Our favourite African beaches

So the last post got us thinking. Here’s the Zambezi team’s personal African beach recommendations.

Kiwayu, Lamu, Kenya – “Deserted white sandy beach, sitting on cushions in the bar with a glass of wine and a huge plate of fresh oysters!” Fi Thompson

North Island, Seychelles - ”Its exclusivity, sheer luxury and tropical paradise setting makes you feel like you are on a real desert island. (I would link it with a 6 night luxury Botswana safari for the ultimate trip!)” Mark Pearson

Tsitiskama/Storms River, South Africa – “Wonderful, rugged, unspoilt coastline and great scenic hiking trails. Good fishing if you’re in to that too!” Ang Smith

Kiwayu, Lamu, Kenya - “Relaxing, quiet, soft sand, great food (seafood), and they had a lovely dog!” Debbie Stubbs

Peponi, Lamu, Kenya – “Compulsory one night at Peponi to sample oysters with crisp white Sauvignon Blanc, then visit Shela Village and mix with the rabble in the hotel that night. Followed by a long wander north from Kiwayu through the marine reserve with some flycamping – nobody else wants to be near the Somalia border so you’re going to have the best of many worlds: great beaches, loads of space, warm water, good food, chosen company with no crowds!” John Berry

Hout Bay, Cape Town, South Africa – “Sipping iced coffee before strolling back along the beach for the best prawns, oysters and Sauvignon Blanc on the planet.” Sam Kirton
