Jembisa is a romantic safari lodge and is a stunning safari honeymoon destination.  It is a place to relax after the excitements of the wedding and at the same time enjoy adventure and a safari honeymoon - a wonderful platform from which to embark on married life.  Being a small lodge we are able to tailor each honeymoon to eah couple so that they will enjoy some safari activities on their own with a ranger and sometimes dine alone in fabulous lantern-lit locations.  There are a myriad of exciting safari options to choose from both at Jembisa and also some rare opporunities nearby such as elephant-back safaris - a very popular excursion with couples as they can both ride on the same elephant with the guide.

There are lots of special ' little touches' that we do for the honeymooners that will surpise and delight and for extra relaxation there is the option of a massage with locally grown organic essential oils that can be enjoyed on the private deck above the river.

Some couples choose to make Jembisa their sole honeymoon destination and others combine it with other destinations.  We can help you to plan this. The bush and beach combination is extremely popular as there are some excellent Indian Ocean beach destinations that are easily accessed from Johannesburg.

Below is a selection of a few options that honeymooners may consider to combine with a Jembisa Special honeymoon safari.

Cape Town   |  Mauritius   |  Mozambique

Cape Town

The internal flight from Johannesburg only takes 2 hours and flights can be a little as £60 each way. There are also direct flights from Cape Town back to London. Cape Town has a very varied climate but essentially the summer is November to March and is warm and sunny. Winter is short, June to August but it can be windy and wet.

Cape Town has plenty to offer from romantic drives through the winelands, to shark diving, surfing, and sightseeing including the iconic Table Mountain.

Mozambique and its beautiful islands

JBH-Honeymoons-MozambiqueLess developed than Mauritius this is the perfect destination for those wishing to get away from it all and relax on exquisite, private beaches and enjoy pristine reefs and marine life. Mozambique borders South Africa and its beautiful coastline stretches right up to Tanzania. There are 2 main archipelagos, The Quirimbas in the North and the Bazaruto in the South. On the whole the South is more easily accessible and more affordable.
