Map & Destinations
Kruger National ParkThe world-renowned Kruger National Park is the largest game reserve in South Africa and is definitely one of the must-visit destinations in South Africa. This is a wildlife sanctuary like no other, offering magical unpredictability and endless wilderness that is the true quality of Africa. This is the land of baobabs, fever trees, knob thorns, marula and mopane trees underneath which lurk the Big Five, and more species of mammals and birds than any other African Game Reserve.
MozambiqueMozambique is a southern African nation whose long Indian Ocean coastline is dotted with popular beaches like Tofo, as well as offshore marine parks. The Bazaruto Archipelago farther south has reefs which protect rare marine life including dugongs. The current capital, Maputo, is known for its diverse architecture, vibrant nightlife and relative proximity to beaches like Ponta do Ouro. Inland, Gorongosa National Park’s forests, wetlands and savannahs shelter wildlife including lions, hippos and zebras. In Niassa National Reserve, near Tanzania, animals including elephants and wildebeest live in the wild.
Santa Maria PeninsulaDiscover this wild, untouched piece of land jutting into the Indian Ocean on the eastern side of Maputo Bay, close to Inhaca Island. Indulge in world class fishing, exquisite bird sightings, and mind-boggling snorkeling. The Santa Maria Peninsula is one of the best Mozambique holiday destinations that offer all year-round satisfaction.
