1. Sundowners and Grand Safaris at Cottars, Maasai Mara (Kenya)
There is something incredibly magical about relaxing in your private marquee tent and marveling at the magnificent sunset views stretching over distant horizons. This experience is especially magical if those views are over the Maasai Mara and the vast Serengeti plains. Disturbed only by the tranquil sounds of wild Africa, this is where the bygone classic safari era of the twenties mixes with modern day comforts.
The mystique of the golden age of safari doesn’t end when you set foot outside camp. Cottars 1920’s Camp provides access to a very special part of Africa. The Maasai Mara – the famous seventh natural wonder of the world – is on its doorstep as well as the vast Serengeti National Park. These wildernesses are home to the largest concentration of terrestrial wildlife on earth. As you enjoy your sundowner G&T watching the sun descend behind the horizon with wildlife dotting the view, there is no place you’d rather be.

2. Lunar Rainbows and Stargazing at Tongabezi, Victoria Falls (Zambia)
Tongabezi, nestled on the banks of the ferocious Zambezi River, radiates romance and intimacy. When the day turns to dusk, and the starlit African night sky greets you with its presence, it provides the perfect setting for a private dinner beneath the stars. This is when the Tongabezi Honeymoon House turns into your very own African haven.
Possibly one of the most inimitable experiences in Africa is seeing the exquisite occurrence of a lunar rainbow at the Victoria Falls. Lunar rainbows occur for three days during full moon when the waterfall is at high water levels. The exceptional event takes place when raindrops reflect the light of the moon. Sharing this spectacular sight with a loved one is a moment that will remain imprinted in your mind for decades to come.

3. Wilderness Walks and Tree House Thrills at the Hide, Hwange National Park (Zimbabwe)
The deep African bushveld is probably not the first location to associate with romance. Yet, there is nothing quite as overwhelmingly beautiful as exploring wildest Africa with your special someone and forming a connection with not only the nature, but also each other. A bush walk through this vast wildlife playground does just that.
After a day filled with exciting sightings it is time to climb into the Hide’s secluded den of romance, the Dove’s Nest. Overlooking a tree-lined pan where the abundant Hwange wildlife wanders by, your intimate love nest provides the ideal setting for safari romance.
Enjoy sundowners on the deck followed by a private star-lit bush dinner, only accompanied by night sounds and bright, sparkly stars.
