Come travel with us through Mozambique and Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s largest nature reserves!


It’s a journey through diverse landscapes, to surf perfect waves off the Mozambican coastline, with many mind blowing experiences along the way!


Our final destination is Tofo, a vibrant little coastal town, where we’ll stay a stone’s throw from the beach. There we’ll offer daily surfing sessions with professional instructors!

Tofo is a surfer’s paradise with pristine beaches and crystal-clear warm water! The waves are ideal for beginners with a protected bay offering sheltered conditions and friendly waves.

En-route from Johannesburg to Tofo we’ll explore the Kruger National Park, one of the biggest nature reserves on the African continent!


We’ll stay on the banks of the Crocodile River and spend two days searching for majestic wild animals living undisturbed within their natural habitat!

Other adventures include an awesome Kayak Trip to a local fishing village and a cultural tour, to meet the locals and immerse ourselves in the local Batonga way of life!

Tofo Fisherman

Boat based whale watching is another incredible experience included in the programme, with lots of wet fun and spectacular sights of breaching whales!

And if we’re lucky we might just snorkel past a Whale Shark or two!
