Indigo Bay
Indigo Bay Island Resort and Spa is an exquisite honeymoon destination situated on Bazaruto Island, the largest island in the Mozambican archipelago of the same name. It offers visitors the quintessential Indian Ocean island holiday as well as a gateway to the unspoilt beauty of the surrounding area.

The largest of the archipelago islands, Bazaruto is one of Africa's premier scuba diving destinations. Divers are able to see over 100 species of coral, thousands of tropical fish species, five kinds of dolphins, four whale species and sharks, all five marine sea turtle species and the largest population of the rare dugong or manatees on the African east coast.

Owned by Rani Resorts, Indigo Bay offers world-class, understated luxury, with its elegant design making the most of its superb location on the white-sand shores of Bazaruto. State-of-the-art facilities include restaurants, bars, swimming pools, specialist dive pool, and an activity centre, which co-ordinates a wide variety of water sports, as well as diving and fishing activities.

With its tropical climate, unspoilt scenery and wealth of activities on offer, Indigo Bay is the perfect getaway for you on your honeymoon.

On Bazaruto Island Rani has built community centres, implemented AIDS and malaria prevention programmes, provided transport facilities and access to water for local islanders and stimulated the establishment of community market gardens to supply fresh produce to Indigo Bay. The education and training needs of local people remains Rani's focus with the building of schools and initiating adult literacy programmes.

Also on Bazaruto Island, Rani has formed a partnership with local communities to conserve the ecosystem and assist the Bazaruto National Park staff with transport, communication and health care facilities. Monitoring the location of turtle nesting sites, teaching the importance of conserving local marine life and working with the authorities to counter illegal fishing activities is a priority as well as implementing a tag and release policy for fishing activities in conjunction with Durban's Oceanographic Institute (ORI).

Making the most of its superb location on the shores of Bazaruto Island, Indigo Bay Island Resort & Spa blends in harmoniously with its surroundings. Constructed of natural materials like reed, thatch and wood, you can choose between twenty nine Beach Chalets, one beachfront Honeymoon Chalet, twelve luxury Bay View Suites, one Presidential Suite and one Bay View Honeymoon Suite (Matema Suite).

The lodge also has a Fitness Centre and Wellness-Spa, as well as an onsite scuba diving instructor who can assist you from beginner courses to more advanced reef diving.

You can enjoy seafood dinners at the Golfinho Restaurant, or have a cocktail at the Neptune Bar, featuring original walls dating back to early Portuguese traders and overlooking Indigo Bay. If things get too hot, you can cool off in the Tartaruga Wet Pool Bar.

Bazaruto Island is approximately 37km long and up to 7km wide, and is part of the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park, one of the largest conservation areas in the Indian Ocean.

You can enjoy an extensive range of spa treatments at Indigo Bay brought to you by the renowned Sanctuary Group. The resort's 1,300 sqm spa offers five treatment rooms, as well as an ice pool, wet room, hydrotherapy pool, health bar and relaxation areas to pamper even the most jaded city soul. Treatments include Swedish massages, milk baths, body brushes, body wraps, hot stone therapies, reflexology and facials, all designed to impart African energy, goodness and vitality.

Therapists are on hand to pamper you with frangipani extracts from Elemis or indigenous Cape Fynbos from the Moya range, which blends chamomile, geranium, snowbush, lanyana and buchu to provide an African antidote to modern living.

Garonga
Garonga Safari Camp is an exclusive 14 bed camp in the greater Makalali Conservancy situated west of the Kruger National Park. This unassuming sanctuary promises a more intimate wildlife encounter in an unhurried environment - somewhere where you can unwind, sleep deeply and be yourself.

From the second you are greeted at the huge sculpted gates and admire the North African inspired architecture, Garonga's uniqueness is tangible. Hot towels refresh you after the dusty drive and after a cool passion fruit cocktail you feel life's pressures melt. There's no urgency to jump in a jeep, hurtle round the bush and madly tick off animal sightings. There's plenty of game to be viewed from your strategically placed hammock.

All activity is geared to your time-scales, not the camp's. No one will care if you ever make it outside the camp gates until the day of your departure. Relax, snooze, sunbathe, daydream and be pampered all day long in the most tranquil and breathtaking of settings. And for those seeking an intimate bush experience 'sleep-out' excursions under the stars can be arranged. As English owner Bernardo Smith so rightly says, Garonga is a "safari for the soul".

The accommodation at Garonga Safari Camp reflects the surroundings of the bush - textured earthy colours and clean lines have been incorporated with fine linen to ensure pure comfort, a tempting place to lie and meditate for hours.

Garonga's holistic philosophy is to offer an unhurried and intimate wildlife encounter - a time to reflect and find inspiration in nature. You can either try your hand at every activity the camp has on offer, or you can do simply nothing at all - lazing in the hammock with a good book while watching the grazing impala.

Activities Include:

• Game drives
• Wilderness walks
• Sleep-outs
• Outdoor bush-baths
• Aromatherapy
• Reflexology sessions

Garonga offers a true safari in a pristine wilderness. The wide variety of game at Garonga ensures that you are pleasantly surprised at what they see, as well as how close the animals are when they are sighted.

There is plenty of interaction with you when looking for game. Guests are encouraged to follow the tracking experience (almost as exciting as seeing the game) whether by vehicle or on foot.

The camp encourages you to interact with your environment as much as possible, taking a deeper understanding of wilderness away with you.

The Tented Rooms are situated on a dry riverbed - each with a wooden deck that commands spectacular views. The rooms are spacious, with large, draped beds. In addition to the indoor shower, there is an outdoor shower that flows outwards from the luxury of the room, providing a continuous link to nature.

At Garonga, they are also passionate about their cuisine. From gourmet meals traditionally taken in the dining area, to boma dinners with the turning night sky above you, to picnic baskets specially packed for a leisurely game drive, you will appreciate both the food and the surroundings in which it is served. To complement both the gastronomic feasts as well as the superb dining room scenery (both indoors and out), the Garonga wine cellar specializes in offering high quality South African wines, making every meal at Garonga an unforgettable experience.
