Travel to Africa’s Hidden Islands
Escape to Your Own Secluded Paradise
The perfect addition to your A&K safari, Africa’s island paradises afford an unspoiled refuge of sand, sun and surf known to only the savviest of travellers. Tranquil escapes such as Benguerra Island, Zanzibar, Mauritius and the Seychelles beckon a call to unplug, dig your toes in the sand and truly relax.
To experience these hidden island gems in peerless A&K style, consider adding an Extension to your African small-group journey or making them a part of a customized Tailor Made itinerary.
One of five islands of Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago, Benguerra Island is celebrated for its dazzling marine life, including dolphins, dugongs, Nile crocodiles and three species of sea turtles. This small island comprises an airstrip, two five-star resorts, a ring of sandy beaches and little else to spoil the seclusion.
Also known as the “Spice Island,” Zanzibar boasts a vibrant culture borne of its deep-rooted trade traditions. This eclectic mix of Moorish, Middle Eastern, Indian and African influences shapes the architecture and flavors the cuisine of the island’s many charming towns.
This far-flung jewel of the Indian Ocean captivates with an intoxicating mix of powder-white beaches, sapphire-blue waters, stunning wildlife, first-class resorts and worldly cuisine. Relatively large in size, the island caters to adventure seekers, foodies, beachcombers, birdwatchers and hammock-dwellers alike.
The Seychelles’ 115 islands paint a vibrant masterwork of azure waters, white sands and verdant mountains. A diverse wealth of marine and birdlife inhabits this “Galápagos of the Indian Ocean.” Divers and snorkelers flock to the Seychelles’ vast atoll, a coral wonderland spanning some 22 miles.
