Safari Itinerary Summary

Days 1 to 3

On arrival into Livingstone you will be met and our driver will take you to Tongabezi Lodge set on the banks of the Zambezi River.

Spend 3 nights in a Luxury Cottage, fully inclusive.

This is the perfect tranquil spot to explore the Victoria Falls and to gently begin your safari with excursions out on to the river to observe crocodiles and hippos!
Exceptional service is the hallmark at this privately owned and run exquisite lodge. Delight in island lunches, social, hosted meals or romantic candlelit dinners all served with the attentive care in which Tongabezi prides itself.
Lodge activities include: sunrise and sunset boat trips on the Zambezi, guided canoeing excursion depending on water levels and hippo activity, lunch on a local island with guided walk, fishing, visit to the Victoria Falls on the Zambian Side, game drive to the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, walk in the gorge below the Falls, cultural visit to the Livingstone Museum, a local village excursion or just spend lazy days by the pool.

Days 4 to 6

Take a Private Road Transfer to Livingstone Airport for your flight into the Kruger.
You will then take a light aircraft journey to Ngala Private Reserve in the heart of the Timbavati Private Game Reserve on the boundary of the world renowned Kruger National Park. On arrival at the airstrip, you will be met by your guide and transferred to your lodge.

Enjoy a 3 night stay, fully inclusive at Ngala Safari Lodge. Accommodation is in a classic thatched cottage with an ensuite bathroom and cosy verandah.  Each cottage exudes a romantic colonial ambience with nostalgic safari memorabilia throughout.

Ngala Private Reserve is well known for its high densities of elephant, buffalo and rhino, as well as for African wild dogs. Ngala guarantees exclusive game viewing opportunities over 15000 hectares. Activities include twice daily game drives including exhilarating spotlit night drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles with expert guides and Shangaan trackers and at the guide's discretion a one-hour nature walk accompanied by experienced armed trackers.

Dine in style in the elegant candlelit courtyard or enjoy an African feast around the blazing boma fire. As the swimming pool and sundeck overlook a waterhole, you can watch for game from the water, browse the safari shop or perhaps experience a massage from the comfort of your cottage.


Days 7 to10

Safari in the morning and be on the beach in the afternoon!.. You will fly directly from the Kruger to Vilanculos, Mozambique and from there take a helicopter transfer to the Bazaruto Archipelago and Benguerra Island Lodge, surrounded by turquoise Indian Ocean waters and white sandy beaches.
Activities offered at Benguerra include sea kayaking, sunset dhow cruises and village visits. There is a fully equipped PADI dive centre offering snorkelling excursions, fishing charters, horse riding and castaway picnics and island expeditions.
