Several members of the team here have either lived, worked or were brought up in Africa, and we revisit our existing properties and new lodges on a regular basis and work with only the very best guides to bring you the ultimate beach and safari holidays.

Holidays are a precious commodity so often it’s a real battle between choosing to spend said precious holiday time relaxing on a beach and getting away from it all, or doing something a little more action-packed, like a safari.
Well, why not have the best of both worlds: a safari and beach holiday? Experience jaw-dropping wildlife before jetting off to the beach for some much-needed R&R; like jeans and a white shirt, fish and chips, wine and cheese, Ron and Hermione (controversial), an African safari and beach holiday is a match made in heaven.
One of the ultimate bush and beach destinations is Tanzania; see jaw-dropping wildlife in some of Africa's best national parks and reserves (wildebeest migration in the Serengeti, anyone?) before heading to the tropical idyll of Zanzibar, where you'll find pristine beaches and a selection of excellent hotels. Kenya is also a great option for combining with the beaches in Tanzania. With over 50 national parks and reserves there's no shortage of magnificent beasties on show, in fact the Masai Mara is home to one of the densest concentrations of wildlife anywhere on earth
