Africa & Indian Ocean Private Sailing and Yachting Holidays
There are few experiences which can compete with a private sailing holiday. The lure of the ocean, constantly changing, pristine, thunderous, alive or calm and azure, transfixing us with its infinite horizon. In practical terms, it offers one of the finest family holidays where quality time can be spent together, from snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing and sea kayaking to swimming with dolphins and whale sharks. Lazy lunches on private islands, swimming in the sea, dining on freshly caught fish, learning to sail – the possibilities are endless. Throughout Africa and the Indian Ocean, we offer the most wonderful private sailing holidays.
These can range from a live aboard boat in the Maldives, to a dhow sailing holiday in Mozambique, sailing during the day with your crew and sleeping out in a tent on a different island every night, commanding your own island each day and meeting the local people. Take a dhow on the Kenyan coast, as the Arab traders did centuries ago, sleeping on board and visiting magnificent islands such as Lamu. Or perhaps take a catamaran and sail the Indian Ocean, in northern Mozambique in the Quirimbas archipelago, Madagascar and Tanzania. Charter a yacht in Mauritius or the Seychelles.Sail in the Andaman islands or a boat along the backwaters of India in Kerala, where one can witness the local people bartering and plying their trade on the waters. Cycle past villages during the day, absorbing the pulsating rhythm of life. With your very own water playground devoid of others on your doorstep, this is one of the most exhilarating and wonderful ways to go on holiday, as a stand-alone or perhaps after a safari.
