South Africa & The Seychelles

Itinerary Overview

This 13-night itinerary gives you the best of safari and beach experiences, taking in exciting game drives to view the big five in South Africa’s Sabi Sabi Game Reserve before moving on to relax on the white sandy beaches of the Seychelles. With it being essentially only a two-centre itinerary, the travel time is not exhaustive, each step of the way carefully planned to maximise on your enjoyment and relaxation. It’s not always about ticking all the must-do boxes, sometimes it’s about the enjoyment of place and simply getting away from it all.
