Day 1 - 3: Arrive Johannesburg's OR Tambo Airport

Accommodation: Mjejane River Lodge

This morning you arrive at Johannesburg's OR Tambo Airport where you will connect with a scheduled flight to Kruger Mpumalanga Airport and transfer by road to your lodge. Depending on your time of arrival, you may venture out on your first-afternoon game drive in the private reserve of Mjejane. Be sure to have your camera ready as your ranger brings you up-close to the animals. Enjoy your first African sunset beside the river before heading back to the lodge for a scrumptious dinner.

The following days will start off with early morning game drives in the Kruger National Park as you search for the Big 5. On your return, you will sit down to enjoy brunch and then have some time to relax before heading out on an afternoon game drive in the Mjejane Game Reserve. Savor boma dinners, starlit skies, and breath-taking views from your private patio which overlooks the Crocodile River.  

Day 4 - 8: Mjejane to Machangulo Beach Lodge

Accommodation: Machangulo Beach Lodge

This morning you bid farewell to the African bush as you road transfer to Machangulo Beach Lodge which is an approximate 3 to 4-hour journey. On your arrival, you are welcomed by the friendly staff of Machangulo as you begin your vacation in a tropical paradise. Enjoy your favorite beverage whilst you watch the sunset over the ocean and later delight in some spectacular Mozambiquean cuisine.

The next few days are yours to explore the island or to do absolutely nothing. Should you feel a little adventurous, be sure to explore the ocean with the number of activities on offer at the lodge. A visit to Inhaca Island and Santa Maria is highly recommended. 

Day 9: Depart Machangulo Beach Lodge

After one final walk along the white sandy beach and breakfast, you bid farewell to Mozambique as you transfer by boat to Maputo Marina and then road transfer to Maputo Airport, or alternatively transfer by road directly from the lodge to the airport.

"The most amazing experience from booking to the trip itself. From inception, my experience was great. Giada was my travel agent and she tailored my trip to perfectly match my tastes. There were different types of accommodation provided yet all of a high standard. The safaris were amazing and I saw most of the big 5. All in all a fantastic milestone birthday vacation well executed and enjoyed! I would recommend without reservation and Giada in particular."

"First time and it was lovely The whole experience was great once I pinned down my booking as this time of year was very busy. The transport was great, the accommodations were a nice surprise and the people were friendly and helpful. I also thought that it was very reasonable. It couldn't have been a more perfect fit for my Safari wishes. Thank you."
