To help you decide on the best option safari and beach combination for you, we’ve divided this article up into classic combinations, animal specific, active options and more unusual safaris.

Classic safari and beach

1. Kenya safari and beach

When it comes to classic beach and bush options, Kenya often comes up top. Home to the world-famous Masai Mara, as well as a plethora of other wonderful and very accessible safari areas including Samburu, Lewa and Laikipia, Kenya easily allows you to combine two different safari areas together, and then it is a short hop to the soft, sandy beaches of the Kenyan coast or Zanzibar.

3. South Africa Kruger safari and Mozambique beaches

The Kruger National Park is a short hop from Johannesburg airport in South Africa, which is the same airport to head towards the beaches of Mozambique, so these two destinations combine wonderfully well as a beach and bush option.

  • Abundant wildlife: spot the Big Five, as well as an abundance of other animals and over 500 bird species. The Kruger National Park is a wonderful place to see rare wild dogs.
  • Private Reserves: South Africa was the first country to introduce private reserves for those wanting a more exclusive game-viewing experience. There are no fences between the Kruger National Park and reserves such as the famous Sabi Sands which border these meaning vast amounts of wildlife, without the crowds and a whole host of additional activities available.
  • High-standard accommodation: South Africa offers a range of luxury lodges and tented camps which are often priced more competitively than those in Kenya and Tanzania. Generally, South Africa is known for having exceptionally high accommodation, service and food standards.
  • Self-drive: If you want to explore at your own pace, the Kruger in South Africa is one of the most popular places to try a self-drive safari thanks to the tarmac roads which are well signposted.
  • Walking and night safaris: In the private reserves attached to Kruger you can try a whole host of other safari activities including walking safaris and night drives.
  • Stunning Archipelagos: Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique is easy to access from Johannesburg.

The crystal-clear waters, white sand dunes, and abundant marine life make it a paradise for snorkelling, diving, and water sports.

These magnificent creatures pass through the area on their annual journey, providing a thrilling opportunity to witness their majestic displays.

4. South Africa’s Eastern Cape and the Garden Route

Another enduring popular option is to combine a South Africa safari with the Garden Route which allows you to have a very varied trip combining a safari with buzzing Cape Town, the Winelands and the Garden Route beaches.

Typically, you would either choose to combine the Kruger National Park (or one of the private conservancies attached) and then fly down to Cape Town from Johannesburg and begin the Garden Route from here, or else combine the garden route with Eastern Cape near the city of Port Elizabeth – we are going to focus on this second option.

The Eastern Cape is home to several private game reserves, such as Amakhala, Shamwari, and Kwandwe. After your safari experience in the Eastern Cape, you can easily proceed to the Garden Route, which starts not too far from the game reserves. You can drive along the scenic N2 highway, and within a few hours, you'll be immersed in the breathtaking beauty of the Garden Route.

This option is perfect if you want to dip your toe in a little bit of safari and add in some beach time, but to have a well-rounded and varied holiday.

  • Private Game Reserves: The Eastern Cape is home to several private game reserves, such as Amakhala, Shamwari, and Kwandwe, which offer exclusive safari experiences with luxurious lodges and intimate wildlife encounters.

  • Family-Friendly: Many lodges in the Eastern Cape cater to families, offering child-friendly activities and accommodations, making it an excellent choice for family safaris.
  • Beautiful beaches: Such as Plettenberg Bay are very popular destinations along the Garden Route and have whale-watching opportunities (seasonal), and nature reserves like Robberg Nature Reserve. It is worth noting that the sea here isn’t as warm as the Indian Ocean.
  • Whale watching: Hermanus is one of the whale-watching capitals in the world and you can often see whales from the shore. The clifftop paths woven with flowers are an absolute must, and there are sandy beaches here too.
  • Ostriches: Oudtshoorn is located just off the Garden Route, and is known as the "Ostrich Capital of the World." It offers unique experiences like visiting ostrich farms and exploring the Cango Caves.
  • Winelands: Whilst not strictly the Garden Route, it is a short throw to the Winelands of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek which make a wonderful place to relax and enjoy long lunches surrounded by mountains and with some of the best wine in the world.
  • Cape Town: the cosmopolitan town of Cape Town has a huge array of museums, markets, and restaurants, as well as being home to a number of sandy beaches of which Camps Bay is particularly popular.

5. Zambia and Malawi

If you’re looking for something a little bit different and off the beaten track, then Zambia and Malawi are such to tick the box.

Zambia is often considered a second-time safari destination as it is wilder and rawer than some other destinations, and Malawi whilst landlocked, is home to Lake Malawi which provides a brilliant beach experience.

  • Remote and Untouched Wilderness: Zambia is known for its vast and remote wilderness areas, offering an authentic and uncrowded safari experience.

Unusual safari and beach combinations

6. Namibia

If you’re looking for a completely different safari and beach experience, then Namibia could be for you. A safari within the desert is a world away from the vast, lush plains of the Masai Mara, and the harsh coastline of Namibia lends itself to discovering desert-adapted plants, seals, and adrenaline-fueled activities rather than sunbathing on a beach. Certainly not a classic beach and bush combination, but that’s the appeal!

A Namibia safari and beach holiday offer a perfect blend of adventure, wildlife encounters, stunning landscapes, and relaxation along the picturesque coastline. It's a journey that provides a deep appreciation for Namibia's diverse natural beauty and its unique offerings in both the desert and the sea.

  • Wild coastlines: The Skeleton Coast is a rugged and desolate coastline known for its shipwrecks and otherworldly landscapes. It provides a unique and eerie beauty for those seeking a more off-the-beaten-path beach experience, but ideal for those looking for adventure!
