Whether you’re travelling with the family or are on honeymoon, or want to mix bush and beach, stay in private safari houses or ensure you avoid malaria areas, these types of African safari holidays will ensure you get the African safari holiday of your dreams.
It’s as true today as ever: ‘there is always something new out of Africa’. In this case, we’re talking about the wonderful types of African safari holidays on offer. I’ve been fortunate enough to have enjoyed many of them over the years, so I’ll break them down for you below – just don’t ask me to pick a favourite!
African safari holidays have come a long way since the Victorian era; nowadays, with most of Africa’s hidden jewels unearthed, it’s transcendent moments of beauty and realisation we seek. The Dark Continent retains an authentic sense of adventure and exploration though, and with the various African safari holiday types to choose from, there’s no danger of following a beaten path.
Encountering wildlife in pristine habitats remains a key component of most African safari holiday types, but this needn’t only mean game drives. African beach holidays offer equal parts relaxation and exhilarating marine wildlife experiences, with some of the world’s best diving – or maritime and safari elements can easily be combined on safari and beach holidays.
Depending on who you invite along, you can opt for the undeniable romance of African honeymoon safaris, spending time alone with your partner in beautiful, remote places, or choose family safari holidays with special kids’ activity programmes (including fascinating cultural interactions).
Multi-generational holidays are increasingly popular; here we suggest you choose from our range of delightful private safari houses and villas for maximum flexibility and service. If your travelling companions are very young, then malaria-free safaris are a safer way to introduce them to a continent they’ll be desperate to return to.
