Get the best of both worlds with a Safari and Beach holiday

It’s odd, only years ago, there were parts of Africa where that you couldn’t access easily, now small planes can take you to whatever area you like and because there has been improved travel (no more long train and bus journeys), the range of holidays is enormous.

Africa can offer a unique safari and beach holiday, not only does it means you can see the migration as it occurs, but you can top off a safari with a superb week by a paradise-like beach.

If you love animals, and you love a typical relaxing beach holiday, a safari and beach holiday could be the option for you. Various areas have various migration periods so it’s important to choose the right time for you and your needs.

If you want to get the best of both worlds, make sure you next holiday is a Safari and Beach holiday, you won’t come away disappointed.

Researching your Holiday before you leave

So many people will book a holiday solely on price, and then arrive home with many complaints, one of which may be ‘they said it was a 4 star’.

Each hotel with have its own star rating, especially if your booking with an international travel agent, but to get a true idea of your hotel, undertaking research is vital. Popular sites like Tripadvisor can provide a true indication of your hotel, especially in the review section.

Reading the comments made by people who have stayed at the hotel, we feel, is vital. Listen to what they’ve got to say, they may warn you about something important or provide you with valuable information.

Looking at photographs is also important, and not just the enhanced photographs published by the hotel itself. Knowing the area and the town is also imperative, there are so many people who come back of a holiday and someone will ask them where they stayed, and they just won’t know.

A great deal of money is spent on holidays and make sure you select the right one. Information is out there to be found, so ensure you don’t come home with a list of complaints.

Stag and Hen Holidays

Arguably nothing prompts a holiday like a wedding, and no we are not talking about the honeymoon. Holiday’s in Europe are extremely affordable, and occasionally the prices are comparable to vacations in the UK, making stag dos and hen dos very popular abroad.

It’s fair to say that when going away, the best man or head bridesmaid has a lot more planning to do than they would if it was held in their town, or country for that matter. But holiday websites can help organise the activities on your behalf, though there will be less freedom when it comes to activities and destinations.

Rather than beach holidays, staying in cities like Paris, Berlin, and Amsterdam, can provide something different, and make it one to remember. For extremely cheap trips, going off peak can make a huge difference, and if it’s possible we recommend spring, preferably not when kids are off school.

For those who want to be really adventurous Thailand is a popular alternative to European destinations, but there will be an increase in price. And it is important to remember that the honeymoon should probably top the stag and hen party, so try not to blow the whole budget on a pre-wedding holiday.
