Join us on a holiday to East Africa

Discover the rich cultures and breathtaking splendour of these expansive, unspoilt lands.

East Africa is a place of tremendous natural beauty. From the jungles of Madagascar to the rugged savannah of Kenya, if you are in search of rare wildlife and opportunities to disconnect from busy, modern life and get acquainted with nature at its wildest, this is the place for you.

The East African nation of Kenya is perhaps the country most well-known for safari holidays. Whether you explore the Masai Mara or a smaller reserve, you will have the rare opportunity to spot wildebeest, zebras, lions, leopards, and hyenas roaming free. 

While in your mind, east Africa might be more of a place with lands characterised by desert savannah, this part of the world has an incredible coastline. East Africa’s Indian Ocean coastline was once a crucial part of trading routes, meaning it has become a melting pot for Asian, Middle Eastern and African cultures. Many of the beaches are also unspoilt, allowing you to enjoy the sunshine, relax, and swim in the sea. In Kenya, we would definitely recommend combining a safari holiday with a beach holiday for this very reason. 

Madagascar is another east African highlight. From UNESCO-listed rice fields to the lemur-filled Ranomafana National Park to the vast desert landscapes of Isalo National Park, you can take your chance at spotting more than 11,000 endemic plant and animal species.
