Your tailor-made safari & beach family holiday to Seychelles & South Africa

Marataba-Safari-Lodge-Little-Guest-Slide-4 Family-Time-on-Beach thumb_Family-walk-near-Belle-Etoileweb

This unique safari and beach family holiday combines two game reserves in South Africa with two islands in the Seychelles. In essence you will move 4 times but each move will offer a totally different experience for the family. In South Africa your safari will take place in the Waterberg region (3 hours north of Johannesburg) at two lodges, Ant's Nest and Marataba Safari Lodge. At Ant's Nest expect exciting activities such as horseriding alongside zebra, giraffe and other animals, fishing, guided walks, archery, rhino tracking and bug and spoor walks.

At Marataba Safari Lodge, situated in a private Big 5 game reserve, the family will stay in large tented suites nestled in the bushveld with animals regularly wandering past your deck. Experience exciting family game drives as well as surprise meals out in the bush.

An easy flight will bring you to the main island of the Seychelles, Mahe, for a stay at the luxurious Constance Ephelia Resort offering a Kid's Club, a huge choice of land and water sports; including zip line through the tree canopy, as well as two beaches.

By contrast Denis Island, your last stop, is all about the natural island experience - nature and wildlife discovery, including interaction with Giant Tortoises. Activities are largely snorkelling & kayaking. Here you won't find a signal for your mobile phone when you arrive. There is no in-room internet and no television. This is the chance for you and the children to unplug from digital distraction and reconnect to the loved ones you hold dear, and to the earth that you share with them.
