A VOW, A DHOW
The honeymoon begins at Pumulani (“place of rest”), a beautiful mini beach “resort” comprising ten villas set above Lake Malawi, the lake that contains more different species of fish (mostly colorful cichlids) than any fresh water body in the world. Guests can sail on a dhow, snorkel, scuba dive, catch bennies on the beach, or swim in the pool. Other options: kayaking, waterskiing, wake boarding, fishing, fun tube rides and visits to a local village.
ALIVE TO THE BIG FIVE
The honeymoon continues at the amazing safari lodge, Mkulumadzi, artfully sited at the confluence of two rivers in Majete, a game-rife wildlife reserve that is home to the Big Five. Guests can enjoy day and night game drives, boating safaris on the Shire River to see a wide variety of birds, go on bush walks, hike, track black rhino, and take cultural tours.
BACK TO BASICS
On to the 3500-square-mile, game-rich South Luangwa Valley of Zambia and the luxurious, authentic tented camp Tena Tena, considered “…one of the best safari camps in the whole of Africa,” according to The Times of London. Lovebirds can go on morning and evening game drives, visit a Zambian village, take an all-day picnic drive to the salt pans and spoon above a lagoon.
