The beaches of Africa are a sliver of paradise with crystal seas, white sandy shorelines and endless blue skies: the picture-perfect place to relax.
Looking for flawless palm-fringed beaches, coral reefs indented with creeks and mangroves, and warm aquamarine waters beaded with tropical islands? Kenya’s South Coast and the lush Zanzibar Island offer the perfect way to round off an East Africa big-game safari.
The turquoise Indian Ocean is so clear that even without diving into its warm embrace you can glimpse flashes of bright reef fish and jewel-toned anemones – and these are just a tiny portion of the rich marine life living on the coral reef. It’s no wonder therefore that this coastline is a mecca for snorkellers and divers from around the world. Added to the mix is a heady combination of African, Arabian, Persian and Indian cultural influences, the heritage of centuries of traders blown in on the trade winds.
To explore the coast is to explore history itself, and unwind a fascinating tale written on the winding streets of the 14th Century town of Lamu, or in the bustling dhow docks of Mombasa or the ghostly ruins of Gedi, a deserted city lost deep in the jungle.
Zanzibar is home to a rich and diverse culture influenced over time by its many settlers including the Sumerians, Egyptians, Indians, Chinese, Persians, Portugese, Dutch and British.
It also offers some of the best diving experiences in East Africa and the historic Stone Town old city which has remained virtually untouched for the last 200 years.
