Surrounded by nothing but nature and vast landscapes. No mass-tourism, no crowds, just you and the wild.
This is Africa!
Experts predict that in a post-pandemic world, travellers will be more conscientious when it comes to where and how they travel, opting for ‘slow travel’ in more isolated destinations, avoiding the overcrowded tourist destinations of the past.
I think it’s safe to say that we have all been more than a little disheartened at travel plans coming to a screeching halt as the world entered a long period of lockdown, perhaps none more so, than those of you who had to postpone wedding or honeymoon plans. But with news of the vaccination roll out you can finally start to dream of making these long-awaited plans a reality.
While Australia’s borders remain closed for now, the reopening is almost in our sights, making now the perfect time to start to plan your dream honeymoon.
Here are 5 reasons why Africa is the perfect choice to make memories to last a lifetime once it is safe to travel again.
Whether you prefer vintage Africa or sleek modern feels, almost all of the lodges offer large freestanding suites with massive king-size beds, lounge areas, a large private deck with a private plunge pool, outdoor showers, and a luxurious indoor bathroom. While the crème de la crème properties do come with hefty price tags, there are plenty of stunning options that are affordable! Find it all on a safari in Africa.
After the large expense of a wedding, an all-inclusive honeymoon in Africa is appealing to couples so they can forget money and just enjoy themselves. Most upmarket safari camps include all meals, beverages (including beer, wine and spirits), and a selection of safari activities, which can include game drives, bush walks, boating safaris, canoeing and fishing.
Special Romantic Touches:
The very essence of safari is romantic, with the exotic wildlife, pristine wilderness and starry night skies, and so most safari properties have been designed to maximise romance. Lodges delight in providing extra special touches such as private bush dinners by candlelight, couple’s spa treatments, and turn down services where you might return to your room to find a rose petal bath, candles and champagne. This is pampering at its finest!
Leaving technology and distractions behind, couples have the chance to connect as they share incredible animal sightings, uninterrupted landscapes, and breathtaking African sunsets. And the perfect ending to a perfect day? Drinks around the campfire as you share stories with your guide and fellow guests, followed by a world-class dinner enjoyed under the vast African night sky.
After an adventurous safari, there’s a number of incredibly stunning African beaches that we can recommend where you can unwind, soak up the sun and relax as newlyweds!
