To award a geographic location as the ‘most romantic’ might spur some debate, but we think that Africa has the most romantic destinations on earth. From the romance of adventuring with your sweetheart to the beautiful tents and lodges you will call home while on safari, no detail is overlooked when Africa Adventure Consultants customizes your romantic stay in Africa. Whether it’s for a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon, milestone anniversary, a Valentine’s Day surprise or simply a getaway for you and your special someone, there is no better way to celebrate your connection. With special touches like bush breakfasts, couples’ baths or spa treatments, hot air balloon rides and more, we can help make your safari the trip of a lifetime. Add to that a night or two in a ‘star bed,’ and you have a recipe for a totally unique and unbeatable safari!

Thinking of a Romantic Safari?

Recognized as one of the most unexpectedly romantic experiences on a safari, the star bed is the unsung hero of a honeymoon or anniversary safari. What’s a star bed, you ask? Picture a private terrace or tree house with a luxurious bed under Africa’s night skies. These aren’t your backyard tree houses of childhood! These are bush ‘bedrooms’ that run from basic (but very comfortable) decks, to elaborate structures with all of the little luxuries a traveler might wish for and then some. They come with plush bedding and cozy linens, an ‘en-suite’ bathroom (many with a shower or bath… star bath, anyone?), a way to communicate to the lodge, plus the whole of the Milky Way carpeting the sky as a night light accompanied by the lullaby of the African bush for a sound sleep. We’ll work closely with you to determine which star bed experience would be right for your romantic trip.

To get started, you can check out our special honeymoons page, or check out our Pinterest board for even more visual honeymoon and romantic travel ideas. We always recommend that you connect with a Journey Specialist to walk through options and learn more about honeymoon special offers and discounts. If you’re thinking about giving the gift of romantic travel to a loved one, be it your future spouse, or perhaps a child or grandchild who is tying the knot, we can even provide a ‘travel coupon’ to commemorate the gift and get the process started.
