Posted on April 7, 2017, featured in Press

As same-gender marriages are becoming increasingly widespread throughout the world, it comes as no surprise that more and more gay couples are starting their journey together as newlyweds on an African safari. And after all, “safari” is the Swahili word for “journey.” Just think about it. The very thought of the word safari evokes a flood of imagination and wonder. Magnificent mountains, spectacular savannas, and breathtaking wildlife far beyond your wildest dreams—a safari is this and so much more. If you are looking for a gay-friendly honeymoon that will be etched in your hearts and minds forever, here are some reasons why an African safari is the ideal romantic getaway for two.


A safari is the pure definition of adventure. Can you imagine tracking a Black Rhino through the bush? How about watching a herd of elephants taking an early morning bath? Or gazing at a lone giraffe walking along the horizon? The drama doesn’t end with Africa’s wildlife. There are countless other activities that will kick-start married life, from dune surfing and cage shark diving to bungee jumping and white-water rafting beneath the mist of the Victoria Falls. When it comes to adventure, the possibilities are endless.


For honeymooners who love dreamy strolls on the beach, lazy sunset naps, and unforgettable excursions into the wild, an African safari has it all. There are a ton of luxurious lodges and camps to choose from, with staff waiting to pamper you the moment you arrive. Start your day with a romantic balloon safari, followed by a sumptuous spa treatment in the afternoon. After a day of soaking up Africa’s picturesque landscape, enjoy a starlit dinner, topping it all off with a champagne toast at sunset.


One of the best things about an African safari is getting away from all the noise and crowds that you’d expect to find at so many touristic honeymoon destinations. Most of the safaris you’ll experience are in remote, discreet areas, offering you and yours a chance to fully enjoy all the wonder and magic that is Africa, without the masses of people. The privacy and exclusivity of a safari can really add warmth to your honeymoon.

One-of-a-kind Experience 

Certainly not your average run-of-the-mill beach holiday, an African safari is truly an idyllic destination without equal. Whether it’s the pristine beaches of Mozambique, the unique ecosystems of the Okavango Delta, or Zimbabwe’s awe-inspiring wildlife, there is simply no place like it on earth. If you are looking for a fabulous honeymoon adventure that very few couples get to experience, an African safari offers an irresistible array of opportunities.

So there you have it. The perfect gay-friendly honeymoon awaits you. Whether it’s a lover’s stroll across a moonlit beach, holding hands on a game drive, or being pampered together at a luxurious lodge, an Africa safari provides ample canoodling possibilities.
