What to do for a Safari Honeymoon
My safari honeymoon was one of the highlights of my life. Being so connected with nature helps you connect more intimately with your partner, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Planning the safari, and all the honeymoon logistics, wasn’t easy. There were a lot of factors to consider, but in the end it was worth the extra organization. Here are the top things to consider when it comes to choosing your safari honeymoon:
Look for location, not just animals
Seeing animals in their natural habitat is always the highlight of a safari, but for your honeymoon it’s important to choose a nice resort or hotel, along with a beautiful location to enjoy even if there aren’t any animal sightings.
My husband and I narrowed our search down to South Africa, namely, Krugar Park. Then we looked at the highest rated resorts (offering great food, great service and above all great safari walks and drives) and picked the best one for us.
Find the best for your budget
As soon as you hear safari honeymoon you instantly think expensive. But that’s not the case. If you budget effectively, you don’t have to spend tens of thousands on the safari. We decided to visit most of South Africa on our own and only spent a few days at the Safari resort. We got the experience we wanted at the price we could afford. It was a win, win!
