Top End Indulgent Honeymoon Escapes

Affordable Honeymoon Getaways

  • BEACH HONEYMOON - Tropical Island Paradise – 5 Nights – Mauritius (Specials for Feb & Mar 2012)

 

Africa's allure is safari romance, being out in the wilds of Africa, where the heart races to the call of the African Fish Eagle and the whoop of the hyena and the heart stopping, reverbrating roar of the King of the Jungle. Doesn't it all sound so remote, so enticing, so different, and oh so romantic…. that's because it is…. honeymoon romance on safari – fireside dining, the blackness of the night pressing close, a million stars up above… the wilds of the African bush is intoxicating and with so many top game reserves to choose from – both luxury and budget – you are spoilt for choice. Recommended safari destinations include the Kruger National Park and the private reserves of the Sabi Sands, that share an unfenced border with Kruger. There is also the Madikwe Reserve, and the Kalahari Reserve in South Africa where red earth meets blue sky, or perhaps Botswana's Okavango Delta or Chobe National Park entices you, or there's Zambia's remote South Luangwa National Park – but don't just choose one safari destination, combine areas to increase your chances of viewing a wide range of wildlife and wilderness habitats.

The other benefits of honeymooning in Africa, is simply being on 'Africa time' - where the popular phrase, I'll do it 'just now' means 3 minutes from now or 3 hours from now.. but everyone understands. Africa's sunshine weather is also a drawcard of course and that leads us wax lyrical about a coastline that has a thousand different faces, wild and rugged, great stretches of golden sand lapped by a warm Indian Ocean within gentle bays for great swimming, diving and snorkelling. High vegetated dunes, where the massive leatherback and loggerhead turtles lay eggs on ancient nesting grounds, or a coastline dotted with shipwrecks and an errie and desolate coastline, known as the Skeleton Coast in Namibia. So combine your safari with a beach honeymoon as well – end off on one of the many incredible coastal options throughout South Africa, as well as Mozambique, Tanzania and Kenya. Malawi is an inland lake that is also a fascinating 'beach' destination for honeymooners.

The tropical islands of the Indian Ocean Island offer a marvelous escape for honeymooners Robinson Crusoe shabby chic, or resort style island retreat, where pristine white beaches and warm gentle azure waters, palm fringed beaches and a laid back friendly island ambiance are just perfect for honeymooners.
Tropical Island destinations include:

  • Mozambique's Bazaruto Archipelago and Mozambique's Quirimbas Archipelango
  • Mauritius
  • The Seychelles
  • Madagascar

South Africa also has it's fair share of interesting cities, culture, adventure – whatever your honeymoon style – do you want to be active or inactive? travel off-the-beaten-track? mix culture with adventure? safari and beach? join a group tour or a backpacking overland adventure where you will meet loads of fellew treavellers? Let us know what you want from your honeymoon and we will tailore make a honeymoon package for you.
