South Africa and Mozambique Family Holiday

Inspirational safari & beach family holiday to Mozambique and South Africa

Adventure and relaxation in equal measure, this South Africa and Mozambique safari and beach family holiday is sure to provide lifelong memories. The adventure starts at Ngala Safari Lodge in the Greater Kruger Park, South Africa’s best safari region.  The children can join you on extraordinary Big 5 game drives or they can be thoroughly entertained on Ngala's Wild Child programme where they will get up to all manner of exciting adventures from learning all about wild animals, to collecting insects and fishing to participating in the interactive kitchen.

After your South African safari adventure, you will catch a direct flight to Mozambique where you will spend 5 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 day-tripping to the islands and snorkelling amongst the abundant colourful 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.
