Historians dream of visiting the fifty ancient pyramids and royal tombs rising from the desert sands at Meroe -- Sudan's best-preserved pyramids, and one of Africa's best kept secrets. Adventure seekers leave the beaten path to explore secret networks of tunnels connecting the huts of the Chagga native people, who preserve their culture on the lower slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Connoisseurs of castles and towers dream of the ancient Duwisib Castle and of the eternal Sossusvlei sand dunes, the highest in the world.

At it's southern end, active travelers lower themselves into the Ai-Ais, hot springs for a soothing soak.
Geography/Environment
It is hard to do justice to Africa's geography in a paragraph, but expect a splendid safari near the equator in Kenya and Tanzania with the two tallest mountains on the continent, Mt. Kenya and Mt. Kilimanjaro, the later can be climbed by anyone in decent physical condition. In South Africa the winelands and coastline resemble northern California. South Africa also features deserts and bushveld landscape.
Activities
The top activity for Africa honeymooners is a photo safari in search of the abundant wildlife. Add in hiking, fishing, golf, hot air ballooning, fantastic dining, winery tours, whitewater rafting and you are sure to find honeymoon activities for anyone. Be sure to include at least a few nights in a tented safari camp to experience the sounds of the African bush.
Climate and Weather
Check local weather conditions for your honeymoon destination with your travel professional. It is important to be knowledgeable of the wet and dry seasons for a trip to Africa.
