The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

After what some described the wedding of the century, staged with all the spectacle and finery available to the British royal family, Prince William and his bride Catherine took a rather more relaxed option for their honeymoon, opting for a secluded spot in the Seychelles. Since William proposed while on holiday in Kenya, so Africa clearly holds a special place in their hearts.

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky 

When Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton married her childhood sweetheart, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in 2010, they chose to go on safari honeymoon in South Africa.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Yes, after seven years together, Hollywood super couple Brangelina finally have plans to marry, and rumour has it that they have selected Egypt for their honeymoon destination. No strangers to the African continent, their adopted daughter Zahara is from Ethiopia, and biological daughter Shiloh was born in Namibia. They have also previously holidayed in Kenya.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner

The socialite daughter of Donald and Ivana Trump could certainly have her pick of any honeymoon destination when she married Jared Kushner, a businessman and son of a real estate developer. They chose South Africa for a safari honeymoon where they stayed in the Ivory Sands Safari Lodge, costing up to US$900 a day.

However you don’t have to be a millionaire to enjoy Africa, as the cost varies significantly from place to place and with different kinds of accommodation. Would you go to Africa on honeymoon?
