This is the ultimate itinerary for the eco-conscious family looking for an ultra-luxe, exclusive safari and beach experience in two neighbouring African countries.
Cheetah Plains, Sabi Sands, South Africa, is a pioneer in the eco-safari class offering an 'off the grid' African experience with sustainability being the forefront of the guest experience. The private houses harness the power of solar to provide families with a reliable, renewable energy source and make use of grey water systems to conserve water supplies.
After the children have been educated on the African bush intricacies, escape to the beautiful Benguerra Island, off the coast of Mozambique. Located within a Marine National Park, Benguerra Island offers deserted beaches of pure white sand and sparkling turquoise seas.
Azura Benguerra, the first eco-friendly resort in Mozambique, was hand-constructed by the local community and is operated in partnership with them. Mozambican hosts look after your family's every need. From dining on freshly caught fish and seafood to a terrific range of activities and experiences for all ages, Azura Benguerra is an enchanting island escape for the whole family.
