2. For the Adventure:

There are many ways to satisfy your craving for adventure when you’re on your honeymoon in Africa, and with SA Bucketlist as your travel agent, it’s all possible!

Among many of their packages, you can go shark cage diving in South Africa for a real adrenaline kick, or you can explore the remote and beautiful Kubu Island of Botswana by quad bike.

If it’s not the thrill you’re seeking, but the panoramic views and a physical challenge, then reach the heights of Table Mountain in Cape Town, one of the Seven Wonders of Nature. Or adventure along the world’s largest freshwater lake, Lake Malawi, in the warm heart of Africa. But the most popular, and perhaps the most incredible, is to take to the air by helicopter over the majestic Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

3. For the Wildlife:

There’s nowhere else in the world where you can have a true safari experience than in Africa. So make sure you do it right with SA Bucketlist, who will find local, reputable tours, wherever you are in the continent.

These expert travel agents will tailor a special safari to you, for the ultimate bucket list experience. Whether it’s South Africa’s iconic Kruger National Park, or the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, you’ll see the world’s most incredible animals in their national habitats. The same applies in the Serengeti National Park of Tanzania, Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park, Botswana’s Okavanga Delta and more. All you have to do is choose the location, bring a camera, and maybe you’ll spot all of the Big 5! Also get the chance to get close to flamingos, herds of buffalo, gazelles, crocodiles, and over 400 species of birds.

As well as safari and game-watching tours, don’t miss the opportunity to go Gorilla Trekking in Uganda or Elephant Back Riding or Whale Watching in South Africa.

4. For the Luxury:

Remember what we said about the sheer variety of activities on offer in Africa? Well imagine going from an adventurous safari walk and game-watching to a 5* star retreat to spend the night lapping up luxurious comfort. That’s what makes travelling through Africa with SA Bucketlist the perfect honeymoon option filled with both luxury and adventure.

After an elephant encounter in the Kapama Game Reserve in South Africa, relax in the luxury lodge of Camp Jabulani where you’re honeymoon package will include a private candle-lit dinner and your suite will have an exclusive deck from where you can take in the spectacular views.

Other luxuries across the continent include Sanctuary Baines Camp in Botswana, and Grootbos Spa in South Africa. Not to mention the renowned hotels and golf resorts of Mauritius or the Seychelles, such as Constance Hotels, where their impeccable service and optimum luxury combines with the beauty of the alluring coastlines and crystal waters of the Indian Ocean.

5. For the Romance:

Due to all of the above reasons, you are set to have the most romantic honeymoon possible when you venture to Africa. It doesn’t matter if you’re exploring cities, game reserves or white sandy beaches: if you’re completing your bucket list together and seeing unforgettable sites, then it’s romantic.

Picture yourselves, warmed by the sea breeze and the sun-kissing rays on a secluded beach in the exotic Mauritius or Seychelles, after spending the morning snorkelling and trying the most heavenly, local food. Imagine candle-lit dinners in the depths of the forest, right on the beach or above the city skylines.

Romance comes in many forms, but with SA Bucketlist, it’s set to be exciting, thrilling, beautiful, exclusive and luxurious.
