African Honeymoons

Do you envisage a safari honeymoon with a private picnic overlooking the savannas of the Serengeti à la Meryl Streep in ‘Out of Africa’? Have you imagined yourself soaring serenely over the vast plains of the Masai Mara in a hot-air balloon, drifting silently over herds of game as the sun’s first golden rays kiss the horizon? Possibly you’ve day-dreamed of a safari & beach honeymoon, with azure seas and secluded palm-fringed powdery beaches, candlelit dinners on a desolate pearly isle lapped by tepid turquoise waters and doused in buckets of tropical moonlight. Or maybe, a foodie honeymoon is what your heart desires, with crisp white tablecloths, silver service and gourmet dining, in some of the finest restaurants in one of the most beautiful and cosmopolitan cities in the world, Cape Town… all accompanied by premium wines, nurtured to ripeness in the lush vineyards and valleys of the Cape Winelands nearby. All of these magical honeymoon reveries effortlessly become reality in Africa.

Safari Honeymoons, Tailored-Made

Your ultimate honeymoon may be realized by blending the adventure & romance of Africa, with world class, five star luxury, and there really are very few experiences more memorable than an authentic African safari honeymoon.

Begin your romantic journey at the iconic and awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, visit the delights of enchanting Cape Town, or drift dreamily in a mokoro along the watery channels of the lush Okavango Delta, visiting the wondrous herds of elephant in Chobe in Botswana. Another popular option is to combine the great wildebeest migration in Kenya and Tanzania with a sojourn to enchanting Zanzibar for some sun kissed bliss. Alternatively, and maybe more to your flavour, experience a winning honeymoon favourite – visit the famed Kruger National Park and Sabi Sand Reserve to encounter extraordinary wildlife and outstanding game viewing, with the opportunity to spot Africa’s fabled Big 5.

Indulge in sunset game-drives in breath-taking wilderness areas, followed by G&T sundowners and intimate bush dinners for two under twinkling African stars, accompanied by crackling log fires, sumptuous snacks and award-winning red wine, all whilst listening to the roar of the majestic lion. Lavish private suites await, with luxurious linens and extravagant comforts, private plunge pools, indulgent amenities and exclusive understated service.
