Honeymoon Destinations - Londolozi

While we are now in the middle of winter with the cold and snow setting in, I thought it would be a good time to share my favorite Honeymoon and destination wedding locations.  I know many couples are looking into Honeymoon options for their 2012 weddings and, given all of the amazing destinations, it's always good to hear about some really special places.

The first destination I want to share with you is an amazing private game reserve in South Africa.  Last May I had an opportunity to visit Londolozi and it was an experience I can never forget.  I know you might be thinking "A game reserve for a Honeymoon" but trust me, the excitement of the safari, combined with spectacular scenery, impeccable service and wonderful cuisine make it the perfect Honeymoon destination.  To top it off, the private villas add a special romantic touch and the staff goes out of their way to create the perfect setting.

The surprises and attention to detail are not just at the lodge but throughout the game reserve.  Just imagine our group's surprise one evening as we were coming back from Safari only to stop at a pond filled with hippos and be greeted by a bar stocked with a selection of our favorite vodkas.

Of course, no safari would be complete without the wildlife, and in that regard Londolozi does not dissappoint.  Situated in the Kruger National Park, Londolozi is known for its Rhinos, Leopards and Lions.  You can actually follow the lives of these animals on the Londolozi Blog.  Seeing all of the amazing animals in their natural habitat is an experience like no other.  It truly gives you a new appreciation for nature.

Needless to say, there are many reasons to visit South Africa and after spending time at Londolozi I agree it is certainly one of them.  If you are planning your Honeymoon, or any special trip, definitely add this to your list.

Here's to happy travels and:
