Honeymoon Safaris

Some easy plans for making the most of a honeymoon safari or a simple romantic break to Africa’s wilderness and beaches.

Your honeymoon is the most important holiday you’ll ever plan; a special journey together creating memories that last a lifetime.

Whatever a couple has in mind, they should be suitably catered to in Africa. Would you prefer remote adventures or exclusive lodges with fine dining, pampering and personal butlers? Vast open plains teeming with wildlife or idyllic deserted beaches? Either way, Africa has everything you need.

If you’re after a barefoot ‘Robinson Crusoe’-style escape, try a dhow safari in Mozambique’s Quirimbas Archipelago. Here you can sail among mangroves and deserted islands, sleep on their shores at night or island-hop around Mauritius or the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean.

For the perfect combination of bush and beach, explore Southern Tanzania’s less-visited National Parks – like Ruaha or the Selous – as both have stunning wildlife and smaller crowds. Then, head to the exotic Spice Island of Zanzibar to dip your toes in turquoise waters and walk for miles along pristine white sands.

Iconic destinations make for memorable honeymoons too, like the spectacular Victoria Falls with lunar rainbows in its spray. This could be combined with a safari in Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe or Zambia, as these all offer beautiful, exclusive lodges. Or for unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime adventures together, try climbing Kilimanjaro or canoeing the mighty Zambezi.

All that really matters is that you have the honeymoon you want, and for this, Africa rarely disappoints.
