Adventure Beach, Sail and Safari

Getaway Tours and Safaris offer the most incredible range of exciting adventures as optional extras on your trip to Southern and East Africa!

We suggest your optional adventures are booked before you leave for your holiday so that our office can book your space and plan ahead of time and of course, negotiate best prices for you. You can book spontaneously on some of the adventures, but we can’t ensure you get the best deal or a space.
