Booking a holiday in Africa

The vast ‘Dark Continent’ of Africa stretches from the Mediterranean shoreline in the North, to the point where the Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic in South Africa’s Cape Province.

In between the vastly contrasting coasts lies Mount Kilimanjaro, the Great Rift Valley, Victoria Falls and the White and Blue Niles

The Indian Ocean coast of Africa is also the place for exotic beach holidays such as Mombasa in Kenya, the island of Zanzibar, and increasingly the shores of Mozambique in the South.

Perhaps you are looking to combine a safari with beach, drive the famous Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, or perhaps combine Kenya with Mauritius. Almost anything is possible when you let one of our travel experts take care of things for you. Visit your nearest Millington Travel holiday shop and turn that African dream into reality.

Best Times to Visit Africa

When you visit Africa will very much depend on what you are planning on doing – Safari, Cape Wine Route, Beach Holiday, Gorilla Trekking etc.

For Safari’s, in general the dry season of June to October is best as that brings out the animals to watering holes for best viewing. If you are after Wildebeest migrations timing will depend on what you want to see and where. Calving happens from February to March in the Southern Serengeti, the breeding season from April to may in the Western and Central Serengeti, the Grumeti River Crossings in May and June in Central Serengeti, the Mara River Crossings in July and August in Northern Serengeti and Masai Mara and migrations November to January in the Masai Mara, Northern and Southern Serengeti
