In this program we combine a photographic land safari in the Kruger National Park, and a few days of diving in two locations in Mozambique, Ponta do Ouro and Praia do Tofo. We recommend this combination between the months of December and May, since it is a good season to see the much desired sharks in Ponta (up to 6 different species can be seen in the same dive).

We recommend a minimum of 3 days 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, and thus knowing the diversity of fauna and flora that it offers.
For more information about the Kruger National Park and how we offer safaris, click HERE!

Once our experience in the African savannah is over, on the fourth day we cross the border and head to Ponta do Ouro, located 5 hours away by road, and where we dive for two days in search of sharks.

The last destination of the trip is Praia do Tofo, located 10 hours north by road, so we spend a night halfway at the fabulous Naara Lodge in Chidenguele.

We recommend flying from the destination of origin to Maputo with the TAP airline. The arrival forecast is early in the morning, which gives us time to arrive before the gates of the Kruger National Park close that same day. Other companies that also fly to Maputo are Emirates, Qatar, or Turkish.
Optionally, we also recommend flying to Nelspruit Kruger Mpumalanga Airport in South Africa via Johannesburg. This airport is located just 45 minutes away from one of the gates of the Kruger National Park.
For the return flight, we recommend you fly with the local airline Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique (LAM) from Inhambane to Maputo.

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

Arrival at Nelspruit Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (South Africa) or Maputo International Airport (Mozambique). We will be waiting for you there, and after the necessary steps at the airport, we will travel by road to the Kruger National Park (KNP, in South Africa).
