If you are planning an Africa honeymoon, we've got the perfect spot for you. In recent years, Mozambique has increased in popularity as a honeymoon destination for several good reasons. It offers the promise of adventure, excellent weather year-round, outstanding natural beauty and the opportunity to engage with different cultures. Couples looking for a unique and authentic holiday experience will not be disappointed with a honeymoon in Mozambique.

Direct flights available between the Kruger Park in South Africa and Mozambique allow newlyweds to easily combine a safari with a beach holiday. That way they can experience both a land and sea safari. As the islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago in southern Mozambique lie within a marine sanctuary, the pristine reefs and abundant aquatic life make for some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving in the world. An abundance of fish, manta rays and turtles fill the waters here and between July and October the humpback whales pass by here on their way to the warmer waters of the East African Coast to mate and calve.

Of course, honeymoons are all about romance, pampering and privacy. This is where Azura Benguerra Island excels. From the moment they arrive via helicopter on the island, honeymooners are treated like royalty. Butler-hosts provide guests with a personalised service and ensure they never dine in the same place twice.

Striking sunsets can be admired from the comfort of your sala or as you skim across the turquoise waters in a traditional dhow. For those keen to explore the island, scuba-diving, snorkelling and island hopping by speed-boat provide all the thrills that make for an unforgettable holiday. An enchanting island escape, Azura Benguerra Island in Mozambique is tailor-made for honeymoons.
