Honeymoon Locations in Africa
Honeymoons are not your typical holiday. They are the trip of a lifetime that are supposed to be full of beautiful destinations, adventure and romance. Below we explore some of the best honeymoon destinations in Africa.
Volcanoes National Park – Rwanda
Although gorilla trekking might be seen as a very adventurous activity for a safari, Rwanda is the destination for true luxury and romantic experience to accompany this awe-inspiring activity. Singita’s Kwitonda Lodge offers the most luxurious option and here you can expect the highest quality service and hospitality as well as every amenity one could ask for.
Gorilla trekking is something never to be forgotten – and is exceptionally hard to fully describe but sharing it with your new partner makes it even more special. Rwanda is also a great place for a quick three day trip including a gorilla trek, so it is the perfect place to start an itinerary before heading to Tanzania for a safari and Zanzibar for some rest and relaxation on the beach.
Cape Town – South Africa
Africa’s most beautiful city without a shadow of a doubt. With beautiful scenic views as well as a plethora of bars, restaurants and exceptional hotels, heading here after a safari in any of Southern Africa’s countries is a must.
From the edgy Silo Hotel to the lavish La Residence in the surrounding Winelands, Cape Town can offer something special for any type of honeymoon. Whether you want to explore the Natural beauty of Cape Point, get the adrenaline pumping with a sky dive next to Table Mountain or relax in a beach bar overlooking the beautiful harbours, Cape Town can offer it all.
Victoria Falls – Zimbabwe | Zambia
Just like Cape Town, Victoria Falls can be easily added onto almost any Southern Africa safari. Situated on the boarders of Zambia and Zimbabwe, the flight logistics are easy all-over Southern Africa and again, this is a must visit place for a honeymoon.
The world’s largest waterfall is a spectacular sight and the variety of activities will allow you to have a very memorable experience. Thrill seekers can microlight over the Falls or brave Devil’s Pool whilst those wishing for a more romantic setting can enjoy a sunset cruise along the Zambezi. For beautiful accommodation options the Royal Livingstone or Tongabezi are perfect for honeymoons.
Okavango Delta – Botswana
For those wishing to go all-out with their honeymoon on safari and experience arguably the world’s greatest safari destination then the Okavango Delta is the place to go.
From ultra-luxurious lodges like Mombo and Jao to incredible game viewing by mokoro, vehicle or on foot you cannot go wrong with a honeymoon here. Knowing what to expect in each season and in which part of the Delta is key to a brilliant Delta safari.
