Deciding on where to go for your beach extension can be a really tough decision. However, a few factors should help you to narrow down your choices – namely, location of your safari, time of year you are traveling, and budget. As a general rule, I’d say that if you’re travelling to East Africa then your first choices should be Zanzibar or the Kenyan Coast, and if you’re traveling to Southern African then Mauritius and Seychelles should be your top picks. That said, every itinerary is different, and it’s best to run through your preferences with your safari specialist.
Now I’m going to describe each of the beach destinations, to give you a little more information about what to expect from the area. Under each section, I list all of the safari destinations that the beach area can be combined with.
