Today transfer 4-hours to your private Zululand Game Reserve, renowned for its outstanding wildlife.
  
After checking in to your lodge, game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately and hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even giraffe - as well as several of the Big 5 - before dining under the stars in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.

The rest of the morning is free to relax by the lodge swimming pool, before setting out again in the late afternoon for another game drive. Hope to see cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, sable antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons and many other interesting animals. With over 500 different bird species, bird watching is also outstanding.
 
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.

Days 8 To 11
At leisure to relax on the pristine beach of your lodge on Mahe, the largest island in the Seychelles, and enjoy swimming, snorkelling and kayaking in the crystal clear turquoise waters. Diving, deep sea game fishing and horse riding are also available.
 
Mahe island is home to the capital town of Victoria, where you can visit the beautiful Botanical Gardens which has indigenous giant tortoises that live for over 200 years - longer than any other creature on our planet. You can explore the island on an optional day tour that visits the fresh produce market with its wonderful array of spices and fresh fish, walk past 'Big Ben' and drive along the scenic San Soucis Road to the ruins of the missionary school at Mission Lodge (originally called Venn's Town), with wonderful views over the island.
