We have thought long & hard about the best ways to indulge in romance, so get ready to start dreaming.

1. 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. (accompanied by a discreet member of staff who will look after your safety)

4. 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. Known as the country’s gourmet capital, this iconic route – made up of the lovely towns of Franschhoek, Stellenbosch & Paarl - boasts award-winning fine dining restaurants, farm-to-table cuisine & superb wines. Romance is not complete without good food (& wine)!

6. Go On A Romantic Sunset Boat Cruise – Chobe National Park There is something magical about watching the sun sets over the horizon. 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! Since most camps boast remote settings surrounded by desert & stars – this is the best place to enjoy uninterrupted views over the Milky Way. Some camps also offer star bed sleepouts – the perfect choice for a honeymoon.

Where Can I Do This?
Where Can I Do This?
Sleep In A Treehouse

An African holiday is all about making (childhood) dreams a reality. When we grow up, we sometimes forget that life is still full of fantasy, mystery & fun. Many safari lodges throughout Africa offer guests just that – a unique & magical experience…& what is more magical than spending a night in a treehouse under the stars? Each treehouse is luxuriously set up for you, usually accompanied by a special dinner under the stars, a radio & a starry sky as canopy. Some treehouses are located in the middle of the bush (close enough to camp) while others come in the form of ‘star beds’ on your chalet’s open rooftop deck. Step back with us into childhood & see which treehouse stay you prefer. (Please note that most treehouse stays are only available when booking a room at the lodge, in the event that you have to return to your room due to bad weather.) 1. Lion Sands Treehouses, Sabi Sand Game Reserve – South Africa The crème de la crème of treehouses can be found in the game-packed Big 5 Sabi Sand Game Reserve & the Kruger Private Concession in South Africa.
