Africa delivers some incredible beach experiences and combines beautifully
with a bush break to provide a very unique holiday.
With endless beaches and the warm Indian Ocean, or the remote sandy freshwater shores of the Great Lakes, these coastlines dish-up a wealth of different experiences and accommodation styles to suit a wide range of tastes.
