Take in Africa's highest peak, vast Savannah, and idyllic offshore islandsThe wildlife watching will also leave you speechless
Situated on the East Coast of Africa, Kenya’s stunning natural beauty and abundance of wildlife make the country a nature-lover’s paradise.
This remarkable country in East Africa is full of natural wonders. From its diverse and magnificent landscapes to its fabulous wildlife, Tanzania is truly a nature-lover’s dream destination.
Comprising numerous beautiful islands speckling the Indian Ocean, you could hardly wish for a more picturesque location for a relaxing break than Zanzibar.
A beautiful patchwork of landscapes home to an astounding variety of animals, birds and plants, Rwanda and Uganda have limitless appeal for any adventurous traveller.
An island paradise like nowhere else in the world, Madagascar is a must for anyone who lives for a bit of adventure. With unrivalled animal and plant life coupled with magnificent and varied scenery.
In beautiful destinations such as Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar, you can look forward to an abundance of pristine beaches, rugged mountains, vast savannahs and wildlife safaris.
Unquestionably one of Earth’s most captivating regions, our holidays in East Africa offer extraordinary landscapes and warm, welcoming people.
Renowned for its safaris, Kenya is the go-to place to see wild animals in their natural habitat. This picturesque country is home to sprawling deserts and national parks where all kinds of exotic wildlife roam. Azure holidays take you to the heart of the savannah, where you can wake up to the sight of wildebeests, zebras and elephants huddled around a waterhole.
As well as the chance to see some spectacular animals, the beauty of Kenyan landscapes is hard to beat, from scorching deserts to snow-capped mountains, with palm-fringed beaches to boot. A pioneer of environmental conservation, Kenya is known for its dedication towards protecting both the wildlife and the culture of its people.
Tanzania is the land of the Serengeti and Mount Kilimanjaro. There’s plenty of scope for adventures in this vibrant country, whether it’s mountain climbing, hot air balloon flights or exploring national parks.
Azure holidays in Tanzania invite you to stay in some of the country's most scenic locations and see wildlife up close. Make base in one of our luxurious lodges for the chance to encounter elephants, chimpanzees, hippos, giraffes and even lions.
If you’re looking for a relaxing, sun-soaked getaway, Tanzania also has many alluring beaches on the Indian Ocean coastline, where you can sink your toes into powder-soft sand and admire the stunning sea views.
The majestic Mount Kilimanjaro is a must-see when on holiday in Tanzania. Not only is it Africa’s highest mountain, but it also contains the world’s highest, free-standing volcano. Those who fancy a challenge can brave the famously long mountain trek - but remember that this difficult ascent can take several days to complete and is certainly not for the faint-hearted.
Though officially a region of Tanzania, Zanzibar has a unique cultural heritage all of its own. It’s an island paradise where you can wander narrow streets among ancient sultans’ palaces, Portuguese forts and lush gardens.
The island has a thriving spice industry, with many working plantations that grow vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and other fragrant seasonings. Meanwhile, the island’s sprawling coastline is home to a thriving fish industry. Head to the harbours to see the fishing boats setting sail for the day’s catch, many of which will end up on the local restaurant menus.
Zanzibar’s coastlines have the reputation of being home to some of the most idyllic resorts in the world. An Azure holiday to this archipelago centres around the beautiful shorelines, where guests can choose to explore the landscapes or simply relax and unwind with lazy beach days.
Azure’s resorts in East Africa cater for all needs, whether you’re looking for a laid-back getaway, a holiday filled with activities and adventures, or a mixture of the two. Why not contact our friendly team today to find out more about our bespoke holiday packages?

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
