An ideal destination for any couple wishing to experience 'authentic' Africa

Private camps, romantic river dinners and extraordinary wildlife sightings make Zambia a truly special honeymoon destination

Zambia is often ignored as a honeymoon destination which is a real shame, as it’s a wonderful safari location and really offers everything honeymooners look for in a trip to Africa. The style of the lodges is wonderfully romantic, with small camps offering a degree of intimacy that many other countries struggle to replicate. Many of the camps here are what we regard as bush camps, often designed with open fronts and just a mosquito net between the bed and the elements, which is a thrilling way to enjoy your tailor made Zambia honeymoon.

It’s also much quieter than many destinations, with fewer vehicles found within the national parks so it can offer a very private safari experience, again not something you find everywhere in Africa. The wildlife viewing is superb which really helps to transform a honeymoon into a truly extraordinary experience. With superb guides, the chance to enjoy walking safaris as well as boat and canoe trips, the variety on offer here really makes for a superb holiday. Certain camps are also able to offer a sleepout experience, which is a great way to spend a night sleeping under the stars with dinner cooked over an open fire.

Of course visiting Victoria Falls is high on many honeymooners’ lists of things to do on a luxury Zambia honeymoon, and helpfully they are easily accessed from a number of the national parks. There are some superb lodges upstream from The Falls which are perfect for spending a romantic few days visiting the area, enjoying boat cruises and even picnic lunches on sandbars in the heart of the Zambezi River.

Whilst Zambia doesn’t have any coastline itself, the shimmering warm waters of Lake Malawi are just a short plane ride away, making it perfect for honeymooners looking to enjoy a classic ‘bush and beach’ experience.
