A great way to truly unwind after your wedding

Home > Experiences > Honeymoon Safaris


A private ‘treehouse’ where only gentle birdsong is the soundtrack and your butler discreetly attends to your every need. An extravagant suite filled with art in a remote private concession packed with wildlife. Watching a passing parade of elephant, antelope and zebra from your veranda that overlooks a waterhole. Or how about an island getaway after all the dawn wake-up calls that are a necessary part of going on safari? A honeymoon in Africa is the stuff of dreams where superb service, exciting activities like hot-air balloon rides, afternoon siestas under frothy mosquito netting, and nights around a crackling fire all combine to make a vacation to remember forever.

There are as many types of honeymoons as there are honeymooners, and a honeymoon safari can be easily tailored to your interests, budget and time available. Consider what you want from this special time in your marriage and let us help you plan it. Perhaps you’d prefer lodges that don’t take children; that have intimate rather than communal dining; and suites that come with private pools, outdoor showers and even star beds so you can sleep under the Milky Way. If you want even more privacy and pampering, think of lodges with wine cellars, lavish spas and private guides… Best of all, many will offer special deals for married couples and make sure the petal-covered bed of their honeymoon suite is ready and waiting for you. This is the time to treat yourselves.

Botswana hits all the right notes for a honeymoon safari not only because you can move every few days to a completely different environment but the lodges here are the last word in romance. A classic itinerary might take you from the Makgadikgadi to the Okavango Delta, to end on the floodplains of the mighty Chobe River. Along the way you can enjoy sleepouts under the stars, serene mokoro excursions for two with sundowners in a gorgeous spot and sunset cruises that drift into balmy nights of private dining by candlelight. Throw in masses of wildlife and you have the perfect honeymoon safari.


Tanzania is geared for couples and has many outstanding lodges in private areas that offer spectacular game viewing. You could wake up in a four-poster bed on the Ngorongoro Crater, enjoy a siesta in one of the Grumeti’s luxurious camps and even toast your future next to a roaring fire in a space-age ‘bubble’ tent near Olmoti Volcano. If that’s not enough, how about a thatch beach hut in the Mahale Mountains or exclusive chimp trekking on Rubondo Island? Naturally, no Tanzania honeymoon safari is complete without time in the Serengeti, enjoying a champagne breakfast after your hot-air balloon flight…


Zanzibar is an easy fit as it’s part of Tanzania, meaning no need for complex visas or other requirements. You could wake up near snow-dusted Mount Kilimanjaro and end your day sipping cocktails on Nungwi Beach, watching the dhows make their way home (the next evening, it could be you on a dhow, enjoying the spice-scented air and refreshing Indian Ocean breeze). Zanzibar offers the exciting hustle and bustle of ancient Stone Town but also private islands in the archipelago like Mnemba. Pemba Island has a full ‘underwater room’: your bed is encased in glass so you can watch the passing marine life!
