  •  If, like us, you’re already dreaming of your first getaway once it is safe to travel again, here are three destinations we’re wanderlusting about and recommend you plan to visit for a post-isolation getaway.

    Kenya

    On safari in Kenya

    Lions in Kenya

    Kenya is an amazing destination all year round. If you decide to visit between late June to October, you’ll have the chance to witness the annual wildebeest migration. It’s truly incredible to see them crossing the Mara River between the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Masai Mara in Kenya.

    We’d recommend combining your trip with a couple of days relaxing in the coastal city of Mombasa which has stunning beaches, delicious cuisine and wonderful hospitality.

    Suggested itineraries:

    Cheetah Safari

    Our Cheetah Safari is a 7-night itinerary visiting the Aberdares, Samburu the Rift Valley Lakes and the Masai Mara.

    Kenya Royal Safari

    A safari of distinction, fit for royalty, visiting Kenya’s wildlife-filled game reserves and enjoying some of Kenya’s finest lodges and camps.

    You can elevate the experience by adding on a beach holiday as an extension!

    South Africa

    Penguins at Boulders Beach

    We’d recommend a trip to South Africa in September as it is one of the drier months and perfect for game viewing. With striking landscapes, excellent wildlife and safari routes, diverse cultures, history, wine tasting and much more, this is a country in which to cherry-pick your dream excursions and put together the holiday of a lifetime.

    Suggested itineraries

    Cape Town, Blue Train and Safari

    An exciting 8-night tour which includes 3 nights in fabulous Cape Town, a 2-night stay on the luxurious Blue Train, 1 night in Johannesburg and 2 nights safari at a private game reserve.

    Enjoy a couple of nights in Port Elizabeth, known as the ‘friendly city’, with the chance to explore a sanctuary of gentle giants at Addo Elephant National Park.

    Botswana

    Okavango Delta, Botswana

    Okavango Delta

    The amazing sight of hundreds of majestic elephants in the Chobe National Park is truly memorable and is why Botswana is one of our top recommendations. Botswana is a country of wild variety, dramatic scenery and untamed parks, and definitely one of Africa’s diamonds to add to your travel radar.

    In terms of the best time to visit, September is one of the drier months and an excellent time to visit.

    Suggested itineraries

    Under One Botswana Sky

    This 6-night itinerary starts in the Chobe National Park then moves on to the Okavango Delta which is a vast oasis atop the sands of the Kalahari Desert.

    Botswana Focus

    This superb 8-night safari will enchant and delight you. You’ll start by visiting the mighty Victoria Falls, then go onto to Chobe which is one of Africa’s most stunning rivers, and finally, discover the Okavango Delta, where permanent lagoons and deep channels have created a unique habitat for a multitude of animals and birds.
