The Perfect Africa Trip for First-Time Visitors

The continent of Africa is made up of 54 countries. So where to begin?

The 2 most popular bucket list items in Africa are Morocco in the northwest corner and safari experiences in countries in Eastern Africa and South Africa.

In this Blog I will focus on a trip that combines a safari experience with other fabulous destinations in this amazing continent.

My favorite recommendation is to split your stay into 3 very distinct experiences…

Safari experience in Krueger National Park

A Safari Experience

Safari experiences are available in many African countries and accommodations range from mobile camps to very luxurious private game reserves and even wellness centers. We work with you to select the perfect experience depending on time of year you are visiting and animals that you must see on your game drives.

Beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town / Winelands

Cape Town is a beautiful city with a bustling art and culinary scene. Surrounded by the sea with a spectacular mountain range, beaches, art galleries, chic hotels, and top-rated restaurants, Cape Town is a must visit city when traveling to Africa. Nearby you have the Winelands, a stunning wine region where you can indulge in wine tastings, boutique accommodations at wine estates, exploring historic towns, and culinary experiences.

One&Only in Mauritius
The spectacular One&Only Le Saint Géran, Mauritius

Ending with a few days on an African island

There are so many to choose from such as Mauritius and Zanzibar or if you’d like to venture out further into the Indian Ocean stopping in the Seychelles is another fabulous option.

It all comes down to the amount of time you can be away and your personal preferences. That is why everything we do here at Distinct Vacations is completely customized to our clients. There are no cookie cutter packages or pre-planned itineraries.
