Stunning reasons why East Africa is the perfect honeymoon destination : Choosing the right honeymoon spot can be hard, especially if one person wants excitement and the other wants to learn about culture or just relax. Africa has the right mix of things to do for every kind of traveler during the honeymoon safari. These are the most enticing reasons to choose this diverse land and exotic experiences to add to your upcoming honeymoon.

Relax in the Cape Winelands.

You’ve already been through a lot with your wedding, so planning and going on your honeymoon safari shouldn’t be stressful. Planning a safari can be fun, especially if you have a team to help you find the best safari activities and camps that are also good for the environment. Don’t worry about the “what ifs” and rest easy knowing that you have local hosts and a 24/7 Concierge team to help with any changes, test or add experiences you haven’t even thought of.

In Africa, many places to stay are in remote, secluded parts of the wild that are perfect for a romantic vacation. You don’t have to worry about crowds or busy towns because “physically distancing” is easy when you spend time in nature. In Africa, where time seems to stop, it’s easy to disconnect and enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, starry nights, and other feelings.

In South Africa’s famous Kapama Private Game Reserve, you can see the Big Five and other wild animals right outside your door. This will give you and your partner memories that will last a lifetime. On our Under Kenyan Skies tour, the magical Loisaba Star Beds give you a whole new way to see nature from above. You and your partner are the only ones there. You’re lying on a hand-made four-poster bed with a view of the valley and the stars above.

Classic Romance in Nature.

Africa is a great safari destination to be romantic no matter what you’re doing because of its majestic nature surroundings. Take a hot air balloon safari over the Serengeti to see the animals in one of our favorite secret spots on this famous savannah. There is always time to enjoy a colorful and relaxing sundowner, maybe on a river tour on the Zambezi while looking at the amazing Victoria Falls.

You can enjoy private dining with the beautiful scenery of nature, wildlife, mountains, or the ocean as a backdrop. For example, at the award-winning 5-star Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa on our South African Tapestry, you can enjoy a romantic picnic for two with the Twelve Apostles mountain range and the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop.

Create a special bond through the culture and giving back.

Spending time with the local people is one of the most satisfying parts of any safari to Africa. We make it a point to do this on all of our safaris as part of our commitment to sustainable tourism. Listening to stories about the Samburu and Maasai people’s way of life or going to the Lewa Conservancy to see the school kids and learn how the Samburu are pushing education is a unique way to bond in Kenya.

At the TAASA camp in Tanzania, you can spend time with the Maasai of Ololosokwan, who are always happy to talk about their culture. They will teach you about the environment, how trees and bushes are used as medicine in Maasai culture, and how to track animals.

An enlivening and sincere experience to share with your spouse is adopting an endangered animal, such as a baby elephant with the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi.  On our Enchanting Africa safari you will meet the Trust and its Orphan’s Project and spend time with the elephant you adopted from the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust before your trip. When you stay at the famous Giraffe Manor, a private sanctuary for giraffes, you can have breakfast with the rare Rothschild giraffes that live there. They will stick their long necks through the windows to say hello and look for a treat.

No Need to Compromise – Enjoy the Bush and the Beach.

Travellers may think that Africa is all about wild animal adventures, but there are also beautiful islands where you can rest on the beach and explore the ocean. These islands have white sand beaches and exotic marine life. If you want to see the best of both African worlds, a tour in the bush and a safari to the beautiful islands of Zanzibar or Mozambique is a great choice.

Mozambique has a coastline that goes from South Africa to Tanzania. Along the clear blue waves of the Indian Ocean are pristine and less-visited resorts. After seeing the lively culture of Cape Town and going on exciting game drives in Kruger Private Reserve, you can end your romantic African Romance safari in one of Mozambique’s best private homes on Azura Benguerra Island, which has a private butler, a private sun deck, and an infinity pool.

Off the coast of Tanzania is the beautiful island of Zanzibar, which is an excellent safari destination to relax. The island has secret beaches, lakes, and coral reefs that haven’t been touched by humans. This makes it one of the best places to dive in the world.

Gorilla trekking and chimpanzee trekking

On your honeymoon safari to Africa, you can enjoy being in the presence of these wonderful primates with your spouse, that will offer you unforgettable safari memories for one hour. That’s in Gorilla trekking safaris Bwindi Impenetrable national park and Mgahinga gorilla national park and Volcanoes national park. Then chimpanzee trekking in Kibale national park Uganda and Nyungwe national park in Rwanda.
