Safari & Beach - The Perfect Honeymoon

Let the journey begin

A safari beach honeymoon is the perfect way to start your journey together. You get the thrill of doing something exciting and different, whilst also finding the time to relax and unwind post wedding.

Where?

Kenya, Tanzania & Botswana/Mozambique are the main contenders.

When to book?

Earlier the better. Some camps book up over a year in advance. Like Giraffe Manor for example.

How much?

Our honeymoon safaris start from £4,500 per person. Rates are generally fully inclusive.

Booking a honeymoon can be quite daunting. For many, it's the first time you really splash out on a holiday, often one with one person trying to surprise the other. We know what it's like and we're here to help.

From wonderful savannah to white sand beaches, a safari beach honeymoon combines excitement, adventure and relaxation; it really doesn't get better.

Our favourite destinations for a luxury safari and beach honeymoon are Tanzania or Kenya.  Safaris in Tanzania tend to be in the northern parks, including Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater or the Selous Game Reserve in the south.  For beach time we recommend the short hop over to Zanzibar where there are some stunning boutique hotels right on the beach and beautiful white sandy beaches they are.  Kenya is famed for the Masai Mara which links very well with the Kenya coastline as well as Zanzibar.  For a more exclusive safari, Botswana is hard to beat on the luxury stakes, particularly the Okavango Delta, with stunning camps not compromising on modern day luxuries.

As honeymooners, you can relish in some of the most romantic escapes on the planet. Ever considered ballooning over the Serengeti whilst on your safari and beach honeymoon adventure, or watching Africa play out below you on the far-reaching plains? Fly camping in the bush – just you with your camp team in the middle of nowhere? Floating down the river on a boat safari, stopping to have a breakfast en route? Or a sundowner in the middle of the Masai Mara with a tree for shade?

Top Tip

Book in advance. Honestly, a year in advance is recommended. Once you like an itinerary and have your mind committed to it, to see it become unavailable is gut wrenching. Avoid this by booking ahead.

The Cost

Safari's are a bit like weddings, they often cost more than you first thought. It's a cost you want to keep down... and our goal is keep it at Honeymoon level. You can go cheaper (and cut corners) but magic could be lost. Safari Beach Honeymoon's start from £5,000 per head - find out about the costs more here.

What are you after?

This is hard to know at first, so we have put a list of questions to help you start thinking.

  • Do you like the idea of tented camp or permanent lodge?
  • Are one (or both) of you less confident about being on safari? Knowing this will help our thinking.
  • Are you after something extra adventurous like a walking safari or fly camping?
  • Is being connected to wi-fi important? Could be for work or keeping in touch with family & friends.
  • Are you after the best on offer or something within a budget?
  • Is seeing wildlife most important?
