Safari & Beach
The perfect combo
A safari and beach holiday is hard to beat. Imagine waking to sun rise for a thrilling game drive across vast African plains, then, like a seamless transition, you're whisked away to an exotic, secluded sandy beach! An unparalleled experience where the allure of adventure meets Robinson Crusoe.
From wonderful savannah to white sand beaches, a safari beach holiday combines excitement, adventure and relaxation in the most dramatic of settings.
What is the best Safari Beach combo?
All our East Africa safaris can be twinned with Kenya's coast or Tanzania's Zanzibar and you don’t even need to fly via a city! There are direct flights from Tanzania’s National Parks straight to the spice island Zanzibar, or you can fly from the Maasai Mara straight to Mombasa on Kenya's coast. You'll be sipping on a cocktail on the beach in no time. Alternatively, if you're craving Indian Ocean comforts, you can fly from Nairobi to the Seychelles or Mauritius.
South Africa combines well with Mozambique and Mauritius, with direct flights operating from Kruger National Park to Vilanculos (Mozambique) and from Johannesburg to Mauritius. South Africa also has beaches, although the Western Cape waters aren’t warm - 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), Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) and Livingstone (Zambia), there is a whole array of options at your disposal. Then there's also Lake Malawi (Malawi); Africa's Ocean.
We understand the draw of the Seychelles and Mauritius, but ultimately our pick would be East Africa. The safari experience here is unrivalled and with simple internal flights to Kenya's coast or Zanzibar at your disposal, there is little need to go further afield.
