9 Day Praslin and Mahe Island Romantic

9 Day Praslin and Mahe Island Romantic

This expedition not only offers game drives through the wild of South Africa and the Tuli Block in Botswana, far away from the crowds but also provides walking and biking opportunities as well. Guided through the eyes of local experts, you will be introduced to a world of wildlife wonders and beyond. With herds of wildlife in the far distance, the silhouette of an ancient gnarled baobab framing the horizon prompted me to quote 'you really know how to find your place in this world in a place like this'.


  • This extravagant 9-day tour combines two of Africa's undisputed holiday highlights: game viewing in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve and beach combing in the Seychelles.
  • Begin your escape in the legendary Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve on a variety of safari activities: the game viewing here is excellent and you'll have plenty of opportunities to spot all the members of the Big 5, even the elusive leopard, sightings of which are something of a speciality in the Sabi Sands.
