For many guests a visit to Africa is either an escape from winter in the northern hemisphere or they use their long summer holiday to have time for extensive travel. For both kinds of travel some time on a lovely beach, to reflect on the bush adventure, is much appreciated.
There is a great choice of beaches to visit during an African safari holiday. Zanzibar might come to mind for many people and the island is ideal to be combined with a safari in Tanzania next to the other lovely islands off the coast of Tanzania like Pemba and Mafia. For visits to Kenya also an entire beautiful coast is awaiting the beach and water activity lover. From Diani Beach over Watamu and Lamu, there are beautiful resorts and cultural sights more than worth visiting.
For safaris in Southern Africa the beaches of Mozambique are an excellent choice. White sand, few people and great nature invite for an amazing beach time with activities like horse back riding and all sorts of water sports. Besides Mozambique also South Africa offers a great choice of beaches along the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean with breathtakingly beautiful landscapes and a great variety of accommodations and activities.
It is not an easy choice with so much on offer. Keep it simple and look what is closest to your safari destination to avoid loosing time with travel.
Happy Africa travel!
