As if we even need to give you a reason to stay at the Four Seasons in the Serengeti - let's be honest, the name says it all. But here's a good one: it's the only safari resort in Central Serengeti, Africa's renowned wildlife sanctuary.

THE ULTIMATE HONEYMOON GUIDE

Have your camera ready as you transfer from airstrip to hotel - it's like a mini safari, with monkeys and leopards to be spied en route. There are 77 rooms, including 12 suites with refreshing plunge pools and five villas with private swimming pools - these are named after the 'Big Five' and guarded by a member of the Maasai at all times. Make sure you experience the discovery centre - it offers valuable (non-dreary) information on lions and the Great Migration. An evening walking safari, rounded off with cocktails in the bush as you watch Maasai traditional dancing, is a surreal escapade.
