Day 1-3: Arrival / Sabi Sand

Once you’ve arrived in Johannesburg and have cleared customs and immigration, you’ll find a
representative from African Sky waiting for you as you enter the arrivals hall. First, we’ll
take care of a few formalities. Once formalities are completed you’ll then be escorted to the
appropriate departure terminal where you’ll be assisted in boarding a local flight to Hoedspruit,
a small tourism and agriculturally orientated town in the central Lowveld just outside the
famous Kruger National Park. On arrival, you’ll be met and transferred to your overnight accommodations
in the nearby Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Here you will have the opportunity to experience the
romance of the African bush first-hand. After an exhilarating first-afternoon game drive, enjoy
a delicious meal around a roaring campfire under the starry night sky. Arathusa is one of the
more secluded lodges, affording guests a very relaxing and intimate African bush encounter.
Guests will spend three nights here. Two game drives in open 4x4 vehicles are conducted daily
by experienced rangers and trackers in search of the legendary Big Five and the many other
mammal, plant and bird species which grace this wilderness area.

Day 4-6: Livingstone

After breakfast guests are transferred to Kruger Mpumalanga Airport for a flight to Livingstone in Zambia. On arrival, guests will be transferred to the David Livingstone Safari Lodge on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River near the majestic Victoria Falls. The ideal location of the lodge means that the majority of rooms overlook the Zambezi River, providing honeymooners with the opportunity to view animals from the comfort of their room. Enjoy a refreshing sundowner while taking in the breathtaking sunset from your private patio, after which you may relish an evening meal on the deck around the pool. Revel in the tranquility of the African bush as you embark on a leisurely romantic cruise on the river . Guests spend three nights at the David Livingstone Safari Lodge.

Day 7: Chobe National Park

After a decadent breakfast the honeymooners will be transferred to Chobe Game Lodge, situated in Botswana's Chobe National Park. Each room has its own private veranda with a view of the Chobe River. Guests will spend three nights in the intimacy of the African bush and may enjoy two Chobe National Park safaris each day. They will take the form of either an open 4x4 safari in the park or a romantic game viewing boat cruise on the Chobe River. Guests are accommodated on a full board basis.

Day 8-9: Chobe National Park

Your activities in Chobe alternate between daily open 4x4 game drives in the park - for the
most part keeping reasonably close to the river - and water-based game viewing on the Chobe
River, arguably the single most rewarding wildlife activity on offer in Southern Africa today.


Chobe National Park finds itself at the core of the Kavango–Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation
Area, a cross-border conservation effort formally established in 2011 and incorporating an
area of approximately 444,000 sq. kilometres (171,000 sq. miles) of African wilderness. The
region spans five countries and sixteen national parks - including the Okavango Delta - and
is without doubt home to Africa’s largest elephant population (an estimated 207,000 animals).
The initiative aims not only to protect the region’s wildlife, but also the livelihood of its
rural communities, particularly folks who find themselves in daily conflict with animals such
as lion and elephant, which destroy livestock and crops and pose a threat to human lives.

The Chobe riverfront where your lodge is located is a hive of wildlife activity, one of a handful
of ‘must see’ hotspots on the African continent. The riverfront is an ’eco-system within an
eco-system’, with large daily back-and-forth migrations as animals move into the surrounding
woodland during the day to feed, only to return again in the late afternoon to quench their
thirsts. The floodplain, close to the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi rivers, is an oasis
in an often harsh and unforgiving environment. Hundreds of hippos, large Nile crocodiles and
an incredible variety of birdlife are just some of the animals encountered here. The floodplain
is home to Botswana’s only population of puku antelope. Elephant herds numbering in the hundreds
are regularly seen during the late afternoon, sometimes swimming across one of the many channels.
Close encounters are all but guaranteed. Buffalo often wade across to the perennially green
islands in search of better grazing. Lions, spotted hyenas, wild dogs and leopards are sometimes
sighted along the riverbank. Many species of antelope including the impressive sable are common.
Giraffe, zebra, impala and wildebeest are frequently sighted on game drives. A lucky few will
find themselves witnesses to a ‘kill’. With the golden hour of late afternoon sunlight coming
from just the right direction, a game viewing cruise on the Chobe River is about as perfect
a location as any wildlife photographer could ever hope for.
