Why not consider safari for your honeymoon?

If you are planning your wedding, you know you have millions of decision to make and one of them – last but not least – is choosing your honeymoon destination. Everyone will have an opinion about it whether on the destination, length of trip or even type of accommodation!

From the classic Maldives escape to the crazy adventure of backpacking South East Asia the options are endless. And one of these options is not often on the top of the list but after all, it’s going to be a unique trip in your life so why not consider safari for your honeymoon?

When going on a honeymoon you are probably looking for privacy and serenity. Well we know no better place than the bush to find it! A safari is a great option for your honeymoon as it offers retreat, remoteness and calm, just what you’ll need after a wedding. It will just be the two of you, in the bush, especially if you pick a less known destination such as Zambia – far from the beaten path – choosing to join every game drive or just picking the evening one to enjoy a long morning in your room! You’ll have the afternoon to enjoy the pool, nap in a hammock or wander in the camp to spot an elephant.

While on a safari everybody finds what they are looking for: adventure packed holiday with walking safari, canoe trip, boat safari and game drive or slow holiday with long sundowner, pool time and candlelit dinner! Of course, you can have the best of both worlds and start with an early safari before ending the day with a sundowner in the bush and a candlelit dinner overlooking the floodplain.

Going on safari is a sure way of getting lost in the African beauty and benefiting from an amazing level of service. The lodge will always do their best to make you feel special and if they know you’re on your honeymoon they’ll add some surprises to celebrate this very special occasion!

Safari might be the dream option as it’s a once in a lifetime trip, one of those you’ll never forget. It will offer you picturesque and extraordinary landscapes very few people get to experience. And you will share these moments with your new partner. The magic of watching a leopard in the wild for the first time is indescribable.
