Enjoy a romantic holiday getaway with that special someone to the famous Kruger National Park in South Africa and the soft sandy beaches of beautiful Mozambique. Escape off the beaten track where you are surrounded by nature and receive personal attention from your hosts, making sure that this holiday or honeymoon is truly memorable.
Once you arrive at Lukimbi Safari Lodge you will be welcomed and made to feel at home by the staff. The main Lukimbi Safari Lodge building welcomes you with its sweeping staircase and artistic fireplace with creatively engraved animals. Our tasteful lounge overlooks the Lwakahle River where animals often come to drink, and the bar nearby has an award-winning wine list and cellar. No detail has been omitted in our unusual African boma, a favourite outside fire-lit venue. We also move our tables around in and outside our elegant restaurant and on our stunning deck, so you can enjoy different views on different days – a detail our guests often remark upon.
In the late afternoon head out on your first game drive led by experienced local guides on a private concession on the world renowned Kruger National Park. Head out in search of the famous Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant) as well as many other species of game. The guides will help you unlock the secrets of the bush. Stop off in a scenic spot and partake in the oldest of safari traditions – a sundowner! Then return to the lodge for a delicious meal.
This morning you can enjoy getting to explore the African bush on foot during a walking safari. The guides will teach you how to track animals and tell stories about animal behaviour. Learn how you could survive in the bush while spotting wildlife. Then return to the lodge where you can relax by the swimming pool or indulge in a spa treatment in the tranquillity of the bush.
Days on safari follow much the same rhythm. Up early once more with the sun to go game viewing when the animals are their most active so easier to spot. Followed by a delicious breakfast and time spent relaxing at the lodge during the heat of the day. In the late afternoon you will continue your fascinating discovery of Africa’s wildlife.
This morning you will be driven to the airstrip where you will catch a flight to Massinga Beach lodge. In the Inhambane Province of Mozambique, Massinga Beach sits above a stretch of endless, remarkably private beach overlooking the azure Indian Ocean. Far from the madding crowd and offering barefoot luxury, the Lodge caters for honeymooners, romantics, families and those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
A Beach Bar and pool nestled right at the edge of the warm sea provide comfort, and drinks to sun-lovers. Nearby the boulders that have been artistically chiselled by the elements provide a unique feature and shade for secluded picnics.
Comfort is a priority in the Ocean Front Deluxe rooms that open onto an intimate deck and splash pool from which to absorb the 180°view of the coastline. The Ocean View Junior Suites, also with unimpeded views of the sea, are designed with families in mind.
Wake up to breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean. Go for a stroll on the sandy beaches before a lazy breakfast. You can head out on a diving or snorkelling expedition to see some of the diverse species that call the reef home or enjoy a refreshing swim in the ocean.
Today, you might try your hand at kayaking in the secluded bays while taking in the scenery or join in with some guests in a game of beach volleyball. Grab some bicycles and go on a slow ride through the nearby Massinga Village where you can watch a demonstration of coconut cutting. The day is yours to do as much or as little as you please. Perhaps the massage table beckons instead.
Days blend into one another as the slow pace of coastal life takes over. Head down to the beach, go cycling or kayaking or just spend some time working on the perfect holiday tan. Its your day to do as you please.
This morning after a last tasty breakfast arrangements will be made to take you to the airport for your onwards travel arrangements.
