African Island and Beach holidays

Africa isn't all toothy wildlife and acacia-dotted plains. In fact, Africa is blessed with a spectacular coastline and idyllic tropical islands just off the shore – great for beach holidays and ideal as an add-on to a safari.

There are numerous African destinations famous for beach holidays, each with its own flair and appeal. The beaches of South Africa's cosmopolitan Cape Town are pristine and beautiful, ideal for sunbathing particularly after a bracing swim in the Atlantic Ocean. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean and long sandy beaches flank the east coast of South Africa and is in close proximity to nearby safari destinations.

Mozambique oozes third world charm with a significant Portuguese influence, whist Namibia (on the opposite side of the continent) features desolate landscapes and beaches, with icy water rich in marine life. Kenya and Tanzania have some remarkably beautiful beaches, and strong Arab influences in the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba.

The Indian Ocean islands all have a different appeal .Madagascar for the exploring evolution enthusiast, Mauritius for resorts and watersports and the Seychelles for those looking for exclusivity. These are our favourite African island holiday destinations.

If you are looking to escape the humdrum and bustle of life and recline on one of Africa’s pristine coastlines or remote islands, then have a look at our African Island and beach holiday options below (Warning, this could result in a sudden urge to pack your bags for Africa!)
