Mozambique is an excellent choice for honeymooners and romance, whether you’re looking for all-inclusive pampering, adventure, or barefoot luxury.

It is not easy to know where to go for your luxury honeymoon in Africa or which country and region is the best destination for the two of you – which is why we are here to help you. We have come up with some extraordinary venues for adventurous couples who love pure relaxation and some great game viewing on safari:

  • Private islands along the East African coast are ideal bush-beach honeymoon destinations and we vote for Mozambique’s Benguerra Island in a marine reserve. 

Azura Benguerra honeymoons are wildly romantic.

  • Inland, glimmering lakes invite tranquil breaks in Africa and we know that warm-hearted Malawi presents a unique water and island safari setting so we vote for Likoma Island.

Idyllic accommodation at Kaya Mawa.

  • Tanzania is the epitome of an East African safari and just offshore lies the magnificent Zanzibar Spice Islands where romance knows no bounds and we vote for the secret havens of Pemba Island. 

The Manta Resort features an underwater bedroom!

  • Thousands of seasoned travelers recently rated South Africa as the top country to visit in the world and Cape Town is the hottest African city. Honeymoons can only be world-class in such a location so, looking forward to 2024, we suggest that you combine a tour to Cape Town and the Cape Winelands with a thrilling Eastern Cape safari. 

La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek is a great way to wine and dine.

  • From there, take a road trip to Kruger National Park and enjoy some of the most luxurious lodges in Africa – in the famous Sabi Sands, Timbavati and Kapama Private Game Reserves. This is the greatest National Park in South Africa where lavish accommodation treats honeymoon couples to excellence in game viewing and dining. 

Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve is romance defined.

  • There is nothing like ending off a tranquil Lux Moon in a place like Sun City where entertainment is paramount, but you are still in a premier African safari setting! We suggest a few nights at the Lost City for an extraordinary luxury break in a make-believe environment created for kings and queens like yourselves. 

The Palace of the Lost City is wild and astonishing.

Honeymoon Budgets – Planning and Costs

Honeymoon budgets can cause stress between loved ones but why not discuss the planning and save costs way in advance of the big romantic holiday? Planning a honeymoon is part of the fun and costs can be incorporated into your monthly budget planning for the year ahead if need be. Some couples will invest as much GBP 5000 each on their dream Lux Moon in Africa, splashing out on lavish Tanzanian and Kenyan safari tours or adventures in remote wilderness areas like the Okavango, Namibian Skeleton Coast and Rwandan gorilla trekking.

It helps to set a clear budget and then plan for your dream African destination, choosing appropriate activities to indulge in for a few weeks. Some honeymoon couples forfeit wedding gifts in lieu of cash for their honeymoons which they then splurge on and spend a month away in Africa!
