Who says we’re not romantic
We’re getting Royal Wedding fever in the neck from the UK media at the moment – we’d much rather be planning safaris…but we have come up with some ideal honeymoon escapes, just incase Mesdames Kate, Lily and Kate (Middleton, Allen and Moss!) still require help with their plans on where to head after the big day. And there’s plenty of money to be saved on travelling before the end of May!
Of course, you don’t have to be well-heeled to elope on one of the following ‘once in a lifetime trips’.
Victoria Falls and Big Five – This is one of our all time favourite honeymoon safaris. Three nights at Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, including a guided tour of the ‘smoke that thunders’ and a sunset cruise along the mighty Zambezi, followed by three nights at an intimate bush camp set in Zimbabwe’s premier wildlife destination and conservation area, Hwange National Park. Now that’s what we call the perfect match!

Flying Safari in Kenya If you picture yourself more of a Robert Redford and Meryl Streep, then perhaps you’d prefer to create your own ‘Out of Africa’ romantic adventure, flying from the wild northern Samburu National Reserve to the game-rich Masai Mara, staying in intimate camps with a hint of yesteryear.

Cape Town and Winelands – Or you may prefer to switch your safari for some crisp Sauvignon Blanc. Discover South Africa’s most romantic city, Cape Town, with its rolling hills, sun-kissed bays and bountiful vineyards.
We have some top honeymoon tips on our website but the best thing is to chat to us in person. (Chris will tell you to go to the South Luangwa, John will send you into the heart of the Serengeti plains and Trish will find you a luxurious island hide-away.)
