Example Itinerary

Day 1-5

MADIKWE GAME RESERVE, South Africa

  • Enjoy lantern-lined private bush dinners under the stars, sheltered by an ancient acacia tree

Located in South Africa, this reserve is home to a great variety of wildlife and birdlife in the surrounding rocky hills, grasslands, forests and dam.

Begin your holiday in one of South Africa’s lesser-known parks, the hidden gem of the Madikwe Game Reserve. Here you’ll spend four nights at Kopano Lodge, an intimate and remote lodge with private plunge pools and spectacular bush views – perfect for honeymooners. Enjoy your safari experience in the Madikwe, home to the Big Five, on twice-daily game drives and immersive bush walks with expert guides. Whilst at the lodge, hear the distant roars of lions and spot birds fluttering overhead from the wooden decking. In the evening, get cosy around the log fire and look out over the views of open plains.

Day 5-6

MAHÉ, Seychelles

  • Soak up simple luxury to recuperate after a day of travelling
  • Explore the diverse flora at Victoria Botanical Gardens

This is the largest Seychellois island in the archipelago and is famous for its gardens, Creole architecture and markets in the capital of Victoria.

Once your South African safari has come to an end, take a flight to Seychelles. Your first stop will be a night’s stay at Eden Bleu, located on the exclusive Eden Island off the east coast of Mahé. This light and airy hotel is the perfect base to rest your head before waking to the excitement of Silhouette Island. Relax on The Empereur Terrace and soak up spectacular mountain views whilst swimming in the infinity pool. If you wish to stretch your legs, explore the nearby boutiques and marina, as well as Victoria Market and Botanical Gardens.

Day 6-11

SILHOUETTE, Seychelles

  • Hike to Ramasse Tout, the only place in Seychelles where you’ll see volcanic rocks
  • Take snorkelling excursions to spot the marine life around the island

The third-largest granitic island in the archipelago, Silhouette is home to dramatic peaks, white pristine beaches lined with palm trees.

Head to the paradisiacal Silhouette Island by boat, where you’ll spend five nights at Hilton Labriz, located beneath the peak of Mount Dauban where tropical palms meet the Indian Ocean. Set within a marine national park, spend your days on land walking along 2km of white sand, inspecting the flora and fauna, trekking through luscious jungle and visiting the islands Grand Tortoise Sanctuary. With a hugely inviting tropical underwater haven, immerse yourself into these turquoise waters whilst snorkelling or scuba diving. Indulge in a treatment at the Aquum Spa, hidden beneath coconut trees and set within large granite boulders. On your final day, head back to Mahé by boat and spend the day with your local guide discovering the highlights of Victoria, before departing for your flight home.

The Speelmans

We had a wonderful stay at Alphonse. It was fantastic – we went out fishing and easily caught loads of fish. It was perfect for the family too, and my daughter Lucy started her PADI there. The weather was great the whole time and we really couldn’t fault a single part of our trip.
