Many of our guests are searching for the ultimate honeymoon safari adventure with a relaxing beach holiday. We recommend that couples head on safari first for the adventure and leave the end of their holiday dedicated to time out lazing on an island or beach. Some of our guests don’t want to travel in malaria areas, avoiding medicines and opting for a more healthy, drug free safari!
So we thought we’d share one of our popular itineraries that offers a really lovely honeymoon safari experience with beach or island finale. It’s also great value, so ask us for a quote based on the dates you choose to travel.
