foreword

Imagine being able to see the largest land animal on the planet and the largest in our oceans on the same trip.

Imagine being able to see on the same trip a leopard with its prey on top of a tree and a leopard shark lying on the sandy bottom after an active night hunting.

Imagine being able to see the 'King of the jungle' and the largest predator in the sea on the same trip.

It is those unforgettable experiences, above and below the surface of the sea, that we want to achieve by offering this combination of land and sea.

Three days are the minimum we recommend to get to know a small part of the great extension of the emblematic Kruger National Park. We will make a route where we will be staying in different camps within the park, and thus knowing the diversity of fauna and flora that it offers.

 

On the last scheduled day of the overland safari we will have a morning game drive, then cross the border into Mozambique and head to the fabulous Naara Lodge in Chidenguele where we will spend a couple of nights and have our much deserved rest.
In this enclave, kayaks and canoes will allow us to see the fabulous Lake Inhampavala.

The next day, after having 'recharged our batteries', we will head to Praia do Tofo to dive into what we like to call the sea of encounter. 

Get ready for nature in its pure state: whales, whale sharks, sharks, rays, turtles, dolphins, all kinds of tropical reef life...


Where to fly
We recommend flying to Maputo with the TAP airline. This flight arrives early in the morning and gives us time to arrive before the gates of the Kruger National Park close that day. Other airlines that also fly to Maputo are Emirates, Qatar, or Turkish.
Optionally, you can also fly to Nelspruit Kruger Mpumalanga Airport in South Africa via Johannesburg. 
For the return flight, the local airline Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique (LAM) flies from Inhambane to Maputo, where you will spend a final night. If you have flown to Johannesburg, Airlink flies from Inhambane to Johannesburg (in this case the last night in Maputo is not necessary).  

We can adjust the itinerary according to your flexibility and preferences.
From your arrival in Africa until your departure, we will always be by your side to accompany you in this experience.
