Visit awesome Africa while the sun still shines

If you happen to have missed that romantic getaway you wanted in this month of love, make sure you’re not too late to make the most of the Easter holidays – which are now just around the corner. If you also happen to be a sun lover, favouring beautiful beaches and warm evenings under the stars in the bushveld then you might want to consider booking now as Africa enters its autumn season in late March. Take it from us, right now is the right time to visit awesome Africa while the sun still shines!

But what are your choices? Well, South Africa and its neighbouring territories offer so much variety and choice that there is literally something for everyone so maybe we can give you some ideas based on a few excellently priced packages that we have in various parts of this glorious land…

Not too late to pop the question

If you do happen to be one of those Romeos who never got to get away in the month of romance, there are all kinds of beautiful romantic vacation spots you can still take your Juliette to, to pop the question – or to simply rekindle the fires of love.

One such place is Karafuu Village Beach Resort in Zanzibar - incredible value for money, in a well-established hotel on the island’s east coast. This beautiful, secluded, exotic and very romantic destination offers hands-on and attentive management, 4 restaurants, daily entertainment, a PADI dive school, 3 large pools, swim-up bars and a scenic Spa and hot tub. With living reefs surrounding the islands, Zanzibar has excellent dive locations too. So, now is the time for you and your Juliette to take the plunge!

If family fun time is what you’re after 

Perhaps, like most, you already have a great family and you and the kids need to just break away to get some quality family time. Well, family vacations abound in Africa at this time – because there are great places to go where you can still enjoy the water while the weather is fine!

What could be more fun and offer more water than the magnificent Victoria falls? Bask in graceful safari style at the David Livingston Safari lodge, only steps from one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Magnificent views stretch from every veranda as you relax in elegance.

Wake up to the sight of zebras wandering the Livingstone hotel grounds. Raise a glass at sunset to the marvellous waterfall thundering to its depths as you recline in style. Surrender to relaxation with spa therapies under the shade of monkey trees on the banks of the river whilst the kids play and swim to their heart’s content.

Just chill and take it all in

Possibly all you need for your holiday this year is just to chill and thrill to the idea of encompassing new sights, tropical sounds, enticing aromas, beautiful scenery and lazy days and nights under the sun and stars while the weather is still warm.

Also in Zanzibar, is the Bluebay Beach Resort & Spa, ideally located on a beautiful stretch of white sandy beach with a truly exotic feel. Lush and colourful gardens, home to more than 1000 palm trees, slope down to the beach and sea.

One not to be missed excursion is setting sail on a traditional dhow on the Safari Blue full-day excursion out into Menai Bay. It’s a haven of beautiful uninhabited islands where the waters are frequented by humpback and bottlenose dolphins. Drinks are served throughout the day and lunch is a buffet of grilled fish, lobster, calamari and chicken. Make sure this one is on your itinerary!

Get your pulse pumping!

Maybe your idea of a great holiday is just to get your adrenaline pumping – feel your heartbeat racing as you tackle a great flight, catch a fright or take on a big challenge.

Few places in the world offer more opportunities for extreme sports and adrenaline junkie activities than the magnificent Cape in South Africa. From shark cage diving to hang gliding or micro lighting off Devil’s Peak to climbing table mountain, the thrills are real and the challenges are tough!

In between all the madness take a break and savour the Franschhoek Wine Tram hop-on hop-off tour - one of the best ways to discover the true essence of the Franschhoek Valley. Picturesque vineyards, breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, world-class cuisine, fine wines and a 300-year history
