Safari Honeymoon


The ultimate romantic experience for couples

There surely is no destination more romantic than Africa. The continent of classic romance, natural beauty and crimson sunsets provides a wonderfully romantic and magical experience for honeymooning couples. There are so many destinations and experiences to choose from. One of the most popular honeymoon options is to combine a few nights on a luxury safari with a few nights in a remote beach paradise. 

Whether you're interested in the luxurious lodges of East Africa, a Big 5 safari in the Kruger National Park, or the white sands and warm waters of the Indian Ocean, there is something for you. Of course, there are some lodges that go above and beyond and help create the perfect honeymoon experience. We’ve compiled a short list of these lodges to help you decide.
