African Safari Holidays

The first big question in considering your African safari holiday (an African Safari Vacation for our American friends)  is Eastern or Southern Africa...  Eastern Africa (including Tanzania and Kenya) is home to the magnificent annual Great Migration, and many of Africa's most iconic and scenic destinations, including the Serengeti Plains, the Ngorongoro Crater, the Masai Mara and Mount Kilimanjaro.
Eastern Africa is very well-suited to itineraries which combine safari with an element of beach lounging, either on the mainland coast or on one of the idyllic paradise islands which scatter the coastline.  The best known such island is Zanzibar but there are many others to consider; the Mozambique coast is also an exciting up-and-coming destination with some fabulous new beach lodges which we are watching with interest.

Southern Africa includes Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia, and offers a huge range of safari experiences, from horseback safaris in the Okavango Delta in Botswana to hardcore walking safaris in Zambia.  Why not add on a few days in the wonderful and vibrant city of Cape Town, or at the majestic Victoria Falls?

The range of Africa's majestic wildlife and scenery are truly breathtaking; most visitors are absolutely captivated and find that one visit simply isn't enough.  Many travellers find themselves drawn back year after year for another fix of grand wilderness and nature at its biggest and rawest - and no two visits to Africa are ever the same!  Each trip is a truly memorable experience.  As such, Africa is an outstanding destination for honeymooners with adventurous spirits.  Especially popular are honeymoon itineraries which combine a safari adventure with some relaxing down-time on a glorious Indian Ocean beach.  

Families can also be catered for brilliantly - if you choose your itinerary carefully, Africa can provide fantastic shared family experiences and memories for a lifetime.  A wide range of activities are available to suit all tastes (both while on safari and separately), including bush walking, horseriding, fishing, boating, hot air ballooning, diving, kite surfing, shark cage diving and swimming with dolphins...

We are absolutely passionate about Africa and about introducing others to this wonderful continent.  Whatever stage you are at in considering your African adventure, come and talk to us about all the various options...  We love nothing more than creating fabulous itineraries which suit each individual client perfectly.
