09 Oct A different honeymoon in a Safari
Most couples when they are planning their honeymoons look to travel somewhere romantic, exotic or even different as the city they came from. But the new trend is talk about wild life.
Many also look to go on a trip of a lifetime – somewhere where they would not normally get the chance to go. Going on a honeymoon safari can fulfill both of these desires, and send newlyweds on the romantic vacation of a lifetime.
Going on a honeymoon safari offers you the chance to experience a trip like no other. Many honeymoon safaris offer opportunities to spend the day on a secluded beach or take in a remote area where few get to go. While there are times when you will be with a guide (and, when you are experiencing African wildlife up-close, you will likely want to have a guide!), there are lots of times where you will be alone to enjoy each other’s company with no one else around. The privacy that a honeymoon safari can offer is amazing. Companies that book honeymoon safaris boast about their abilities to book you private accommodations and excursions, and those who go on them rave about the individual attention they receive.
Going on a safari is more than just getting to see animals. Of course, you do get to see animals – getting to see African giraffes, elephants, zebras, and lions up close is often one of the highlights of a honeymoon safari. And part of a honeymoon safari is usually going on a traditional safari to view wildlife. Trekking through the Serengeti is a once in a lifetime experience. But a honeymoon safari can be so much more. Many trips offer adventures like white water rafting, hot air ballooning, and scuba diving. You can hike along the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro (or even hike to the top) or snorkel along the coast of Zanzibar. And you can take part in environmental efforts in the region as well.
Going on a honeymoon safari doesn’t mean that you will have to give up the romance. Most packages include romantic dinners for two and secluded hotel accommodations. You also can be pampered with spa treatments for two or stay in a luxury chalet. Many companies offer you the opportunity to spend time on a private beach where newlyweds are completely alone. And if you prefer to be completely isolated with your new spouse, that is often an option as well. In fact, a honeymoon safari might be one of the most romantic trips in the world.
