Honeymoon Questions and Answers
Q. When is the best time for safari?
A. Throughout the year there are at least a couple of safari destinations with excellent game viewing and fine weather. In our summer you can pretty much choose your destination, but in our winter we would recommend some countries over others.
Q. What is the ideal format of a honeymoon?
A. This completely depends on you, but a few nights on the beach is often the perfect introduction to Africa. After this you’re ready for the excitement of safari proper and we usually suggest dividing your time between a number of different camps. Somewhere to relax at the end of the trip so you return home refreshed is also worth considering.
Q. We have a big anniversary coming up and would like to take the whole family away on holiday but we don’t want to be stuck with lots of other tourists, what would you suggest?
A. There are a number of private houses in wonderful safari areas throughout Southern and East Africa. As well as these, many of the camps we use are small and a group of eight or more may find they take over the whole camp ensuring both privacy and flexibility of activities.
Q. We would like to travel to Africa but do not necessarily want to go on safari. Is this something that you offer?
A. We can easily arrange non-safari type holidays. South Africa, Mozambique, Seychelles and Mauritius would be good destinations to look at.
Q. Can we be ensured privacy on our honeymoon or anniversary?
A. Many of the lodges have specific honeymoon tents or rooms which are located away from other tents. Camps are also very good at arranging private dinners and bush breakfasts away from other guests. In some cases we can arrange private villas on safari and at the coast where you are assured complete privacy.
Q. How expensive are these romantic get aways?
A. This depends on where you decide to go. Trips to Africa start from £3,000. Have a look at our prices and itinerary suggestions page for more information and ideas.
Q. What is the legal status of getting married aboard?
A. Getting married in Africa is completely legal in the UK. You will need to fill in quite a bit of paper work and have a civil service in a nearby registry office before the ceremony which can be (almost) anywhere you choose.
Q. We would like to celebrate a civil partnership. Where can we go?
A. Africa is becoming more and more gay friendly and same sex couples are very welcome throughout Southern and Eastern Africa
