Honeymoon Questions and Answers
Q. When is the best time for a safari?
Throughout Africa there are several safari destinations available year round with exceptional game viewing and beautiful weather. In the summer and fall seasons pretty much any safari destination is at your disposal, but during the winter and spring there will be some countries that we recommend over others.
Q. What is the ideal format of a honeymoon?
A. Each honeymoon we arrange is tailored to the unique requests and needs of each of our clients', therefore there is no "ideal format" for a safari honeymoon. We have found that many clients enjoy a few nights of rest and relaxation on one of Africa's stunning beaches as a safari introduction. Following this rejuvenating experience you should be ready to enjoy your African safari as we suggest dividing your time between a number of different camps. We also suggest that you take some leisure days at a relaxing destination at the end of your trip so you can return home refreshed.
Q. We have a big anniversary coming up and would like to take the whole family away on holiday but we don’t want to be stuck with lots of other tourists, what would you suggest?
A. You will be pleased to know that many of the camps we use are small and a group of eight or more can end up booking a whole camp allowing both privacy and flexibility of activities. Also, there are areas of Southern and East Africa that offer excellent safaris with an abundance of private houses.
Q. We would like to travel to Africa but do not necessarily want to go on safari. Is this something that you offer?
A.We have easily arranged countless non-safari vacations at excellent destination spots in South Africa, Seychelles, Mauritius and Mozambique.
Q. Can we be ensured privacy on our honeymoon or anniversary?
A. Many of the camps feature special honeymoon tents/rooms that are separated from other guests. Additionally, many camps offer private dinners and bush breakfasts throughout your stay. For the ultimate romantic getaway we can also arrange safaris in private villas on the coast where you will find unparalleled privacy.
Q. How expensive are these romantic get aways?
A. This all depends on where you would like to go. African vacations start under $5,000, and if you would like more information please see our prices and itinerary suggestions page.
Q. What is the legal status of getting married aboard?
A. Getting married in Africa is completely legal in the US. You will need to fill in quite a bit of paper work and have a civil service in a nearby registry office before the ceremony which can be (almost) anywhere you choose.
Q. We would like to celebrate a civil partnership. Where can we go?
A. Africa is becoming more and more gay friendly and same sex couples are very welcome throughout Southern and Eastern Africa
