4 Best Honeymoon Destinations in Africa

Tanzania

Honey, are you warm enough?

Tanzania is an acclaimed honeymoon destination. Picturesque beaches, cruising services, private lodges on secluded islands ensure an exotic intimate holiday. Zanzibar is the most beautiful and the favourite choice for honeymooners. The Mnemba Island Lodge is considered to be one of the most romantic beach destinations in the Africa. The private island is anybody’s heaven—clear waters, world-class snorkelling, a paramount tiny forest, surprisingly natural-looking lodges made of canvas and grass.
There’s Mt. Kilimanjaro for the more adventurous couples who fancy a trek to one of the most accessible high summits of the world. The trek begins through lush tropical greens and ends with wintry snow. Another popular attraction is, of course, the Serengeti National Park.

Kenya

Will you marry me?

The name Kenya might conjure up images of a poor Africa nation with political turbulence, but truth is that the country is blessed with stunning natural beauty. Secluded islands, rich wildlife, lush greenery is what makes it an ideal honeymoon destination. Its well-developed tourism offers plush villas, camps, and sari lodges situated off the coast and islands, air balloon trips, tours to tribal areas, and much more.
Not for nothing did Prince William propose to Kate here. Apparently, he kept the ring in his bag as they backpacked through the country, and waited for the right spot to propose.

South Africa

Royal honeymoon

This is a given in the list of honeymoon destinations. The windy Cape Town with its clifftop spots and breezy ocean views is the perfect setting for a romantic evening. Or enjoy a luxurious stay in one of the many villas of Garden Route (also known as South Africa’s Eden) overlooking its scenic coastline. For those looking for a more cosmopolitan experience, Johannesburg is the place to go. The ‘City of Gold’ is a thriving city of S.A. pulsating with a night life, shopping and entertainment options. For a literally wild experience, head to the rugged Wild Coast, which is beauty in its most natural form a la its cliffs, beaches and unhindered hills. There are plenty of low cost direct flights to South Africa so it’s an easy place to get to.

Botswana

Lookie, sir, not at madam, at the giraffe!

A perfect romantic escape from the world, Botswana offers spectacular safaris, game-viewing, breathtaking sunsets, open isolated landscapes. It has rightly been called Africa’s best-kept secret. Visit the Tswapong Hills for an adventure with wilderness. Stay in secluded safari lodges amidst rich flora and wildlife. View wildlife sailing in a boat on the Okavango River.
