If you’re struggling to decide on whether you want a relaxing, luxurious beach holiday or the exciting, adventure of a safari holiday then why not choose both?
At Africa Travel we understand the different needs of our customers and appreciate that everyone is unique. That’s why we cater to your individual specifications to get the holiday that you truly deserve, giving you the best of both worlds with a safari and beach holiday in Africa.
Why Beach and Safari?
Simple, you get two holidays in one. Doing something different is always fun and being on a safari in Africa is one of the best experiences you can ask for. We offer a wide range of safari accommodation to provide you with everything from romantic getaways to family holidays, in areas where you can see all of Africa’s best wildlife.
Despite how amazing this holiday is, you can’t beat laying on a pristine beach and indulging in some much needed rest and relaxation. Get away from it all and enjoy some of the world’s best soft golden sands around the coast of this great continent. You’ll be lavished in luxury, providing you with an entirely different experience to the safari and essentially giving you a second holiday.
Sounds great. Where should I go?
South Africa and The Seychelles
South Africa and The Seychelles gives you the best of safari and beach experiences, taking in exciting game drives to view the big five in South Africa’s Sabi Sabi Game Reserve before moving on to relax on the white sandy beaches of the Seychelles. With it being essentially only a two-centre itinerary, the travel time is not exhaustive, each step of the way carefully planned to maximise on your enjoyment and relaxation. It’s not always about ticking all the must-do boxes, sometimes it’s about the enjoyment of place and simply getting away from it all.
Begin your trip in the Kenyan capital. Stay at the award-winning Kicheche Laikipia camp for 3 days which is situated right in the heart of the bush amongst 90,000 acres of wilderness. Get up close and personal with black rhino, elephants, cheetahs and lions in their natural habitat. Situated at the foot of a forest overlooking a waterhole, you’ll struggle to find a more authentic safari experience.
Next, experience something completely different with a 5 night stay at the luxurious Serena Beach Hotel. With an ice-cream parlour, swim-up bar and even a hair salon on the menu, all your needs will be taken care of. When it comes to catching the rays, the large swimming pool overlooks an expansive beach with the most gorgeous aquamarine water and ivory sand.
Zambia and Malawi
Your holiday will begin on the banks of the Zambezi River close to the scenic Victoria Falls. You’ll stay at the Tongabezi Lodge which is made up of unique houses and cottages boasting their own private terrace.
A trip to the stunning nearby waterfalls is also not to be missed. It is the only waterfall in the world with a length exceeding 100m and is widely considered to be the world’s largest. Other activities include canoeing and boat excursions.
On your 5th day you’ll journey to Nkwali Lodge which overlooks the South Luangwa National Park- the park is famed for its intense concentration of animals and wildlife. Dine with a view of the lagoon where animal guests drink and reside and enjoy delicious, banquet style dinners out under the stars.
After 4 days of guided walks, game drives and evening relaxation you’ll depart for your next destination: Lake Malawi.
Be pampered with traditional food, relax in the infinity pool and enjoy sunset cruises on a traditional dhow. And if you’re after more adventure, take advantage of scuba diving courses and kayaking activities. Sheer paradise.
Start Planning your Adventure
There’s much more to Africa than just a safari holiday and this is something that a lot of people on holiday here don’t understand. When you go on a dual holiday like this, you gain a much greater appreciation of what Africa is all about and you’re able to see much more of the country.
This is terrific for people who like to explore new locations, appreciate local culture and want to make the most of their holidays. Talk to Africa Travel today to start planning your Africa beach and Safari holiday - call 020 7843 3500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
