Africa; the most romantic continent in the world. The ultimate honeymoon destination. Here at Africa Travel, we have chosen five villas, which we think are perfect for a luxury honeymoon in Africa. One of the best reasons to stay in a villa is that you’ll have privacy. Villas are mostly properties that have their own private land and space and are located to take advantage of the best views. For a couple looking to get away from crowds this is the ideal solution as you’ll get to retreat into your own personal space after enjoying the day out sightseeing or enjoying activities. Safari villas also include a private vehicle further allowing for privacy while out game viewing.
Romantic and remote, this uber-luxury private island resort has played host to the mega-rich, royalty and rock stars since opening its doors in 2003. Accommodation at North Island consists of 11 huge two-bedroom villas, each with their own stretch of beach, swimming pool and spacious sleeping, relaxing and bathing areas. All of the villas also feature their very own butler and buggy to get around the island. As expected, all of this luxury and privacy does not come cheap, however if you are looking for a once in a lifetime honeymoon experience, North Island should definitely be at the top of your list.
Located in the foothills of the breath-taking Cederberg Mountains, Bushmans Kloof is the ultimate wilderness experience to escape, rest, heal and be at one with nature, with wide open plains, mystical rock formations, crystal clear waterfalls and an abundance of flora and fauna. A wide variety of accommodation options are available at this award winning property, however for real luxury and privacy, we recommend booking into Koro Lodge, a farmhouse, nestled in the reserve, that has been completely renovated and transformed into a spectacular intimate villa, surrounded by open vistas of wilderness and wildlife, combining ultimate luxury with nature. As well as a private infinity pool, the villa also comes with its own private chef and guide
Azura Benguerra is one of Mozambique's premier luxury resorts. Set on its own private island, there are just 20 villas in total, each exuding the charm of Mozambique and the colours of the island, sea and sky. Each villa is just footsteps from the beach, yet designed with seclusion in mind. A haven of rest and relaxation, where you can feel at one with the environment. A fusion of indoor and outdoor space where time becomes your own. For the ultimate luxury experience, we recommend booking the three bedroom presidential villa, which is 150m down the beach from main lodge and comes with its own staff, an infinity pool and glorious views across the ocean.
Perched dramatically atop a kopje, Elsa's Kopje is the site from where Elsa the lioness from ‘Born Free’ was released into the wild. Couples in love can stay in the wonderfully secluded honeymoon suite, however for the ultimate romantic experience, we recommend booking Elsa’s Private House, a two-bedroom hideaway set apart from the rest of the camp with its own private swimming pool and garden that have extraordinary views of Meru National Park. Guests staying at the house have the choice of eating in the privacy of the house or in the main dining area of the lodge.
Visiting the Serengeti does not have to be an under canvas experience and at the Four Seasons Safari Lodge one can enjoy the excellent game viewing in the area and then return to the luxuries and modern comforts at the lodge. There are a wide variety of accommodation options available, however, for the ultimate luxury honeymoon experience, we recommend booking the presidential villa, which features 24-hour butler service and your very own private chef and gym and an infinity pool that overlooks an active watering hole. All presidential villa guests also enjoy two complimentary spa treatments as part of their stay, either at the all-suite spa or in the comfort of their villa.
