Because Tommy and I had somewhat of a lame honeymoon experience, we constantly scheme about "the honeymoon of our dreams." Usually this fantasy involves beaches....and lots of them. But after reading this, I'm pretty convinced that an African safari is the raddest honeymoon idea ever. What do you think?
Luxury Safari Honeymoons in Africa
Africa. One of the best places in the world to honeymoon. Most couples want activity and beach on their luxury honeymoon in Africa; Africa delivers these options in spades. A safari is a real adventure, especially for first timers – the magic of seeing animals in the wild a real adrenalin rush and something you’ll never forget. Want more? There are plenty of options nowadays to try a walking safari, horse safari, a mountain biking safari or perhaps glide over the African plains from the romantic heights of a hot air balloon. And you’ll definitely be wanting some R&R on the beach. The main difficulty is choosing where to go: there are so many great options to choose from Mozambique’s crystal clear waters to Zanzibar’s dazzling white sands.
Here are some of our favorite safari and beach honeymoon ideas:
