Smouldering sunsets provide endless opportunities for champagne toasts and for the more adventurous honeymooners there's canoe trips, helicopter flips, white water rafting and bungee jumping.
This wonderful Zimbabwe honeymoon itinerary begins in sensational style with a visit to one of the Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls, and continues in a similarly impressive vein, exposing intrepid travellers to the best of Zimbabwe's multitude of offerings. Marvel at huge herds of elephants in Hwange National Park, canoe down the Zambezi admiring the beautiful buck, elegant water birds and ever present elephants as life passes idly by on the banks.
Round off your Zimbabwe honeymoon with an indulgent safari in Mana Pools National Park where game drives and walks on dry land compliment your water experiences, and where the elephants are so comfortable in camp they will make you wonder who is watching whom.
