Many people choose to travel to Africa for their honeymoon or romantic vacation. For many of us, a beach holiday is synonymous with romance and Africa has some of the best beaches in the world.

There are gorgeous islands dotted along the Indian Ocean including The Seychelles, and Zanzibar -- to name a few. Beaches here are generally less crowded and it's less expensive for a truly exclusive experience, than in the Caribbean, Hawaii or Mediterranean.

A luxury safari is also an incredibly romantic affair. Tented camps that cater to romantic couples include hot baths, butler service, gourmet dining and of course several daily game drives, so you can see the stunning African wildlife. Below you'll find a list of some of the most romantic safaris on offer in South Africa, Botswana, Tanzania and Kenya.

If city life is more to your taste and you enjoy culture and shopping, then Marrakech in Morocco is the perfect destination. There's nothing more romantic than staying in one of the city's opulent traditional houses, now turned into boutique hotels, called Riad's.

And if a luxury safari, desert island, or medieval city isn't your idea of romance, perhaps a sail down the Nile in a luxury boat will tweak your romantic taste buds. Or, a trek through the sands of the Sahara desert, following ancient caravan routes and enjoying the beautiful Dogon region in Mali.
