Ultimate beach safari honeymoon

Imagine returning from a thrilling game drive and preparing yourself for a night under the stars in the African bush.....then head to a pristine beach in undiscovered Mozambique, Africa’s rising star!

It’s hard to beat the exhilaration of an African safari, but imagine returning from a thrilling game drive and preparing yourself for a night under the stars in the African bush. Many safari lodges now offer the chance for adventurous couples to enjoy an unforgettable moonlit night in a specially designed bush ‘sleep-out’ which can take a variety of forms from a unique treehouse to an elevated platform reached by a few wooden stairs. A hot bucket shower will hang from a tree and paraffin lamps will be set out beside your net-draped bed.  You’ll drift off to sleep to the sound of lions calling …and nothing quite compares with waking to an African dawn and watching the sun slowly rise over the wilderness!

  • Days 1-3 Makanyane Safari Lodge, South Africa

    Arrive in Johannesburg and transfer to the lounge to await your onward light aircraft flight to South Africa’s malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. Here, one of eight luxurious suites at the secluded Makanyane Safari Lodge awaits your arrival. This is Big Five country and you will enjoy game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles. Plan on missing the morning game drive at least once - the wraparound glass walls of your suite provide uninterrupted views of the surrounding bush and its inhabitants! Order breakfast in bed – surely one of the best ‘lie-ins’ imaginable! Pack some walking shoes – guided walks are offered and provide an exciting alternative to game drives and a different perspective on the bush! And throw away your diet – Makanyane’s food is too good to resist! A romantic candle-lit meal served on your private deck can easily be arranged – and of course, a ‘must’ is a night ‘under the stars’ on Makanyane’s sleep-out deck, hidden deep in the bush, next to a waterhole. This has to be the ultimate nocturnal African bush experience – sleeping out under the stars in a net-draped bed, seduced by the lullaby of roaring lions!

    Awake the following morning and watch the sun rise over the wilderness before returning to the luxury of your suite. Reward yourself with a pampering treatment in Makanyane’s Bush Spa.

    Stay: 3 nights at Makanyane Safari Lodge, all inclusive.

  • Days 5-10 White Pearl Resorts, Mozambique

    ‘Sand’ is the perfect accompaniment to ‘safari’ so today you take an onward flight to Maputo where you will connect with your scenic 30 minute helicopter sky transfer flight over remote dune bush and beautiful coastal scenery (including the Maputo Elephant Reserve) to White Pearl. This flight departs at 11.30am. White Pearl is situated on a private magnificent white sand beach in southern Mozambique (almost on the border with South Africa). Accommodation is provided in 21 contemporary suites, each with their own private pool and uninterrupted ocean views. The diving is sensational and you can also swim with bottlenose dolphins. In season, guests can also witness turtles nesting on the beach (Dec – Feb) and from July to November, Humpback Whales start migrating with great sightings between Sep – Nov as they come much closer to shore!

    Stay: 6 nights at White Pearl Resorts, half board.
