Newlyweds are often on the search for relaxing, luxury holidays with an adventurous twist. Whether it’s a belated honeymoon, romantic holiday or a second honeymoon; newlyweds won’t be disappointed with our choice of 3 luxury Kruger safari lodges.
Londolozi Is located in a premier private Game Reserve, a Reserve home to abundant leopard activity. The Sabi Sand is a big five region, and apart from the much-documented leopard sightings, the varied landscape and position on the banks of the Sand River ensure the ideal habitat for the big five.
Londolozi is a first-choice for international visitors and offers a wide variety of accommodation options for those seeking the pinnacle of safari luxury.
Londolozi is split into 5 camps, which are: Pioneer Camp, Varty Camp, Granite Suites, Founders Camp and Tree Camp. Tree Camp and Private Granite Suites don’t allow children, while Pioneer Camp is the go-between; catering both couples and families. The larger camps are Varty and Founders; just perfect for big groups.
There is a wellness Centre, boutique and gourmet cuisine on offer at Londolozi. All aspects of a wild safari that add to the overall experience. As newlyweds, we encourage a couples massage – you won’t be disappointed with the exquisite massage and pristine bushveld vistas. Londolozi really is a true sanctuary of elegance!
Romantic aspect: the honeymoon safari vehicle, a modified game viewer with a “couch for two” is a completely unique addition to a romantic safari experience. The bush dinners under the light of the moon. We recommend the Tree Camp or Granite for the ultimate romantic safari experience.
Lion Sands Private Game Reserve is also located in the heart of the Big five Sabi Sand and offers guest an unsurpassed sense of luxury. Game drives and bush walks are available at the various lodges, along with magical sundowners and gourmet dinners.
For newlyweds, we recommend the iconic River Lodge, where there’s even a “memory lab” which is a place to print your safari in pics. There’s a safari bar and lounge, a huge deck overlooking the riverbed and a dining area under the canopy of trees. In short, It’s a sophisticated lodge with hints of Africa from centuries past.
Another accommodation option is the elegant and spectacular Ivory Lodge, a contemporary lodge built from natural materials. It’s an intimate lodge, and each guest has their own villa complete with a private deck, plunge pool, fireplace and sweeping views.
Newlyweds will love the treehouse aspect, a sleep-out option in the midst of the wild. A place where loved-up couples can express their love while surrounded by the soft-light from the lanterns, the whoop of the hyenas, and the star-spangled night sky. The saw of a leopard’s call and guttural roars from lions permeate the air, and staying in the treehouse means the sound is completely amplified.
Romantic aspect: The Treehouses, including Chalkley Treehouse and Kingston Treehouse (Sabi Sand), and Tinyeleti Treehouse (Kruger National Park) are booked in conjunction with your accommodation. The private pools, fireplaces and decks of your private villa style accommodation offer a complete sense of elite luxury.
The team at Tanda Tula will make you feel like you are the only couple in the world. The staff at this luxury lodge in the midst of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve certainly know how to add the finishing touches to your safari experience. Tanda Tula’s warmth, location, decor and success with spotting with big five make it a winning combination for newlyweds.
This East African styled luxury tented camp sits on the edge of the Nhlaralumi Riverbed, a perfect place for predators to hide-out and stalk prey. There are 12 secluded tents, all with sweeping views of the riverbed. For our die-hard romantics, there is the star-bed experience, bush dining and a massive viewing deck in the main area.
Romantic aspect: Tanda Tula as a whole! Each luxurious tent features its own en-suite bathroom, Victorian bathtub, outdoor shower and a spacious deck giving rise to panoramic bushveld views. The star bed gives romantics the opportunity to sleep out under the stars on a raised platform, kitted out with furniture and four-poster bed.
