For their regal honeymoon, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are rumored to be heading to the Hoanib Valley Camp in Namibia for some much-needed downtime after the royal wedding, but that’s hardly the only breathtakingly beautiful safari spot that Africa has to offer. According to the world’s leading African travel experts, these are most magical and luxurious royal-ready camps for an unforgettable African honeymoon.
Virunga Lodge, Rwanda
Praveen Moman is the Founder and CEO of Volcanoes Safaris, a leading luxury lodge company at the forefront of reviving gorilla and chimpanzee tourism in Uganda and Rwanda since 1997. For newlyweds looking for adventure, he also recommends Rwanda: “Rwanda’s natural landscape is truly breathtaking, while the country’s natural wildlife including the endangered mountain gorilla, makes it a drawcard to tourists from around the globe. The magnificent Virunga Lodge offers a romantic and luxurious getaway for honeymooners,” says Moman. “Perched high on a ridge with stunning views of the Virunga Volcanoes and the Musanze valley to the west and Lake Bulera and Ruhondo to the east…it offers the finest views in Africa.” And royal couples don’t have to worry about the peeping eyes of the paparazzi: “Each of the ten luxurious bandas has their own terrace from which couples can watch the sunrise or sunset over the dramatic landscape of mountains and lakes, and enjoy each other’s company in total privacy.”
