When Is The Best Time To Go On A Safari Honeymoon?

Choosing the best time of year for a safari honeymoon is essential as it can significantly impact your experience. The season can affect the abundance and diversity of wildlife, weather conditions, and accessibility during your trip. Planning ahead and selecting the right time to travel can lead to a more fulfilling, romantic, and unforgettable honeymoon adventure. To make the most of your trip, consider traveling during the dry season, typically from June to October. This period is known for its excellent wildlife sightings and dry landscapes, creating the perfect backdrop for a romantic safari experience. You and your loved one can have a higher chance of spotting the Big Five - lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, and rhino - as they roam through the savannahs. However, peak season also means higher prices and more crowds, which may not be ideal for a honeymoon. For a more intimate and secluded experience, consider traveling during the shoulder seasons of June and October. Wildlife sightings are still excellent, and the weather is typically pleasant, with fewer crowds and more affordable rates. Remember to plan with an expert and book in advance to secure the best honeymoon accommodation at the best price.

For Rangers Top Tips:

Firstly, shoulder seasons fall between the peak and low seasons, June and October. Often, these months are less crowded with better chance of good weather, less expensive than peak season and wildlife sighting opportunities are still excellent (especially in October).

Secondly, plan with an expert and book in advance to secure the best honeymoon safari accommodation, and best honeymoon safari special offers.

How Much Does A Safari Honeymoon Cost?

The cost of a safari honeymoon can vary depending on the destination, length of stay, level of accommodation, and activities included. Generally, a luxury safari honeymoon can range from £5,000 / $6,250 to £15,000 / $18,500 per person for a 7-10 day trip, with high-end options exceeding £20,000 / $25,000 per person.

While the cost of a safari honeymoon may seem comparatively high, it is important to keep in mind that it probably includes many inclusions such as accommodation, meals, drinks, activities, and transportation. Additionally, the unique and unforgettable experiences that a safari honeymoon provides make it a worthwhile investment.

Is It Safe To Go On Safari For My Honeymoon?

Yes, safaris are generally safe for honeymooners as long as they take certain precautions. It's important to choose a reputable tour operator with experience in planning romantic getaways and a trusted network in destination. When travelling, it's important to follow the rules and guidelines provided by the guides and to exercise common sense when encountering wildlife. For example, it's recommended to keep a safe distance from animals, not to approach them or try to touch them, and to stay inside the safari vehicle at all times. Additionally, honeymooners should be aware of the risks associated with malaria, which is prevalent in many safari destinations. It's important to consult with a healthcare professional before your trip to obtain appropriate prophylactic medication and other preventative measures to protect against malaria.
