Gomo Gomo: Game drives & Bushwalk Search for the Big Five and experience wonderful game drives in the early morning when the animals are particularly active and in the late afternoon when the sun paints incredible colors on the horizon. You can also experience exciting night drives to observe rarely spotted nocturnal wildlife.
Welcome to a sub-tropical paradise! The name iSimangaliso means ‘miracle’, which aptly describes this unique place.
Thonga Beach: guided walks, kayaking & sundowners at Lake Sibaya Indulge in an exotic beach experience that is a welcome break from the routine monotony of city life. Explore on guided walks and watch the magnificence of the South African landscape vary from coastal forests to grasslands to beaches. If drifting at level with water is more your thing, grab an oar and settle down in a kayak. The guides may cruise you over to where a hippo or a crocodile is sunning itself. A sundowner on Lake Sibaya can be quite a unique experience as you watch the nocturnal life come alive.
The Bazaruto Archipelago consists of five untouched and idyllic dune islands, strung out in the Indian Ocean’s turquoise waters and ringed by fine white-sandy beaches.

Observe thousands of tropical fish species and hundreds of different types of hard corals, and an array of stunning soft coral ridges. Snorkel in the crystal clear, blue waters at any time of the day and for a nocturnal thrill, try snorkeling at night. This is one extreme experience, memories of which will last you a lifetime.
My wife was very concerned about going to Africa and security issues – mainly with wildlife in our tent! After 3 or 4 days she was loving it and throughout the whole trip we were informed of what we would be doing and at no point were we left alone in transit from camp to camp, camp to airline etc. Staff at all the camps were wonderful and very knowledgeable. People considering their first trip to Africa should consider Enchanting Travels to ensure a great time and get to see all of the key highlights of Africa. We saw loads of animals (big 5+) but in reality this is nature and the tour guides can not just manufacture a rare species if they are not around at that time.
