Safari properties – and beyond – for honeymooners and couples
If you’re a couple seeking romantic accommodation for your safari in Africa, you can’t go past a tented camp. There’s simply nothing quite like sleeping under canvas, with the African stars above you and the calls of wildlife lulling you to sleep. There’s a huge diversity of tented camp properties to choose from – it all comes down to your individual preference. Whether you seek romantic baths, treehouse sleepouts, butler service, couples’ massages or something more adventurous, we’ve got you covered… in canvas.

Romantic beaches and islands
Beach holidays are synonymous with relaxation and romance. While you might not instantly think of Africa when it comes to beaches, there are so many stunning coastlines and Indian Ocean islands to explore. Our favourite stretch of coastline runs along the east coast of South Africa, all the way up through Mozambique. For an island getaway, check out the spectacular Seychelles, Réunion, Mauritius and Zanzibar.

Romantic city escapes
Thanks to flight schedules and logistics, you might need a city stopover when you travel to Africa, but don’t let that worry you: Africa boasts some incredibly vibrant, creative and funky cities and towns, where romance is at every turn. Even if you don’t need to stopover you’ll be tempted to stay in one of the city’s opulent hotels on the waterfront of Cape Town in South Africa, or in a traditional house-turned-boutique hotel (called a riad) in Morocco’s Marrakech.
