Choose Nyala and nThambo for Your Honeymoon Safari

Organising your honeymoon involves significantly less admin compared to other aspects of the wedding process. During your honeymoon, the focus is solely on the two of you, without the need to consider seating arrangements, guest lists, or dietary preferences. To escape the madness of the build-up to the wedding, many loved-up couples choose the ultimate escape: a safari. This comes as no surprise given that the bushveld offers a sense of privacy, space and serenity. And of course, there’s mind-blowing sunsets and wildlife to observe. Everything about the safari experience embodies romance…without even trying.

If you’re looking for a Kruger honeymoon experience, we recommend Nyala Safari Lodge or nThambo Tree Camp. Each destination is located in a Big 5 reserve, has scenic views of the wilderness and is easily accessible. For the ultimate Kruger honeymoon, we recommend a combination stay of 3/4 nights at nThambo Tree Camp and 3/4 nights at Nyala Safari Lodge. nThambo will fulfill your romantic treehouse dreams and Nyala offers a comfortable sense of luxury in iconic thatched rondawels. With both destinations, you’ll get to experience safari accommodations that are an archetype of Kruger.
