With its scenic splendours, adventure activities and walking safaris galore, Zambia makes for a truly romantic yet action-packed honeymoon destination.

There's something romantic about seeing African wildlife while on foot. From tracking the paw prints of wild animals to listening out for the trumpets of nearby African elephants, walking safaris allow you to get that little bit closer to nature. Most popular in South Luangwa and accompanied by expert guides, walking safaris make for memorable romantic experiences.

Wildlife aside, Zambia offers a multitude of adrenaline-fuelled activities. From gentler sunset cruises along the Zambezi River to crashing through thunderous waves white water rafting, Victoria Falls makes perfect honeymoon grounds for thrill seekers and nature loving lovebirds alike. River boarding, bungee jumps, and gorge swings can be arranged for adrenaline-junkie couples, whilst elephant back safaris can also be added to the agenda.

If you're out to well and truly impress, take on a scenic 'flight of the angels' and soar over the mighty Victoria Falls by helicopter, an epic and romantic experience like no other.
