South Africa and Mauritius - Safari and Beach

This wonderful holiday truly combines the best of both worlds with a safari in the Madikwe Private Game Reserve followed by an 8 night stay on the beautiful island of Mauritius with its white sandy beaches and warm tropical waters.

Madikwe is a lesser known and therefore quieter game reserve in northern South Africa on the border with Botswana with an abundance of game including the Big Five. It is also home to the endangered African Wild Dog who are very rare but who have been thriving in Madikwe thanks to strenuous conservation efforts. You stay at the Bush House Lodge which is a small and intimate safari lodge with its own waterhole and in a great location for game viewing.

You will then head off to the Indian Ocean for 8 nights in a wonderful beach resort for some true rest and relaxation. Mauritius boasts some world class beaches with soft white sand and crystal clear, warm seas. If you can tear yourself off the beach there are plenty of things to do including scuba diving, dolphin spotting, island excursions and lots of watersports as you might expect.

The Real Africa Trust works with leading conservation organisations to raise awareness as well as raising funds for specific projects. Partners include Save the Elephants, Save the Rhino, The Sheldrick Trust, Rhino Conservation Botswana and Animals saving Animals. You can find out more on our Conservation pages. On behalf of every client travelling, Real Africa makes a donation to the Trust.
