Our South Africa and Seychelles multi-centre holiday perfectly blends the spectacular wilderness of South Africa with powdery white sands in the Seychelles. It’s ideal for those wanting to combine a safari holiday with the beach.
The best time to enjoy our South Africa and Seychelles holiday is between May and September. This is the dry season, which brings warm temperatures and lots of sun. It also means animals are more likely to gather around watering holes, allowing you to see some of the shyer ones. This is also a great time to visit the Seychelles, as it brings stronger winds perfect for water sports like sailing.
Begin your multi-centre holiday in South Africa, where you’ll find some incredible wildlife. The Big Five (elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos and buffalos) can be found on a safari in Kruger National Park. But there’s so much more to see. Interact with penguins on the beach in Cape Town, travel along the Garden Route and see baby sharks, dolphins and whales in the sea. Or visit the Eastern Cape for a fascinating mixture of wildlife, including some of the world’s most diverse underwater species – where the two oceans meet.
End your multi-centre holiday in the Seychelles. Here you’ll find some of the world’s most beautiful white sandy beaches, which stretch along the Indian Ocean coastline. Continue your exploration of incredible wildlife with a scuba diving or snorkelling trip, or enjoy water sports like sailing and wind surfing. Those wanting to get to know the culture can visit the capital, Victoria, which has a fascinating history.

Start your Journey
South Africa is a fascinating country with a deep history and culture. It’s also a fantastic safari destination, where you can see some incredible animals. Kruger National Park is the most famous spot for a safari, and you’re in for a good chance of seeing Africa’s Big Five here. These include lions, leopards, black and white rhinos, elephants and buffalo.
For a mixture of wildlife and the city, head to Cape Town. It’s home to the famous Boulders Beach, where penguins rest and sun themselves on the sands. Carry on along the spectacular Garden Route from Cape Town and you’ll come across some unique creatures. Visit small farms and see ostriches and zebras, or see dolphins, sharks and whales as they swim in Plettenberg Bay.
If you prefer to find truly wild landscapes and wonderful animals, head to Eastern Cape. This is where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, creating a unique home to thousands of creatures. See whales, sharks and dolphins, as well as tropical fish and colourful birds on the land.
The Seychelles is known to be one of the most incredible places for a beach holiday. It’s a favourite with honeymooners, and it’s easy to see why. You’ll find miles of white sands which stretch out for miles and are lapped by the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean, as well as an abundance of luxury hotels.
Immerse yourself in the tranquil atmosphere on your Seychelles multi-centre. Spend long lazy days on the beach, with a cocktail in one hand and a book in the other. Take a dip in the azure waters of the sea, or make the most of the beautiful hotels and swimming pools on offer. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy romantic activities. These include candlelit dinners on the beach, champagne sunset cruises and picnics on deserted islands.
Active visitors to the Seychelles can extend their wildlife viewing with a scuba diving or snorkelling trip. Set off with an expert guide and see the beautiful colourful coral and many fish which live under the clear waters. You can also take to the seas with sailing and wind surfing, or explore the islands’ capital – pretty Victoria.
