Taking in two of Kenya's most impressive wildlife areas, this itinerary offers an outstanding safari in scenic Samburu and the plains of the Masai Mara before the chance to relax on Kenya's beautiful coastline while offering excellent value for money.
Africa for every type of traveller
For many, Africa conjures up images of wide open plains, dramatic skies and animals kicking up dust as they move across the savannah, constantly with one eye on their prey. While it's safari that draws the crowds, Africa is a vast and varied continent with so many different experiences to be had. Whether you're a wildlife lover or a culture vulture, in search of a romantic getaway or a family adventure, this magical land has something to offer every type of traveller. Here are a few of our favourite itineraries from across the continent, ranging from Ethiopia to South Africa and into the depths of the Indian Ocean.
Our top picks for first-timers are Kenya and Tanzania, as they boast abundant wildlife and combine well with Zanzibar, creating the classic safari and beach combination that is on so many bucket lists. Both countries also offer the opportunity to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration too – a natural phenomenon like no other.
Safaris for serious aficionados
Once you’ve experienced Africa's wild and rugged allure, it’s hard to shake it off. But where should you go if you’ve already ticked off the Masai Mara, Serengeti and Kruger? Gorilla trekking in Uganda and walking safaris in Zambia are among our top picks for travellers planning their second, third, fourth, or tenth safari, or even first-timers looking to take the path less travelled.
While safari might be what draws most visitors to Africa, there is plenty of culture on offer for those who want a less wildlife-focussed journey. From the rich history of the KwaZulu-Natal battlefields in South Africa to the 12th century rock-hewn churches of Lalibela in Ethiopia, Africa has a rich history and a wealth of experiences for travellers keen to explore the continent's unique cultural heritage.
South Africa is a fantastic family holiday destination, with activities to suit all ages and a number of easily accessible, malaria-free safari options. Namibia is also very family-friendly, with endless expanses of open space for children to roam free. Load the kids into a 4x4 and take them on a road trip on which they can kayak with seals and scale sand dunes.
From remote bush breakfasts, to spectacular sundowner spots and sleep-outs under the stars, an African honeymoon promises to be unforgettable. Opt for Tanzania so you can hop straight over to Zanzibar to relax in island paradise, or combine Kenya's iconic safari offerings with the idyllic Indian Ocean beaches of the Seychelles.
