This Big-Five safari honeymoon flies you directly into the world-renowned Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve (adjacent to Kruger National Park) in South Africa, known for its superb big cat sightings. This is one of the best places to see leopard. Your days here are spent on safari, enjoying the grace and style of a bygone era. You then transfer to the historic Ibo Island in Northern Mozambique. Once an important East Africa trading centre and the Portuguese administrative capital of Northern Mozambique, Ibo Island has a fascinating mix of cultures to explore. The lodge is a renovation of three water front mansions and has charming gardens and pool. At low tide the lodge can take you out to a pristine sand bar, complete with picnic and sun umbrellas. Food here is first class with a focus on fresh seafood. Your final destination is the private Azura Quilalea, located on an uninhabited tropical island. Set within a marine reserve, the diving and snorkelling from the island is superb.
