Binoculars to bikinis

For most, the idea of planning a safari evokes an emotional need to escapes the hustle-and-bustle, connect with nature and restore the soul.

Africa is a vast and highly diverse continent full of fascinating cultures, dramatic scenery, extraordinary animals and offers amazing island destinations. That’s right - some of the most pristine Robinson Crusoe-esque beach escapes can be found in close proximity to iconic safari destinations.

The cotton-candy beaches of the Seychelles set against the striking granite boulders, the unrivalled beauty and wildness of Mozambique or the Zanzibari palm-fringed beaches and white-sailed dhows on a turquoise sea.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

From adventuring through some of the most pristine wildlife conservation areas like Kruger National Park in South Africa, Okavango Delta in Botswana or Masai Mara in Kenya to sinking your feet into the soft sands on a remote island.

THE BEST WAY TO UNWIND

Going on safari will be one of the most thrilling experiences of your life, but make no mistake – it can be tiring too! You’re often up before the sun, mostly for fear of missing the next big wildlife sighting, and in bed long after it has set! All the more reason to jet off to an island afterwards for some serious R&R!

THE BUSH TAN

When you’re out in the sun around 8 hours of the day, the rule of thumb is to wear sleeves, collared shirts, hats, etc. There are a few tan lines that come with the dress code! What better way to do rectify this than in your bathing suit or trunks under a gently swaying palm frond with a cocktail in hand?

IT’S MEANT TO BE

With flight routes from bush airstrips straight to islands, such as those between the Serengeti and the Zanzibar Archipelago, hopping from bush to beach has never been so easy.

Classic Escapes is committed to partnering with island lodges whose founding values are to protect and preserve these marine habitats which are under local and international pressures and global climate change.
