Our ‘not to be missed’ recommendations for your romantic holiday

Elegant camps

Africa is a coveted honeymoon destination, and those in the know report that this unique destination delivers all one wants – and more – for a romantic celebration.

It’s something about the endless quiet, the remoteness, or perhaps the sense that a wild encounter is imminent, that creates an unforgettable atmosphere in the bush.

Adventure or leisure

Specially tailored for adventure or leisure: the choice is yours. Experience night drives, walking safaris, remote hiking and visit an authentic local Maasai village.

Or wind down in the tranquillity of an unspoilt beach destination; endless white sandy beaches, turquoise waters and a warm breeze drifting off the Indian Ocean. We searched far and wide to discover the most exquisite island getaways for you!

Intimate experiences

We welcome you to spoil yourself with decadent lodgings, or enjoy an authentic pared down tented camp experience. Fly-camping, which is done away from main camp, and is light enough to move easily and strike quickly, but still retains the everyday luxuries that characterise the camps – hot showers, comfortable bedding and cold drinks served with home-cooked food. The sounds that you will hear in the night and the thrill of being 100 % immersed in the wild is a certainly the definition of a life changing experience. You dream up the experience, we will orchestrate it for you – and throw in a few very pleasant surprises along the way.

Enjoy a treat or two for your special occasion. It’s a surprise, though…!

Fly-camping at Roho ya Selous: sleep out in the wild at a small fly camp, under the stars.

Experiences for your romantic getaway

Offering you the unique opportunity of taking in some of the world’s most spectacular wildlife and scenery from the ultimate perspective: a thousand feet above.

Gently rising with the sun, you will travel as the wind takes you. It’s silent, other than the occasional sound of the burner, and the feeling of floating calmly over the wild Africa below is indescribable…


Escape the chaos to enjoy quiet time together in the wild, and enjoy a romantic bush evening with a private dining experience.


Sleepouts – aka starbeds – are a wonderful way to sleep under the stars and enjoy the pure tranquility and raw excitement of the bush. Canvas tents made of heavy-duty mosquito mesh ensure that you are close to nature, but not too close to bugs.

It is a perfect complement to a longer stay at a high-end camp. The thrill of being out in the bush, so close to nature, with only a few staff members around, is the pinnacle of many guests’ safaris.


Sail on an authentic dhow in Mozambique for one week and camp on pristine remote islands. Ideal for adventurous travellers who want to combine luxury and camping. Under the expert leadership of a pro guide and a local crew, explore a coastline fringed by tropical islands.

The crew conjures up fresh seafood and traditional cuisine over an open fire under island stars, leaving you free to soak up this once-in-a-lifetime Mozambican adventure. This is adventure safari travel at its best!
