Beyond luxury Luxury bush and beach safari

Turn on your OOO and call the plant-sitter. One spectacular week of big game and seaside snoozing are waiting for you in Africa’s pristine southern stretches. Luxury bush and beach safari is a thrilling heart-thumping safari, part beach holiday, if you need a break away from it all, this is it.

You’ll safari in one of Africa’s very best game-viewing spots, Timbavati, known for it’s  mix of diverse scenery, Big Five sightings and faultless five-star service. Experience a romantic treehouse high above the hunting grounds of rare white lions, this is South African safari at its finest.

And when you’ve had your fill of early mornings, white-knuckle game drives and sleepless nights of stargazing, the coral-fringed islands of the Indian Ocean are only too happy to oblige. Among the butterflies, desert island beach picnics, and rare dugongs of the Bazaruto Archipelago, you’ll holiday hard. You’re on no one’s time but your own. The world can wait.


  • Spotting leopards – and the rest of the Big Five – on the private fringes of the great Kruger
  • You’ll track big game on drives and on foot and connect with nature – and each other
  • The chance to spot the famous white lions of the Timbavati
  • Birdwatching and diving with dugongs in the Bazaruto Archipelago
  • Romantic picnics on a deserted sand bar in the middle of the Indian Ocean

Day by day Itinerary overview

You’ll catch a flight from Jo'burg directly to the romantic Ngala Tented Camp. Your safari awaits in the sandy riverbeds and open grasslands of the iconic Timbavati. Home to one of Africa’s finest Big Five game-viewing experiences. Spend three days tracking and photographing everything from the white lions of the Birmingham Pride to wobbly baby elephants.

One star-studded night in Ngala’s romantic treehouse, with miles of African bush all to yourself and endless constellations above you. If you’re too excited to sleep, that’s OK. Let your mind wander and your spirit soar.

Tired but unbelievably happy, you’ll catch a flight to Vilanculos and on to Benguerra Island. Here in the warm tropical waters of the Bazaruto Archipelago, you’ll enjoy five lazy days of post-safari R&R. When you’ve recovered from all those early morning game drives in your beachside casinha, the Indian Ocean awaits. Grab an oxygen tank and head off in search of rare dugongs, go swimming on horseback, or catch the sunset from the seat of a colourful dhow. There are few places in Africa more idyllic than this, making it a fitting end to a spectacular Southern African safari.
