Getting married means setting off a wonderful and thrilling journey into the unknown, and looking forward to incredible shared experiences and moments of beauty and excitement you’ll cherish forever. As it happens, this is also a great description of a luxury safari, and helps explain why African safaris make idyllic honeymoons.
Why is Africa an ideal honeymoon destination?
Modern weddings can be stressful, between seating plans and over-long speeches. There’s no finer way to get away from it all than on an African-safari honeymoon. Stop worrying about Wi-Fi and focus on wifey; forget the wedding list and simply be present with each other.
Once you disconnect you’ll reconnect, enjoying time in each other’s company and planning your future while indulging in luxurious lodges and soaking up nature. Guides and lodge managers are all closet romantics, and will go the extra mile for a matrimonial smile.
What do safari lodges do to spoil honeymooners?
It’s your honeymoon, and you can make it as private or sociable as you like. If you’re feeling like the life and soul, you can mingle even though you’re no longer single. Equally, if you have eyes only for your soulmate, private vehicle and in-room dining options let you enjoy intimate moments.
From romantic turndowns involving rose petals to bubble baths with bubbly or surprise alfresco picnics for two, safari lodges delight in creating magical memories for honeymooners.
What about a safari-and-beach honeymoon?
A safari-and-beach honeymoon is idyllic, as are general safari and beach holidays. Adding some seaside to your safari lets you introduce elements of pure relaxation as you wave goodbye to any post-wedding blues (and hello to azure, turquoise and aquamarine). You can even skip the early morning game drives entirely, and spend your whole honeymoon on a tropical island if you say ‘I do’ to an African beach holiday.
