Why choose one or the other when you have the option to do both? Africa’s best safari destinations are ideally placed to combine them with gorgeous tropical beach destinations that are a short flight away. To experience the best of the wilderness that is Africa where the red dust gets on your feet and although you may never want to wash it off, if you have to why not do it on one of our many spectacular Indian ocean Island beaches or along the splendid azure waters of Africa’s coastline.
The combinations are endless and we would highly recommend you contact us so that we can determine the best fit for your needs as well as the best recommendations for your dates of travel. Some options are just not recommended due to weather patterns affecting certain countries at certain times of year. Before you spend endless hours trawling the net for an option that grabs you, drop us a line and we will save you not only the time, but probably money too.
These are by no means the only options, but bush & beach combinations that work well together are:
East African Safaris in Tanzania, Kenya or Uganda combine well with Zanzibar Island, Mnemba Island or the Seychelles and Maldives.
Southern African Safaris in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Victoria Falls combine well with The Bazaruto and Quililea Archipelagos situated in Mozambique or The Indian Ocean Islands of Mauritius, Seychelles or Maldives.
Hi Joan - We have arrived home safely - with just a little jet lag. Your guidance and expertise in planning this trip was invaluable. The trip exceeded all of my expectations!! I would not have changed anything. It would be difficult to pick out the best part of the trip - in that each day was so special. Rob and Heath were exceptional and a great part in making the trip so special. Londolozi was amazing. I'm not sure who we have to thank for our special Anniversary treat of lunch in the tree house; but thank you, thank you, thank you!! It still brings tears to my eyes thinking of the it!! We started the trip by saying "if" we go back to Africa only for it to be quickly changed to "when" we go back to Africa. So until next time, I thank you again for making this such a special experience!!
We were a group of three couples traveling to South Africa for the first time. We have traveled to Italy, Cuba, Mexico and other locations together and had arranged to stay in a house outside of Cape Town on our own. Redfoot Safaris was introduced to us by a friend in Phoenix that had a great experience in 2017. We communicated with Rex by email and phone and were impressed by his patience as none of us had ever been on a Safari and we had lots of questions. Rex arranged for us to have two full day tours of Cape Town and the surrounding area and we were so impressed with our guide that we engaged him for another full day. Upon arrival at Rattray on Mala Mala we could not believe how comfortable and luxurious the facilities were and the staff and their service was impeccable. Our guide, Garrett, was fantastic and a wealth of knowledge. We were exposed to a great number of animals and learned so much about their lives and their environment. It was both an educational and relaxing break and our photos and memories will be enjoyed for years to come. We highly recommend letting Redfoot make the arrangements so that the total experience can be enjoyed even though it is far from home. We would love to return and repeat the entire experience.
Our trip was just perfect - spent three days touring Cape Town and surroundings with our guide, George Meyer, who was fantastic. Other than our pick-up time, nothing was set in stone, and George allowed each day to unfold as it happened. We got to see everything on our list - and then some. From there we headed to MalaMala for a couple days safari, which were amazing - the accommodations at Rattray's were beautiful, and we saw more wildlife than we were expecting. Our safari guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and perfectly suited for our group. All details were taken care of by Redfoot/Rex, including being met at the Johannesburg airport, which was a huge help on our way home! Can't say enough about Rex, George, and MalaMala. Loved the trip!!
