Brides and grooms can also toast their nuptials on tours of vineyards and estates in the wine-lands not easily available to tourists, via a private 4×4 jeep with a specialist guide.

What’s more, much of the accommodation is booked exclusively, in order to give newlyweds the ultimate in privacy.

Andre Van Kets, co-founder at Discover Africa, said: “Africa is a hugely popular honeymoon destination – it combines romantic locations, beautiful wildlife and breath-taking experiences that will bring newlyweds even closer together – and we wanted to put together a package which combines all three of these aspects, along with some of Southern and East Africa’s most unforgettable sights.

“We have a number of honeymoon packages that cater for a wide range of budgets – from modest budgets to unlimited budgets – but this trip offers a degree of romance that is truly priceless.”

As if that was not enough, there are a number of exclusive extras available to add on, to make the trip even more special.

Philanthropic couples looking to leave a meaningful mark on the continent can choose to do so in a number of ways – whether it’s sponsoring the relocation of a rhino from South Africa to Botswana to help protect the species from threat of extinction due to poachers and the rhino horn trade (£26,500), or donating to the Environmental Education Centre, to aid in the development of Singita Sasakwa’s future leaders (£4,700).
