Africa Boasts the Most Romantic Destinations Here’s Why

August 31, 2020  By: Gretchen

It’s been more than 30 years since the release of ‘Out of Africa,’ and somehow Africa has only gotten more romantic! There’s no better place on earth for a honeymoon, anniversary, proposal or other romantic trip. A safari is a special way to celebrate your bond, and we know how to make your trip as memorable as possible. A few highlights of a romantic trip with Africa Adventure Consultants include…

1. Sundowners in the Bush

Do you ever just stop what you’re doing to witness the 20 or 30 minutes it takes for the sun to set when you’re at home? Well it’s practically a requirement on an African safari. Watching the sun set and the African skies slowly begin to twinkle until you find yourselves under a shower of starlight is a magical experience, and taking the time to slow down and be in the moment (and be with each other!) is incredibly romantic.

2. Honeymoon Suites

You don’t have to be on your honeymoon to book these special suites. Many provide extra privacy and amenities that will knock your socks off. Just be sure to tell your safari specialist that you’re celebrating a romantic occasion on safari.

3. Privacy

If your idea of romance is having time for just the two of you, a romantic safari is the solution! We know which accommodations have the most spacious and romantic rooms (and which ones are the most private). We can arrange for private dining, special dinners and private beach cabanas. We can also offer private vehicles for the duration of your visit (at extra cost). Mention this to your safari specialist when booking.

4. Special Touches

We don’t want to reveal too much here as we love to surprise our clients, but let’s just say we have lots of tricks up our sleeves for adding special touches to your romantic safari. Private bush dinner, rose-petal bubble baths or al fresco showers, anyone?

5. Do Something Completely Different

You aren’t like anyone else, so you don’t want the same honeymoon or romantic trip as everyone else. Rather than sitting on a beach for your honeymoon, why not do something completely different? Gorilla trekking is one of the most incredible experiences on offer in Africa. Stay in a rain forest retreat where you can spend your days being active by trekking to view some of the world’s remaining 850 mountain gorillas. Spend your evenings soaking in your room’s huge bathtub that looks straight into the jungle canopy, followed by a cocktail on the private viewing deck served by your personal attendant just before dinner. Then tuck in to your cozy bed at night for a sleep well-earned!

Bonus. The Wow Factor!

Africa ‘wows’ on so many levels – the wildlife, the activities, the culture, the night skies… Many call a visit to Africa a once-in-a-lifetime trip, so why not take it to celebrate a romantic milestone? The memories will last a lifetime, and you may find that you develop a romance with Africa itself!
