Summary Of The Itinerary

Holiday Title: Big 5 and Beaches

Countries Visited: South Africa and Mauritius

Day 1

Arrive into Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport. Go through Immigration, collect your luggage and clear Customs, then make your way to the Domestic Departure Terminal to check in for your next flight.

You will be met in the Arrivals Hall by your driver and transferred to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

Reputed to be one of Africa's finest safari destinations, the exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve shares a common 50 km unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park to the east. With no boundary fences between the Sabi Sand and the Kruger National Park, a great diversity of wildlife is found here, including the Big Five, but it is the big cat game viewing - in particular phenomenal close up leopard sightings - which set this reserve aside from any other. Game drives traverse the area every morning and afternoon, and strict vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of your game viewing experience. Off-road driving enables the best possible view of any exceptional sighting and rangers are constantly in touch with each other to keep track of animal movements.
