Whether you’re honeymooning or escaping the daily humdrum of life to nurture your romantic relationship, there are skies full of magic and plenty to delight in Africa. Couples on the hunt for romance require itineraries that are filled with starry-eyed moments: private, relaxing, perfectly organised and with a touch of adventure.

It all adds up to the perfect recipe for romance, so here is our short list of the top places to inspire love in Africa.

Tanzania and Zanzibar

A romantic Tanzania and Zanzibar Honeymoon perfectly balances an African Safari Adventure with a barefoot luxury island experience. Tanzania’s most prolific wildlife destinations including Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and the iconic Serengeti National Park – home to the annual Wildebeest Migration, are yours to choose from.

Your safari time is made up of daily game drives, walking safaris, hot air balloon safaris and Maasai cultural experiences, to romantic candle-lit dinners under the stars, couple massages and outdoor baths overlooking the African plains.

Your exciting safari experience is followed by a barefoot luxury experience on the Spice Island of Zanzibar where you will your days indulging in island living. Or head out to the idyllic Island getaway of Mnemba.

Kenya Safari and Coast

Honeymooners will get wrapped up in the romance of this land which inspired Karen Blixen’s famous book and the film ‘Out of Africa’ about her love affair with Africa. Whether you are exploring endless savannahs teeming with wildlife on safari, on foot, on horseback or even by camel; on interacting with the famous Masaai or Samburu people, marvelling at a magnificent sunset, soaring above the earth in a balloon safari or lounging on a pristine beach, Kenya is made for romance.

Combining the Masai Mara with Kenya’s tropical coast is a perfect blend of safari and beach, delivering unique adventure and laid-back relaxation. If you can tear yourself away from your sun lounger by the pool, why not learn to kite-surf; get your PADI scuba diving certificate and take a sunset dhow cruise.

South Africa and Mozambique

The quintessential honeymoon experience… city, safari and surf! Uncover the magic of the Mother City of Cape Town on foot, kayaking with the penguins, hiking Table Mountain, sip on award-winning wines in the most stunning scenery and dine at some of the best restaurants in the world!

Then track the Big Five in the world-renowned Sabi Sands Game Reserve, a place of extraordinary adventure, and breath-taking thrills around every bend.

Following your days of safari drives, walks, a sleepout and other thrilling in the bush moments, pamper yourself with some rest and relaxation in the tropical climate and sunshine Mozambique. Explore the warm waters and marvel at the marine life of the island’s coral reefs on scuba diving expeditions, enjoy the thrill of deep-sea fishing or simply explore the magical setting and soaring dunes of Benguerra or Bazaruto Island.

If ever there is a landscape that spells out romance, it is Namibia. In this vast country you can experience the privacy honeymooners crave in remote areas where you are the only people around for miles.

You can relax in unique, intimate lodges with rooms on the edge of sand dunes, and waterholes or built into the branches of trees. Watching the sunset together over the desert from your private deck or sipping early morning coffee in bed while zebras have a morning drink a few meters away from you, or adopting a Fairy Circle… these are the kind of moments that you can expect from Namibia.

Whether you choose to explore Sossusvlei, Etosha, Damaraland or the Skeleton Coast, special moments such as private dinners under the stars, flights over the Skeleton Coast, adventures in Swakopmund, meeting local peoples, learning about desert adapted wildlife, star gazing and more await.

Botswana & Zambia

Imagine sleeping out under a star-lit southern hemisphere sky. Or silently gliding on a dug-out canoe through the lily-studded waters of the Okavango Delta, watching elephants come to drink at the water’s edge.

Perhaps you’d like to enjoy a candlelit dinner on a private jetty on the Zambezi river? Then these two destinations are for you! Start your safari in the Okavango Delta where you’ll explore the waterways by mokoro canoes, search for the Big Five by land and walking safaris, take a helicopter flight for the most incredible views of this marvel of mother nature, and perhaps you’d like to meet local Bushmen or even frolic with some meerkats? For an incredible finale, we suggest you cross the border into Zambia to view the thundering Victoria Falls, staying on your own private island on the Zambezi River. Canoeing to a remote island for breakfast, swimming on the edge of the Falls in the Devil’s Pool, tracking rhino by foot, flying over the Smoke That Thunders and many more adventures await.
