In the growing world of adventure honeymoons, one stand-out destination is Africa. Couples can even plan destination weddings on this fascinating and mysterious continent, while others may choose to marry at home, then go on safari.
If “tracking” wild game is not your style, but you're intrigued by the beauty and adventure offered by an African honeymoon, you might consider a visit to awe-inspiring Victoria Falls in Southern Africa. There's a particularly wonderful hotel on the lush banks of the nearby Zambezi River.
Further into the wilds of Botswana there's an elegant lodge, complete with private gardens. You can take guided drives into areas that are home to large concentrations of elephants, along with lions, hippos and other magnificent creatures.
If you'd like to rough it a bit more, you can stay in a Kalahari tent, ride bikes and take game walks with Bushman trackers.
If honeymooning in a restored sultan's palace holds some romantic appeal, you can arrange a stay in the grand hotel in Stonetown, Zanzibar, then travel to the coral reefs and fine beaches in Nungwi. The game reserves in Kenya are astounding, and are home to giraffe and zebra, along with many other species.
It's easy enough to plan an exciting journey blending posh accommodations with wild excursions. Or you can really get to know Africa's amazing landscape and diverse cultures by planning a more modest excursion. There are beaches, museums, fabulous food and local markets to explore. As ever, just ask your romantic travel expert about great deals and adventurous honeymoon packages.
