This 9-day tour is an exploration of one of Africa's most renowned safari destinations and a gorgeous tropical beach in Mozambique.


Your journey begins in Kruger National Park where one is afforded the opportunity of experiencing open vehicle game drives experience that brings you up-close encounters with the famous Big 5.

Mjejane River Lodge is the ideal place to experience a safari with its location within the Mjejane Game Reserve which incorporates the Kruger National Park. Perched on the banks of the Crocodile River and boasting thousands of acres of wilderness, Mjejane is your retreat for the next three days as you explore the bushveld on exhilarating game drives.

You then travel onwards to the magical coast of Mozambique. With its warm turquoise waters and white sandy beaches, Mozambique is the perfect location to relax and sink your toes in the sand or take part in a number of beach and water activities offered at Machangulo Beach Lodge. It is the perfect haven for guests looking for exclusivity, relaxation, and a little bit of adventure.

From off-road game drives to diving amongst pristine coral reefs, this tour is ideal for families, couples, and solo travelers seeking an adventure.

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.

So far, great service
This review is for the booking only as we have not taken our trip yet. Safari expert Sara Van Coille has been great to work with. We booked later than we planned and she was able to come up with an itinerary that was perfect for our group. Sara has responded to all our questions and was very quick to get back to me. From our experience so far, we would definitely recommend Safari.com

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
