African Safari Honeymoon Ideas

African Safari Honeymoon Ideas

Romantic Safari Lodges and White Sand Beaches

Africa is the perfect place for a honeymoon. It is a continent touched by romance, from its vast savannas to its castaway tropical beaches and its boutique safari lodges hidden deep within the bush. A honeymoon in Africa will give you a truly unforgettable mix of wildlife adventure, exclusive luxury and tropical beach relaxation. Nowhere else in the world can you combine the excitement of a Big Five safari with an idyllic island or beach paradise.

Safari & Beach HoneymoonAfrica also has an array of hugely romantic accommodation, from cosy tented camps under starry skies to traditional wooden lodges with private balconies (or even jacuzzis) looking out over the bush, to exclusive hotels with panoramic views over mountains and vineyards and luxury beach escapes on the shores of the Indian Ocean. During each stay, you’ll be treated to outstanding hospitality, delicious meals and fine local wine, all under the sizzling African sun.

Whatever your idea of romance may be, we guarantee that Africa has got it covered. Sip champagne at sunset on the Serengeti plains, walk hand in hand along a white sandy beach with the warm Indian Ocean lapping at your toes, enjoy a private picnic in the sweeping Cape Winelands, or take an epic train journey through magnificent scenery on a beautifully restored train - it’s totally up to you.

If you’re after the romance of a real ‘Out of Africa’ experience, we can even help you arrange to get married during your safari. Saying ‘I do‘ in the heart of the African bush is something that you are sure to remember forever. We are delighted to offer a bespoke wedding service to happy couples planning to say their vows somewhere both wild or romantic - or a combination of both! We’ll help you find the perfect place for your ceremony, book the minister or officials for a civil service, and organise flowers, the wedding cake, a photographer...and anything else that you wish for! 

Wedding At Savanna Game ReserveWe love nothing more than arranging wedding and honeymoons to Africa, and we’ll help you turn your dream into a reality, whether it’s luxury all the way, an intrepid safari adventure or a blend of both!

Every honeymoon that we put together is completely unique, based on the individual needs and budget of the couple. Whether you’re looking for total luxury in every sense or if you are working to a more modest budget, we’ll help you get the best honeymoon experience for your money. Our aim is to get you the honeymoon experience that you’ve always imagined, so we’ll really listen to your personal hopes and interests.

Below, we’ve outlined some suggestions that have been popular with honeymooners in the past. Hopefully, these will give you some inspiration to start building your own unique honeymoon with us. All of the ideas below can be tweaked to suit you personally, so please do get in touch if any of them catch your eye.
