Experience Africa In Luxury

Luxury is the key ingredient when planning a honeymoon. Getting married is a big deal & celebrating such a special occasion should be done in style. Beautiful views, exclusivity, private plunge pools & outdoor showers are perhaps some of the things that made their way onto your Honeymoon List – & rightly so – but there are also other things to consider when choosing the ultimate honeymoon destination. See, luxury is not just about ‘things,’ it is also about experiences. Sometimes luxury can be seen in exclusive private villas & other times it is found in beautiful, tented camps. But more importantly – luxury can also be enjoyed on a scenic hot air balloon flight, during a relaxing couples’ massage or by spending the night in a remote treehouse under a canopy of stars!

Sleep in a treehouse – See our Top Picks What is more romantic than spending the night under a canopy of stars & listening to the sounds of the wild? We have compiled a list of our favourite treehouse stays, so if it is romance you are after, look no further. 2. Enjoy a candle-lit dinner on the beach - Islands Spending your honeymoon on an island in the Indian Ocean means that you will have direct beach access, which only means one thing: romantic dinners with your feet in the sand. Eating fresh seafood while listening to the sound of the ocean is simply put – magical. 3. Surprise her with a private sundowner excursion – Kruger’s Private Reserves Kruger National Park’s safari lodges are great at arranging exclusive sundowner excursions for special occasions – like a honeymoon. Go on an afternoon game drive, get dropped off at a remote location in the bush & enjoy romantic sundowners with your spouse.

Treat yourselves to a couples’ massage – Cape Town There are many amazing spas in Africa, so you can get pampered while on safari, on an island or in a city. Some of our favourite spas are found in the vibrant city of Cape Town, so make sure to add a few nights in the Mother City before or after your safari honeymoon. 5. Taste good food & wine – Wine Route When it comes to exceptional food & wine, look no further than the famous Wine Route in South Africa.

And in Africa, there are plenty! You can witness beautiful sunsets from anywhere in Africa, but one of our favourite ‘sunset’ destinations, is from a boat on the Chobe River. Sipping on a G&T while seeing hippos & elephants play in the water, is very special. For those wishing to soak up more time on the Chobe River, try staying on a luxurious houseboat! The Zambezi Queen or Chobe Princess are both great choices. 7. Experience a night of stargazing - Namibia When it comes to stargazing, Namibia is the cherry on top!

Each treehouse is luxuriously set up for you, usually accompanied by a special dinner under the stars, a radio & a starry sky as canopy.

Enjoy Bespoke Safari Activities

The word bespoke also means ‘custom-designed’ or ‘tailored’ & here at Africa Unwind, we do exactly that. The holidays we design are made especially for you because we are passionate about taking all your holiday needs & requirements into consideration. When it comes to a honeymoon, there is nothing more frustrating than spending most of your time with others, in large groups or stuck to a certain schedule – rather than enjoying the privacy you so deserve! We’ll make sure that your honeymoon activities are tailored to perfection so that you can spend all your time focussing on the one you love. Here is a list of our favourite bespoke honeymoon activities that can all be enjoyed on your own & at your desired pace & time. 1. Private Day Tours, Cape Town - South Africa Cape Town is usually high up on the list when it comes to honeymoons. There is so much to see & do in & around this vibrant city – from the iconic Table Mountain & Boulders Beach with its adorable penguins to wining & dining in the Wine Route & getting pampered at a world-class spa. Instead of booking a scheduled tour, we’ll recommend private day tours – which means that you will have a dedicated driver, guide & air-conditioned vehicle & can explore the city at your own pace. 2. Exclusive Safari Drives - Safaris Most lodges in Africa have a maximum policy of 10 guests per safari vehicle, but when you are on honeymoon & require a little more privacy, exclusive use of a vehicle is high on the list. When you have a private ranger, tracker & vehicle, you can come & go as you wish & spend more time at a great sighting. Of course, it does come at an additional cost, but if privacy is truly what you are after – it is worth every cent. 3. Private Candle-lit Dinners – Islands Romantic dinners are all about atmosphere & location. When you are on honeymoon, we inform the lodges & resorts that you are celebrating a special occasion, so that they can go the extra mile for you. Usually, this means a special dinner in a beautiful location – be that on your private deck while on safari, or the beach next to the ocean. Our top pick is a candle-lit dinner on a tropical island – pretty romantic, isn’t it? 4. Couple’s Massages – Wine Route What is more relaxing than sharing a couple’s massage with your loved one? Africa has a long list of wellness spas that will tick all the boxes when it comes to pampering. Many safari lodges offer tranquil massages next to a waterhole, on your private deck or at the spa while most island resorts boast world-class spas overlooking the ocean. Some of our favourite spas can be found in Cape Town & the Wine Route, so make sure to add a spa day to your honeymoon itinerary. 5. The Bubble Bath Experience, Kruger National Park – South Africa For sheer indulgence, enjoy a romantic bubble bath in the comfort of your room or tent. Picture this: a sunken bath set on a secluded platform in the heart of the bushveld, as you relax by candlelight while enjoying a chilled glass of wine. Some of our favourite bathtubs can be found in the Kruger’s Private Reserve in South Africa. You’re on honeymoon, so leave it to us – we’ll arrange a romantic turn-down & Bubble Bath Experience for you.

Soak Up The Scenery

When it comes to spectacular scenery, Africa has it all. Vast plains, majestic mountains, sandy deserts & turquoise oceans…And it goes without saying that a honeymoon is not complete without the opportunity to soak up the scenery. One of the most important things we consider when planning a honeymoon is: views, views & more views! It is quite wonderful to wake up each morning to the site of a river, ocean, waterhole or desert in front of you. Your private deck with sala, plunge pool, deck chairs or hammock might just be the one place where you spend most of your time, so why not go big before going home? We have compiled a list of Africa’s most beautiful destinations – so when you visit, make sure to pack a camera so that you can capture beauty in its purest form. 1. Okavango Delta, Botswana Picture this: A pure river bursts out of wild highlands & then meander lazily through an African wilderness.

Viewing the Okavango Delta from the air (in a small plane) is quite spectacular. 2. Sossusvlei, Namibia Sossusvlei is one of Namibia’s top safari destinations. Set at the heart of the Namib Naukluft National Park, the clean-lined, curving slopes rise to a remarkable 300m & are – without a doubt – one of the most astonishing sights in the world.

Skeleton Coast, Namibia Now a graveyard for shipwrecked sailors whose vessels fell victim to the Atlantic’s treacherous currents, shifting sandbanks & thick fog, the Skeleton Coast is one of Namibia’s most remote regions, but also one that offers a ‘ship full’ of surprises. This untouched stretch of coastline is home to spectacular scenery that includes sweeping vistas of desert, ocean & sky. 8. Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe No one has ever wondered why Victoria Falls is listed as one of the only Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The local people call it Mosi-oa-Tunya, “The smoke that thunders,” because something magnificent happens when the river is high & the spray towers in the air while water gushes down like falling thunder. Visitors travel from all around the globe to catch a glimpse of this spectacular sighting. 9. Cape Town, South Africa Nestled between the Indian & Atlantic Oceans with iconic Table Mountain as backdrop, lies one of the world’s most vibrant & breathtaking cities.

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania The Ngorongoro Crater is an ancient volcanic caldera in northern Tanzania that offers some of East Africa’s easiest & most rewarding game viewing.

Luxurious cliff-top lodges are perched right on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, offering some of the best views in Africa, it not the world. 11. Serengeti National Park, Tanzania Home to the iconic Great Wildebeest Migration, the Serengeti not only offers one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in the world but is home to the coveted Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo & rhino, & delivers sensational game viewing year-round.

Talk about soaking up the scenery? This will do it! 13. Lake Malawi When you stare out over the palm-fringed sandy beach with crystal-clear water, it is easy to think you are on an oceanic tropical island rather than the shores of Lake Malawi – one of the world’s largest freshwater lakes. 14. Panorama Route, South Africa The Panorama Route is one of South Africa’s hidden gems & a destination that you should not travel to without a camera! Just a stone’s throw away from the world-renowned Kruger Park, this breathtaking region consists of dramatic landscapes as far as the eye can see.
