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.


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

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

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.

Accommodation: Machangulo Beach Lodge
