The most common African honeymoon questions we get asked are answered below. If you have any more questions or would like a tailor-made luxury African honeymoon of your dreams, contact us now and let us WOW you!

South Africa Honeymoon packages are the most popular with add-ons for Victoria Falls and luxury beach destinations like Seychelles, Mauritius and Mozambique recommended.

1. What is the best African honeymoon package?

The most popular African Honeymoon safari package is a combination of Cape Town for food, wine and scenery. The Kruger Park for amazing wildlife safaris and lastly The Seychelles for an exotic island getaway in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean off East Africa. 

2. How long should I go for?

Based on the popular combination of Cape Town, The Kruger Park and Seychelles, we recommend an 11-night honeymoon in Africa. This is 4 days in Cape Town with 2 of them in the French influenced winelands of Franschhoek. Then off to the Kruger Park for 3 nights in the wild on a Big Five safari, finishing off with 4 nights to relax and unwind on a pristine island in The Seychelles. 

3. How much does an African Honeymoon cost?

The costs vary depending on the accommodation type and time of travel. (low season to high season) To give you a broad-strokes idea, budget for $1,000 per person sharing daily for a luxury five star African honeymoon, all-inclusive. You can expect to pay between $500 to $750 per day for a luxury four star honeymoon in Africa - which is probably on par with five star accommodation in most western countries. 

4. What is the best month go on safari? 

Africa is a year-round destination with pros and cons for traveling in each season. Let's assume however you want to know the best time for a wildlife safari in the most popular reserve in Africa, namely The Kruger Park in South Africa. The answer then is late August to mid October when the bush is less dense and the wildlife more active thanks to the cooler daytime temperatures. 

5. What clothes should I wear on safari?

The African bush thankfully is not a fashion show so no need to over think your wardrobe. You're fine at any lodge if you stick to earth-tones. Guides and staff all wear an earth-tone combination of sorts and you'll feel right at home in the bush or at dinners, even at the most luxuriously lodges - we care far about the wildlife than your sense of fashion ;-)
