The perfect combination of wildlife adventure in Madikwe and relaxation with a week of beach and sunshine on the tropical island of Mauritius, ideal for families with younger children looking for fun and games to entertain everyone all day long.

  1. Fly to Johannesburg

  2. Days 1-4: Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa

    Enjoy four nights at Madikwe Safari Lodge, ideal for families and a 'home-away-from-home' in the bush. The lodge caters particularly well for children, with specially designed activities such as bush orientation, bug CSI, dung-tracking and a children's den filled with a range of items to keep any active imaginations enthralled. There's also a pizza oven to be used and of course traditional safari game drives to be enjoyed by both children and grown-ups.

    Accommodation: Madikwe Safari Lodge (4 nights)

  3. Days 5-12: East Coast, Mauritius

    Journey back to Johannesburg, where you connect with your flight to the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.

    The Shangri-La's Le Touessrok Resort & Spa is situated on the east coast of the island and offers a luxurious yet relaxed option on this paradise island.

    Rooms look out to the white sand beach and crystal-clear water of the coves which make up this delightful resort. The kids' club has its own clubhouse and welcomes children from the age of 4 to 12. They can enjoy tennis, swimming and watersports, as well as excursions outside the resort. For adults you have the very best conditions for watersports such as diving, snorkeling, sailing, water-skiing and windsurfing so days can be as action-packed or relaxing as you wish.

    The combination of these two fantastic properties ensures a vacation that is fun for the whole family, and can be done in any order you like, still providing a fantastic adventure and huge amounts of enjoyment for all.

    Accommodation: Shangri-La Le Touessrok (7 nights)
