Combining a safari with a beach vacation
Many of the itineraries that Audley can build as part of a tailor-made trip can include a safari with a beach break at the end.
Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve is a short, light aircraft flight from Zanzibar, making it possible to enjoy a morning game drive followed by lunch on the island.
Kenya has an idyllic coastline and is just a few hours journey from the Mara, or if you want to go further afield it is easy to combine Kenya with the Seychelles.
In Southern Africa, Zambia’s South Luangwa Park is a morning’s journey from Lake Malawi, so this makes an ideal combination. Namibia and Botswana combine well with Mauritius and Mozambique, however due to flight times, a night en route in Johannesburg is required.
Finally, many of Madagascar’s reserves stretch right down to the beach making it possible to enjoy a hike in the forest followed by a swim in the sea; it doesn't get much better than kicking off your hiking boots on the sand and running into the Indian Ocean to cool off.
