How & why to combine your Zimbabwe safari with a beach break…

Wondering why to combine your safari with some time at the beach?!

Here are 5 reasons:
  1. Africa has many fantastic and little known #beach destinations.
  2. The excitement of a #safari and it’s early starts can be tiring- rejuvenate with a few days at the beach before heading home.
  3. If you are travelling in a group doing both will mean there’s something to suit everyone’s taste.
  4. Many of these options have a great price point- it’s very affordable!
  5. Africa is a continent of contrasts and you deserve to see more than one side of it!

Zanzibar Dhows

Daily flights from Harare via Nairobi with a small wait time in Nairobi. These flights are often very reasonably priced.

We recommend Zanzibar for it’s incredible value, family friendly qualities and for combining time at the beach with incredible culture and cuisine.  With some of the continents most scenic and beautiful tropical beaches Zanzibar offers the quintessential ‘beach holiday’ experience. Many resorts offer packages at incredible prices but it’s hard to know which offer true value… we can help with years of experience we know which are family friendly- offer the best service and have access to the best beaches.


There are direct flights 5 times per week from Harare to Lilongwe in Malawi.

The country of Malawi is defined by the enormous Lake Malawi- it’s actually as large as an inland sea. The lake’s southern end falls within Lake Malawi National Park – sheltering diverse wildlife from colourful fish to baboons – and its crystal clear waters are popular for diving and boating.  accommodation options that can be overwhelming- luckily we have the inside track and can advise you of exactly where to stay and what to do.
