Why South Africa?
The ideal destination for honeymooners that are seeking out an adventure, South Africa will provide couples with the most memorable of honeymoons. With such a varied landscape of desert such as the Kalahari Desert, mountains such as Table Mountain, and even beaches – a South African honeymoon has something for everybody.
South Africa has it all. With some of the best safari options in Africa, stunning national parks, windswept yet idyllic beaches, incredible food and local wine – this is an excellent choice for any style of honeymoon.
About the activities:
The vast national parks, such as Kruger and Kgalagadi, offer the opportunity to witness the Big Five in action (lions, leopards, buffalo, rhino and elephant), with a fantastic array of world class safari lodges. There are also great hiking and surfing options, although if you prefer something a tad more laid back, the whale watching, wine tasting and cultural melting pot of Cape Town should be enough to whet your appetite.
About the culture:
South Africa has a well documented, tumultuous history and whilst there, it is essential to pop in to the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg to learn more about the struggles that defined this beautiful country for so many years. Continue your visit with a trip to one of the townships, where you can meet the local people and experience humility and good nature that will leave you humbled.
What we love:
The safari options in South Africa are pretty difficult to usurp, but have a look at the Blue Train, which will take you between Pretoria and Cape Town over the course of 27 hours in completely luxurious comfort. Taking in the sights of South Africa’s awe-inspiring landscape, it’s such a romantic way to celebrate your honeymoon.
Take me there!
