Day 1-6 : Zimbali

Guests are met and welcomed on arrival at O R Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and are assisted in transferring to a flight bound for Durban. Guests are met at Durban Airport and travel to the Zimbali Coastal Resort. Zimbali is one of only a few five star resorts situated along the South African coast, and where your Beaches and Big Five Honeymoon starts in earnest. The Zimbali Coastal Resort is a breathtaking 700-hectare estate hidden in a forest setting along a pristine stretch of KwaZulu-Natal's Dolphin Coast. It is a place of extensive beauty and is endowed with lush vegetation and an abundance of indigenous wildlife. Appropriately, its Zulu name means 'valley of flowers'. Guests spend six nights at Zimbali on a bed and breakfast basis.

Day 7-9 : Phinda Private Game Reserve

After breakfast, a three hour drive brings guests to Phinda Private Game Reserve. The reserve is located in the lush Maputaland region of northern KwaZulu-Natal, deep in the heart of a dry sand forest. Phinda borders the Greater St Lucia or iSimangaliso Wetland Park - a World Heritage Site and a rather unique ecological area. Phinda Forest Lodge is a secluded yet modern haven set deep in the heart of the forest. Seven distinct habitats shelter an abundance of wildlife, including Africa's Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and Cape buffalo - and over 380 bird species, while the marine diversity along the nearby coast of Sodwana is said to rival the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Awaken to the sounds of the forest and the graceful nyala antelope grazing in front of your own private viewing deck. Relax in your plush surroundings and observe forest life through your glass-walled cabin.

Guests spend three nights at Phinda Forest Lodge on a full board basis. Two game drives in this Big Five reserve are included daily and are conducted by an experienced ranger and tracker.
