Breathtaking African Safaris And Beach Holidays Revealed

Here are seven African safaris that include beach vacations—the perfect “beach and bush”—to complement the excitement of an African safari.

Experience the thrill of being on the go while taking in all sorts of new noises, sights, and wildlife during lodge hopping and game viewing. Before or after a safari, unwinding on a white-sand beach or other secluded seaside spot allows you to think back on your experiences and get ready for the next adventure.

These beach vacations and safaris in Africa showcase two sides of a destination, providing ideas for your next excursion.

Combining exciting safaris through the wild African wilderness with downtime on a beautiful sand beach is the perfect recipe. The majority of tourists like to begin their safari experience first thing in the morning so they can relax and have a good night’s sleep before facing the challenge of getting up bright and early to see the animals. Everything is up to you, though. Indeed, it is not uncommon for newlyweds to choose to spend some time alone (!), reminiscing about their special day, before embarking on their safari adventure.

However, I leave that decision to you. Choices galore! Combinations include safaris in Kenya and Tanzania and beach vacations in Zanzibar or Diani Beach are very common in East Africa. After a safari in Botswana or the Kruger National Park, relax on the beaches of Malawi or one of the islands off the coast of Mozambique. Additionally, South Africa is home to several picturesque beaches in the provinces of KwaZulu Natal and Garden Rout.

Our recommended African Safari And Beach Itineraries

The optimal time to go on a safari is before sunrise and stay out until sunset so that you may see the most wildlife. A few days of hiking through the bush, though, can drain your energies.

We recommend adding a few days of beach relaxation to your itinerary as a way to rejuvenate after an action-packed safari. It not only broadens the scope of your vacation, but it also allows you to do what you want, when you want.
