Untouched and unspoiled, Zambia is unique in how it offers a very pure and natural safari experience – perfect if you are looking for something personal and exotic on your luxury honeymoon. A honeymoon is supposed to be full of memorable moments, too, and Zambia is full of them, from the raw and incredible experience of a walking safari to the epic thunder of Victoria Falls. Zambia may fly under the radar when compared to other African safari destinations but its off-the-beaten-track status also makes it a great choice for a honeymoon.
Top five reasons for a honeymoon in Zambia
One of the seven natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is one of Zambia’s most famous attractions. Named after the reigning Queen of England at the time, Victoria Falls is also one of Africa’s greatest landmarks. Best seen from the air, Victoria Falls is a magical sight. Often done at the beginning of a trip, it's sure to set you off on what will be a truly unforgettable safari honeymoon. Called Mosi-oa-Tunya by locals, this translates as 'The Smoke That Thunders’ – a pretty accurate description of this incredible marvel.
One of Southern Africa’s greatest national parks, South Luangwa is simply safari paradise. Known as the ‘home of the leopard’, this beautiful place has it all: game, scenery, history, culture, exceptional guides, exclusive camps – the list goes on!
Zambia’s emphasis on guiding quality is exceptional. Renowned for having some of the best guides in Africa, this is no overstatement - guides in Zambia have to do a three-year course to get their guiding licence whereas some destinations it's only a one-year course. The difference is noticeable too - their knowledge, passion and enthusiasm is infectious and you will go home from your honeymoon brimming with tales to tell.
Experiencing Africa is often said to be best done by foot - there is no purer experience. Zambia was the birthplace of the walking safari and now offers the widest and best selection of experiences. They combine high-quality camps with prime wilderness to make an itinerary which is incomparable to any other.
A Turquoise favourite, this beautiful lodge offers the perfect start or finish to any safari. Tongabezi has a fantastic selection of rooms, all different and very well designed. There is no better place to stay and enjoy both the River Zambezi and Victoria Falls on your unforgettable luxury honeymoon.
