Safari and Beach Honeymoons

The classic combination of pampering and lazing with thrills and exotic adventure; the safari and beach honeymoon should be on (repeat) prescription.

Overview

Many of our honeymoon clients are keen on a safari and beach honeymoon. They choose a honeymoon in Africa for the unsurpassed safari experience. But they still want some R&R at the end! This is a brilliant solution if one of you is more of an outdoorsy, nature-orientated type and one of you prefers the 'tried and trusted' appeal of a really great ocean-side getaway. But it works just as well if both of you need some 'down time' as well as an adventure.

But where to choose? That depends on the time of year, your preferred style of beach resort. And also, more mundanely, on your wallet. But here’s a summary of some of our best safari and beach honeymoon combinations…

South Africa

South Africa probably offers some of the best year-round game-viewing. So if your wedding doesn’t co-incide with the ‘classic safari season’ of the dry southern hemisphere winter (June to September), then a South Africa safari and beach honeymoon could be perfect. Check out the KwaZulu Natal game reserves such as Phinda or Thanda. These work wonderfully with the remote coastal eco-lodges such as Thonga Beach Lodge or White Pearl Resorts just over the border in Mozambique.

South Africa with Mozambique, Mauritius or the Seychelles

We recommend this combination if you are travelling in the classic safari season of June to early September. Frankly, the South African beaches may not offer the heat you’re looking for. Nor the classic tropical beach scene complete with gentle lapping waters and swaying palms. If you are looking for some of the world’s most chic beach resorts, look no further than…

Romantic beach retreats

Zambia & Malawi

For a more unusual combination, why not combine the South Luangwa or Lower Zambezi in Zambia with the white sandy beaches of Lake Malawi, only a short flight away. This comes complete with romantic island hideaways, freshwater snorkeling or diving, plus sunset cruises. And, of course, those classic Lake Malawi sunsets.

Tanzania or Kenya

Where else can you witness great herds of game migrating across acacia-studded plains than Tanzania and Kenya in East Africa? Then finish up with relaxing by the Indian Ocean on Zanzibar, Pemba or Mnemba Island. The ultimate in safari and beach honeymoon options...

Madagascar

Few would tout the rainforests of Madagascar as the average honeymoon choice. But a passion for travel sometimes leads beyond the predictable. More adventurous couples can mix time spent touring or trekking in search of exotic birds or lemurs with a few days being pampered in these small, rustically luxurious havens. Check out Ile Sainte Marie in the East or Nosy Bay and its smaller islands.

"I would like to thank you for the very full and comprehensive travel documents you put together for us – it made our trip so easy! The organisation was perfect and it was so helpful to have contact names for our hosts along the way!
