Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe/Zambia

What could be more romantic than holding hands with your special man as you stand just a few feet away from one of the most powerful natural wonders in the world? Located on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, the spray from these falls can be seen from thirty miles away. Best viewed from both sides, day passes for border crossings are available in both directions.

If you’re up for bungee jumping, you can be arranged from a bridge spanning the Zambezi River. If not, then safari trip to view elephants, giraffes, and lions in their natural habitat would fill the bill. Try a dinner cruise down the Zambezi River. These are but a few of the many recreational activities available to those who choose Victoria Falls for their romantic holiday.


Looking for romance in Egypt? How about a trip which includes a luxury boat trip down the Nile as if you were Cleopatra and Marc Anthony? Trek to the Giza plain and wonder at the majesty of the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Stroll through the Cairo National Museum and end your Egyptian romance on the beach at a popular Red Sea resort. Red Sea Beaches are so beautiful and hotel there provide all-inclusive packages plus their safari tours, diving trips, animation parties, unlimited shopping options, and oriental cafes. If you are looking for an unforgettable romantic vacation in Egypt, then Hurghada or Sharm El Sheikh are your best destination.

The Seychelles

If five-star luxury, pristine beaches and customer service which caters to your every whim fit your idea of the perfect romantic holiday then perhaps the African Island nation of the Seychelles is for you. Many of the major hotel brands synonymous with luxuries such as Raffles and Hilton are represented here.

People in the Seychelles speak Creole however English and French are widely used as well. This Indian Ocean archipelago consists of 150 islands situated off the east coast of the main African continent. Activities are oriented to water sports, local casinos, restaurants and bars.

Then again if you’re here for romance, you really need little more than the views and the time to spend with your special someone. Due to the remote location, a travel insurance policy that assists with emergency evacuations might be a good idea.

Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town is the second largest city in South Africa. It currently serves as the legislative seat of government in South Africa as the South African Parliament is located here. From a tourism point of view, Cape Town records more tourists annually than any other city in Africa.

What’s so romantic about Cape Town? Romance in Cape Town could easily be said to center around the sunset. What better time for Romance to begin. Yes during the day you can gallop a horse through the waves of a pristine beach or take a helicopter tour of the wine land. But the sundown really does spell romance in Cape Town. Try a sunset champagne cruise, or a sunset cable car ride up Table Mountain. Any of theses destinations would be right for you.
