Beach Destinations

East and Southern Africa offer some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world. From warm, Indian Ocean destinations such as Kenya, Tanzania and Mozambique to some of the chillier, wilder coasts of South Africa and Namibia, visitors can enjoy a wide range of settings and activities on the mainland coast. Africa also is home to a number of exquisite islands including Zanzibar, Pemba, Seychelles and many more.

Things To See and Do


In our estimation, Zanzibar offers the best combination of culture, history and gorgeous beaches. With clean, white-sand beaches and warm, turquoise water, it’s a beautiful place to end a Tanzania safari, along with its neighbors Pemba and Mafia islands.


Also part of the Swahili Coast, Lamu is paradise in East Africa. Snorkeling, scuba and relaxing reign supreme here. Also inviting are its neighbors Malindi and Mombasa.


The beautiful island of Mauritius is known for its outdoor adventure opportunities – from exploring its coral reefs and crystalline waters to discovering its rugged interior – excitement awaits visitors in this remote paradise!


Some of the most stunning and gorgeous beaches in Southern Africa are in Mozambique. A Portuguese heritage sets it apart from neighboring countries.


Namibia’s coastline is the most dramatic in Africa. Frigid Atlantic waters meet the great Namib desert here, creating a foggy, mysterious coastline hiding seal colonies, sand bars, shipwrecks and more.


Perhaps the best known of Africa’s island countries, Seychelles is a beach-lovers dream. Its many islands offer a wide range of scuba, snorkeling and fishing activities.

South Africa

From the incredible and wild coastline near the Cape, to the warmer surrounds further north, South Africa’s beaches offer a wide range of activities including surfing, whale watching (seasonal), scuba diving, great white shark cage diving and more.

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.

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.
