South Africa

  • Dear Rob, the entire trip was a thorough success and every aspect of it was most enjoyable, largely thanks to yourself for organising it. Glen Avon Lodge was very comfortable with lovely gardens in an ideal setting. Oystercatcher Lodge was fantastic, brilliantly situated on the beach with wonderfully hospitable hosts. Fullham Lodge was ideally situated away from the bustle of Camps Bay, but in easy reach of it. Dwyka Tented Lodge was fantastic. The guiding was superb and the general staff very attentive. The game was diverse and interesting, if not as dense as in other parts of Southern Africa. We had two wonderful encounters with cheetah on foot. Again many thanks and we hope to travel again with you in the near future.

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.
