Top 5 Romantic Safaris in Africa

 

With sweeping landscapes, abundant African wildlife and less crowded, but more exclusive islands, Africa truly delivers the most unforgettable romantic vacation experiences. Whether celebrating a honeymoon, enjoying a milestone moment, or renewing vows, we know African romance and have put together our top five most romantic safaris filled with African Travel, Inc.’s favorite meaningful moments. Get ready to fall in love!

Cape Town, Safari and Mozambique

African Romance is our most popular trip because it artfully combines Cape Town, Kruger National Park and one of the most Eden-like islands of Africa off of Mozambique. From farm to fork lunches at Babylonstoren and romantic candlelight dinners on safari, friends will be envious of this trip, especially of the gorgeous pics on the beach or snorkeling in the jewel of the Indian Ocean. 

Exchanging vows with a Maasai blessing

Enchanting East Africa is already jam packed with amazing safari experiences in 11 days  – feeding a giraffe at breakfast, adopting and visiting an orphaned elephant,  game drives on both Kenya’s Maasai Mara and Tanzania’s Serengeti, and relaxing on the spice island of Zanzibar. But it also has one of the most unforgettable ways to celebrate love that can be added when visiting the Maasai Mara. After an afternoon game drive followed by a private sundowner, couples can exchange their own vows with a Maasai blessing conducted by village elders.

South Africa’s best hotels

Cape Town is well known as one of the world’s best cities, but one of our other favorites is Durban and its charming Oyster Box, a five-star luxury hotel, and national treasure, overlooking the Indian Ocean.  Not only is the Oyster Box the inspiration for the legendary love affair between our chairman Stanley Tollman and his wife Bea, but it also tops TripAdvisor’s list for South Africa’s best hotel.   We love combining these two coastal towns and two hotels the Oyster Box and the Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa, with a classic luxury tented safari in the untouched Zululand wilderness in South African Splendor.

Front row seats for the Great Migration and sleep under the stars

For couples desiring a front row seat to the Great Migration, Under Kenyan Skies delivers epic explorations of two distinct wildlife regions while staying at luxurious lodges and tented camps, including Mahali Mzuri, Sir Richard Branson’s 12-tented luxury safari camp.  Morning and evening safari game drives and walks in the iconic Laikipia and the Maasai Mara awaken your senses.  Experience the delight of sleeping under the endless night sky in a four poster Star bed while listening to the call of the wild at the Loisaba Conservancy, a place perfect for adventure where days are filled with walks with your traditional Samburu guide in the bush or a local village or try more exciting pursuits.

Be beguiled in Botswana

For a truly intimate safari experience, Botswana is the gold standard. The government has ensured that camps stay small and our footprint in the natural habitat even smaller. The result is uncrowded with high-impact experiences along the thriving waterways of the Okavango Delta and the ancient baobabs of the Chobe National Park. Our Delta, Rivers and Falls has it all –sundowner cruises on the Chobe River, Soul of Africa massage, and some of the most amazing experiences with elephants you can imagine.  Plus, there’s a bonus treehouse stay in Zambia for a truly different perspective on Victoria Falls.
