What makes a babymoon safari in Africa so special?

Going on a babymoon is not only an opportunity to add holiday snaps to another photo album. It also signifies a new chapter in your life and has significant long-term relationship benefits. Whether you're having your first, second, or third child – those few months before the due date can be an anxious time for you and your significant other. Not only can travelling to a romantic destination be good for the soul and ease some of the nervous excitement, but it's also sure to bring you and your partner closer together, too! 

Southern Africa is positively brimming with idyllic locations offering comforts that expectant parents will treasure. Travelling in the second trimester is a perfectly convenient and safe time to travel, with morning sickness eased, and the baby bump not quite having reached its full robust potential. A babymoon safari in Africa is possibly the best way to celebrate this next big milestone in your lives! We can create a babymoon holiday in Africa featuring just the right mix of travel, tranquillity, and relaxation for couples holidaying during this incredibly precious time.

Popular babymoon destinations in Africa

Indian Ocean Islands

Atolls and archipelagos abound in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, with paradises such as Seychelles, Mauritius, and Zanzibar providing exquisite beachfront retreats for couples. The best babymoon destinations in Africa offer romance and tranquillity, and what better way to do that than on an island, breathing in the fresh salty sea air with your toes in the sand. Overhanging palm trees provide magnificent shade while couples relax, regroup, and sip on non-alcoholic cocktails. Your babymoon in the Seychelles or other tropical islands is the perfect opportunity to relax before your little one arrives.

Garden Route

If you prefer sticking within close proximity to civilisation, then the much-loved South African Garden Route is one of the best babymoon destinations and offers this in spades. Couples can relax in the beach town or forest hideaways with peace of mind that domestic airports, cities, and all amenities are just a short drive away. This part of the world is striking in its picturesque landscape and diverse kilometres of coastline. Lush indigenous forests, mountainous valleys, and calming beachfront guest houses are easy to find and even easier to settle into. As babymoon destinations in Africa go, the Garden Route is a winner. 

Cape Winelands 

While the Cape Winelands won’t necessarily attract babymooners for its world-class wine industry, it will spark interest owing to its quaint country-feel cottages, enchanting landscape, and reputation as the gastronomical capital of the country. As one of the best babymoon destinations due to its tranquil setting and plenty of opportunities to indulge, the Cape Winelands is one of our favourite babymoon destinations in Africa to recommend to guests. So, for the last holiday, before booking a table for two becomes booking a table for three, explore the Cape Winelands and its enchanting landscape, array of delightfully romantic accommodation options, and its vast selection of world-class restaurants. 

Cape Town

When it comes to the best babymoon destinations in Africa, Cape Town is at the top of the list. In Cape Town, there's romance and intrigue around every corner and so much to do within easy reach. Here you can marvel at the city and the vast Atlantic Ocean from the famous flat-topped Table Mountain, enjoy musical concerts in lush botanical gardens, peruse the vibrant markets and Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and indulge your inner foodie. When considering where to stay in Cape Town, there are some places that we'd immediately suggest as the best babymoon destinations. Camissa House Luxury Boutique Hotel is located on the slopes of Table Mountain with exquisite views and is close to the city hub. Accommodating only 16 guests at a time, you can also rest assured that you have the hands-on, personalised service and privacy your heart could desire. On the other hand, The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa is equally romantic and located in the high-end Camps Bay, offering some of the best views and has an excellent on-site spa to pamper you.
