The Most Perfect Honeymoon
José and I are just settling back into our normal routine back home and reflecting back on how beyond perfect our honeymoon was. Everything was planned to perfection and to the smallest details.
Our stay in the Victoria Falls was the perfect beginning of our trip as we settled at the Royal Livingstone surrounded by the most beautiful views of the falls. We will always remember our excursion to the Livingstone Island and our epic swim in the falls! Kerry and Clare were great at suggesting extra activities like the bungee jumping and gorge swing (a big hit) and the dinner on the Royal Livingstone Express. Zambia was also our first African interaction with animals as giraffes, zebras and antelopes walk freely around the property.
We were sad to leave Zambia but excited for our first safari experience in the Okavango Delta. Both camps at Nxabega and Sandibe with &Beyond were beautiful beyond words can describe. The warmth of the staff, rangers, trackers and managers made the experience that much more memorable. We specially appreciated the daily welcoming dances, personalized details (food modifications based on restrictions, dinner locations and many other thoughtful gestures) and, overall, the people. We could not have asked for better initiation to safari adventures!
Our last stop in Benguerra, Mozambique was the perfect way to end our honeymoon. This secluded and exclusive island had everything to offer – from dune trips to scuba diving to sunset cruises to bonfires and many more incredible activities. We truly enjoyed staying at the &Beyond resort there as well. Their Eco-friendliness and contributions to the local communities made our stay even more special. We keep such a fond memory of the entire staff that helped us feel at home during our last week!
Kerry and Clare were incredible at everything. From the beginning, Kerry and Clare had a very clear vision of what would be best to accommodate our wishes, timing and budget and always had suggestions to make our stay as fun and as smooth as possible. The personalized itinerary they printed and had for us as we landed in South Africa (as well has hats!) is something that we will cherish forever. Kerry was also constantly available, in case we needed anything during our trip which we really appreciated. Every transfer from one location to another was smooth and planned to perfection.
José and I have already agreed that we will go with Kerry and Clare for our next trip to the African continent and we cannot wait to go back. Thank you so much for giving us the most perfect honeymoon we could have asked for!
