Coronavirus: a message to our customers
If you are due to travel shortly, we will be in touch to support and guide you in either postponing or cancelling your holiday, based on current Foreign Office advice and your insurance arrangements.
 
We hope that international travel will resume soon, but to ensure you can still enjoy a holiday this year, we have introduced the following new initiatives:
 
(a) For all new 2by2 Holidays we have relaxed our Booking Conditions, with refundable deposits & later final payment dates. This will allow you to plan your next long-haul holiday with more confidence, despite coronavirus uncertainties.
 
(b) We have launched Auriel Holidays – dedicated to finding you a range of wonderful holidays closer to home. Working with like-minded tour operators, who know their destinations intimately, safety is uppermost in everyone's minds. Our holidays within the United Kingdom and Europe will be mindful of this, and can be tailor made to your exact requirements - whether travelling by road, rail, sea or air.
 
After three months of hibernation, we are more than ready to start dreaming again!

Warm regards

Claire Farley, Managing Director

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.
 
You will be met at the Federal Airlines terminal and transferred to your hotel conveniently situated near Johannesburg Airport.
 
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.
Day 5
Make your own way by free hotel shuttle or on foot (depending on location of your hotel) to Johannesburg Airport for your onward flight.

You will be met at Mahe Airport and transferred to your hotel in the spectacularly beautiful Seychelles.
 
Check in and relax on this paradise island, surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters and coral reefs.
Days 6 To 7
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.
 
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.
 
An optional full day snorkelling excursion is available to Sainte Anne Marine Park. Tropical fish inhabit these coral reefs, where dolphins are sometimes seen, as well as sperm whale (July/August) and whale sharks (August to October). Leatherback and endangered hawksbill turtles nest on some of the beaches in December and January, with hatchlings emerging in March and April.
 
You can also take an easy 1.5-hour guided hike through beautiful Morne Seychelles National Park, ending at Anse Major Bay. From here cruise by boat to secluded Baie Ternay Marine Park for some swimming and snorkelling. There are many other wonderful walks around this island, ranging from the easy trail to Glacis Trois Freres, to the much tougher hike to Mare aux Cochons. Scuba diving, deep sea game fishing and horse riding are also available.
Day 8
Today we recommend an optional full day island hopping excursion to Praslin and La Digue, two of Seychelles most enchanting islands.
 
Transfer to Mahe harbour and depart by boat to Praslin, the second largest island in the Seychelles archipelago. Here we visit Vallee de Mai, a UNESCO world heritage site where the unique Coco de Mer palm tree and the rare black parrot are found. Afterwards swim & snorkel at renowned Anse Lazio beach and enjoy an included lunch.
 
We continue to La Digue, with its quaint harbour and famous Anse Source d'Argent beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world with its huge granitic boulders and clear turquoise waters. In the late afternoon we return by boat to Mahe.
 
Note: Take your swimming costume, towel, sunscreen & insect repellent. Excursion departs Monday to Friday. Min 10 people on the day to guarantee departure.
Day 9
Transfer to Mahe Airport for your flight home.
