ISLANDS OF AFRICA

One of the more unique destinations, almost a spin-off from the rest of Africa on an evolutionary path of its own, Madagascar makes for a truly inspiring destination! Madagascar offers a variety of activities, from wildlife viewing, fishing and diving!

If your sole purpose is diving and rejuvenating the mind, body and soul, Seychelles could be your destination—an archipelago of 115 magnificent islands with a destination for everyone.

We offer four very different regions for the Indian Ocean Islands, each with its own magnificent history and tranquil beauty.

Destinations

Seychelles

Where the vibrantly warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean present a striking contrast as they soothingly lap the pristine white sandy beaches.

From eco-chic to pure luxury, Seychelles offers numerous beaches, coral reefs and nature reserves, and some of the planets most sought-after snorkelling and scuba diving. Your perfect ending to an African Safari or as a standalone Island Getaway!

Madagascar

This unique landscape is made up of some of the most remarkable and incredibly diverse fauna and flora known to mankind.

Nearly 5% of all known animal and plant species can be found here, and here alone. Not many places, even on the African mainland offer such an intense kaleidoscope of nature, varying vastly in as little as just 300km, which is all it takes to go from rainforest to desert.

Zanzibar

The exotic Zanzibar archipelago lies 25km off the east coast of Tanzania and includes Unguja, Pemba and an arrangement of small, tropical island sanctuaries.

The northern and eastern coasts of Unguja including beautiful and timeless beaches boast many excellent resorts, which makes Zanzibar a perfect place to conclude an East African safari.

Mozambique

Mozambique is a glorious home of Africa’s finest beach retreats and marine wonderlands. Relatively unknown to the international traveller, Mozambique’s tropical paradise offerings are well known to its close neighbours, the South Africans! Mozambique borders South Africa and sits along the eastern shores of Southern Africa.

Ok, we here at Safari Guru we know and accept that Mozambique is not an island! But we concentrate on the beach and the islands of Mozambique for experiences that offer a tropical idyll of the bluest blue seas and multicoloured coral reefs surrounding Mozambique’s beautiful island lodges. 

Powdery sandy beaches fringed with palm trees offer complete seclusion along this Indian Ocean coastline, and idyllic archipelagos of tropical islands dotted off the mainland.
