This trip is a brilliant balance of affordable bush and beach. First, you’ll spend 3 days on safari in South Africa’s stunning Waterberg region, where you’ll take exciting game drives at dawn and dusk and stay at a beautiful lodge overlooking a lake. Then, after a quick overnight stop in Johannesburg, you’ll set course for Mozamique's mainland coastline.
For your 3 nights on safari, you will visit the Entabeni Private Reserve. This 22,000 hectare malaria-free game reserve is not only popular with visitors because of the opportunity to see big game such as lion, elephant, giraffe, leopard, warthog, rhino, hippo, and a variety of birds and antelope species, but it also offers beautiful scenery.
To end your trip, you have 6 nights at the Bahia Mar Boutique Hotel, which is situated in the small fishing village of Vilanculos, with views over the ocean to the Bazarato islands. The beach at Vilanculos is an easy walk away.
Arrive into Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport. Once you have cleared Customs and Immigration and collected your bags, make your way into the Arrivals Hall where your driver will meet you. You will then be transferred to the Entabeni Safari Conservancy by road (about a 3 hour drive).
The 22,000 hectare Entabeni Private Reserve is not only popular with visitors because of the opportunity to see big game such as lion, elephant, giraffe, leopard, warthog, rhino, hippo, and a variety of birds and antelope species, but it also offers beautiful scenery. There is also the opportunity to enjoy scenic helicopter flights, hot air balloon safaris, stargazing in the observatory, quad biking and sunset lake cruises.
The reserve is also a malaria-free area, making this a great choice for visitors who want to enjoy the African wildlife without the worry of taking anti-malarial precautions.
After you return from your morning game drive, you will have time to enjoy breakfast at the lodge before you are collected and transferred back to Johannesburg, where you will overnight at a comfortable and convenient airport hotel.
After breakfast, take the complimentary shuttle bus to the International Departure Terminal and check in for your late morning flight across to Mozambique. Passengers are advised to check in at least 2.5 hours prior to the flight departure.
