Kruger Safari and Mozambique Island Family Holiday

Inspirational safari & beach family holiday to South Africa and Mozambique

The perfect safari and beach family getaway. Combine a family-friendly, Big 5 safari in a private Kruger reserve in South Africa with a stay in a private villa in beautiful Mozambique. First up a stay at Shimungwe Lodge in the private Timbavati Game Reserve. Here, you will enjoy twice daily game drives with expert rangers and incredible game viewing. Timbavati Game Reserve shares an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park. This area is known for excellent Big 5 game viewing which your children will be amazed by. After your South African safari adventure, you will catch a direct flight to Mozambique where you will spend 7 sunny days at Santorini Mozambique, offering the feel of a small Greek village in the heart of a raw African landscape. The kids will love stand-up-paddling right in front of the villa or kayaking a little further out. There's also daytripping to the islands and snorkeling amongst the abundant colorful fish and coral reefs of the archipelago. Or simply float around the pool on pool pillows and create sandcastles on the raked beach beneath the villa.
