With Valentine’s day looming, where to propose might be an important consideration. There is no doubt being in Africa not only invigorates the senses but it also gives the heart strings a good pull. If you are looking to propose, or feel you might be vulnerable, there are plenty of magical spots ideal for a bended knee. Some of our favourites include:
Ngorongoro Crater: standing on the edge of this vast volcanic caldera can blow your mind. The views 600m down and 20km across are simply awesome. The scenery is spectacularly beautiful with lush green vegetation dropping down to the plains housing large quantity of game. Ask your guide to prepare you a romantic picnic breakfast or lunch and this could be your moment.
Trips including the Ngorongoro Crater as part of your itinerary tend to be Tanzanian Northern Parks safaris which can include Tarangire, Lake Manyara and the Serengeti as well as a hop over to Zanzibar for some beach relaxation.
Mnemba Island: snorkelling in the bright turquoise waters above the reef off Mnemba Island really is quite spectacular. The vast array of fish and sea life and the colours they bring really is eye candy itself. Charter yourself a dhow with all the necessaries on board and you may not be able to help yourself.
Trips including Mnemba Island as part of your itinerary are holidays in Zanzibar. There is a vast choice of large resort styles through to our more favourite boutique style hotels for some barefoot luxury right on the beach.
