Honeymoons are definitely an area where we have always excelled whether it be tracking wild orang-utans through the jungles of Borneo or relaxing on a pristine beach in the Seychelles Honeymoons are also always fun to design as people want to make this special trip different to ensure it is completely unforgettable. Therefore they are often prepared to do things that are a bit more weird and wonderful! Taking this into consideration and applying it to our area of speciality, the natural world, we have the perfect canvas with which to work from. From tracking snow leopards in minus 30 degree temperatures, taking in the thunderous wildebeest migration of East Africa, cruising to the Antarctic and taking in the northern lights to relaxing in a wilderness lodge in the Canadian outback or swimming with blue whales off the coast of Sri Lanka, we have pretty much done it all. Combine memorable wildlife encounters with romantic luxury; from safari star beds to private beach retreats.
Throughout the honeymoons section of this site, you will find examples of honeymoons that we have designed throughout the world. Please feel free to browse these at your leisure, however if you do not find what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us and we would be more than happy to help.
For some, after the stress and lengthy planning of a wedding, a honeymoon is all about blissful relaxation and being waited on hand and foot. This means spacious and comfortable accommodation, sumptuous cuisine and fun activities that you can choose to undertake as and when it suits you. For couples looking for this type of honeymoon we have a number of outstanding lodges and boutique hotels that tick all the boxes. Of course, we are wildlife specialists so we like to be able to provide wildlife encounters as part of your travel experience too if that’s what you want.
For super luxurious accommodation you can’t beat North Island in the Seychelles. This exquisite lodge not only features expansive beachside villas, private plunge pools, marble baths and a personal massage area, it also has a strong conservation ethos and focuses on helping critically endangered wildlife with a sanctuary on the island itself. We can’t think of a better Indian Ocean honeymoon destination for those wishing to combine luxury and wildlife. Whether you choose to snorkel or dive in the surround reefs, relax by the pool, get up-close-and-personal with Aldabra giant tortoises that are scattered around the island or enjoy a sunset picnic, North Island offers everything and more that you could dream of for your perfect honeymoon.
If you’re looking for even more wildlife on your honeymoon and want to opt for a more traditional African safari, look no further than Botswana. This country is at the top of its game when it comes to providing high-end accommodation and exclusive experiences. Botswana honeymoons offer picture-perfect sundowners, unforgettable wildlife encounters and spectacular camps and lodges. Zarafa Camp in the Linyanti region of Botswana provides top-of-the-range binoculars and camera equipment for you to use throughout your safari so you can take home more than just memories from your honeymoon. You may even be able to spot wildlife gathering around the lagoon from the comfort of your private copper bathtub!
After the buzz and excitement of your wedding you may want to get away from it all and truly switch off from the world with your significant other.
If lazing about on the beach isn’t your bag, then perhaps your perfect idea of a honeymoon would involve something a little more active. Both Borneo and Costa Rica are fantastic destinations for combining hiking, wildlife viewing and adventurous activities with optional beach time. Whether you want to challenge yourself with a trek up Mount Kinabalu, get your heart racing by zip-lining through the jungle canopy or swim with whale sharks off the coast of Borneo we can tailor an active honeymoon to suit your requests. These countries have the added benefit of being great value safari destinations too so can suit those looking for an exciting honeymoon on a fixed budget.
Want the wild adventure but would like a luxurious lodge to go back to at the end of the day? Don’t worry, we’ve got that covered too. How about the incredible Greystoke Mahale lodge on the edge of Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania? Here you can trek to see chimpanzees in the Mahale Mountains then head back to camp to relax, go out fishing or even take a dip in the lake. Chimpanzee trekking can be somewhat strenuous as the chimp families move quickly through the trees but being able to stop and enjoy the presence of a creature that shares 98% of our DNA is an incredible experience and one that will make your honeymoon truly extraordinary.
After the buzz and excitement of your wedding you may want to get away from it all and truly switch off from the world with your significant other. Our off-grid safaris allow you to appreciate the natural world and the unique wildlife that resides there without the buzz of a mobile phone or the ping of an email to distract you. Remote doesn’t have to mean extremely basic though, perhaps choose a desert lodge in the Namibian wilderness, take in the breath-taking glacial lakes of Argentina or sit back in the darkness to watch the Northern Lights in Norway.
Serra Cafema lies on the stunning Skeleton Coast of Namibia and prides itself on its isolated location and peaceful tranquillity. Combining a rustic aesthetic with creature comforts, this lodge provides everything you need for a memorable off-grid safari. During your time here, enjoy adventure activities on the stunning surrounding dunes, look out for desert-adapted wildlife around the flowing Kunene River and learn about the culture and traditions of the semi-nomadic Himba tribespeople. This will certainly be one to write home about (although there may not be a post box anywhere nearby to send your postcard!).
If you’ve already experienced traditional safari destinations and want your honeymoon to be something a little out-of-the-ordinary, you may want to venture on one of our frontier safaris or perhaps even design your own. Our adventurous honeymoon safaris are not for the faint-hearted but will give you once-in-a-lifetime experiences that are sure to be different to your friends' and colleagues’ honeymoons. You could be camping out on the floe edge of Arctic Canada in search of polar bears, learning about Amur tiger tracking in the wilds of Siberia or seeking out pumas in Chilean Patagonia all of which are extremely Instagram-able adventures that will make you stand out from the crowd.
We want to enable our clients to travel deeper and scrape more than just the surface of the destinations they visit so each experience is truly unique. Therefore we put you in touch with locals, allow you to learn from conservationists and give you the opportunity to stay in some of the world’s most remote accommodation.
If you and your spouse love water and exploring the underwater world, then our marine safaris offer something particularly special in that you can dive in and swim alongside gentle giants such as sperm whales, orca, humpbacks and even blue whales! Travelling with renowned marine specialist and photographer Patrick Dykstra, means you are not only in the best hands when it comes to locating the whales, but also for photographing these giant creatures. Patrick will also get in the water with you and the whales so he can capture these incredible honeymoon moments on camera – what a souvenir!
