An African safari and beach holiday together give you the very best Africa has to offer: unique wildlife and incomparable beaches.
Going to sleep to the sound of jackals and waking before the sun to track elephant and buffalo, and maybe even witness a lion kill, is an experience like no other. However, early mornings and intense concentration can take their toll. What better way to relax than on a tropical African beach with a well-earned, umbrella-decorated drink.
We've put together the best combinations we can think of, taking in classic safari destinations like the Kruger National Park and Botswana's Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park together with sparkling Indian Ocean destinations such as the Quirimbas and Bazaruto archipelagos not to mention that ultimate beach destination, the Seychelles.
Combining these destinations is easier than you might think: modern air travel and slick logistics will have you on the beach the same day that you leave the bush - wake up to the sound of hippos and elephants, go to sleep to the sound of lapping waves and rustling palms.
And if it's a safari and beach honeymoon you're after, browse our experts' picks of the most romantic African getaways including the best of both.
