BEACHES & ISLANDS
Africa is so much more than just a safari destination. It has some real hidden secrets throughout, and the incredible beaches on offer are certainly one of them. Mozambique, Zanzibar, Pemba Island are just few examples that spring to mind.
Safari Beach holidays are a favourite for many. There’s nothing better than finding yourself kicking back in a hammock with a cocktail after having had 4 or 5 days on safari. From exciting big game – viewing and sleeping in savannahs under the African night sky, to walking down white sand beaches covered in crystal clear waters is an awe-inspiring experience.
Zanzibar's beauty is that it not only offers palm-fringed beaches and outstanding diving but also a unique Arabian and Swahili history and culture. It is also the most popular Indian Ocean Island with which to combine with an East African safari.
Mozambique is very different to the other destinations in the Indian Ocean. There are no large resorts it is an off-the-beaten-track beach destination offering unspoilt barefoot luxury. A true castaway experience, the beaches are remote, the eco-lodges are small and the activities are largely nature-based. In fact, Mozambique is often considered to be one of the best coastlines in the world – and is without doubt one the best diving spots.
Beach holidays are also on offer in South Africa with its expansive, wild coastline as well as the Kenyan and Tanzanian mainland coast.
For something really unique, lounge on the beaches of Lake Malawi after a safari in Zambia.
Even if you’d just like to hit the beach, you can. The great thing about the beaches in Africa is they’re not as commercialized as other destinations, which gives them an authenticity, a rustic stripped back luxury that is so hard to find in this day and age.
Mauritius provides an incredible selection of superior hotels, exquisite cuisine and diverse and varied activities. If you are travelling with young children the Kid's Clubs on offer in Mauritius are amongst the best in the world.
Likewise the islands of the Seychelles offer true exclusivity with some incredible private island getaways to choose from. The beaches of the Seychelles are known for being amongst the most beautiful in the world and this is coupled with high quality accommodation offering facilities for families and couples alike.
