Honeymoon Safari

Take your honeymoon to the next level with an unforgettable African Safari

If you and your partner want to create lifelong memories of your honeymoon, an African safari is the way to go. Featuring vast savannas, otherworldly landscapes, abundant starry nights unpolluted by city lights, breathtaking sunsets, and a wealth of African animals (including the "Big 5"), among other things. It's not just about seeing animals on an African honeymoon safari; there's also the opportunity to stay in plush lodges in breathtaking settings. That's as romantic as it gets!

Don't buy it yet? Let's check out the many reasons why a safari in Africa would be perfect for a newlywed couple on their honeymoon.

Isn't it Romantic to Go on a Honeymoon to Africa?

A Safari Honeymoon is perfect for couples who wish to spend quality time together in nature without having to contend with the distractions of other tourists or the urban noise and stench.

On game drives, you might see the Big 5—an African lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, and rhinoceros—and other spectacular forms of wildlife in their natural habitat. There is a huge variety of birds that you may see. Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature just outside your door as you unwind in the evenings at one of the lodges. Gaze at the endless starry sky that stretches as far as the eye can perceive. Here are a few reasons why you might want to consider a honeymoon safari in Africa:

  • Cape Town is a popular tourist destination because it offers a wide range of activities in a compact area. For example, in Cape Town alone, you can go to the beach, hike a spectacular mountain like Table Mountain, see a penguin colony, discover a historical landmark like Robben Island, and go on an African safari.
  • Safari game drives exploring Africa's unique flora and fauna are available at your pick of several different game reserves.
  • Try some of the best African dishes and wines at some of the best restaurants in the world.
  • Not only do you get to spend an incredible amount of time in the woods, but you also get to do so in the lap of luxury thanks to the lodges. With lodges that are cozier and more furnished than most people's homes, and with luxurious rooms that offer unrivaled vistas of the forest.
  • Enjoy a unique perspective on your honeymoon safari by taking to the skies in a hot air balloon to take in the breathtaking scenery and capture the golden light of beautiful sunrises. There is nothing more special than this.
  • In addition to hot air ballooning, a safari honeymoon can also include a picturesque trip in a bush plane over the beautiful landscapes below.

Where Should We Go on Honeymoon for the Best Possible Safari in Africa?

Arranging an African honeymoon may be difficult, and after all of the effort you put into organizing the perfect wedding, the last thing you want is to deal with more details and logistics. You may rest assured that your trip will go off without a hitch thanks to our skilled travel planners. And because we want your honeymoon Safari to be perfect, we've put up a list of must-see locations.

Safari Honeymoon in Southern Africa

The variety of experiences available in South Africa makes it an ideal destination for a honeymoon safari. It's a vacation spot loaded with interesting sights, fascinating history, interesting animals, tasty food, and prestigious wines. It is also known for its beautiful white sand beaches that are bathed by both the warm Indian and the frigid Atlantic Oceans. The safaris in this nation are perfect for a memorable honeymoon.

Take pleasure in a honeymoon package that combines visits to two of South Africa's most popular tourist spots—the Cape Winelands, where you may sample some of the world's finest wines, and the Kruger National Park. The National Park is one of Africa's largest and most densely populated animal sanctuaries, making for a fantastic safari adventure. 

Sabi Sand Game Reserve, the most prestigious reserve, is another option, boasting a diverse wildlife population, opulent lodges, and breathtaking game drives. The breathtaking sights you'll be treated to will leave an indelible mark on your mind for years to come, all thanks to the effort put into protecting a wide variety of ecosystems in a responsible manner.

Visit the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve on your honeymoon trip. Madikwe, which literally means "Africa in its glory," provides visitors with an opportunity to witness Africa at its most magnificent. The reserve is a great place to go game viewing because of the variety of plants and animals found there. A total of 66 animal species, including the "Big Five," as well as over 300 bird species call this place home. This reserve is perfect for a romantic honeymoon safari due to its opulent wilderness camps, lodges and delicious cuisine.

Chobe and Moremi National Park in Botswana, Etosha National Park in Namibia, Hwange National Park and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, and many other places make Southern Africa a must-see travel destination.

Romantic Safari Vacation in Eastern Africa

You won't want to leave Kenya after an unforgettable safari honeymoon in the country's iconic Maasai Mara. The Maasai Mara is a protected savannah area teeming with exotic and fascinating species including giraffes, zebras, cheetahs, and the Big Five. Over 1.5 million wildebeest, 250,000 zebra, and smaller herds of Gazelles and Elands make the journey from Maasai Mara to the Serengeti and back every year as part of the Great Migration. Relax in opulent lodges while being awestruck by the majestic scenery, which includes the snow-capped summits of Mount Kenya. The Maasai are the indigenous people who live in this national reserve, so you're guaranteed to see them during your travels. For sustenance, these tribal people herd outstanding Maasai cattle; the men of the tribe, known as the Moran and distinguished by their distinctive red clothing, serve as warriors.

The Maasai Mara isn't the only area in Kenya worth seeing; the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is on the same border and is just as impressive. As one of the world's oldest and most scientifically significant ecosystems, it offers visitors a look into the distant past thanks to its fauna and plants and weather patterns that have changed very little over the course of a million years. Over 2 million ungulates, 4,000 lions, 1,000 leopards, 550 cheetahs, 500 bird species, and more await you on its vast plains. You will view the big wildebeest migration from a hot air balloon, stay in exquisite lodges complete with rose petal baths and couple's greetings, and dine alone beneath a starry velvet sky. The Serengeti is the epitome of romanticism, making it the ideal location for a honeymoon safari.

Located southeast of the Serengeti, in the Ngorongoro Conservation area, a UNESCO World Heritage Sight, lies the Ngorongoro Crater, a massive volcanic crater that is a must-see for any visitor.

When should I go on a honeymoon safari in Africa?

From January to December, Africa's many entrances stay unlocked, proving that the continent's many diverse areas provide attractions and adventures in any season.

You may see the Great Migration of wildebeest in the Maasai Mara and Serengeti National Parks between July and October. Alternatively, the best time to go on a safari in Southern Africa is between May and October, when the foliage is low and you have a better chance of seeing the animals. During this period, you can see a high concentration of wildlife in a small area since animals are drawn to water sources.

Our vacation specialists are available year-round to advise you on seasonal travel options. Enabling you to have an unforgettable honeymoon safari trip in Africa.

What does a typical day on an African Honeymoon Safari look like?

A typical safari day begins with an early wake-up call, usually in the form of wild sounds piped into your resort. Breakfast and coffee will be served before you set out on an unforgettable game drive at sunrise. You will be driven through pristine places and see incredible African wildlife as if the animals were rousing themselves to put on a show for you.

You will return to your lodge or camp for a delicious lunch following your drive, and the rest of the day is yours to do as you like. Some options include swimming, a massage, a nature walk, and a plunge in the pool. Take advantage of the golden hour as the sun sets across the savannah on an evening wildlife drive. Bringing with it the African animals of the night that you missed during the day.

There will be a delicious meal waiting for you when you get back, along with some cool drinks and a view of the beautiful stars.

How Much Does an African Safari Cost for a Honeymoon?

Prices for honeymoons in Africa can vary widely, from $450.00 to $3,000.00 per couple. Many things must be taken into account. Consider factors like the destination, the lodging, the time of year, the activities you plan to partake in, and so on.
