For many newlyweds, a honeymoon is an excuse to begin married life in style, by splashing out on a lavish holiday of a lifetime.
But one holiday operator has taken it to the next level, launching the world’s most expensive honeymoon, aimed at super-rich newlyweds.
The uber-luxurious trip comes at an eye watering price that would even put a dent in the pockets of Sunday Times Rich List brides and grooms.
The 14-day trip, which takes in parts of both Southern and East Africa, has been dubbed ‘The World’s Most Expensive Honeymoon.’ According to Discover Africa’s market research, this is the currently the most expensive complete honeymoon package being offered by a tour operator.
The exclusive package is being offered by leading tailor-made safari operator, Discover Africa, and costs a cool £152,348 per couple, including transfers via private jet and helicopter but excluding international flights.
For £10,882 per couple, per day, newlyweds can:
* Enjoy a helicopter ride over Cape Town, Table Mountain and the 12 Apostles
* Stay in a penthouse in an exclusive hotel on the city’s V&A Waterfront; sip Sundowner cocktails on top of Table Mountain
* Go on a number of private safaris in some of Africa’s most wildlife-abundant areas including the Serengeti
*Take part in an adrenalin-pumping game drive in Tanzania, before glamping overnight.
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 4x4 jeep with a specialist guide.
Other excursions on the trip include visiting a traditional Masai village; shopping for a honeymoon gift of Tanzanite jewellery and gorilla trekking in Rwanda.
