Go on safari in Limpopo before a relaxing break by an Indian Ocean beach

The 'big five' roam freely – often within sight – of the locally rated 4-star, African-style and comfortable Lakeside Lodge. Set on the banks of the vast Entabeni Lake, the classic thatched, stone-built retreat offers seven magnificent game drives to ensure you don't miss a thing on this small group holiday. During your second week relax at your seaside hotel, the newly refurbished Blue Marlin close to the shops and cafes of peaceful Scottburgh. Enjoy the subtropical climate, an unspoilt beach lapped by the Indian Ocean, and a wealth of things to see and do, including wildlife safaris, bird watching, golf and water sports…
