Honeymoon Ideas and Prices
We arrange honeymoons, romantic, and celebratory holidays to Africa and the Indian Ocean islands to suit a range of budgets. It is important for us to have an idea of what you would like to spend, even at the first stage of discussing ideas, so we can suggest the best itinerary for you. We will not always spend all of this if we don’t think it’s necessary, but we will advise where we think another hundred pounds or so will make a dramatic difference.
Each itinerary is individually tailored but below are some sample itineraries in various price brackets.
