SAFARI COSTS 2023 / 2024


You've already made a great decision in deciding on an Africa Honeymoon for 2023 / 2024, but with so many destinations, prices, seasons, and accommodation options how do you choose a package that fits your budget? 

This page will help you narrow the field and give you an idea of the costs involved for your honeymoon, once done, contact us and let's custom design the perfect package for you. 

Prices by Star Rating

The biggest factor affecting African honeymoon costs is the star rating and with four-star, five-star and now five-star premier the price of your Africa honeymoon package can vary greatly. It's worth noting that you don't want anything under 4-star accommodation as the experience can be less than romantic... 

All prices below are per person sharing.


Four Star

7 Nights from $5,297 pps

It's worth noting that good four-star accommodation in Africa is more often than not superior to European or American Four Star accommodation, and many great packages exist. 

The biggest difference perhaps is what's included in your stay, as for the most part four-star only includes bed and breakfast whilst a five-star African honeymoon package is typically fully inclusive of meals and local drinks.
Prices in Cape Town will be lower than prices in the bush for example, which brings down the overall cost of your Africa honeymoon.


Five Star

7 Nights from $6,757 pps

The Five Star properties we work with are the best in their class and are reviewed frequently by our staff to ensure high standards of customer services, accommodation, cuisine and overall experience.

These properties are typically all-inclusive of meals and local drinks with 2 private daily game drives as part of the package cost.

Additionally, five-star properties more often than not enjoy premier locations and access to local wildlife, making the added expense worth it if you can upgrade your honeymoon budget.

Perhaps friends and family can chip into your wedding registry :)


Five Star Premier

7 Nights from $8,897 pps

There are only ten hotels and lodges in Africa to be awarded the prestigious five-star premier status.

These properties are the exceptional gems that go way beyond the traditional levels of service and excellence to ensure your Africa honeymoon is the best it can be.

These hotels and lodges offer the best of everything from accommodation to personal butler service, unique experiences, animal interaction and so much more you'll need to enquire for the full list of exceptional honeymoon exclusive experiences.


The seasons vary from destination to destination but for the most part the busiest time of the year and therefore the most expensive time to travel is from December to February.
This is also the hottest time of the year and not the best for game viewing - although it is still very good, it's just that the animals seek shelter during the day from the hot sun and the bush is denser due to higher rainfall.
On the flip side if you choose a destination with ample waterholes you can see incredible wildlife on your safari and reduce your Africa honeymoon costs by travelling this time of the year.
Typically, however, July to October is ideal for game viewing.


Hotels and Lodges love honeymooners and you can reduce the cost of your Africa honeymoon - or buddymoon - and get more value by taking advantage of these special offers.
For a list of current offers please contact us, as they come and go so fast there is little value in listing them on the website.
Alternatively, you can visit our Top 5 Honeymoon Packages Page for more information. 

A clever way to get more value and reduce your honeymoon costs, is to book through an operator with multiple properties and get free bed nights when you book 4 or more nights as a honeymoon couple. 


Honeymooners are the most loved of all travelers to Africa and specials like the bride pays only 50% of her accommodation fee can be sourced from select lodges and hotels, particularly in South Africa luxury properties.


Get more value from your Africa honeymoon with exclusive upgrades from standard rooms to superior or even suites to unique experiences like the tree houses at Lion Sands in the Greater Kruger Park in South Africa. 



The good news is you have many destinations to choose from for your African honeymoon. Here are the top 12 most popular in South & East Africa.
