In search of a super-romantic destination to pop the question? Well, this is what one couple did …

He took her to Thonga Beach Lodge, they kayaked across beautiful Lake Sibaya to a remote and exquisite breakfast stop one morning, and then he posed the question. He was gracioulsy accepted, as you might have predicted. And the couple loved it so much at Thonga that they’re returning for their honeymoon.

Remote and utterly sublime, Thonga Beach Lodge is tucked away in a dune forest just above the unspoilt beach at Mabibi Bay. Barefoot luxury is what you can expect, along with plenty of romance, and a fabulous choice of nature activities. These include kayaking (with or without marital intention); snorkelling; diving; and swimming with whale sharks, dolphins and manta rays. All of this is entirely optional, which means you could just opt for hours and hours of body-sunning and leave all this activity to the more energetic.

Oh, and in November the turtle season starts, which means you can go out at night on an awesome guided expedition to view these amazing creatures.
