5 Reasons why your honeymoon should be in Safari

Honeymoons are considered to be one of the most important holidays of your life.  In days gone by most newlyweds were content with a bit of sun, a good beach and a nice hotel.  Nowadays,couples are increasingly seeking more exotic destinations and experiences that are “once in a lifetime” which will provide lasting memories.A safari holiday with Mahlatini.com can provide all of these things and many more!

  1. Adventure – The thrill of seeing animals in the wild is an adventure in itself, however, there are thrills to be found in all of the sights, sounds and smells of the surrounding scenery.  If game drives aren’t enough to get your pulses racing how about an afternoon canoeing alongside hippos or getting out in the open on a walking safari? Leaving the game parks behind, Africa has plenty more adventure to offer from diving with sharks in South Africa to dune surfing in Namibia, gorilla tracking in Uganda or white water rafting in Zambia.
  2. Romance–How can one not get lost in the romance of Africa’s sprawling wilderness areas? What could be more romantic than a balloon safari, a starlit bush dinner or a champagne toast at sunset?  There are some incredibly luxurious and romantic lodges and camps from which to enjoy a safari and at the same time be pampered by spa treatments, romantic picnics and champagne bubble baths.
  3. Unique experience –A safari is not your average beach holiday, it is unquestioningly a rare “once in a lifetime” holiday that few of your friends will likely experience.  It will most certainly ensure lasting memories.That said if you can’t quite give up on the idea of an idyllic beach holiday you can combine your safari with a stay on one of the stunning tropical islands off the African coast.
  4. Privacy and isolation –   In stark contrast to the mass tourism in the more traditional honeymoon spots of Europe and the Caribbean most luxury safaris take place in out of the way destinations that are completely hidden, unpopulated and discreet.
  5. Culture – From the vibrant and colourful Masai to the beaming children waving as you pass through their villages there is an abundance of opportunities to experience the African culture and every interaction you will have with the people will bestow lasting memories for you to treasure.

Beautiful Beaches I Would Like to Visit in Indonesia

There are different beaches that you will see in this world but some of these beaches are not enjoyed because the water can become too cold. There are also some beaches that cannot be considered beautiful especially when compared to beaches that will surely take your breath away.

Indonesia is well known for having a lot of beaches that are open to the public. This is the reason why tourists never fail to visit Indonesia. Out of all the beaches that are available, these are a few that I would like to visit soon:

1. Sanur Bali Beach

This is known to be one of the earliest beach resorts in Bali. This is a former fishing village that can surely be charming especially to people who have never seen an actual fishing village before. This comes with different hotels, restaurants and hang outs that can appeal to different crowds.

2. Kuta Beach

When it comes to beach destinations, this is the most popular place that tourists would like to visit. Tourists started loving this beach back in the 70s and they end up visiting all over and over again. The white sand is always a sight to behold against the big waves. This is a surfer’s haven that comes with a nice and beautiful sunset.

3. Padang Padang Beach

If you would like to check a beach that is more calm with clear blue waters, this is the best beach to go. It has a lot of reefs that will make this beach a unique destination. If you have watched Eat, Pray, Love before, this is one of the places that you can see in the movie. This beach can have a calming effect on anyone.

4. Plengkung Beach

If you are searching for a beach that has a lot of natural scenery, this is the one that you should visit. You may want to visit this also if you are a surfer because it has a lot of big waves that you can ride for a long time.

5. Parangtritis Beach

You have to admit that there are different places that can offer various views of the sunset but nothing compares to what you will see when you go to Parangtritis Beach. Of course, while waiting for the sun to set, there are a lot of other activities that you can do.

I vow to visit all of these beaches soon, would you visit these beach destinations too?
