Have you ever imagined experiencing a romantic getaway in the wilds of Africa? Well, if you have, few destinations on the continent can match what Namibia has to offer. Here’s a closer look at how you can plan an amorous adventure in this fascinating country.

When to Visit

Before you pack up everything and head off to Africa with your partner, it’s a good idea to look up what the best timings are for visiting Namibia. Here the land is primarily covered in desert, meaning it’s hot and dry for the most part. When the rains do come down though – usually around October – they come down hard, so you might want to stick to the dry months.

Getting to Namibia

So, just how are you planning to visit Namibia? Of course, you can always fly into the country – flights from Europe for example will cost around 650 to over 1000 pounds. That being said, if you initially travel to South Africa or Botswana, you can simply rent out a car and drive to the desert.

Where to Stay

Namibia offers plenty of options when it comes to accommodations, particularly for travelling couples. Hotels in Namibia range from simple boutique options to luxurious options like the Avani Windhoek Hotel & Casino. There’s always the option to camp out in the desert too.

Planning Your Itinerary

There are a great many options when it comes to a couple’s itinerary in Namibia. Spending a night or two in the desert wilderness can be a once in a lifetime experience – so don’t pass it up. Just as well, a cruise along the Zambezi River or a safari at the Kalahari are great choices.

Many newlyweds flock to the paradise Thai island of Koh Samui – and with good reason too. This stunning beach getaway is perfect for a romantic excursion with your significant other. Here’s a quick couple’s guide to this amorous island found in the Gulf of Thailand.

An Overview of the Island

Koh Samui is a resort island that’s perfect for relaxing and lounging. Travelling around the island is relatively easy via taxi or even an open-air truck. Most tours available here also have couples offers – so don’t forget to take advantage of these.

The Beaches

The beaches are Koh Samui’s premier attractions, and you’d be remiss not to visit these with your special someone. While Chaweng Beach is far the most popular option, it does tend to get crowded rather quickly. If you prefer something more intimate, consider Coral Cove or Crystal Bay.

Outdoor Excursions

Of course, Koh Samui isn’t just about beaches and resorts – if you and your partner like to explore and break a sweat, there’s plenty to do here! One of the best outdoor activities to try out is a trek to the Namuang Waterfalls.

Where to Stay

Being a resort destination, you won’t have too much trouble finding a place to stay here in Koh Samui. For starters, there’s plenty of Chaweng Beach resorts to choose from – like the Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort. Most of these also come with exclusives couples’ packages and deals. So, as with the tours, be sure to do your research ahead of time.
