Tennis is generally available in most urban areas across Africa, especially those which were previously centres of colonial administration.
Away from the main towns however, at more remote camps, lodges and resorts, tennis courts are relatively uncommon and are often an indicator of a rather dated or mass market tonality, although there are notable exceptions.
One interesting phenomenon in Africa is the presence of tennis courts without surrounding fences. We are not sure whether this is an echo back to the earliest days of the game, or whether it is something unique to the continent where ball boys could be obtained for very low cost. Either way it seems a bit daft these days.
If playing tennis during your trip is important to you, then please do add it to your wishlist whilst searching for lodges and sample trips or mention it whilst working with us on your trip.
