Africa has it all...

Looking for a grand gesture with a difference? Looking for that big wow just to treat your special someone? Africa has it all and more. You of course have the usual suspects, the romantic turndowns, private candlelight dinners, all in abundance and very well done they are too, but as you’d expect, Africa does it with bells on, so hold on to your heart and let’s go!!

For the ultimate romantic night how about a night under the stars? Nothing but you, your loved one, a picnic basket brimming with bubbles and delights of your choice, on a platform raised above the African bush and a blanket of the amazing African stars above you. Lodges across Africa have such ‘sleepouts’ on offer and for the winter months hot water bottles to keep you snug. Let us know if you’d like this experience and we’ll work out how best to build it in.

There are romantic beach destinations a plenty but the following are an example of some with just that little something, well big something actually, that just gives you that bit extra – Miavana, a brand new island sanctuary off the coast of Madagascar describes itself as ‘castaway luxury’ with stylish villas that surpass the usual and pioneering blue safaris to complete the experience.

North Island in the Seychelles – a intimate exclusive experience with stunning accommodation and the rules are simple – there are no rules…….

Now bear with us on the next one, it may seem crazy to even consider this but as there is little time difference and a lot of wow to be had, a ‘weekend’ to Africa can actually work!! We’re thinking Cape Town and all it has to offer, world class hotels, the mountain, the food, the wine and some excellent sights to see, it’s not recognised as one of the top 10 cities to visit for nothing. Victoria Falls is on everyone’s ‘to do’ list and properties like Royal Chundu have chances to wow aplenty – helicopter flips, canoeing on the Zambezi, outside baths, gorgeous food and oh not forgetting the amazing Victoria Falls themselves, a fabulous backdrop.

If the above is perhaps too run of the mill, we have plenty of other suggestions tucked up our sleeves. If you fancy replaying that moment when Robert Redford and Meryl Streep were laid on top of that hill overlooking the Kenya plains below, we have the contacts. A proposal on a balloon flight while you bob over the Serengeti, not a problem. Your very own private guided tour through Botswana with a chance to treat the other half to their own Botswana diamond at the end – well if it was enough to wow a certain future Princess, then why not!!
