When you think of Africa, what do you think about? Is it waking up in the mornings and enjoy some morning refreshments before going out on a morning game drive or Lying on endless stretches of undisturbed sand on some of the most remote beaches in Africa?
With more than 50 countries to consider, its not hard to see why one can find themselves spoilt for choice as far as making a decision about where to go on holiday in Africa can be quite daunting. Africa is incredibly diverse and you can experience different cultures, languages, plants, animals and topography in every individual country. The African coast has come into contact with many different cultures over the centuries, each leaving exotic colours and traces of spices in their wake.
The African coast is as varied as the enormous continent of Africa itself. Each of Africa’s beach holiday destinations offers something unique to the traveller while remaining distinctly African.
A great place to visit would be Zanzibar. Even as it grows in popularity with travellers, Zanzibar remains a rustic paradise. Large parts of the Zanzibar islands with names like Mafia Island, Pemba Island and Mnemba are thankfully still untainted, offering you the chance to experience an exotic and authentic Indian Ocean island holiday.
As if that isn’t enough, the diving in Zanzibar is considered to be some of the best in Africa and diving sites around the islands offer an underwater safari to rival even your most memorable wildlife safaris.
Beach safaris aside for those looking for a romantic safari, its important to note that, true romance is more about the exotic than it is about the picture perfect. This insight is crucial when thinking of a romantic African safari.
Spend your Zanzibar romantic safaris lying on the beach, scuba dive or snorkel in colourful turquoise waters and then set out on any number of exciting activities.
Swimming with dolphins, Dhow cruises, cultural visits to ancient sultan palaces and walks through spice forests, a romantic safari in Zanzibar will sate every sense and seduce even the most sensible of romantics.
Another great African tour destination is Mauritius. The Island is a honeymooners paradise of endless seaside, water sports, golf courses, luxurious suites, extravagant spa treatments and only the highest standards of service – a honeymoon of pampering from start to finish.
If you are one of those in search of a more private island honeymoon, then you may want to visit one of the unspoilt islands of the Seychelles.
Take intimate walks together along your very own secluded shoreline – or if you can afford it have an entire island to yourselves.
This slow-paced tropical hideaway with its lush-green vegetation and one of the best diving marine ecosystems in the world, is bound to turn up the honeymoon heat.
Sabi Sands Reserve is a beautiful area south west of South Africa’s most famous National park Kruger. Not only can one enjoy some of Africa’s most stunning and beautiful scenery as well as its wildlife, but one can get to sip South Africa’s delicious wines, get first class spa treatments and yes! enjoy gourmet food.
