I was inspired to do this when a friend (The one who got the 3mil engagement ring) told me she was having her honey moon somewhere in Africa. She's been to Europe severally and wanted to explore Africa...for her honeymoon.
Before I marry any man, I'll ask him, "Where are we going for our honeymoon?" If he says Africa, I'm...
Well moving on...here are some beautiful places you can travel to in Africa..
Kenya has some of Africa's most spectacular scenery with volcanoes, lakes, immense grassy plains and a beautiful coastline. If you go between July and September you can see the world's greatest wildlife migration in the Masai Mara. It is somewhere you can meet local Maasai and other tribes if you wish. You can choose the traditional vehicle-based route or the more remote and adventurous fly-in route.
The Nyika Plateau which rises to over 8,000ft can provide breathtaking walking and horseback safaris, while Lake Malawi itself has several high quality beach hotels , some set off little islands, where you can enjoy snorkelling, diving, sailing and waterskiing, providing a pleasant few days break after a safari in Zambia perhaps.
At the southern tip of Lake Malawi are the Liwonde wetlands, in some ways resembling the Okavango Delta and from Mvuu Safari Camp you can enjoy boating, walks and game drives by open vehicle, seeing elephant, rhinoceros and antelope, and over 350 species of beautiful birds.
The best time to visit Malawi is from April to the end of October.
Phinda is a superb choice as it has so many different types of habitat and a correspondingly wide range of animals with elephant, lion, rhinoceros, antelope, buffalo and leopard all present in good numbers. You can enjoy safaris there by open vehicle, during the day and at night, on foot and by boat, and can even take a light aircraft down to their great deserted beach. The accommodation is sumptuous and you can choose to be on a mountain top or in the heart of the forest.
Some of the favourites are The Cellars, Lanzerac in the winelands and The Cape Grace in Cape Town. Head along the Garden Route absorbing the fantastic scenic coastline, nature reserves and forests before arriving at the marvellous city of Cape Town where you can enjoy Table Mountain, Robben Island, local markets and the wonderful harbour before heading out to the winelands.
The Cape region has some unforgettable scenic places to visit and spectacular dining.
During certain months of the year the migration of over a million wildebeest, zebra and Thompson's gazelle is found in the Masai Mara. . You might also enjoy a visit to a Masai village or perhaps like to be hosted by Masai at your lodge.
Enjoy a private mobile safari and have your camp set up for you under the baobab trees or near a river, and be looked after by your own cook and safari guides. After exploring the Serengeti you might like to visit the Ngorongoro crater and spend a few nights at a luxury lodge situated on it's rim, or head further south to the Selous and Ruaha National Parks, or west to the Mahale and Katavi mountain regions.
The Okavango Delta is the heart of a Botswana safari. Be poled along in your mokoro on the sparkling waterways that create a vast oasis of palm islands and grassland.
