Day 1
Arrive at Johannesburg Airport and check in at the Federal Airlines kiosk situated in the Bus terminal behind the Intercontinental Hotel. From there you will be transferred to the Fedair Terminal for your light aircraft flight to the beautiful malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve.
 
After checking in to your lodge, enjoy your first thrilling safari drive in an open-top game viewing vehicle accompanied by a lodge ranger. Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately in this vast game sanctuary. Hopefully you will see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even wild dogs - as well as several of the Big Five today. Then dine under the stars in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
 
Soft bags only - rigid suitcases can be stored at the Fedair terminal.
Days 2 To 3
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day, as you enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing drive with your lodge ranger in the Madikwe Game Reserve. Explore the vast plains, which offer magnificent game viewing and the opportunity to search for all of the Big 5 - Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino - before returning to your lodge for breakfast.
  
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the swimming pool or enjoy bird watching, before setting out again in the late afternoon for another game drive. With numerous different species of mammals and reptiles in the park you can hope to see cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, sable antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons, wild dogs and many other interesting animals. Outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed!
  
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
 
Children < 6 are not allowed on open top game drives

Days 6 To 7
Relax and enjoy the beauty of Mahe, the largest island in the Seychelles and home to the capital town of Victoria.
 
Enjoy snorkelling or diving to view the tropical fish and coral reefs that surround this island, with whale sharks visible from August to October. Wildlife centres around the sea birds and abundant marine life - including leatherback and endangered hawksbill turtles, sperm whale (July/August), dolphins, octopus and many other rare and endangered species. There are also many wonderful walks around this island, ranging from the easy trail to Glacis Trois Freres, to the much tougher hike to Mare aux Cochons.
