Travelling by Hammock

Travelling by hammock is a bit tongue-in-cheek, but relaxation on the beach combines well with time on safari. Options include the coasts of Kenya and Mozambique, Mauritius the Seychelles and Zanzibar. The choice will generally be dictated by your choice of safari destination.

It's worth pointing out that a safari can also be relaxing, with a natural rhythm to the day which mirrors the activity of the wildlife. Early morning starts may sound intimidating, but it's the best time of day, and the afternoon siesta can be spent snoozing in your tent or perhaps around the camp pool. Indeed several camps that I've stayed in recently had hammocks available!
