Here’s the low-down on each of our fabulous Africa destinations...

Africa holidays are absolutely magical, let us help you find the best destination for your perfect holiday!


The wild at heart will feel so at home in Tanzania. It's the home of the famed Serengeti, and your doorway to the "Big Five". This is the closest to The Lion King in real life that you’re ever going to get! Meet lions and elephants on thrilling safari drives through the savannah, paddle through enchanting mangroves, or hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro! If you're looking for a Tanzania honeymoon, it's guaranteed to be super romantic; hide away in the private pool of your luxury tent, take a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti and fall asleep under the stars, lulled by nature’s music...

Tanzania is perfect for every kind of traveller; have your perfect family holiday and let the kids learn about the beauty and power of nature first-hand! We really recommend twinning your safari with a visit to Zanzibar once you're ready for some relaxation. Feast your eyes on diamond white sands and the swaying palms of paradise.

Twin your adventure with Zanzibar, the Seychelles or Mauritius to turn your Tanzania honeymoon into the safari and sand escape of everyone’s dreams! 


There's nowhere quite like Kenya. Choose a Kenya holiday and take a walk on the wild side in the world’s most magnificent national park – the Masai Mara. Located next to the Serengeti, this is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet the Big Five and Great Migration - if you can catch them! There is something for everybody in Kenya; kids will love nature walks and teens can get a thrill on a 4x4 quad bike tour

As well as gorgeous wildlife, Kenya is also the home of the Masai tribes, visit one of the villages and learn the life of the locals. For a unique honeymoon experience, fall in love with the enchanting Giraffe Manor and see our long-necked friends up-close as you share breakfast with the gentlest of long-lashed creatures!

Your unforgettable Kenya safari is likely to be full-on, why not allocate some time to relax and twin it with a holiday to Mauritius or the Seychelles?

South Africa

A South Africa holiday is the best of both worlds. African plains, glittering coastlines, rugged cliffs – and don’t forget the world-class wine! South Africa has incredible national parks, perfect for your family holiday. Kruger National Park is home to the Big Five (elephants, lions, rhinoceros, cape buffalo and leopards), rivalling the Serengeti in Tanzania, while Table Mountain provides unforgettable views that are completely worth the hike. 

Find secluded beaches on the Garden Route; along with stylish city hotels and authentic tented camps – whether you relax or explore is up to you! Visit adorable African penguins at Boulder Beach or go on a romantic South Africa honeymoon in the Winelands. South Africa is great for family holidays too, being one of the main destinations to provide malaria-free safaris.

Combine your South Africa holiday with a trip to Mauritius or the Seychelles for a taste of the safari and sea.


This ones for the explorers who dream of something completely different from the norm. You don’t need a rocket-ship to step onto another planet – discover the Mars-like landscapes of Namibia! This intergalactic getaway is home to soaring sand dunes that mimic the shades of the fiery sunset, as well as to the world’s oldest desert and the adapted animals that live there, from elephants and cheetahs to gemsbok! 

Namibia is an explorer's paradise; why not conquer Dune 45, Namibia’s very own Everest? Wander through a soaring archway of whale bones and discover haunting remains along with the world's largest population of seals at Skeleton Coast before riding the waves. A Namibia holiday is perfect for adventurous couples! 

Want an experience that's even more unique? Why not twin your otherworldly Namibia holiday with a beach escape in Mozambique? 


Another safari experience with a difference; with its luscious rainforests, Rwanda is the best place to see gorillas in an exclusive and secluded setting, as well as cheeky chimpanzees and sleepy sloths. Rwanda offers a secluded and intimate experience with an enchanting ezmerald-hued backdrop unlike any other destination in Africa. Expect to embark on adventures in smaller safari groups than anywhere else.

This is also the perfect secluded wellness destination for couples - One&Only Nyungwe House and Bisate Lodge are perfect for a Rwanda honeymoon. Take an amazing helicopter ride, share an intimate private dinner or stargaze; your romantic Rwanda honeymoon will be like no other. You'll be the envy of all your friends!

Twin your Rwanda adventure with the thrilling plains of Kenya or Tanzania, the stunning beaches of Zanzibar or the incredible landscapes of Zambia.


Zambia is iconic and unforgettable. Expect to wake up to views of emerald forests and the glimmering Zambezi river from your private terrace... the exclusive lodges found on Zambia holidays are your window to the wildlife scene. A visit here is incomplete without seeing the bucket-list worthy UNESCO site of Victoria Falls; why not get a closer look and submerge yourself into Devil’s Pool – if you dare! Visit for your honeymoon and enjoy sunset cruises down the Zambezi; drink in the beauty of Africa while the gentle breeze runs through your hair...

Twin your magical Zambia holiday with a luxurious beach escape in Zanzibar, Mauritius, or the Seychelles.


Move it, move it onto an island like no other, Madagascar is nature’s playground! Discover fantastic wildlife at UNESCO site Tsingy de Bemaraha – you’ll definitely bump into a lemur or two! That's not all though, a Madagascar holiday is also the secluded beach escape of your dreams. The island shares the Indian Ocean with the Maldives, making it perfect for scuba diving and snorkelling into kaleidoscopic underwater kingdoms! 

You won’t be able to tear your eyes away from the silhouette of the Avenue of Barobas at sunset, snap a picture and create some real Insta-envy. Another must-do is discovering the heart-shaped lake of Madagascar's capital, Antananarivo.

A safari perfectly complements a beach escape, we recommend twinning your Madagascar holiday with a trip to South Africa, Kenya or Tanzania!


Let yourself in on one of the world’s best-kept secrets... with sugar-white sands and glittering turquoise waters, Mozambique is heaven on earth! Nowhere gets an Africa honeymoon right quite like this secluded getaway, enjoy romantic seaside picnics and sumptuous sunsets with hues of purple and orange. It's also a great destination for a dreamy family holiday; kayak and dive beneath the waves or visit the amazing Gorongosa National Park at the Great Rift Valley and marvel at the beauty of its cascading multi-tiered waterfalls...

Mozambique also offers the ultimate island-hopping experience; discover the Quirimbas Archipelago and uncover their luscious palms and reefs teeming with life! Mozambique’s untouched atmosphere will make you feel like it’s your very own, perfect for an intimate Africa honeymoon.

Continue your relaxing Mozambique holiday with an exciting safari escape in Tanzania, Kenya or South Africa to get the best of both worlds.
