South Africa Honeymoon
An authentic South Africa honeymoon is wonderful for romantic holidays, especially for those who want to mix up the romance with outdoor pursuits such as game viewing and walking.
If it’s a bush luxury you are after for your South Africa honeymoon, look no further than a lodge in a private reserve(for instance, Sabi Sands, Madikwe or Phinda), many of which have honeymoon suites and can arrange romantic gaslit dinners on a private terrace or deep in the bush.
Another popular venue for a honeymoon safari in South Africa is the super-luxurious Sun City complex, which lies just two hours’ drive from Johannesburg and borders the excellent malaria-free Pilanesberg Game Reserve.
Ideally, pair up your South Africa honeymoon with a few days at a coastal resort such as Umhlanga Rocks and Ballito in KwaZulu-Natal, Plettenberg Bay and Knysna on the Garden Route, or even Cape Town itself.
Finally, no self-respecting foodie should miss out on the Cape Winelands, which host some of South Africa’s finest, most gracious and most romantic restaurants and wine-tasting venues.
