Located in South Africa, the Madikwe is home to an abundance of wild animals and bird species in the surrounding rocky hills, grasslands, forests and local dam.

Begin your trip on a South African safari with four nights at Jamala Madikwe, an exclusive and intimate lodge set in a secluded corner of the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. With a popular water hole in front of the camp, watch as wildlife frequent to your doorstep, providing some of the best game-viewing opportunities from your private verandah. Enjoy morning and afternoon drives in this Big Five wilderness area, and even catch a sighting of endangered wild dogs. Relax in your private pool and celebrate with romantic lantern-lit suppers under the stars.

Day 5 - 12: Belle Mare, Mauritius

Situated on a quiet corner of the island’s east coast, the region of Belle Mare boasts pristine beaches, tropical gardens and lagoons, making it one of the most sensational parts of the island.

Fly from Johannesburg to Mauritius, where you’ll spend seven nights at Constance Le Prince Maurice, located on an isolated peninsula and encompassed by white sand and a sheltered lagoon. This intimate and peaceful hideaway oozes luxury from the get-go, with bedrooms overlooking the water and a floating bar and restaurant with mountainous views. Windsurf, snorkel and paddleboard along the private beach, or head to the nearby championship golf courses.
