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.

  • Thanks for all your help in making the arrangements, everything went so smoothly from landing in Jo’burg to departing a week later.

    We all had a fantastic time, Kirsty (our youngest) was able to go on all the game drives and we were very well looked after both on the drives and back at the lodge. The food was great, staff were all very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them (e.g. providing hot milk for Kirsty at bedtime). The kids all enjoyed the rock pool during the day and we all loved the game drives.

    We were lucky enough to see all the big 5, with the additions of Cheetah & Wild Dogs. I think it was the second to last day before we managed to see some Hippo (and finally I’ve been able to take some photos of them - I have only ever seen them at night before). We had the adventure of being caught up with some Lionesses stalking a herd of Zebra (one of the younger Lionesses went a bit early & scattered the herd).

    We’re certainly aiming to go on safari again although it will be a while before we save enough to go again (maybe the kids will be taking us next time!)

  • Everything was fab, I especially loved Tuningi such a special place and my son got to see his favourite animal the cheetah (after a bit of time hunting about on foot!). Mauritius is lovely we saw quite a bit of the island in the end.

  • I had just the most incredible time on the climb.

    The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.

    George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.
