You will spend three nights here in a world renowned Big Five national park, with the amazing experience of spending one night in a tree house.The remaining seven days of your holiday will be spent on the island resort of Anantara Bazaruto, a location that provides plenty of opportunity to relax on the beach or take part in water based activities such as snorkelling.

Day 1: Take to the Skies
Your holiday begins! Check in at London Heathrow for your overnight flight direct to Cape Town.
Day 2: Welcome to Cape Town
Days 3-5: Penguins, whales and fur seals
With your hire car, explore places off the beaten track, meet the penguins at Boulder's Beach, see if you can spot some whales and fur seals, or drive the scenic route down to Cape Point. Ask Trevoyan to prepare a picnic for you.
In a quiet safe neighbourhood, Trevoyan is within walking distance of some of the best Cape Town restaurants. A short, inexpensive taxi ride/drive will bring you to the V&A Waterfront with its shops and restaurants or to the splendid beaches in Camps Bay and Clifton.
Day 6: It's safari time - fly to the Kruger
After breakfast at Trevoyan, head back to Cape Town in time to return your hire car before checking in for your flight to Hoedspruit, Greater Kruger National Park. Arrive in Hoedspruit and take the one hour shuttle to reach Umlani Bush Camp. The scenic drive is highly exciting! Keep your eyes peeled for the Big Five and so much more.
This is your chance to reconnect with nature in one of Africa's world-renowned, unspoilt wilderness reserves. Timbavati Game Reserve is a private nature reserve that shares an unfenced border with the legendary Kruger National Park.
You will be taken out on two game drives per day, in open top 4 wheel drive vehicles. The morning game drive will leave at dawn and the night drive will leave in the late afternoon. There is always a ranger on stand-by for an optional morning bush walk. On a walking safari you are totally enveloped in nature, spotting things up close such as insects, animal tracks, big game droppings, and huge swarming termite mounds. These small, unexpected aspects of life often make the biggest impression.
Day 7: Sleep in a tree house
For exclusive tranquillity there is a tree house about 2.5kms from the camp overlooking a dam. You will spend one night here. Home to the Big Five as well as hundreds of other animal species, the Kruger National Park has become South Africa's ultimate safari destination.The camp has deep rooted environmental and community ethos, for which it has won many awards, and makes for a true African safari experience.
Day 8: Spend the day out on safari where there's always something new to discover.
Return to Umlani Bush Camp for your last night at the Timbavati Wildlife Reserve.
Day 9 : Fly to Mozambique
