Discover and explore island escapes in Africa
Africa’s network of islands, both off its coastline and those tucked away on the extensive lakes of the Great Rift Valley are perfect places to escape the world and enjoy a few days of rest and relaxation in paradise. Ranging from big to small, with basic accommodation as well as stunningly luxurious options, Africa’s island escapes and amazing experiences and ones definitely not to be missed.
Of all African islands, the spice island of Zanzibar, off the coast of Tanzania is undoubtedly the best-known and most visited, offering visitors beautiful white sand beaches, superb seafood, an array of watersports as well as the chance to visit Stonetown.
Just off Zanzibar the smaller islands of Pemba, Mafia and Songo Songo also stand out as amazing places to visit. Kenya’s Lamu island also offers an amazing cultural experience combined with beautiful beaches and dovetails superbly with a Kenyan safari.
Further south the islands of Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago are home to some of the finest beach lodges in Africa, as are the small islands of the northern tip of Madagascar. Inland there are plenty of islands hidden away in the Rift Valley Lakes such as Lakes Victoria, Tanganyika and Malawi, offering visitors an idyllic spot to spend a few days. Further afield both Mauritius and the Seychelles offer the chance to spend an entire holiday on the island and get a taste of local life as well as relaxing on beautiful white sand beaches.
Whether you are looking to spend a few days on an island as part of a wider trip, or head out for a fly and flop beach holiday, there are a myriad of options on offer to you and we are here to guide you to the best options for your needs and ensure the ultimate Robinson Crusoe experience for you.
