African Safari and Beach Holidays
The Best of Both: African Safari and Beach Holidays
Are you torn between a relaxing beach holiday and an exciting African safari? Then why not consider a holiday that combines both? Here at Africa Travel we offer a bespoke service so you can get what you want from a holiday, not what we think you want.
So, if you fancy lazing on the white sands of an African beach one day and embarking on a once in a lifetime wildlife experience the next, an African safari and beach holiday is perfect.
Tanzania Safari and Beach Holidays
Tanzania is home to the most renowned safari park in east Africa: Serengeti. The main attraction here is the Great Migration, which is in fact, the largest migration of mammals in the world. With over a million wildebeest, zebra and antelope trekking south or north (depending on the time of year you visit) the migration in Africa is a spectacle not to be missed.
And that’s not all Tanzania has to offer. Zanzibar is Africa’s paradise and it is here that you can discover beautiful beaches with coconut palms and the bluest of seas. Sounds like something only dreams are made of, right?
For a holiday that’s full of excitement and adventure as well as peace and relaxation, a Tanzania safari and beach holiday is what you need.
Kenya Safari and Beach Holidays
Whilst you often return from a holiday feeling like you need another break, solely to unwind, you won’t feel like that after a safari and beach holiday in Kenya.
In the first half of your holiday you can explore and discover the country that practically made safari holidays a ‘thing’. There are the ‘big five’ to see; giraffes, hyenas, cheetahs, crocodiles and hippos. The term was coined by big-game hunters because these animals are the five most difficult to hunt on foot!
The second half of your trip can involve nothing but pure relaxation at some of the best beaches in Africa; just what you need after watching amazing animals thrive in their natural habitat.
Mozambique Safari and Beach Holidays
Mozambique is able to offer you the ultimate holiday. How? Well, with picture-perfect, sandy beaches complete with turquoise water, as well as wildly beautiful safari parks such as Lugenda Wildlife Reserve and Selous Game Reserve, you can enjoy the two very different sides of Mozambique.
This means you’ll feel like you’re getting the best of both holidays out of your trip: the most relaxing beach experience and an exciting safari. What more could you want out of a holiday?
A Mozambique safari and beach holiday promises a truly unforgettable trip.
South Africa and Mauritius Safari and Beach Holidays
For a holiday that truly enables you to unwind, yet still provides you with the most exciting safari experiences, Mauritius is your best bet.
We would suggest you combine Mauritius with South Africa. Kruger National Park is one of Africa's largest game reserves, therefore there will be plenty of opportunities for you to spot The Big Five on safari. Of course, Mauritius is renowned for being a paradise so you’ll have no trouble switching off whilst lounging on the stunning, sandy beaches of one of Africa’s most beautiful islands.
The Seychelles and South Africa Safari and Beach Holidays
A safari and beach holiday in the Seychelles is a match made in heaven. Instead of dithering between two dream holidays, you can experience both of them in one trip.
The beauty of holidaying in the Seychelles is that you can do absolutely nothing, yet still have the time of your life. This tiny island is so breathtakingly beautiful that even if you just relax in the sun or splash in the sea, you’ll still have a truly enjoyable trip. It is the Seychelles, after all.
However, before spending dreamy days on the sand, you can embark on thrilling adventures in South Africa’s Sabi Sabi Game Reserve and enjoy intimate encounters with amazing animals.
Madagascar Safari and Beach Holidays
The world’s fourth biggest island has a plethora of things to offer. With deserted beaches for you to relax on, as well as the popular reserve Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Madagascar makes for the perfect holiday for both tranquillity and adventure.
Andasibe-Mantadia National Park is best known for its vast lemur population, therefore you’re guar-anteed to see various species of lemur whilst you explore this park.
Whilst you’re making the most of the beach hideaways in Madagascar, you’ll likely to come across nestling turtles and playful dolphins. Madagascar is nature’s paradise and it will no doubt be yours too.
