Curzon and Jones is here to introduce breathtaking African destinations that will burst your bubbles or break your chandelier. Try something different and beautiful and It would  amaze  you to know that you have so many places you can visit. Ready to hear them? Kindly read below:  

Mombasa, Kenya

Mombasa, Kenya's main tourist destination, is a city where life is a romantic tale; a place to relax, discover and let love soar with a wide variety of exciting activities and places to visit. With Valentine’s Day approaching, life under the Mombasa sun just got even better. It’s the perfect time to surprise your loved ones and show them how much you love them.

Located on the eastern coastline of Kenya, bordering the Indian Ocean, Mombasa is  popular destination for its beaches. Mombasa offers a diverse marine life, world-class hotels and friendly atmosphere. There is a tropical climate all year and it is a great destination filled with activities for valentine. Awaken early memories with top historical ruins like Fort Jesus.

The central part of the city, Mvita, is an island in a river delta, accessed by bridges and from the south by ferries operating around the clock. Perhaps no other place on the planet conjures such a spirit of adventure and romance. For first-time visitors, the sheer diversity of things to do is dazzling. Visitors can snorkel and dive fish-rich coral reefs, relax on pearly beaches, experience the melting pot of cultures and cuisines in Mombasa and Malindi, and explore tropical islands steeped in Swahili history.

Accra, Ghana

Accra is one perfect city where nothing can go wrong on Valentine’s Day.   Although located in a neighbouring country, there are many amazing things to do while in Accra from clubbing to contemporary art, street food and historical tours. Once you arrive at the Kotoka International Airport, you can decide to stay at one of the many luxurious hotels within the airport’s vicinity such as Holiday Inn, Golden Tulip Hotel and the Airport View Hotel. With  your lover, you could visit Tea Baa, a small and cosy restaurant for the best cold teas in the city or the Republic Bar and Grill for live highlife music and great cocktails made with locally-brewed alcohol.  Take a stroll along Oxford Street, the main artery that runs through Osu and find stallholders selling traditional crafts such as jewellery, dashikis and drums. The city offers visitors so many things to do and see. Nigerians do not require visa to visit or stay in Accra.

Zanzibar

You can surprise your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day by taking her to Zanzibar. Zanzibar is an archipelago of historic Indian Ocean islands, awash with atmosphere, intrigue, and idyllic beach experiences. There are masses of accommodation options across the price spectrum, and plenty to see, do and discover. As the birthplace of the Swahili, site of Sultans' Palaces and renowned for its spice plantations, the little island republic of Zanzibar features larger-than-life on the world map and is a must-see at the end of any trip to Tanzania. It is a semi-autonomous part of Tanzania in East Africa. It is open to Nigerians 90 days upon arrival, another sweet deal you can add to the list you are making already. You can visit the Stone Town, Paje, Bweju, Jambiani or Nunwi. So many destination sites for you to pick from, have a blast. Do not be in a hurry, you have 90 days t to tour Zanzibar and Zanzibar would be happy to have you. There are some fabulous beaches on the islands of Zanzibar, and many choices for an ideal spot to sit back and watch the white dhow sails cruising the startling blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Whether it is for a Zanzibar holiday, honeymoon or some post-safari  relaxation; whether you prefer the blissful privacy of a private island or the amenities of a larger hotel; and whatever your preferred activities (diving and snorkelling, eating, sleeping, playing tennis, reading on a lounger...), there are good options for every traveller.

The Gambia

It’s no secret that The Gambia offers guests a world of authentic experiences. If you want to make your Valentine’s Day memorable by going away to some place romantic, The Gambia is a unique getaway destination for Valentine celebration.The Gambia is probably the visa-free destination for an exotic vacation. Its natural beauty attracts thousands of visitors every year. The Gambia always leaves an eternal imprint on visitors’ memory lanes. Nigerians can visit without a visa.

Cotonou, Benin Republic

We admit that Cotonou  is an amazing shopping destination but it is also a wonderful city for a  romantic getaway. Cotonou is popular for so many things but it is really a great vacation destination. Many associate Cotonou only with its seaport and business districts but this French town has a whole lot more to offer than just a destination for importation of cars and household items or a business hub. Many Nigerians are fond of visiting the Benin Republic illegally, by entering through the bush or forbidden entrances when they can actually stamp their passports at the point of entry and enter the city freely. Nigerians do not require visa to enter or stay in Benin Republic. Elope with your sweetheart to a nearby city. Cotonou, here we come.

Don't forget to take lovely pictures, while you enjoy the season with your heartthrob. Curzon and Jones blogs is here to answer all your travel questions. You can send an email to blog@curzonandjones.com for travel deals to any of these countries.
