The world is your oyster! After the incredible highs and stresses of wedding planning, you deserve a bit of pampering, or will it be a world class beach to relax on? Maybe you are the adventurous type and want to experience a big 5 African Safari with some adrenaline and luxury thrown in. Africa has it all in spades!

From Robinson Crusoe-esque islands in the Indian Ocean to some of the world’s best restaurants in the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town, the possibilities truly are endless! Sip a cold Tusker beer under Mount Kilimanjaro whilst watching elephant herds quench their own thirst; taste a multitude of wine varietals in the Winelands of the western Cape – Pinots and penguin viewing, Shiraz and sharks, Merlots on top of the mountain or a cool crisp Chenin blanc the Cape point. We firmly believe if you are doing a honeymoon trip straight after your wedding you will need a slow, restful start and so we often recommend a very well appointed safari lodge with spas, excellent accessible game viewing and amazing food and drinks. 

There are so many lodges that meet that profile throughout the continent – favorites of ours include Singita Ebony, Jao Camp, Abu Camp, Faru Faru, Mwiba Lodge, Chem Chem, Lamai Serengeti, Jack’s Camp, Mombo Camp, and Mara Plains Camp.

With the right flight logistics you could be sipping a mojito on the beach within walking distance to Freddie Mercury’s house in Zanzibar, or catching a sunset Dhow cruise off of the coast of Mozambique, finding deserted beaches … Think the exotic islands of Zanzibar and Seychelles or the Bazaruto Archipelago.

How about throwing in some adventure? Walk with Samburu tribesman and their camel train through the African savannah, ending up with a starlit dinner al fresco with wholesome food and fine wines.

Take a helicopter ride through forested mountains and deserts, landing for an impromptu breakfast with miles and miles of unspoiled Africa as your view.

Don’t lose your spouse as your bungee jump from one of the world’s highest waterfalls and celebrate with a sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi!
