A classic combination, this wonderfully exciting holiday throws you into the raw rugged wilderness of the Kruger National Park before a road trip / commercial flight takes you north into Mozambique and to the beachside bliss of Machangulo Beach Lodge.  This 11 day itinerary takes you to two lodges with superb locations, both utilising their surroundings to provide you with a wonderful African experience and unforgettable holiday memories. 

After landing into Johannesburg you will connect to your flight to the Kruger National Park. On arrival you will be met and transfered to Mjejane River Lodge for your three night stay. With no fences between the Kruger National Park and the Mjejane Game Reserve, the animals of the South African wilderness envelops the lodge.

Perched along the banks of the flowing Crocodile River, Mjejane River Lodge has the perfect location for you to watch the thriving animal population of the area from the comfort of your lodge. All are equipped with private patios overlooking the river, the watery habitat attracting all forms of fauna looking to quench their thirst. The passing parade of animals includes elephant, buffalo, hippo and wild dog along with the big cats of lion, leopard and cheetah. Make the most of your time in one of the greatest wildernesses of the world with twice daily game activities.

Take to the road crossing the border into Mozambique and to the capital, Maputo, where you will be transferred by boat from the marina to Machangulo Beach Lodge. An unspoiled and mysterious place found along the Southern Mozambique coastline, it perfectly captures the dramatic nature of the crashing open Indian Ocean meeting the estuaries of Maputo Bay. Hidden amongst the sand dunes, encircled by pristine golden beaches and untamed natural forests, the surroundings of the Machangulo Beach Lodge provides you with a host of activities. The friendly and welcoming staff are eager to help you organise your time spent in paradise.

Discover the culture of Santa Maria Village, snorkel the exotic underwater world or, if you are lucky, take a seasonal whale and turtle nesting excursion. Or simply grab a beach towel and hammock from the Beach Bar and set up camp on the immaculate coast line watching the crashing waves of the Indian Ocean.


Depart London on your overnight flight to South Africa. Flights from your regional airports are available at either the same or sometimes cheaper prices.
Upon arrival into Kruger Mpumalanga Airport, via Johannesburg, you will be transferred to Mjejane River Lodge in the Kruger National Park. A wonderful converted farm holding 10 luxury rooms with a friendly and intimate atmosphere, you will be instantly swept away by the exclusive and beautiful location. It is a fantastic place to encounter your African discoveries, to observe the raw nature in all its magnificence. The selection of your twice daily game activities provides you with an exciting and eclectic way to experience the raw wilderness, from game drives across the Big Five territory to discovering the land on walking safaris, jumping on a mountain bike or going horse riding. In the evening, partake in a sundowner with refreshing drinks, a starlit dinner before gazing at the constellations and sharing stories of the day huddled around the camp fire.
Days on safari, one in the morning, one late afternoon avoiding the mid day heat, when animals will be less active. Mjejane Reserve is situated in the southern most sector of the Kruger National Park and is incorporated within the park itself. This means that the safari experience is not hindered by the end of the Kruger Park and the start of Mjejane. With a total of 18 rooms, this intimate lodge has all there is to offer ensuring a magical safari experience.
Staying at   Mjejane River Lodge
Easily accessible from the lodge, you may opt to do an interaction with Elephants, learning about this amazing giants, tour the Panoramic route, visit the famous Jane Goodall Institute or enjoy a round of golf. The Lodge has a lovely swimming pool which in summer is a welcome treat!
Staying at   Mjejane River Lodge
After breakfast, leave South Africa and cross the border into Mozambique by road into the capital Maputo. From here you will take the 45 minute boat journey to Machangulo Beach Lodge. A secluded paradise beach destination, the quietly opulent chalets of Machangulo Beach Lodge are equipped with a gorgeous bedroom and a private deck, a comfortable haven to retreat to at the end of the day. The lodge has a welcoming inviting lounge, bar and dining area with the outside Boma area a favourite place amongst the guests to relax and enjoy the boma fire. Celebrate the intriguing culture of the country, visiting the Santa Maria village and exploring the delightful fusion of Africa and Portugal, take a trip to the petite subtropical Inhaca Island or travel back to the mainland to the capital of Maputo. Appreciate the stunning tropical nature of the island, taking to the sand and ocean for fishing, scuba diving, snorkelling and beach picnics.
Your view from your room is of course an Ocean view and you are a mere 2 minute walk from the beach and 1.5 minute walk to the pool. If you are not taking part in the water activities, why not relax in the spa? Go fishing, bird watch or Kayak around the lodge.
Leave behind beach bliss for the airport and your overnight flight back home.
Land in London or your regional airport.
