Safari & Beach

The perfect combo

A safari and beach holiday is hard to beat. Imagine waking up for your morning game drive on the African plains and suddenly finding yourself on a secluded sandy beach. You won't find a better safari combo that is as exotic, exciting, and often necessary.

Where?

Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique and The Seychelles make fantastic beach finishes with simple flight schedules.

When to book?

Earlier the better. Some camps book up over a year in advance, like Giraffe Manor for example.

How much?

Our safari beach itineraries range from £4,000-£10,000 per adult on an all inclusive basis.

From wonderful savannah to white sand beaches, a safari beach holiday combines excitement, adventure and relaxation and really is hard to beat.

What is the best Safari Beach for me?

East Africa

All our East Africa safaris can easily twin with the Kenyan coast (Kenya) or Zanzibar (Tanzania), and you don’t even need to fly via a city! There are direct flights from Tanzania’s National Parks straight to the exotic ‘spice island’ Zanzibar, or you can fly from the Maasai Mara straight to Mombasa on the Kenyan coast. You'll be sipping on a cocktail on the beach in no time. Alternatively, you can fly from Nairobi to Seychelles.

Southern Africa

South Africa combines well with Mozambique and Mauritius, with direct flights operating from Kruger National Park to Vilanculos (Mozambique), and from Johannesburg to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (Mauritius). South Africa also has its beautiful beaches, although the Western Cape waters aren’t warm, so if sea swimming is a must, then you might want to opt for somewhere else. With Johannesburg just a short flight away from Windhoek (Namibia), Maun (Botswana) and Harare (Zimbabwe), there is a whole array of options at your disposal. Then there's always Lake Malawi (Malawi), Africa's Ocean.

Our Pick

We understand the draw of the Seychelles, Mauritius, Maldives, but ultimately our pick would be East Africa. The safari experience here is unrivalled and with simple flights to Zanzibar at your disposal, there is little need to go further field. Keeping it simple often pays off.

What are you after?

This is hard to know at first, so we have put a list of questions to help you start thinking.

  • Do you like the idea of tented camp or permanent lodge?
  • Are one (or both) of you less confident about being on safari? Knowing this will help our thinking.
  • Are you after something extra adventurous like a walking safari or fly camping?
  • Is being connected to wi-fi important? Could be for work or keeping in touch with family & friends.
  • Are you after the best on offer or something within a budget?
  • Is seeing wildlife most important?
Fun Fact
