Looking for the best African safari destination for your wedding or honeymoon? Here are the top three best places to get married in Africa for the perfect romantic safari getaway. June remains one of the most popular times for weddings, and it happens to coincide with one of the very best times to go on safari in Africa. Custom safaris, which can be arranged around the date of your choosing, make tying a safari to your wedding or honeymoon one of the easiest parts of tying the knot!

Our three preferred safari destinations offer just the right amount of pampering, alone time, and shared discoveries to start building a lifetime of memories. Decide which of the three suits your interests, and leave the details to us, and we will design an unforgettable wedding safari for you.

Rich and Sarah Moriarity Wedding at Chiawa Camp, Zambia, Southern Africa

1. Exchange Your Vows on the Zambezi River

Chiawa Camp, Lower Zambezi, Zambia

Serenely set on the banks of the Zambezi River, under a grove of evergreen Mahogany trees, Chiawa Camp is a magical place to spot elephants, herds of buffalo, prides of lions, leopards, hyenas, jackals, hippos, crocodile, zebra, and many more in one of Africa’s best protected wildlife sanctuaries. The private, pristine setting makes it a perfect place for weddings and honeymoons.


A minister and choir can be arranged, with the ceremony conducted on a pontoon boat on the Zambezi River, or at a lagoon overlooking the river. All arrangements from food to flowers are handled by the staff for the guests so the bride and groom can relax and enjoy an unforgettable day.


2. All the Romance of a Classic Safari

Kirkmans Kamp, Kruger Southern, South Africa

Historic and charming Kirkman’s Kamp lets you integrate your romance with the romance of Africa, whether you choose to hold your wedding on-site, or design a dream honeymoon with the perfect balance of adventure and luxury. 18 charming suites overlook the bushveld and beautiful lawns surround the lodge and swimming pool, with spectacular views of the unspoiled landscape surrounding the Sand River.


The highly attentive staff – including your own butler – offer impeccable and gracious service with details like a bath and champagne awaiting after a day spent on safari spotting the big five, and other rare animals, such as the cheetah and hyena.


3. A Tropical Paradise Getaway

Azura Benguerra, Bazaruto, Mozambique

If your dream wedding or honeymoon in Africa wouldn’t be complete without a beach experience, this luxury boutique resort offers amazing vistas of blue Indian Ocean waters, and access to pristine offshore reefs home to coral gardens and fascinating marine life.


The sixteen hand-built villas are just steps from the beach, but designed with seclusion in mind, with private pools and an attentive butler on hand. Take your vows on white sandy beaches with the warm Indian Ocean as a backdrop, and then relax on palm-fringed shores, snorkel or explore the beach on horseback. When you’re ready to pick up the pace, a safari in the Serengeti can be easily added to your time in Mozambique.
