• With the might of Victoria Falls at your feet

Both ethereal and awe-inspiring, the thrill of dropping to one knee above Zambia’s legendary Victoria Falls – one of the world’s seven natural wonders – is truly second to none. Stand with your toes tantalisingly close to the mighty rush of water below and let your love flow like the might of the Zambezi River. Though the pure beauty of the falls is enough to create memories that last a lifetime, be sure to sweep your intended off their feet to a luxury river lodge where a warm Jacuzzi and cold bottle of bubbly awaits.

• Out in the wilderness on safari 

Though proposing to your loved one is nerve-racking enough, if you really want to get your heart racing consider a proposal amidst the wilderness of the Masai Mara in Kenya. Whether you choose to pop the question right as you spot your first lioness prowling across the savannah, or whether you save it for your rose-laden luxury safari lodge that takes “glamping” to the next level, asking your beloved to marry you out in the wild will no doubt be a roaring success.
