East Africa is the perfect choice for the ultimate romantic holiday. Whether you’re celebrating a honeymoon or anniversary, or simply the joy of spending quality time together, Asilia’s camps offer idyllic settings, elegant simplicity and serious comfort.
Our lodges and camps are small and exclusive, with camp staff available to customise the experience to your needs, making it a safari holiday for you and your loved one that you’ll never forget.
Asilia’s camp managers and staff pride themselves on going the extra mile with special touches to add even more romance to your holiday. We offer various romantic options, including honeymoon packages, private lantern-lit dinners and hot-air balloon rides. If booking a safari for a special occasion like a honeymoon, anniversary or proposal, be sure to tell us about it beforehand, so we can ensure the experience is extra special. We strive to give you a truly authentic and personal experience where you’ll feel as though you have the entire place to yourself.
For many people, a safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, making it a unique and incredibly special choice for a honeymoon. With our smaller camp sizes and personal service, every one of Asilia’s camps and lodges offers the chance to escape in romantic solitude. All you and your loved one needs to do is just show up and we’ll take care of the rest. Our secluded and deeply comfortable tented suites let you get away from it all: sink into a day bed or sofa on your own private veranda to while away the midday heat and let the animals of Africa come to you.
Come morning, don’t miss the chance to take a hot-air balloon trip to float above the vast, game-rich plains and enjoying a beautiful sunrise, followed by a champagne breakfast in the heart of the bush. And as the sun sets, enjoy an evening of private sundowners in a secluded location, followed by a candlelit dinner under the African night sky.
A private game viewing vehicle with your own dedicated guide will allow you to safari at your own pace. It is a little luxury that gives you maximum special time together as you discover Africa’s hidden gems and secret spaces. You may also want to ensure your itinerary includes one of our camps that offer a swimming pool and spa: Namiri Plains, Jabali Ridge or Sayari Camp.
Bush and Beach Combination
For the best of both worlds, choose a romantic Bush and Beach package. For example, choose award-winning Sayari Camp in Tanzania for an unbeatable safari experience and follow it up with some time at Matemwe Retreat, a tropical beach paradise on Zanzibar Island.
Sayari is the pick of the Serengeti, renowned for its extraordinary wildlife sightings and supreme comfort. Set on the unspoilt plains of the Northern Serengeti close to the famous Lamai Wedge, Sayari has easy access to the Mara River for astounding viewing of the Great Migration as well as close-up encounters with incredible wildlife.
After a day of extraordinary game viewing, treat yourself to a session in the spa, relax in your elegant suite or enjoy the dramatic views from the rim-flow swimming pool. Intimate, contemporary and elegant, it is no surprise that Sayari Camp is regularly voted one of the top safari escapes on the planet. And when it’s time to say goodbye to the bush, jet off to Matemwe for some tropical beach bliss.
Zanzibar is the perfect destination for post-safari relaxation and Matemwe Retreat offers total privacy and personalised service in an exclusive-use villa complete with private plunge pool. After long, lazy beach days or a day of water sports, enjoy romantic sundowners at home just metres from the clear tropical waters. In the evening under the stars, candle-lit dinners cooked by your private chef offer new levels of luxury and romance.
