February 23, 2010  By: Africa Adventure Consultants

Are the late-winter blues getting you down? Nothing like an Africa beach getaway to chase those blues away! Here are three of our top-recommended beach holidays to get you into the sun – get ready to wiggle those toes in the sand, snorkel and dive clear waters and eat fresh seafood!

Our Romantic Zanzibar Holiday isn’t just for honeymooners! This is the perfect add-on to any safari in East Africa – or add a few days and hop over to Zanzibar for a week or more in the sun! The Spice Island of Zanzibar is the perfect place to unwind after an East African safari. On this 5-day beach holiday, spend your days snorkeling, strolling the white sand beaches or cruising in a dhow all based from the deluxe Matemwe Bungalows. Optional day trips to Stone Town and spice tours are available, as well. The intimate Matemwe Bungalows is the ideal retreat for travelers looking for privacy and excellent accommodations and cuisine.

Mozambique is known for its beautiful beaches – wild and untouched. Add a relaxing beach vacation to any Southern Africa safari or fly into Johannesburg (South African Airways is offering amazing round-trip fares right now) and jet out to the Bazaruto Archipelago for a few days in the sun on our Mozambique Beach Holiday. Rest, relax and explore Mozambique’s picturesque Bazaruto Archipelago based from deluxe or luxury beach lodges. Spend your days snorkeling, deep sea fishing, visiting villages and simply enjoying the sun and sand.

On our Malawi Surf & Turf enjoy the inland beaches of picturesque Lake Malawi. Add a little game viewing and you’ve got the perfect African escape! Be one of the few to discover the secrets of Malawi—“The Warm Heart of Africa.” On this week-long adventure tour in Malawi you’ll enjoy a wonderful combination of game viewing, beach and water activities, forgetting about the rest of the world in the process. Explore Liwonde National Park based from an intimate wilderness lodge and relax on the shores of Lake Malawi in a luxury waterfront bungalow.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
