Honey, Let's Honeymoon in Africa

We know that when you go big, you like to go BIG (wink, wink). Well, what is bigger, bolder and better than Mother Africa? If you are floating off to your honeymoon with stars in your eyes, only the best of the best will do. We're not talking Mercedez, honey. We're talking about the Rolls Royce of destinations here! Say hello to the caviar of travelling: Africa.

Everyone has the ideal honeymoon in mind. We've all dreamt about it since we thought we were straight! But perhaps your significant other has a different honeymoon in mind? Well, we challenge you to find something Africa can't deliver!

Bronzing with a cocktail in hand on a tropical island? Check. Gorilla trekking in rainforests? Check. Luxury Big 5 safari? Check. Sipping and swirling fine wines in the vineyards? Check. Dining on some of the best dishes in the world? Check. Or perhaps you want adrenaline-fueled activities like bungee jumping off the largest waterfall? Again, check. As we said, Africa has many sides to her. And she'll undoubtedly deliver the gay honeymoon of your wildest dreams.

Why Should I Spend My Honeymoon in Africa?

The easier question to answer would be: why not? Africa is the promised land. She is not vanilla like some other destination (ahem, same scenery every day? No, thanks!). She surprises you with her diverse landscapes, rainbow people, mind-boggling nature, and heart-stopping wildlife. Safari honeymoon? Tick. Island honeymoon? Tick. Beach honeymoon? Tick. City honeymoon. Tick. Forest honeymoon? Tick. We can go on forever, but you get the idea!

What Are the Best Honeymoon Experiences in Africa?

It's almost impossible to pick! Safari is a favourite (of course) - whether you do so in Kruger National Park, Botswana, or go for the full East African safari in Tanzania or Kenya. So is lazing on an island, clinking glasses in the Cape Winelands, exploring the Gay Capital Cape Town's eclectic city life, taking the ultimate road trip down the Garden Route... (sigh) the possibilities are endless.

What Are The Best Gay-Friendly Indian Ocean Islands for a Honeymoon?

Seychelles is great because homosexuality is legal, so you can be as lovey-dovey as you want. The Maldives offer respite away from the crowds on floating bungalows where tourists' law seems to be a law of its own. In Mauritius, you can expect a postcard-perfect honeymoon. Or, if you want something a bit more cultural, venture out to Africa's hidden gem, Mozambique.

Should I Choose Bush or Beach for My African Honeymoon?

Well, now...we simply cannot make that choice for you! It all depends on what tickles your fancy. What sounds more romantic? Nothing but the African wild's calls as your company as you slumber in a luxury treehouse under the star-studded sky? Or do you prefer jumping into the warm Indian Ocean straight from your bed on a floating bungalow in the Maldives? Take your pick - or don't and combine both experiences in the most romantic honeymoon on earth.
