Days 1, 2, 3
Enjoy your first three nights at Tanda Tula Safari Camp, one of the first East African styled, luxury tented safari camps in South Africa. Located in the heart of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park, Tanda Tula Safari Camp sits beneath enormous trees on the banks of the Nhlaralumi Riverbed, in the heart of Big Five country. By day take one of Tanda Tula's renowned walking safaris to track big game on foot, and by night relax in a beanbag on the porch of your canvas tent. Each of the 12 secluded and romantic tents offers a private view of whatever might happen to be strolling by your tent—like the incredible elephants pictured above.
Days 4, 5, 6
SLEEP BENEATH THE STARS
LION SANDS RIVER LODGE
You'll spend the next three nights of your romantic retreat tucked away beneath a thatched roof next to the Sabi River at Lion Sands River Lodge, located in the renowned Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, on the border of the world-famous Kruger National Park. While there's plenty of wildlife to see on daily safaris while staying at River Lodge, we wouldn't blame you if you decide not to leave your room! Suites have outdoor showers, inviting hammocks, and private wooden decks where you can spy for animals and take in the elements from the comfort of your own space. Spend two nights on the ground and one sleeping in the stars in one of the property's incredible treehouses, pictured above.
Days 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
ADVENTURE THE SHORES OF MOZAMBIQUE
AZURA BENGUERRA ISLAND
Your last stop is Benguerra Island, a little slice of paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean off the coast of Mozambique. Located in the Bazaruto Archipelago, the lodge is in a protected marine conservation area, meaning you will be in a prime location to stroll empty white-sand beaches and explore healthy coral reefs bursting with fish. Spend your final three days snorkelling, swimming, and otherwise enjoying the marine life and unbeatable location of this romantic retreat. Inland you'll find lush forest, wetlands, and freshwater lakes where you can hike and horseback ride. Kick back with an outdoor shower at your private cabana after a full day of adventure, and watch the sun go down over the edge of your plunge pool with a sundowner in hand—cheers!
