Whether you are just starting to plan your honeymoon trip of a lifetime, or you are looking for inspiration for a romantic holiday to celebrate an anniversary, or just to say 'I love you' to your nearest and dearest, a holiday to Africa will tick all the boxes.
Is your idea of romance spending a few nights ensconced in a luxury safari lodge, sipping sparkling wine under a canopy of stars every evening, and maybe inbetween game drives indulging your senses with a couples spa treatment?
Or walking hand and hand along a white sandy beach, with the warm Indian Ocean lapping at your toes as you watch the sun set into the ocean in a fiery blaze of glory.
Alternatively, you might prefer the spectacular 360 degree views of Cape Town from a cable car ride up Table Mountain, followed by a long, leisurely lunch looking out over mountains and vineyards. Or how about an overnight train ride through magnificent scenery on a beautifully restored train?
Or is your idea of a perfect honeymoon simply relaxing by a pool...
Whatever it is, the romance you will find here will turn a dream honeymoon or romantic holiday into a reality.

Fly into the Serengeti for 3 nights in the thriving Central Serengeti Plains, home to the Big 5 and so much more. Staying in an authentic tented camp, with breathtaking views over the hills and plains, there is an abundance of game all year round in this part of the Serengeti and even when the migration is not passing through, the residential wildlife is superb. Then fly across to the exotic island of Zanzibar, where white sandy beaches line the shores, fringed by wispy palm trees that sway gently in the breeze that comes off the Indian Ocean. The crystal clear, warm turquoise waters entice snorkellers and divers to explore never-ending coral reefs, and romantic dhows cruise into the golden sunsets.
