There’s outside the box and then there’s Madagascar, probably one of the most original (and Original) honeymoon destinations on the planet. The fact that 80% of the wildlife here is endemic demonstrates just how unique this African gem is. Add to that a melting pot of cultural influences, from European to African and Asian to Arabic, and you’re on to something really quite special.

Madagascar may not exactly have a reputation for hyper luxurious hotels, muted tones and seamless logistics but the beaches in the North are superb and would be fabulous as a standalone fly and flop. However, if you do want to do something a little more intrepid on your honeymoon, you've come to the right place. The real beauty of Madagascar is in its authenticity, its unspoilt landscapes and culture and its sheer 'otherness', for want of a better word.

First of all there's the wildlife, and a great way to kick off your honeymoon in Madagascar is to head on a safari. While you won't be party to the epic game of a traditional African safari, the sheer diversity of wildlife in Madagascar is quite astonishing, from the iconic lemur to birds, chameleons and all manner of creepy crawlies. Once you've had your fill of the country's wildlife, head to the north of the country for some R&R and a spot of luxury along Madagascar's coastline. Here you will find genuinely luxurious boutique hotels, the pick of the honeymoon bunch being Tsarabanjina. Its thatched bungalows set across the small island, with uninterrupted views across the ocean, will make you feel like you're living your own version of Robinson Crusoe. Tsarabanjina is a truly spoiling resort with incredibly personalised service, excellent food and one of the best beaches in Africa - honeymoon heaven.

For something even more left field, Madagascar combines wonderfully as a bush and beach combo with South Africa. See big game on a South African safari before getting a direct flight from Johannesburg to Nosy Be, another superb archipelago in the north of Madagascar.

The Beaches of Madagascar

The beaches in Madagascar are some of the most unspoilt on the planet, with sand so white it looks photoshopped. You'd be hard pushed to find a more idyllic honeymoon spot.
