Why should you choose Africa for a honeymoon?
- To travel on safari to Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, South Africa, and Namibia;
- To make a trip to the tribes of Masaya, Himba, San, Zulu and hundreds of other tribes with interesting traditions!
- For the recreation on the beaches of the Indian Ocean in Zanzibar, Mombasa and Seychelles, Mauritius, Reunion;
In addition, the continent is rich in natural attractions: The Victoria Falls on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, the Table Mountain in Cape Town, the Tsingi Stone Forest in Madagascar, the Kilimanjaro mountain in Tanzania, the Nyiragongo volcano in the Congo, the Okavango River delta in Botswana, or the Pink Lake in Senegal. Well, the most exotic recreation is skiing in the ski resort in Lesotho in July-August!
- Make vaccines to make your honeymoon safe
Vaccination is not a serious or scary thing, but it definitely is a means of prevention your romantic vacation to be ruined. Whether vaccinations are needed or not depends on the country of destination. In South Africa, Morocco and Tunisia vaccinations are not needed. In all other countries, we recommend that you receive an inoculation against Yellow fever, typhoid and hepatitis A, and B, although the latter two are exclusively at your will. Formally, no one requires them.
- Try to catch the season
East and South Africa can be divided into the rainy seasons (November to April) – this is also the hottest time, and the drought season (June to October) is the cold season. So, in South Africa, it does snow indeed. This event, though it is rare, exists for the whole community of the South Africa Snow Report.
- Learn about the fauna if you love animals
The best place to observe wild animals are Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, South Africa and Namibia. And the best parks together with the most beautiful sights are exceptionally prominent in Kenya (Masai-Mara) and Tanzania (Serengeti and Ngorongoro) – here it is better to choose a trip to several parks. And yes, they have several offers for the newlyweds.
- Visit tribes! (An option for the bravest couples!)
Tribes in Africa are very numerous; the most striking are the tribes of the Omo River valley in Ethiopia. The Himba tribe in Namibia and one of the oldest primitive tribes that have survived to this day is the San (Bushmen), now living in separate groups in the Kalahari Desert, Botswana, and Namibia. You can order a day with a guide, who will introduce you to some residents of the most famous tribes. Those people are sure to get you acquainted with hundred years old traditions and exclusive customs!
- Visit resorts
It is worth paying attention to islands in Africa. Seychelles, Mauritius, Madagascar, and Mozambique also have excellent resorts, but the cost for the offered service is overstated, so it does not make sense to go here only for the sake of the beach! But you can spend a little extra to emerge to wild beauty together!
