The Six Best Honeymoon Destinations

The Six Best Honeymoon Destinations

Trying to decide where to go on your honeymoon? These six destinations are all very popular.


Hawaii is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and it is also the location of a number of popular resorts. Needless to say, there are a lot of people that opt to come here for their honeymoon.

Hawaii is in the United States, which means that honeymooners won’t have to worry about having an up-to-date passport before they travel. It also has a lot of sights to see. This is a wonderful place for people that want to soak up some sun, but it’s also a great destination for people that are passionate about wildlife or history.


Mexico has warm weather year-round, which makes it a great destination in the winter. Of course, people also choose to visit Mexico because the country has a lot of affordable resorts. If the budget for your honeymoon is tight, you’ll find that you can really expand your options if you go to Mexico.

You don’t have to be wealthy to have a lovely honeymoon. A lot of travelers are able to have stunning vacations in this country without spending much at all. Mexico is a fairly large country, and different parts of Mexico can offer a very different experience.


This country is known for its food and its music, but it’s also a beautiful place to be. If you look at photos from honeymoons in Jamaica, you’ll be able to see exactly why so many couples decide to go here.

This is a romantic country that is perfect for photos. It’s a very popular tourist destination, and there are all kinds of resorts in the area. In fact, there are even some resorts that are only for couples. If you’re looking for a stunning place to get away from it all, why not try this country?


There are so many countries in Europe, and many of these countries border each other. Because of this, travelers that honeymoon in Europe will have the opportunity to visit a number of places on a single trip. If you go to Europe, you can spend time in France, Spain, Italy, and plenty of other countries.

Europe is beautiful, and it’s filled with historical sights. If you’re looking for a honeymoon option that won’t require you to lounge on a beach, this might be the place that you want to travel to.


Like Europe, Asia is fairly large. However, most of the people that do opt to visit Asia wind up limiting themselves to one specific country. You could honeymoon in Thailand, or you could spend all of your time in Japan. You could even take a honeymoon in Singapore.

A lot of Asian countries are known for their food. If you intend to indulge yourself while you’re away, then you’ll love eating at some of the restaurants here. You’ll also want to try street food. A lot of this food is extremely affordable, but the quality of the food is sky high!


Another option for a domestic honeymoon is to visit California. California is home to both Disneyland and Hollywood, which are both popular with tourists. It’s also a warm state, which is why a lot of people that live in colder climates choose to come here. Taking a vacation in California usually isn’t very expensive, and it’s a nice place to be throughout the year.

If you don’t know where you would like to go on your honeymoon, consider the options above. Every one of these destinations has a lot to offer.

Planning Your First Safari

Planning Your First Safari

f there is one certainty in life it is the fact that any nature lover when planning a bucket list of activities will have at least one entry that outlines a trip to Africa – and it almost another certainty that the trip that will be planned will include a Safari experience.The attraction of an African Safari are not difficult to fathom. It is one of the last great bastions of unspoiled wildlife on the planet. It boasts exceptional national parks and private game reserves which will cater to just about every taste and wallet. However, prior to stepping onto the plane for the Mother Continent – what planning should the aspirant Safari goer undertake?

Here are some great hints that will allow those who are setting off on the adventure of a lifetime to ensure that they will get the most out of the experience.

You may want to see the sun set over the Savannah or dine under the African stars – but you are going to select what sort of Safari adventure suits your pocket. You can cut down on those costs by building your own itinerary and cherry picking just what you want to experience. However, if you want to enjoy the safari in the lap of luxury it is going to cost you a pretty penny – private game lodges are marketed to the wealthy – and most of them charge in dollars. That said there are plenty of national parks that offer great camping facilities – and still give you the opportunity to really experience the safari feeling. Kruger National Park is one example – and it is truly one of the best national parks in Africa.

Work out your priorities. If you want to see the Big Five (elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, and rhino) then the best places for the first timer would include either South Africa or Kenya – both renowned for the quality of the safari experiences that they offer. Tanzania and Zambia should also be on your radar. if you have cash to burn them Botswana and it’s many upmarket lodges is also worth a look.

When should you visit? That’s a matter of personal preference. each season has its pros and cons. The dry season falls roughly between May and September – but it is variable by country. The dry season is great to spot animals as the bush is less sparse and many game parks have man made watering holes that attract a variety of game. The wet season which falls (again roughly) between October and February offers lush bush and most closely resembles the picture that many have of the African bush land of Hollywood fame.

Once again the style of safari experience that the visitor wishes to enjoy is an important part of just how those memories will be made. Private game reserves offer a more intimate (sometimes off road) experience which offers experienced guides and a close up view of the animals that you will be hoping to see. there are also horse riding options and walking Safaris. There is also the very attractive option of ‘glamping’ in countries such as Botswana – but that can be pricey. The alternative is to camp out and make use of a private or hire car and explore the African veldt on well maintained roads in places such as the Kruger National Park

Let’s get the pesky malaria worry out of the way. yes there are areas in sub-Saharan Africa where Malaria is common – but there are also great game parks that are Malaria free. Phinda in KwaZulu Natal South Africa is only one example.

What ever you choose your first African Safari will be one that will remain fresh in your memory forever – so take some time to plan and make the most of your trip to the Mother Continent.
