Just mention 'safari' and most people find that Kenya springs immediately to mind. The very word conjures up images of herds grazing on sun-baked plains and roaming through golden valleys - and this is exactly what Kenya has in store. It’s romantic, wild, beautiful and exciting all at the same time.
Kenya is not only rich with wildlife and full of thrilling safari possibilities, it also has a beautiful tropical coastline. The exotic island of Zanzibar, off the coast of mainland Tanzania, is also only a short flight away.
This means that after a few days of early morning game drives and thrilling animal encounters, you can unwind on the beautiful shores of the Indian Ocean, where pure white beaches meet clear waters and palm trees rustle in the breeze. What could be better?
Even if you're strapped for time and can only snatch a week away, you'll still have plenty of time - with a few nights on safari and a few more on the beach, you’ll get a sun-soaked holiday and a safari of a lifetime to boot! One short week will create memories that will live on for years after your holiday.
We’ve been putting together trips that combine a safari in Kenya with the beach for years, so we know exactly what works best. Here's a handful of our favourite holidays that really do have it all.
