Romance has, for decades, found a warm and adventurous home on safari in Africa. Staying in a luxury camp or lodge surrounded by the wild beauty of nature is a classic sojourn.
Lake Malawi, Kafue National Park, Busanga Plains and the Zambezi River – just upstream from Victoria Falls – each set the scene for a secluded getaway. So, whether it’s your wedding, honeymoon, anniversary or a special romantic retreat, we invite you to toast to long-lasting love in one of these wilderness areas.
Our teams at Kaya Mawa Lodge, Ila Safari Lodge, Chisa Busanga Camp, Tongabezi Lodge and Sindabezi Island Camp are ready to lavish attention on every detail for your special occasion.
Malawi’s own love island can be found in the dazzling waters of Lake Malawi. The private beaches of Likoma Island set the scene for a romantic escape in The Warm Heart of Africa. Tucked away into the boulders and sand of a secluded bay, Kaya Mawa Lodge welcomes couples to Ngani, Makungulu, Nkhwazi and Mbamba rooms, and our honeymoon house, Madimba.

There is a special kind of magic in Kafue National Park that will have you captivated from the moment you enter this vast Zambian bush. Ila Safari Lodge welcomes you to under canvas elegance within your private piece of wilderness on a quiet bend along the Kafue River.
