Why take an African safari honeymoon?
Africa is the perfect destination for honeymooners. Many of our honeymoon safari clients like a blend of adventure, romance, and relaxation, and Africa is the perfect place for all three.

Not only does Africa have the best in adventure and excitement with honeymoon safari tours, but it also has a wide variety of romantic activities such as sunset dinners, wine tours, and private river cruises. For relaxation, enjoy pampering spa treatments, horseback riding, and strolls along the stunning beaches and coastline.

Will we have plenty of privacy on our luxury honeymoon safari?
Absolutely. The staff of every lodge and camp is very discreet and knows when to approach and when to stay away. You’ll have plenty of time alone but will enjoy the ultimate in luxury service at the same time. And if you desire even more privacy, all you need to do is ask.

What kinds of romantic things can we do in Africa?
The great thing about a luxury African honeymoon safari is that every detail is high-end and completely customized based on your personal preferences. Therefore, you experience Africa exactly the way you want, when you want.

Do you want a sunset dinner for two every night in the crisp night air, or would you rather enjoy dinner in your chalet? Do you want to visit the fluffy white beaches on a Mozambique honeymoon safari? Has one of your lifelong dreams been to view the Big Five on a Botswana honeymoon safari? Whether you crave adventure or a romantic getaway, you’ll find it in Africa.

What kind of accommodations will we have on our African safari honeymoon?
Africa’s accommodations range from mobile tents to luxurious five-star hotels, and lavish chalets to romantic “tree houses.” Before you think, “No tents on my honeymoon,” let us clarify what African mobile tents are—spacious, intimate, and high-end. These aren’t like the tents you put up in the woods when you were kids.

If you’d rather not tent it during your African safari honeymoon, chalets are a great medium between a five-star hotel and a mobile tent. They have a permanent location and boast 19th-century safari décor and romance. Most chalets have an open design, which makes them airy and spacious. You’ll truly feel one with nature in these luxurious, private accommodations.

How is the food?
In a word, amazing. You’ll experience authentic, flavorful African cuisine made with only the finest and freshest ingredients.

What kind of budget do we need for a South African honeymoon safari?
For a fully customized luxury African safari honeymoon, your budget must be a minimum of $10,000 per person. This includes all transportation within Africa, your luxurious and spacious accommodations, outstanding service, private tours and safaris, and intimate dinners. It does not include international airfare.

How far in advance should we book our luxury honeymoon safari?
The more lead time, the better. Depending on the time of year you want to take your romantic honeymoon safari, you need to book anywhere from six months to over a year ahead. If you wish to take your honeymoon during the holidays in December, you need to plan 12–18 months in advance to reserve your spot in Africa’s most romantic accommodations.

No matter whether you wish to take a Zambia honeymoon safari or enjoy an extended romantic stay in Victoria Falls, we suggest you book your honeymoon safari as soon as possible so that each of your accommodation preferences can be met.

How do we go about planning a customized luxury honeymoon safari?
Contact us to get started. With a customized itinerary, you’ll have the exact combination of activities you wish. For example, if you want 75% of your Botswana honeymoon safari to be relaxing and romantic and 25% of your trip to be full of adventure, or vice versa, a personalized itinerary accommodates your specific desires.
