Honeymoon Safaris to make you SwoonOctober 28, 2016
Whimsical and romantic with a touch of adventure, a honeymoon safari in Africa is hard to beat.
Weddings can be as stressful as they are enjoyable. The lead-up to it involves loads of planning and preparation, then the big day arrives and before you know it, it’s over in a whirlwind. Your honeymoon, however, should be a time of rest, relaxation and reflection.
Escaping to the African bush for a while is one of the best ways to celebrate the beginning of your lives together. Tucked away in total seclusion, surrounded by pristine wilderness and wildlife, a honeymoon safari offers the perfect combination of dreaminess and adventure.
While most safari lodges offer some element of romance, there are some which hit the romantic nail on the head when it comes to honeymoons. Here are a few which never fail to make us swoon:
Where is it: Perched on the edge of the extinct volcanic Lake Kyaninga in Uganda, Kyaninga Lodge offers 8 en-suite cottages with private verandas with views looking down onto the lake, and the Rwenzori Mountains, the fabled “Mountains of the Moon”, in the distance.
Why we love it: Aside from its sublime location and accommodation options, Kyaninga Lodge is only an hour away from Kibale National Park. The park is home to over 1000 chimpanzees and other wildlife and guests at Kyaninga can go enjoy chimpanzee tracking as part of their stay. This is one of the last authentic wildlife experiences in Africa and certainly a magical experience to share with your new life partner.

Sand Rivers Selous
Where is it: Sand Rivers is situated on the rocky peninsula of the Rufiji River, in the northern part of the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. It comprises eight elegant rooms, each with their own private veranda overlooking the river.
Why we love it: Sand Rivers is the most isolated lodge in Tanzania and offers a truly intimate and exclusive safari experience. Selous Game Reserve is the second largest protected wilderness area in the world and the area surrounding the lodge is home to a plethora of fauna and flora, making it the ideal place for exploring the bush. Whether it be a game drive, a bush walk or a boating safari, every adventure is tailored to the guests’ requirements.

Where is it: Situated in the heart of the Kalama Community Wildlife Conservancy in northern Kenya, Saruni Samburu boasts six luxury, eco-chic villas, each with their own private verandas heralding spectacular views over Kalama Conservancy and Mount Kenya.
Why we love it: Northern Kenya is one of Africa’s last true wilderness areas and the absence of fences makes it one of the few places left that allows for the free movement of wildlife across a vast area. Surrounded by 200,000 acres of wilderness teeming with wildlife, Saruni Samburo is in the heart of it all, and guests at the lodge can explore the area with local Samburu guides. These guides know the land like the back of their hands and will guide you around their territory looking for the animals that you want to find.
