Your honeymoon is one vacation that must be perfect. But, with so many beautiful places to visit, how can you select which country is best for a honeymoon?
Africa honeymoon locations are as varied as the continent itself and maybe enjoyed independently or in combination. Africa provides exceptional hotels in breathtaking settings, discreet service and delectable cuisine, complete isolation and exclusivity, and world-class travel logistics. Enjoy candlelit dinners on a tropical beach or under a starry sky in the forest, or simply relax in your private pool.
Take a hot air balloon flight over the Masai Mara to see the wildlife from above.
Soaring gently and quietly over the African wilderness in a hot air balloon at sunrise, you and your loved one will get a bird’s eye perspective.
After an early morning coffee together, you’ll board a beautiful, colorful balloon at daybreak to float above the amber-hued Great Rift Valley and the animal parade below. Bring your camera—your honeymoon images will impress your pals back home.
Take a private evening game drive to see the animals come alive, and keep an eye out for the elusive leopard.
The conservancy areas in Kenya allow visitors to watch wildlife after dark, which is a great time to spot some of the more elusive creatures that prefer to hide during the day.
Can you imagine yourself and your spouse on a game drive at dusk in a safari truck with your Maasai driver? After a calm day in the heat of the sun, watch the animals come to life. Returning to a campfire with a glass of cool wine or a cocktail in hand? By comparison, a Caribbean cruise is bland.
Enjoy a sunrise sail on the Chobe River while watching elephants shower.
The vast herds of elephants that live in Botswana’s Chobe National Park are well-known. Their daily routine includes a morning shower in the river before heading to the river’s edge to feast on the luscious river grass that grows abundantly there.
Why not begin your life together with a romantic morning sail along the Chobe River? Bring your camera and take shots of the elephants…and the hippos…and the crocodiles warming up in the sun while sipping your morning coffee or tea. If you enjoy birds, Chobe is a haven for kingfishers, waders, and other rare water birds.
If mornings aren’t your thing, a romantic sunset sail with a bottle of wine and some savory appetizers is always a good option.
Relax in nature’s haven of tranquility with a couple’s massage while watching antelope and zebra pass by the open spa terrace. Your romantic honeymoon safari will not only be a wild experience, but also a de-stressing retreat, with a variety of treatments combining nature’s healing essence and a calm location.
Getting Up Close and Personal with Africa’s Penguins
Why not go on a safari and celebrate your relationship with another animal that often mates for life? We’re talking about penguins, of course! Our guests are frequently astonished to learn that penguins may be found in Africa, as we usually associate them with arctic species. Cape Penguins, on the other hand, flourish in two colonies near Cape Town, South Africa. We are overjoyed that these intelligent and active creatures established colonies in the 1980s, as their presence offers joy to so many of our visitors.
These Cape Penguins may be seen from well-built wooden pathways at Stony Point if you’re interested in seeing Cape Town. Going to Boulders Beach, where you can swim near to and see Africa’s penguins, is a better approach to spending time with them.
Intimate walking safari
You and your spouse will journey across the African wilderness, led by your expert safari guide, to experience what it’s like to walk in the footsteps of the animals you’ve come to see. On a walking safari, you might see giraffes, zebra, elephants in distant bands, and more. It’s awe-inspiring to stand in the footprint of an elephant. Running your hands through savannah grasses or staring off towards the breathtakingly blue horizon are both enjoyable experiences.
When you tour the area on foot instead of in a safari vehicle, it’s amazing how different the safari experience is. Walking safaris are an amazing way to add some excitement to your adventure.
Witness the great migration in the Serengeti
Serengeti under canvas is a magnificent camp that travels about the park all year, getting visitors as near to the Great Migration as possible. Seeing over 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra move in harmony is a mind-blowing and moving event. This lovely camp can assist you in reconnecting with nature by returning to the basics (in lavish style though, we promise). You’ll get clear views of the stars in each Bedouin-style tent, which boasts beautiful décor and luxurious Persian rugs.
