February is the month of romance and whilst we are all feeling in love we thought it would be a good time to share our top tips to planning the perfect romantic proposal in Africa.
Why Africa you ask? Well for one, Africa has it all. From its iconic wildlife, beautiful landscapes and stunning sunrises and spectacular sunsets, the list goes on. It will certainly be an unforgettable experience for both of you and a story to share for many years to come.
Located on the banks of Lake Kariba, Changa Safari Camp is one of the most idyllic safari camps in Zimbabwe. With its secluded location and charming atmosphere, we have undoubtedly found you a perfect place to plan your proposal in Africa. Surrounded by indigenous trees, the lapping waters of the lake close by, wildlife passing through camp and the blue Matusadona mountains in the distance – we have it all!
For many travellers, planning a safari to Africa requires a great deal of preparation and whilst it will be all very exciting, if you are also planning a romantic proposal during your safari, this will add some extra touches to consider. You will be pleased to know we can handle all the details to make it the best experience you could hope for. Our team of welcoming and friendly staff are here to help you with all the little details you need to be ‘just right’ before you pop the question… and the bottle of chilled champagne!
Here are our Top Tips to the Perfect Proposal
Firstly, we ask you to take your pick from a variety of romantic settings for the proposal to take place.
We can arrange a private sunset cruise where you can enjoy a sundowner with the spectacular Kariba sunset as your backdrop, plan a surprise candlelit dinner for two under an umbrella of indigenous trees or set up a private picnic in the National Park.
The Little Touches
We can arrange a candle lit, bubble bath under the starry sky or do a rose petal turndown in your room with candles and champagne all set up for you whilst you are at dinner, creating the perfect surprise when you both return to the room.
Popping the Question
Our team are here to provide you with the perfect romantic canvas to ask your loved one “Will you marry me?” We can do the work for you and have our chef write it out for you in a rich chocolate sauce around the rim of your dessert. Or we can arrange for an early morning romantic wakeup call, with a delivery of champagne and breakfast to your room and hide the ring among the breakfast treats.
Capture the moment
Pick your favourite setting to propose and ask one of the team to be your photographer! We can hide somewhere discreet and capture the moment for you to remember always and we can also snap some happy photos after your proposal too.
