Experiential luxury travel company &Beyond specialises in creating intimate moments in some of Africa and India’s most spectacular locations. To celebrate Valentines’ Day, &Beyond is offering a romantic Grand South African Safari package for couples to spend some quality time alone in desert luxury. Couples can immerse themselves in the vibrant soul of Africa in bustling Johannesburg, relaxing at a boutique hotel with decadent four-poster beds and massive bay windows that look out onto lush, tree-lined gardens. The Big Five adventure awaits at &Beyond Ngala Tented Camp, where guests will then experience the magic of African nights beneath canvas, with the sounds of the bush lulling you gently to sleep.
Search for the tawny flash of a leopard’s fur in the riverside thickets, watch elephant splash and drink at a watering hole as the sun begins to set or enjoy a private al fresco dinner for two in the spectacular setting of a dry river bed. From here, guests can move on to diverse &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, set near the coastline of KwaZulu-Natal.
Tucked into your spacious suite at &Beyond Phinda Vlei Lodge, guests can watch a seemingly endless succession of wildlife parade past their windows to a popular watering hole. Marvel at the elegant lines of the cheetah as you watch a mother teach her cubs how to hunt, lose yourself in the silence of the rare sand forest or float along the waters of the Mzinene River as the bush comes to life in the quiet hours of dawn. Upon returning to the city, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular ocean views, rugged mountains and laid-back lifestyle of Cape Town. Couples can relax on pristine sandy beaches, stroll the bustling streets together or explore some of the Winelands most intimate and beautiful wine estates on a private tour.
The Grand South African Safari is available until 30 November 2014 from AU$5975pp sharing.
