Our Luxury Safari Honeymoon Itineraries and Accommodations

Safari honeymoons are catching the eye of adventurous couples who want more from their honeymoon than just lounging at a beach resort (although we love a safari beach honeymoon). They're all about mixing excitement, love and the stunning beauty of nature.

At the heart of a safari honeymoon is getting up close with animals in their natural habitat. Imagine seeing the Big Five on game drives or spotting unique big cats like snow leopards in India. With luxurious safari accommodation options, you can wake up each morning to the sights and sounds of the wilderness in all its majesty, making your honeymoon even more thrilling and unforgettable.

Unique Safari Honeymoon Destinations

When it comes to picking a one-of-a-kind place for a safari honeymoon, some spots really shine. The Maasai Mara in Kenya is one of those places, famous for its wide-open spaces and lots of animals. It gives you an up-close look at nature with activities like driving around to see wildlife, flying in hot air balloons, and staying in fancy places with unique amenities such as in-room spa treatments and sundowners around sunken fire pits.

For folks wanting something different from Africa's usual spots, South Africa has loads to offer. You can go on safaris that are unlike any other from the well-known Kruger National Park to the exclusive game reserves like Sabi Sands. These places give you plenty of chances to spot the Big Five and soak up the African wilderness' beauty.

However, there are a few extra special safari honeymoon destinations that promise unforgettable moments.

Enhancing Your Honeymoon: Activities Beyond the Safari

Going on a safari might be the main event of your honeymoon, but there's so much more you can do to make it even better.

Think about floating across the sky in a hot air balloon as the sun comes up, giving you a bird's eye view of Africa's vast lands. Or imagine having dinner with your loved one under the night sky filled with stars, all while listening to nature’s own soundtrack. With local communities around, you have the chance to dive into their culture and learn how they live day-to-day.

You can also add a beach stay to your safari honeymoon for a luscious blend of adventure and tranquillity. Spend the first few days of your honeymoon acclimating to the new time zone whilst lounging on palm-fringed beaches, or take time to reminisce on your recent adventures with a few beach days at the end to really pull the whole honeymoon together.
