Honeymoons & Weddings
Honeymoons to South Africa
South Africa is a great all round holiday destination and therefore offers everything you might desire on an African honeymoon – plenty of wildlife, spectacular scenery, wonderful restaurants, warm hospitality, exclusive retreats and varied activities to suit all interests. For the more active, there are walking safaris, mountain hiking and horse-riding trails to consider, whilst there is no better place in the world to spend lazy days sipping wine and enjoying delicious food in the sunshine. Whatever your priorities on honeymoon, South Africa is an affordable and exciting destination to visit.
The one thing South Africa can not do is compete with the traditional Indian Ocean destinations of Mauritius, Zanzibar, the Seychelles and Mozambique in terms of ‘picture perfect’ tropical beaches. Although most beaches are sandy, and stretch for miles and miles, they are rarely ‘palm-fringed’ or protected by offshore reefs. They offer wonderful walks, great seascapes, surf swimming and surfing, but rarely the idyllic ‘tropical beach’ environment.
Whilst you may not need to look beyond South Africa, it is easy to combine a honeymoon in South Africa with a variety of other African hot-spots such as Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River (Zimbabwe and Zambia), the Okavango Delta (Botswana), Namib Desert (Namibia), Masai Mara (Kenya) and the wonderful beach destinations mentioned above.
Weddings in South Africa
Weddings are possible throughout South Africa and in a number of different locations, from wildlife camps and beach lodges to country hotels and mountain retreats. We are able to assist with wedding arrangements as well as help manage larger parties who may all have individual travel needs.
