Safari and Beach Holidays
Africa is where you go for a safari. It's where the concept was born, perfected and the stunning wildlife of Africa's savannahs and rainforests has thrilled and delighted travellers for decades. But there's another facet to Africa that is often overlooked: her amazing variety of beaches and tropical islands.
So here's the dilemma: do you go on safari or do you hit the beach?
Why not do both?
We've put together the best combinations we can think of, taking in classic safari destinations like the Kruger National Park and Botswana's Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park together with sparkling Indian Ocean destinations such as the Quirimbas and Bazaruto archipelagos not to mention that ultimate beach destination, the Seychelles.
Combining these destinations is easier than you might think: modern air travel and slick logistics will have you on the beach the same day that you leave the bush - wake up to the sound of hippos and elephants, go to sleep to the sound of lapping waves and rustling palms.
Who said you can't have the best of both worlds?
