South Africa is the perfect destination for honeymooners who want to get away from the fast pace of normal life and experience a vibrant, diverse culture. With beautiful weather, incredible wildlife and so much to see and experience, this is the ideal destination for adventurous couples.
If you want to experience South African city life, look no further than Cape Town. The “Mother City” has vast, sandy beaches, romantic views and plenty of amazing hotels to lie back in luxury and soak up the sun.
Watch the beautiful people at play on Clifton Beach in Camps Bay, hire a car and explore the Western Cape’s world famous wine route and sip champagne on a romantic evening boat ride from the V&A Waterfront. More daring couples can even dive deep into the ocean and face a cage dive with South Africa’s great white sharks.
Kruger National Park
If you’re more interested in wildlife than sunbathing, honeymoon on safari at Kruger National Park, the home of South Africa’s Big Five. The Romancing The Stone package at the park offers honeymooners a private, romantic lodge overlooking a popular watering hole, cocktails on your own private deck and giant bubble baths. You’ll also have the chance to view all of the magnificent animals of the national park on personalized safari tours.
For a picture of city life outside of Cape Town, travel up to the eastern side of South African to Kwazulu Natal and visit the buzzing city of Durban. This city offers the best surf and swimming in South Africa, with the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean along its shores.
Stay at the luxurious Hotel Izulu and enjoy the hotel’s paradise spa, massive suites and seven sprawling golf courses. If you ever get tired of the hotel’s decadent offerings, you can head over to the beach and soak up some South African sun.
