With double the excitement, a safari and beach family holiday is like two holidays rolled into one. It’s the chance to combine an action packed African wildlife adventure with blissful relaxation on perfect, tropical Indian Ocean beaches.
MALARIA-FREE BIG FIVE
A short hop from Johannesburg, the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve is where you’ll kick off your family safari. Game drives take place at dawn and dusk in search of elephant, wild dog and lion. Exceptional rangers will have the children fully engaged in natures great classroom as soon as you know it; collecting insects, learning to identify animal tracks and learning why a giraffe’s tongue is blue. Each day in the bush brings adventure, with plenty of time to relax too. Recount the days adventures around the evening camp fire before dinner is served under the starlit African night sky.
A lunchtime flight gets you to Mauritius in time for evening cocktails with the sand between your toes. With shallow turquoise waters and powdery beaches framed by emerald peaks, this paradisiacal island gives a welcome as warm as the weather. Indulge in refined luxury at one of the world’s finest resorts, taking time to doze by the pool or try your hand at water sports as the kids enjoy making new friends and immersing themselves in fun themed kids’ clubs.
