A day-by-day breakdown of what to expect and where you'll be staying.

Mozambique Magic

Day 1, Johannesburg to Hlane Royal National Park

After leaving bustling Johannesburg and travelling through scenic Mpumalanga, we reach Swaziland and Hlane Royal National Park. The Highveld gives way to Lowveld and to the bush land that wildlife love the most.

Day 2, Hlane Royal National Park

A free day to partake in some of the many optional activities on offer...if you want to.... such as Mountain Biking, Game Drives or a Lion Tour.

Mozambique Magic

Day 3, Hlane Royal National Park to Praia do Tofo

Today we cross into Mozambique and head north through beautiful coastal scenery arriving at our camp in the late afternoon. Feel the heat and humidity turn up a notch but trade that off with the beautiful bush turning into coastal palm trees and white sand. Time to relax on that sand before dinner!

Day 4, Praia do Tofo

Tofo is reputably the best dive spot on the east coast of Africa and Scuba Diving is just one of the many optional activities to keep you busy today. Try fishing, snorkeling, surfing or chilling out on the beach with a cold cocktail.

Mozambique Magic

Day 9, Inhambane

A free day to enjoy some of the optional activities available. Try your hand at Scuba Diving, Quad Biking, Fishing, Horse Riding or take a Boat Cruise on the bay. If that sounds like too much work then just relax on the white sand beaches with a good book or your journal.
