What to Know Before Planning a Safari Honeymoon

An African wedding is by nature, a wild. Tourists can be up close and close to lions, elephants and other animals during game drives or walking safaris. Couples who are newlyweds can go to traditional communities such as Maasai as well as Batwa to observe how they live. They can also visit cities such as Nairobi or Cape Town. Do you want to boost the thrill factor? Consider a hot air balloon ride across the Serengeti or leap over Victoria Falls bridge. Victoria Falls bridge.

However, that doesn’t mean that romance must go unnoticed. In some camps, newlyweds are able to enjoy couples massages as well as romantic outdoor baths and candlelit bush dinners in private settings. When they return in the evening, they could enjoy a special turn-down service, which includes chocolates and champagne before snuggling to sleep under a warm duvet in their tent under the stars-lit African nights, listening to the roars of lions and hyenas. When the sun rises, birds’ calls signal the start of a new day.

If relaxation and rest (and romantic love) on the sand sounds appealing There’s many “bush as well as beach” places to stay after a safari with everything from local beach resorts to luxury resorts such as The Four Seasons. Locations like Zanzibar as well as the Seychelles and Mozambique have beautiful white-sand beaches with warm, turquoise waters and a variety of activities, from relaxing by the pool and swimming with the ocean, to swimming, snorkeling and fishing.

If you want to ensure that honeymoon safaris is exactly what you want Keep these suggestions in your mind.

Location and the location

East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, and Uganda) is the best place for experiencing huge herds of wildlife and trekking with gorillas, chimpanzees, as well as other primates; observing the traditional ways of life; and relaxing on beautiful beaches. Southern Africa (South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Malawi, and Mozambique) is best for: up-close-and-personal wildlife experiences; private reserves; and non-safari activities like golf, wine tasting, and luxury train trips.

Make a strategic plan for the Time of the Year

The most ideal time to view wildlife in many safari parks is during the winter time (June to October) The weather generally cooler, sunnier and dry. If you live in East Africa, the months between December and March could also be great for viewing plenty of wildlife. November and April are the more rainy months (consider not visiting them unless lower costs and less crowds are your top priorities). In the southern part of Africa the period from November to May is regarded as the “green” (or shoulder) season, which is characterized by more precipitation and warmer temperatures. The only exception is Cape Town, which has pleasant temperatures (and is a very popular tourist destination) from December until March.

Pace Yourself

A lot of honeymooners believe that they’ll visit Africa for a single trip and would like to “see everything” over the course of a two-week vacation. the reality is that for many, this first trip to Africa is only a catalyst for future trips. We recommend choosing only a couple of areas or countries and travelling in a more leisurely manner to ensure that all experiences are enjoyed and not feel pressured. The continent is massive and travel between places can be lengthy and exhausting.

the right Camp is Everything

It doesn’t matter if you want five-star luxury or an unpretentious adventure camping trip, Africa offers a variety of hotels, tented camp and lodges that are ideal for couples on their honeymoon. Imagine staying in Elewana’s star beds with a treehouse platform, where four-poster beds are set under the open skies or beneath thatched cover. If you’re looking to see the majestic Victoria Falls, newlyweds can stay at the Victoria Falls River Lodge’s Island Treehouse Suites, located on an island that is private with swimming pools on the deck, and hippos that are located below. Aqua lovers can enjoy the night at The Manta Resort’s swimming pool situated close to Pemba Island, Tanzania. The options go on and on.

For instance you could go to Kenya you can participate in the traditional Maasai wedding ceremony that is characterized by a warrior who escorts (spears in hands) and the presence of a chief or elder who will officiate the ceremony, and a traditional roasting celebration.
