Many people like to combine their time on safari with a few days by the beach. After all the excitement and exhilaration of your safari in the bush, some time relaxing in equally beautiful coastal surroundings is perfect! Imagine yourself sitting back on powder soft white sands listening to the sound of the calm, sparkling, turquoise ocean in front of you with your favourite novel in one hand and your favourite chilled cocktail in the other.
Africa and the Indian Ocean islands have some truly exquisite coastlines, with some wonderful beach properties to match. There’s something for everyone who wants to mix beach and safari. Perhaps you’re looking for a large yet stylish hotel with lots of facilities? Le Telfair in Mauritius would be the perfect choice. Comprising twenty spacious and chic villas, there’s an 18-hole golf course, tennis court, spa and lots of opportunity for water sports. Families looking for a more relaxed environment might like Kinondo Kwetu on the Kenya Coast. This superb coastal hideaway refers to itself as a ‘home from home’ where you’ll eat delicious, fresh meals al fresco on the beach. There are two pools and tennis court and there are opportunities to go riding, fishing, snorkelling and boating.
Depending on where you travel to for the safari portion of your trip, you could combine it with a short Zanzibar, Kenya coast, Mozambique, Seychelles or Mauritius holiday.
