Have you always wanted to go on a safari and never quite made it? Perhaps you’re a sun worshipper and the thought of giving up your yearly fortnight on the beach has always prevented it? Well rest assured, now is the time to do both. That’s right, have your cake AND eat it with a Luxtripper trip to Africa.

Enjoy both the thrill of the safari and the soft sands of the beach with this handy travel guide!

South Africa

Start by flying into Johannesburg and then catching a short flight over to Hoedspruit –the gateway to Kruger National Park. This is undoubtedly the best park for wildlife in South Africaboasting the Big Five (lions, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhino), this park rivals the best in the world. 

After you’ve had your fill of prowling lions and gentle giant elephants – and used up your camera storage with photos – say goodbye to the wilderness of Kruger and board a plane out of Hoedspruit and into Cape Town. You’ve found the beach - plus a heck of a lot more. Table Mountain, the flat mountain that looms over Cape Town is one of the most impressive natural phenomenon in the world, and has the New Seven Wonders title to prove it. 

Tanzania and Zanzibar

Start your trip in Tanzania at probably the most famous National Park in the world, The Serengeti. Here you’ll be able to get up close and personal with the fascinating wild animals we see on television with David Attenborough; watch in awe as a leopard dashes up a tree, elephants splash in the river and herds of wildebeest charge across the plain. 

Then onto Zanzibar via ferry or private transfer for a week without a care in the world. Swim with turtles, laze on squeaky clean white beaches and try to comprehend the fact that the ocean really is that blue. Plus, with luxury resorts aplenty, treat yourself to a stay fit for a royal – you deserve it.

Kenya

Take a flight into Nairobi, the capital, and head straight for The Masai Mara National Park. It’s wild and resilient and beautiful. If you’re particularly lucky you’ll have timed your visit around the largest annual migration of animals in the world, so sit back and marvel at the incredible spectacle of thousands of wildebeest charging past your 4x4 on the savannahs. 

Though it will be with a heavy heart that you leave your luxury lodge and this striking landscape behind, finding yourself on the coast at Diani Beach will cure your heartache fast. This world famous 10km stretch of beach looks out onto the azure blue of the Indian Ocean and meets it with gently swaying palm trees and soda-white sand. It’s also home to a variety of luxury hotels catering for your every need, and a lively, chic atmosphere.
