More and more newlyweds are heading to Africa every year with many combining an adventurous safari experience with an exclusive Indian Ocean beach retreat.  Suggestions include:

  • Ras Kutani, Tanzania. This secluded beach getaway is the perfect relaxing honeymoon retreat.  Made up of nine spacious cottages and four Upepo suites, this charming lodge offers great food, stunning views and massive beds – all within walking distance to a gorgeous beach.  Why not combine a trip to Ras Kutani with a safari adventure in either the Selous Game Reserve or Ruaha National Park?
  • Mnemba Island Lodge, Zanzibar Islands. A favourite getaway of Bill Gates, this private island retreat is definitely situated in one of the most romantic settings in the world.  Offering gorgeous barefoot luxury, newlyweds can stroll along the vast beach or even go on a romantic traditional dhow ride on the lookout for the colourful marine life, including barracudas and even dolphins.
  • Jao Camp, Botswana. Newlyweds looking for an African safari should head to Botswana for some of the greatest safari experiences.  Jao Camp is one of the most famous camps in Africa.  Located on a remote island, it’s built up in the trees offering complete privacy for newlyweds and is the perfect place to spot a pride of lions, elephants, buffalos, hippos or even crocodiles.
  • Naibor, Kenya. For the ultimate Kenya honeymoon, a visit to the stunning Masai Mara is a must.  Naibor is a charming tented camp and a great base for safari lovers.  Situated in one of the best locations in the Mara,  guests can watch the great Serengeti migration of wildebeests.  Nestled in the Riverine forest on the banks of the Talek River, honeymooners can share the best African bush experiences together surrounded by spectacular scenery and diverse wildlife.
