SOUTH AFRICA SAFARI AND MAURITIUS BEACH

South Africa safari and Mauritius is the perfect and most popular Bush and Beach holiday combination. Enjoy the exhilaration and excitement of game viewing in the malaria-free Welgevonden Game Reserve, a mountain bushveld reserve with a climate that makes it worth a visit all year round. Welgevonden Game Reserve is certainly one of the finest places to watch wildlife, sense wilderness and touch the spirit of true Africa, with antelope from the largest eland to the diminutive duiker, and cheetah, lion and leopard always close by. Then fly to the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius to relax on a tropical beach. A perfect honeymoon perhaps.
