Zimbabwe is really a fantastic option for your special honeymoon. Unlike most hotels that tend to paint all their guests with one brush, many safari lodges in Africa are famed for their brilliantly bespoke hospitality. Small, thoughtful touches, such as rose petals on your bed, hand-crafted chocolates, surprise bush picnics, or a private candle-lit dinner, can make all the difference when on honeymoon.
The beautiful thing about this country is you get the privacy and the best experience of the famous Big 5. With game that can rival the rest of the continent, some of the best-trained guides in the world, and offers huge diversity in activities – from meandering down the Lower Zambezi River in a canoe to white water rafting below the iconic Victoria Falls, the teapot-shaped country is ideal for honeymooners and has every right to claim the title of a leading African honeymoon destination.
Definitely you won’t feel like “just another couple.”
Why a Zimbabwe Honeymoon?
With a wide range of pristine wilderness locations where romantic lodges are tucked away in large private concessions. The best of these take great care of honeymooners, with enchanting star lit dinners and surprises hidden around every corner.
Victoria Falls may be the obvious choice for a honeymoon in Zimbabwe but this is a big nirvana country and home to safari destinations that are just as romantic but with a twist of adventure. Victoria Falls with the new refurbished International Airport, to allow big carriers to be flown directly in – no faff, just safari and relaxation.
Diversity and convenience. It is home to the unique addition of Lake Kariba, offering honeymooners something very different! It allows you to relax after safari whilst being surrounded by the remote African wilderness.
The guiding here is unparalleled throughout the rest of Africa. The intimate nature of a honeymoon is really heightened when you are accompanied by an experienced, knowledgeable and passionate guide.
It is exceptional value for money. After splashing out on a big wedding, it seems almost silly to then pay for an extortionate safari to say when here you can get a memorable experience of a lifetime. We cannot stress this point enough!
Honeymoon destinations in Zimbabwe
Among our favorite camps, one stands out – Little Makalolo.
You may brush it off because of the name little. BUT don’t be fooled as this camp really screams honeymoon. It’s an idyllic, magical and romantic camp. There is a particular atmosphere that is epitomized by an added option of their private star-gazing candle-lit sleep out, where you can enjoy that iconic African soundscape whilst eating dinner overlooking the fantastic canvas of unspoilt wilderness of the Hwange National Park. All this is done in the privacy of your private al-fresco bedroom, and within the safe confides of its raised platform.
