There's no better way to relax and celebrate your lives together, than on a romantic honeymoon in Africa.
The early explorers fell in love with quiet, intimate nights under canvas, sitting around the fire with the energy of optimism and opportunity that filled the air. It is the same romance and freedom that bought the European settlers to Africa years later and it's the incredible feeling of being alive that makes people return for romantic holidays.
Africa is the only real authentic honeymoon destination that offers you endless options, from romantic boutique camps and lodges in the heart of the Serengeti or the Okavango Delta, to nights under stars on privately owned wildlife concessions. There are beaches and tropical islands, hot air balloon rides over the savannah plains and an energy and love that can only be found in Africa.
Honeymoons are highly personal and specialised and they require a lot of attention. It's important to find the perfect itinerary and accommodations to make it as special as it should be.
