Day 1
You will be met at Johannesburg Airport and escorted to the Federal Airlines kiosk situated in the Bus terminal behind the Intercontinental Hotel. From there you will be transferred to the Fedair Terminal for your light aircraft flight to the beautiful malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve.
 
After checking in to your lodge, enjoy your first thrilling safari drive in an open-top game viewing vehicle accompanied by a lodge ranger. Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately in this vast game sanctuary. Hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even wild dogs - as well as several of the Big Five today. Then dine under the stars in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
 
Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft, you can take only soft sports bags that will fit into the aircraft baggage pods, with a maximum weight of 20 kg that is strictly enforced for safety reasons and not exceeding 16 x 12 x 24 inches (40 x 30 x 60 cm) in size. You can also take 5 kg in hand luggage. Rigid suitcases can be stored at the Fedair terminal in Johannesburg free of charge.
Days 2 To 3
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day, as you enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing drive with your lodge ranger in the Madikwe Game Reserve. Explore the vast plains, which offer magnificent game viewing and the opportunity to search for all of the Big 5 - Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino - before returning to your lodge for breakfast.
  
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the swimming pool or enjoy bird watching, before setting out again in the late afternoon for another game drive. With numerous different species of mammals and reptiles in the park you can hope to see cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, sable antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons, wild dogs and many other interesting animals. Outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed!
  
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
 
Note: Children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives at most lodges, but child-friendly lodges are available on request.
Day 4
Enjoy a final early morning game drive in Madikwe Game Reserve, before your light aircraft flight to Johannesburg.

Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft, you can take only soft sports bags that will fit into the aircraft baggage pods, with a maximum weight of 20 kg that is strictly enforced for safety reasons and not exceeding 16 x 12 x 24 inches (40 x 30 x 60 cm) in size.

Swim and snorkel in these sparkling turquoise Indian Ocean waters, participate in a wide variety of water sports and savour fine Creole cuisine - especially the superb seafood.
 
Mauritius offers wonderful scuba diving in its calm clear waters, so this is the ideal opportunity to learn if you have never tried before, with many PADI dive centres. Deep sea fishing is also outstanding, in waters regarded as the best for marlin in the world.
