Zambia is never going to be a gentle or mainstream honeymoon destination.
However, if you are looking for a safari experience which is a little adventurous, wild and exclusive, then the country does offer amazing game viewing, varied activities, intimate camps and lodges, stunning scenery, warm hospitality and very tranquil surroundings.
For the more active, Zambia is arguably the best African country to consider, with wonderful walking and canoeing trails available. Victoria Falls is an amazing sight and the region offers a variety of experiences beyond just viewing the falls, including helicopter or micro-light flights, lunches on Livingstone Island, Zambezi boat cruises and authentic village visits. Between them, you’ll certainly not be short of memorable honeymoon highlights.
Although Zambia is land-locked, building in some relaxation time, either before or after a safari, can easily be achieved. Livingstone and the Upper Zambezi, close to Victoria Falls, is the perfect destination to consider. Here you can relax, unwind, and watch the Zambezi slip by just as easily as doing many of the activities and excursions mentioned above. However, if you really do wish to include a ‘beach holiday’, the closest beach destination is Lake Malawi (in neighbouring Malawi) which offers lovely beaches, great swimming and snorkelling, and a relaxed and friendly African ‘vibe’.
It is possible and relatively easy to get married in Zambia. Whilst we can arrange wonderful weddings in the bush, it is the Upper Zambezi and Victoria Falls region which is most popular for Zambia weddings. Not only are the iconic Victoria Falls a potentially amazing back drop, but the accessibility of the region is crucial in making all those little details that much easier to arrange.
