At Sabi Sands you will be able to witness wildlife – from lions to elephants – in one of Africa’s best-preserved wildlife parks. At Belle Mare, Mauritius, you will be surrounded by 25 acres of tropical gardens, bordering the world’s most welcoming ocean.

Together, South Africa and Mauritius form one unbeatable vacation.

  • Although we bothered Lydia on several occasions over small matters, she was always patient and very helpful. The whole organisation from Heathrow and back was seamless and first class. Game watching on this trip surpassed all that we had seen before in the one trip. Our thanks to Ultimate yet again
