Perfect for the couple craving the best of Africa, Beachcomber’s Bush & Beach holiday package has us swooning.
Picture this – you're planning your honeymoon (or just booking some romantic R and R). Africa is on the cards.

Couples will stay in the exclusive camps, each boasting six rooms, an en-suite bathroom, outdoor shower, plunge pool, viewing deck, dining area and boma. Tandane Camp has our vote – it means 'place of love' and looks utterly ethereal at night with flame torches all around.
