Overview

White beaches and clear blue waters form the backdrop on our 14 Day Discover Mozambique tour. We will whisk you away from Johannesburg to Kruger National Park. Experience the thrill of being on safari, observing the big five as well as zebras, giraffe and rhinos and be inspired by an authentically African atmosphere in the largest game reserve in South Africa. On our way to Swaziland we first enjoy the sights of the Panorama route and we will visit the highlights of Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the Three Rondavels and God’s Window. Enjoy an epic game drive in Hlane Game Reserve. Hlane offers a selection of activities and the Rhino Game Drive is highly recommended. No visit to Swaziland would be complete without an introduction to the rich culture of the Swazi people. We make our way to the surfing paradise of Tofo, where you can swim with whale sharks and dive with manta rays. We continue to the Bazaruto archipelago in Mozambique where you can take a dhow safari and snorkel in aquarium like conditions. Don’t forget to gorge yourself on ocean fresh seafood while sitting on a white sand beach soaking up the sun. Our final road trip takes us back to Johannesburg. Excludes Activity Package: R3600 per person and single supplement.
