck.

Next on their Safari and Beach Vacation, they were transferred to White Pearl Resorts on the Mozambique beach for 4 nights in paradise. En route, they enjoyed an exciting, scenic helicopter flight. At White Pearl, they were free to indulge in the utmost luxury. They enjoyed excellent meals, crisp ocean air, and rejuvenating spa treatments. Their days also had just the right amount of adventure: they went snorkeling in the colorful reef and were able to get up close to sea turtles nesting on the beach.

After this fabulous beach escape, they continued their safari adventure in South Africa. The next stop on their Safari and Beach Vacation was the luxurious and utterly secluded Phinda Mountain Lodge. There, they began their days on morning game drives to spot the Big 5, then returned to the lodge for a wonderful breakfast and a leisurely break. They also enjoyed bird watching and a special canoe excursion. Then it was on to evening game drives to see more African wildlife before returning to Phinda Mountain Lodge to indulge in a delicious dinner and relax on their private deck overlooking the gorgeous mountain scenery.

At last, their Safari and Beach Vacation came to an end. They were transferred to the airport in Johannesburg to begin the journey home.
