Safari Honeymoons

Imagine a private dinner on your deck listening to the animal sounds of the bush all around, or sleeping out on your private deck under a star-lit sky.

Overview

On your first night on honeymoon, on safari...unbelievable array of stars in an inky sky, cool drinks around a crackling bonfire, the tempting smell of a delicious meal. The anticipation of the adventure at dawn the next morning, when you head out into the bush. Isn't this incredibly romantic? A once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon to remember and tell your children and grandchildren about?

Okay, we accept it won't be absolutely everyone's dream. But not everyone loves the beach and, even if you are not a nature-lover from childhood, maybe a safari could be your perfect honeymoon too? Given the chance again, I'd shortlist Botswana, Zambia or the Serengeti in Tanzania or Kenya. A safari honeymoon is certainly not an inexpensive option. But it is a truly memorable one and could be the start of a newfound love...of the great outdoors.

You won't have to rough it on a safari honeymoon. Such a honeymoon is an intimate experience with a good dash of style and romance. There are luxurious lodges to choose from which offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences. But there are also more modest safari camps which simply ooze character and romance. Either way a safari honeymoon offers you some of the most beautiful scenery in Africa.

Botswana Honeymoon Ideas

Imagine taking a quad bike in the Makgadikgadi salt pans. Silently walking past a herd of buffalo on a bush walk. Enjoying a sundowner as the sun sets over the waters of the Okavango Delta?

Safari Honeymoons in Zambia & Victoria Falls

There’s an innate romance of staying in a remote, utterly beautiful piece of wilderness. Why not stay on an island in the middle of the Zambezi River. Or head to the Lower Zambezi, one of our favorite areas, which is packed with wildlife, adventure and a romantic charm. Think of canoeing gently through the Zambezi’s channels with your loved one. Or enjoying a private starlit dinner on a sandbank by the river.

No Zambia honeymoon would be complete without the magnificent Victoria Falls. Spend your days boating on the river, canoeing, lazing by a pool or sipping cocktails. All this while idly watching hippo frolic on the opposite bank. However, if the mood takes you, there is a huge range of adrenalin-surging options on offer as well. Such as white water rafting and helicopter flips. Or you may like to swim to Devil's pool at the very edge of the Falls on Livingstone Island? There is also bridge swinging on offer and the treetop canopy tours.

Sampan in the Zambezi river

Kenya Safari Honeymoons

The Masai Mara offers big game viewing a-plenty. Plus there are certain extravagant pleasures that set your heart aflutter - and ballooning over the Masai Mara at dawn is one of them. Truth told, it probably isn’t the ‘best’ way to see the game, but it’s a huge treat.

Highlights

  • Imagine sleeping out on your private deck under a star-lit sky.
  • Or silently gliding on a dug-out canoe through the lily-studded waters of the Okavango delta, watching elephants come to drink at the water’s edge.
  • Perhaps you may like to enjoy a private dinner on a sampan on the Zambezi river?
  • Or simply relax on your deck listening to the animal sounds of the bush all around you.

Exceeded our expectations

"From our first phone call, our requirements for the holiday were quickly and efficiently met and the overall standard of accommodation booked for us met and, in some cases, exceeded our expectations.

A varied and fantastic holiday that we will never forget

"Milandi interpreted all our needs perfectly and the tailor-made holiday was way beyond our expectations. As a first time visitor to South Africa, we were quite apprehensive about safety, but all the places chosen for us to stay in were comfortable and hospitable. " Mr Andrew Thompson

10 out of 10 for everything

"The holiday was exceptionally good and we all enjoyed every moment, especially my son Stephen (10 years old). The fact that Stephen enjoyed it says a lot since he is a seasoned traveller (as are most expat kids) having been to almost 20 countries already in his lifetime. We returned with more than a thousand photos and wonderful memories of what Africa can offer at its best " Family De Waal,

Impeccable

"Just a quick note to let you know we have arrived home safely and Sari and myself had a wonderful time in South Africa and your planning was impeccable. Overall you have done a wonderful job . It is highly appreciated and we are sorry we did not get a chance to meet you in Cape Town. " Mrs Sara & Mr Andre, USA
