Average time to visit

There is no bad time to go on safari in the Kruger National Park. The experience does, however, change from month to month. In the summer months (October to March), it gets very hot. The verdant vistas are all the more spectacular because of the rains, but this means that the foliage is denser, water is more abundant and game is therefore trickier to see. There are lots of beautiful migratory birds during the summer months. While the daytime temperature in the winter months (May to September) is ideal, it does get a little chilly at night and in the early morning. Southern Mozambique is warm and sunny year round with temperatures averaging 25° C in the winter months (May – August) and over 30° C in the summer months (December - March). Rain is possible from November to March, usually in short bursts. The sea temperature varies with the seasons and currents, and ranges between 22° C and 32° C.

Itinerary

Fly to Johannesburg
Day 1-5

Kruger National Park

On arrival into Johannesburg you’ll connect on to a domestic flight to the Kruger, where your safari begins. Your guide will greet you and game drive you through the pristine bushveld, passing your first sightings of wildlife along the way. You’ll arrive at Jock Safari Lodge, nestled amongst woodland and a dry riverbed. Jock’s location on a private concession allows you to enjoy wildlife sightings with limited vehicles around you, as well as being able to traverse into the national park to get more sightings of big game.  

The next four days are going to be action-packed as you track animals in an open game vehicle and on foot. Feel your excitement build as you come across a pack of wild dog and follow these highly intelligent, fast-paced canines and wait in anticipation for them to begin to chase. Watch a herd of jovial elephants, bathing and playing in the waterhole, just moments from the lodge. Enjoy a gin and tonic in the bush, looking out to giraffe’s silhouetted against the burnt orange sky, as the sun begins to set. 

Accommodation: Jock Safari Lodge ( 4 nights )
Day 5-10

Machangulo Peninsula, Bazaruto and the south coast, Mozambique

This morning after a final morning game drive and a hearty breakfast at the lodge, you’ll be met by your driver for your journey over the border into southern Mozambique. You will arrive at the untamed nature retreat, Machangulo Beach Lodge, your home for the next 5 nights. Staggered along sand dunes encompassed by lush forests, the sweeping views of the forest and Indian Ocean will take your breath away.  Enjoy this untouched paradise at your own pace. Explore the marine reserves surrounding the Machagula Peninsula as you dive into an array of colours and watch scatterings of tropical fish drift by you.  Paddle through the winding estuaries or the offshore reefs by kayak, encountering wildlife along the way. Or sink into tranquillity in the spa and enjoy a massage to the sound of the ocean lapping the shore. 

Accommodation: Machangulo ( 5 nights )
