What is African Beach Safari?

There really is nothing like wrapping up an Africa safari with a few days on the beach for an unbeatable blend of excitement and relaxation. An African Beach Safari involves trips to historical sites, marine activities like snorkeling, sailing and scuba diving. However, if you are looking to wind down after a dusty game drive you can go for yoga and meditation or enjoy a sundowner on palm-fringed beaches and coves.

Spend the afternoon acclimatising to the African wilderness then after tea, head for a game drive in search of the ‘Big Five’ and other mammals and birdlife that roam the vast plains.

On the second day, enjoy early morning and late afternoon game viewing drives.

Among the days, you have an option to go on a full day game drive with packed lunch to enjoy in the ‘bush’.
