Day 1
You will be met at Durban Airport and transferred to your hotel on the warm North Coast, renowned for its wonderful beaches and excellent holiday weather.
  
Check in and relax on the shores of the warm Indian Ocean.
Day 2
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.
Days 3 To 4
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day and enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing safari with your lodge ranger in your Zululand Game Reserve which is home to all the Big Five - lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino. Hope to see many other interesting species too, before returning to your lodge for breakfast.
 
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.
 
Note: children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives
Day 5
After final early morning game viewing in Zululand, transfer 4-hours to the warm Durban North Coast, renowned for its wonderful beaches and reliably warm holiday weather all year round.
 
Relax in your lush sub-tropical surroundings on the shores of the warm Indian Ocean.
Day 6
Transfer to Durban Airport for your onward flight.

You will be met at Mauritius Airport and transferred 1-hour to your beach resort.
 
Check in to your hotel, settle in and relax on this warm tropical Indian Ocean island, surrounded by sparkling turquoise waters and coral reefs.
Days 7 To 12
Enjoy lazy days relaxing on the white sandy beaches of Mauritius.
 
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.
 
Dolphin-watching catamaran cruises are very popular, as well as glass-bottomed boat rides to view the surrounding coral reefs swarming with tropical fish. Golf and horse riding are available, as well as bicycle hire to allow you to explore the island independently.
 
You can visit vibrant Grand Baie, with its pubs and nightlife and shop in the capital city of Port Louis, where you must expect to bargain vigorously. Or join one of many fascinating day tours that explore the history and nature reserves of the island.
Day 13
Transfer 1-hour to Mauritius Airport for your flight home.
