From perfect vantage points and the ultimate safari experiences, to pristine island beaches, this trip offers you the opportunity to enjoy some of the best scenery and wildlife South Africa and Mauritius have to offer.
The adventure starts in Cape Town where you will spend some time exploring the vibrant city before heading to the top of iconic Table Mountain for spectacular views. Take a detour through the Bo Kaap with its cobbled streets and brightly coloured houses. Then head out of the city centre for a tour of the Peninsula at large. This privately-guided tour will include a scenic drive up Chapman’s Peak, the ocean sparkling below the winding road, and visits to quaint villages like Noordhoek and Kalk Bay. Stop off to see the penguin colony in Simonstown and breathe the fresh sea air at Cape Point.
Leave the Mother City behind and head out into the bush of the Kruger National Park. Once you’ve settled into your luxury lodge, you spend the next few days making the most of all the park has to offer including looking out for the famed Big Five on morning and afternoon game drives.
Next, you will spend one night in buzzing Johannesburg on your way to the much slower pace of Mauritius, where brilliant blue waters and sandy white beaches await. Spend the last few days of your adventure soaking up the sun on the shore or beside your resort pool, or tackle some of the many thrilling activities on offer. From diving and snorkelling to watersports, there’s plenty to fill your days.
