Blend romance and adventure during your perfect 12-day South African and Seychelles adventure. Indulge in the pristine white sands of your private villa overlooking the Indian Ocean and discover the grandeur of wildlife on immersive safari excursions. Snorkel in search of tropical fish and peer into tall grass to find lounging lions. From champagne dinners beneath the stars to sailing crystal-clear waters, you will bask in romance, wilderness, and wildlife.
Mahe Island – An Idyllic Tropical Island Escape
Land in the Seychelles and there's far more than white sand. While the exotic coastline impresses with its space and vibrant colors, it's often the luxuriant green interior that captures the imagination. Thick mangrove forests rise across rugged cliffs, creating a sense of exoticism and a natural boundary that keeps the beaches private. Settle onto the white sand and the green continues to dominate, trees leaning over the beach and enclosing your private coastal villa. For the next six nights, your romantic atmosphere is based amongst these colors; the tropical opulence of the coast, and the forests that occasionally sing with monkey calls. After the flight, today is about settling into the boutique resort and enjoying these first impressions of Indian Ocean promise.

Africa's natural beauty comes in many distinctive forms, from the Indian Ocean's tropical promise to the wildlife bounty of the savanna. It's discovered on white sand beaches that cascade beneath the green of mangrove forests. Or on the dusty plains dominated by the prowling of a lion pride. Or in the resonant calls of hippos that echo throughout a moonlit night. Differing impressions build as you escape into this natural landscape, a new life celebrated on a 12-day Seychelles and South Africa tour. It's your own personal show, with exclusive and private activities ensuring there's nobody else interrupting your journey through the continent; just the sea turtles, rhinos, and unusual characters that have always called Africa home.
This adventurous romantic vacation is split across two very different destinations. Start on Mahe Island in the Seychelles, where a luxuriant canopy of palms stands above the quiet white beaches. Your villa has direct access to the sand and the first three days provide the serenity and privacy that all romantics demand. It's a chance to be lulled by nature's soft spell and fall into the romance of exotic islands. Then, you explore the Seychelles with three exclusive and diverse half-day activities. Explore a marine safari to a deserted islet, and then sip champagne after snorkeling in Baie Ternay National Park. Get dropped on the near-deserted La Digue and cycle to beaches completely devoid of footprints. Head into the enigmatic forests of Morne Seychellois National Park on a scenic drive that provides spectacular panoramas of the islands.
Now it’s time for a luxury Africa safari vacation, reached via an aerial hop to Johannesburg and then Nelspruit. You're whisked into the Sabi Sands, a private expanse of reserves famed for predatory cats and huge numbers of white rhinos. Elephants trumpet their congratulations, hippos grunt in the pools, and so many famous safari images are available from your private verandah. Three days here offer a serene safari introduction, mixing game drives with nighttime drives and walks into the wilderness. All activities are private and customizable, complemented by romantic additions like moonlit dinners in the bush and champagne picnics overlooking the savanna.
Nearby Mala Mala Game Reserve is one of Africa's most celebrated, a huge expanse of private concession that's reserved for a small handful of guests. It's a safari at its most exclusive, with individualized activities opening up a world of abundant big cat scenes and marauding herds. Both Mala Mala and Sabi Sands share unfenced boundaries with Kruger National Park, bringing phenomenal abundance that complements the wildlife intimacy. From walking alongside kudu herds to finding spotted cats amongst the trees, there's always a new experience on five days of an African safari. Consider learning more about the best African safari tour companies, and see how they are able to craft an itinerary that suits your particular interests and desires.
