Honeymoons are often the perfect safari and beach combination. We would be thrilled to become involved in this special trip. Please involve us as soon as you can to ensure availability.
You are after something special because this will be one of the most memorable holidays you’ll ever have. That doesn’t mean to say it has to be the most luxurious or the most remote or even the most romantic, but something that reflects you as a couple and therefore completely tailor-made.
If you already have an idea of which country you’d like to visit or would like to see the differences between them, see our country honeymoon links: Tanzania Honeymoon

As honeymooners you can relish in some of the most romantic escapes on the planet. Ever considered ballooning over the Serengeti, watching Africa play out below you on the far reaching plains? Fly camping in the bush – just you with your camp team in the middle of nowhere? Floating down the river on a boat safari, stopping to have a breakfast en route? Or a sundowner in the middle of the Masai Mara with a tree for shade? Staying in the most luxurious tent you can imagine, with a plunge pool on your terrace, from where your safari begins – binoculars not even necessary? How about tracking gorillas in Rwanda? End this with a boutique beach lodge for some relaxation or high spec hotel & spa for top end escapism, perhaps will a little dolphin safari to boot.

Like any of our holidays, we’ll take a brief from you and start from there. You may prefer this to be a surprise for your future spouse or you might both like complete involvement. We find our honeymooners are usually after a mix of relaxation, adventure and escapism.
We normally recommend starting with a safari to totally immerse you into the real Africa, and then follow this with some beachlife, but let us know your thoughts and we’ll try and find the best options for you.
