Itinerary

Overview

Madikwe Game Reserve is fast gaining a reputation as one of South Africa’s premier safari destinations. Four hours drive from Johannesburg this reserve covers an area of over 680 KMsq and is home to all of the Big 5, as well as the elusive wild dog and over 300 bird species. A big advantage of Madikwe is that it is malaria free.

After four days of safari, you will return to Johannesburg and board your flight to the sparkling Indian Ocean beaches of Mauritius. For the next week, relax amidst the warm hospitality, white sand beaches, exclusive facilities and excellent water sports that Mauritius is renowned for. Mauritius is renowned for its larger upscale resorts and the Residence Mauritius is an excellent choice with its spa, swimming pools, tennis courts and plenty of opportunity for diving, snorkelling and sailing.

This holiday is a tailor-made itinerary. Our South Africa specialist will be delighted to discuss alternative options if you have a hankering to visit Cape Town, safari in Kruger or upgrade any of the hotels.

  • Everything worked perfectly! We all found our trekking experience to be the best part of our adventures in Morocco. We were particularly pleased with our guide, Hussain; he did a brilliant job. He is thoughtful, knowledgable, and sweet. He represents you well.

    MissingJacob Moffat reviewing Atlas Valleys & Villages Comfort Treks on 09 March 2017

  • Thanks for organising an excellent holiday for us. It's my first time using Tourdust and I've been really impressed and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. You provided an excellent level of service all the way through, and the bespoke nature of the trip was fantastic whilst being really good value for money.
    Key highlights:
    - Le Kasbah de Toubkal blew us away - one not to miss!
    - The trek was amazing and my kids loved it. The camping was really fun, the food was excellent, and I'd particularly call out our guide Rashid who was fantastic show especially with my kids.
    - Riad Adore was outstanding - far exceeding my expectations - it was beautiful and we were very well looked after
    - Le Doux Tour was luxurious and a nice relaxing way to end the holiday.
    - Logistics were great and our main driver Mustapha was brilliant

    If there was one build / thing I would change, it's a very small one but some candles / lanterns to use in the evening whilst camping would have made it easier to stay outside for a bit longer.

    MissingMark Dilley reviewing Boutique Marrakech & Atlas Mountains on 07 June 2016

  • Truly another world. The sky was enormous and the summits snow covered. Blue irises, wild herbs and fruit trees flowered on the slopes. Even as I toiled up the dry river bed I gazed in admiration.

    Without exception, everyone was courteous and welcoming. Food was good ( and far too plentiful); accommodation clean. Above all-everything worked! A pick-up was promised for 9.00am. At 8.55 the doorbell rang. Impeccable.

    No praise is too high for the organisation and staff. I am definitely going back.
