The Best of South Africa and Mauritius

The Best of South Africa and Mauritius

There really is nothing like wrapping up a Big 5 safari with a few days on the beach. Combining a South African wildlife adventure with a relaxed beach retreat on the island of Mauritius will give you an unbeatable blend of excitement and relaxation. What's more, you can work your holiday in whatever way suits you, starting with the safari or the beach depending on your own personal taste.

Mauritius is a sun-drenched island with endless white beaches and crystal clear waters fringed with palm trees. No postcard can do it justice. There's a really excellent assortment of accommodation on the island, from honeymoon havens to family-friendly resorts, so whatever you are looking for you can find it here.

Many of the hotels also run exceptional special offers throughout the year, especially for honeymooners, where the bride can stay for half-price - or even in some instances for nothing!

South Africa is scattered with some of the world's best safari spots. Kruger National Park is the crowning glory of Big 5 game reserves, offering safari experiences that will leave you speechless and wishing you didn't have to ever leave. Or if you don't fancy the hassle of taking malaria tablets for any of your trip, then you are spoilt for choice between the many Eastern Cape reserves or the superb lodges in Madikwe or the Waterberg to the north of the country.

In addition, if you have a little more time to spare, why not trying travelling beyond South Africa's wildlife reserves and include a few nights in Cape Town and/or the Winelands, which will add a twist of culture and cuisine to your safari and sun-soaked adventure.

Whichever way to choose to mix up these magical destinations, you'll be guaranteed a trip to remember for years to come.

We've come up with a few classic ideas for combining Mauritius and South Africa below. Hopefully, they'll give you some inspiration to start planning your very own adventure.
