In today’s world, the biggest luxury is time. This tour, which features handpicked accommodation and superb activities, allows you to lavish no less than 23 days on your honeymoon, that extraordinary and romantic phase in your newly wedded life.
Taking in Southern and East Africa’s best spots – think Cape Town, the Kruger National Park, Masai Masa, Ngorongoro Crater and the sublime north coast of Zanzibar – is made easy with effortless private transfers and attention to detail. You kick off your indulgent sojourn at Ellerman House, a favourite with international A-listers, where you will also be whisked away to see Cape Town’s best art on an exclusive tour of the famous Cape Winelands.
From there, it is time for safari and there are few places more lavish in the Kruger than Singita Lebombo Lodge. With fine dining, pampering spa treatments and unusual activities like archery and mountain biking in addition to top-notch game drives, Lebombo consistently delivers superb Big 5 sightings. Your next safari destination is Kenya’s famed Masai Mara, where you check into super-contemporary Angama Mara. Designed to feel as if each glass-fronted suite is balancing on the cliff face over the escarpment in the Mara Triangle, you will soar like an eagle above the awakening plains on a dawn hot-air balloon safari.
Then it is back to earth at Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, a baroque fantasy on the edge of the world’s largest unbroken caldera in Tanzania. A jaw-dropping sight, the caldera is home to thousands of animals who never leave its steep walls, making for rewarding game viewing.
Finally, alight at Kilindi in a Zanzibar, one of the island’s most private and romantic beach retreats. With private plunge pools, discreet personal butlers, tours of historic Stone Town and a chef who trained with famous foodie Jamie Oliver, Kilindi tops off a decadent honeymoon in Africa.
