When going on a holiday in Africa, a safari tour to see animals in their natural habitats is almost always the key highlight on many travel itineraries. From the spectacle of the Great Migration and watching the world-famous Big Five roam the endless plains to catching a rare glimpse of the world’s most endangered species, there’s nothing quite like a safari. However, what some people don’t know is that Africa is also a tropical paradise! So why not check out some of the most exotic beaches on the planet after you’ve had your fill of exploring the vast wilderness? This is hands down the ultimate African getaway combo.
The more relevant question here is why not? You’ll get to see two different worlds in one trip which will only give you a more rounded holiday experience. Head out into the wild, go on scintillating game drives, retire for the day with sundowners, and sleep under the stars. The African bush exposes you to nature at its finest, leaving you with a more profound understanding and appreciation of the world as you know it. It is an educational experience like no other. It's also a perfect safari option for honeymooners who want to enjoy both the African safari experience and a relaxing beach holiday!
Now, after your adventures in the wild, pack your things and head on to some of the most sought-after tropical paradises tours on earth. It is a radical yet pleasant change in scenery as rolling plains are replaced by beautiful turquoise waters stretching as far as the eye can see, the dense bushes by miles and miles of fine white sand, while the gorgeous African sunrise and sunset continue to mesmerize. It is the perfect way to round off your African adventure and treat yourself to a well-deserved pampering after your time in the wild.
There’s also the array of watersports and beachside activities to look forward to. In addition to the white sand, clear, turquoise waters, and tropical coconut trees, the beaches in Africa boast some of the most magnificent coral reefs you’ll ever see. So if you spend your time in the bush gazing at animals from different vantage points, then take a plunge and explore the depths to see some of the ocean’s inhabitants. There are also several activities such as surfing, jet skiing, kiteboarding, snorkeling, parasailing, wake-boarding, and even swimming with dolphins. The best part is that a bush to beach safari is perfect for just about any type of traveler. From solo backpackers to honeymooning couples and even families with kids.

Among the most popular safari countries, only Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, and Zimbabwe are bordered by the ocean. If your safari takes place in any of these countries, then here are some of the Zanzibar top beaches to include in your travel plans:
