Romantic Getaways

Romantic Travel Tours

Can you imagine a more spectacular or dreamy start beginning to your new life together than beginning your honeymoon under the brilliant Kenyan skies on your very own private star bed? Awaken to witness the glow in the east as the sun rises up to greet you. You may hear an elephant swimming in the pool below you, or watch the gruff wart-hog and fragile gazelle drinking along the edge. The landscapes in northern Kenya spread out before you – a gem in the wilderness, abundant with wildlife in the heart of dramatic escarpments and wildlife plains.

Or perhaps, your idea of a honeymoon of a lifetime begins at atop an ancient, fourth-century Mayan temple looking out over a vast landscape of lush jungle interrupted only by the occasional village.  You are in the heart of the jungle of Belize, where you will spend the night in a specially prepared tent at the foot of the temple, just the two of you!  Belize is a wonderfully romantic place, where you can enjoy secluded private picnic lunches and candle-lit dinners as well as adventure.

In India, you can savor incredibly luxurious heritage properties – former palaces, and enjoy lavish spa treatments together.  South Africa, Chile or Australia…. Whatever the occasion – honeymoon, anniversary or simply a romantic getaway, Big Five can arrange an extraordinary adventure to suit your passions.   At Big Five, we don’t tell stories better; we help your family tell better stories.

President’s Pick: Costa Rica Authentic 9 Days President’s Picks Interest(s): Romantic Getaways, Sustainable Travel, Adventure Travel

Call for Rates

"Costa Rica pretty much invented the phrase “eco-tourism” but we noticed that the destination has lost some of its luster in regards to the principles of innovative sustainable travel. I was very disappointed in a recent visit when I saw little of the Costa Rica I once knew. That motivated me to go back to the drawing board. We created this new Costa Rica journey to take you back in time to the place where the sustainable principles we use today were forged."
