From epic wildlife encounters on African safaris to golden coastlines ideal for beach breaks, Africa is an inspiringly majestic continent, with a wide variety of experiences on offer. Holidays in Africa provide something for everyone. Whether you’re looking to be inspired by wonderful wildlife, enlightened by rousing culture or simply feel relaxed on a quiet, peaceful beach, you will find a dream holiday adventure here.
Africa truly does provide visitors with the trip of a lifetime, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a lifetime of savings just to enjoy a visit here. We at Citrus Holidays work hard to make our trips as affordable as they are enjoyable, making our excellent range of getaways as accessible as possible. However, this doesn’t mean that we compromise on quality; all of our retreats are tailor-made by us, combining engaging activities with well-equipped hotels and services. Many of our holidays are all-inclusive, too, meaning all you have to worry about is how to make the most of your ideal getaway.
Our handcrafted itineraries are ideal for those looking to enjoy a trip in a social setting, as they often include informative group tours of the region’s top sights and attractions, allowing you to meet other friendly holidaymakers while taking in the local culture. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to explore the local area at your own pace, you can do so by booking one of our B&B or room-only packages, giving you the freedom and flexibility to do the activities you want, when you want.
As well as this, we at Citrus Holidays hold an ATOL license, so you can rest assured that your holiday is safe and secure when booking through us. Our combination of expertise, great value prices and carefully crafted breaks make us the ideal option for booking your African holiday.
Picking the best attraction to visit in Africa is a near-impossible task since there is such a wide variety of excellent sights, landmarks and activities to experience here. The best sights for you to see depends on what you want from your holiday. However, a sight which is undeniably amongst the continent’s most famous is the spectacular Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe - the largest waterfall in the world. Witnessing the power of these phenomenal falls in person will leave you in awe, with over 4000 cubic metres of water per second cascading down the vast, 108m drop. As well as seeing this wonderful waterfall, there are many more experiences to be enjoyed on our Victoria Falls itinerary. Venture to Johannesburg's popular Gold Reef City theme park and the iconic Boulders Beach in Cape Town, where you can meet the Cape Peninsula’s famous penguin colony.
We also offer opportunities for you to meet the wildlife more closely associated with Africa, namely, the Big Five game (lions, rhinos, elephants, leopards and Cape buffalos). Our Stunning South Africa Getaway and Victoria Falls itineraries both include a full day game drive in the thriving Kruger National Park, which as well as the Big Five, is home to giraffes, cheetahs, hippos and antelopes.
If your ideal African escape is an image of peace and serenity rather than adventure, consider venturing to the exotic coastal region of Zanzibar in Tanzania. Our week-long Zanzibar beach retreat provides travellers with everything they need to kick back and relax, including idyllic four-star accommodation with an all-inclusive meal plan, ensuring a completely stress-free getaway. You’ll even get a free gourmet dinner for two during your stay, a fitting treat for you to indulge in during your holiday. The refreshing swimming pool of the characterful VOI Kiwengwa Resort may be tempting, but remember to venture out to the region’s many idyllic beaches during your stay, too, where clear skies, turquoise waters and pristine white sands await.
Animal lovers can enjoy an unforgettable African safari on this trip, too, by adding a safari drive in the Selous Game Reserve to their trip. Here, you will experience a full day game drive in an open-top jeep, with the chance to encounter elephants, rhinos, lions, giraffes and many other animals which flourish in this vast wilderness.
