Soft-edged savannahs, palm-fringed beaches, footprint-free private islands… Africa is home to some of the world’s most idyllic, honeymoon-perfect destinations as well as sensational, made-for-two accommodation, with destinations ranging from private tropical islands to mountain-framed vineyards – not to mention the world’s greatest wildlife reserves – it’s impossible to visit Africa and not be swept away by the sheer romance of it all – so where better to spend your honeymoon than on this extraordinary continent?
An Africa honeymoon package brings together all the elements you want in a romantic journey – luxurious accommodation in spell-binding locations; discreet service and sumptuous cuisine; total privacy and exclusivity – and delivers it all as seamlessly and safely as anywhere else in the world. Enjoy candle-lit dinners for two on the beach or in the bush; make use of a private guide for bespoke safari activities or simply soak up the sun by your private pool or on a footprint-free beach.
But if you can’t decide between the thrills of a big game safari and the indulgence of a beach holiday, the answer is simple: combine the two. An African safari and beach honeymoon is one of the continent’s unrivalled experiences. Usually opening with a big game safari, you’ll enjoy candlelight and canvas romance in Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves before revelling in the sensation of sand between your toes at some of her best Indian Ocean destinations.
Well-served by international flights and smooth-running regional logistics, Africa’s diverse and often remote destinations are far more accessible than you might think and can easily be combined to make for truly amazing honeymoon itineraries.
Blend the charm and culture of Cape Town and the Cape Winelands with the undiluted raw thrills of a Big 5 Kruger safari or all the drama of Victoria Falls. If it’s a safari and beach honeymoon you’re after, big game destinations such as the Kruger combine easily with the manicured beaches and golf courses of Mauritius, or you may want to island-hop in style around Zanzibar, Mombasa,Seychelles or Mozambique’s Indian Ocean island archipelagos. If it’s romance on a classic African safari you want, then matchless big game destinations such as Botswana’s Okavango Deltaand Tanzania’s Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater feature in our best African honeymoon packages too, along with Kenya’s peerless Masai Mara reserve and Uganda’s Murchison Falls National Park.
Africa honeymoon destinations are as diverse as the continent itself from White-sand beaches, teeming savannahs and dramatic mountain ranges – all can be experienced as stand-alone destinations or in exciting combination with each other.
