Tour Details

Your adventure begins in a timelessly unspoiled setting with sunset views stretching to distant horizons of the Okavango Delta. Witness the raw, untouched beauty of the open bush, widely acknowledged as the predator capital of the world. The region promises up-close views of unique wildlife and flourishing vegetation and is the only area in Botswana where the ‘Big Five’ can be found. Encounter grazing herds of rare swamp-dwelling sitatunga and red lechwe antelope, as well as elephants that tower over islands fringed with palms. Watch in awe as these majestic beasts submerge neck-deep, swimming through a network of reeds inhabited by tiny frogs of all colours, all under the watchful eye of the elegant African fish eagle. Glide through the maze of channels, islands, and opaque lagoons on a traditional mokoro dugout canoe and enjoy the seasonal beauty of the Okavango Delta.

From the safari of your dreams, you have been whisked away for adventure and pampered relaxation on the idyllic Alphonse Island in Seychelles, where the hotel is the only property on the island! Immerse yourself in the exquisite simplicity of a tropical island paradise to experience the raw beauty of an untouched natural sanctuary, and one of the prime protected ecosystems in the far reaches of the Indian Ocean. Experience flat lunches in the middle of the ocean, sundowner cocktails on the beach, mesmerizing encounters with captivating marine life, and heavenly pampering treatments; all in picture-perfect surroundings that enhance every glorious sensation.

If you are a couple looking for a great getaway, honeymooners seeking the ultimate romantic escape, or a family on the quest for the perfect holiday with an array of activities and adventures, this indulgent package offers unique experiences of a lifetime…
