Romantic getaways in Zimbabwe

Your honeymoon is something that only happens once in a lifetime, so you want to make it a vacation that you’ll remember.

The only issue is that there are so many places to see in Zimbabwe that it might be overwhelming. That’s where we come in - keep reading for our picks for the best Zimbabwe honeymoons.

A romantic getaway in Zimbabwe can be a romantic dream whether you’re into luxury or intrepid adventure: think picture-perfect sunsets in huge expanses of wilderness, dinners for two by candlelight in the bush, sipping gin and tonics on a boat cruising the calm waters of Lake Kariba or the Zambezi River, sleeping under the stars on a remote river island and camping in the wild.

Romantic Getaways in Zimbabwe

Many of Zimbabwe’s luxury lodges and camps are tucked away on private concessions all over the country and have been set up with exclusive intimacy in mind, which means secluded rooms with private decks, outdoor showers and plunge pools, the option of private guided game drives and private meals set out for just the two of you in your suite or out in the wild. 

Honeymoon places to visit in Zimbabwe

Most luxury lodgings also offer honeymoon packages and romantic touches such as relaxing spa treatments and sleep-out platforms, where you can spend a night in a comfortable bed on an elevated ledge with just the two of you, surrounded by the sounds of the bush.

If your idea of a romantic getaway in Zimbabwe is getting off-grid and back to basics, there’s plenty of that in Zimbabwe. Hire a 4x4 and head off for the remoter corners of the country such as Gonarezhou National Park, where you’ll feel like you have the wilderness all to yourself, or book one of the exclusive campsites on the banks of the Zambezi River in Mana Pools National Park to experience a pocket of this untamed wilderness all on your own.
