A Wonderful Trip
4 - Very Good
  • Steeve
“It has been such a pleasure spending these days with you, Liezl and Jabu. On behalf of the group we thank you and your co-workers for the service given which was beyond our expectations. Hope to see you all in Mauritius soon or us for the mini traverse.”
Aquila Private Game Reserve
5 - Excellent
  • Mark Deimund
“The trip overall was great! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the animals, and even the drive through the mountains just getting to the reserve was breathtaking. The game reserve itself was beautiful. Please do note that it's a private reserve, not a national park like Kruger. We were aware of this beforehand, but many reviews complain about this not being truly "wild" animals. Our travel itinerary didn't allow for the time to fly over to Kruger for a more extensive safari, so Aquila was the next best thing (and relatively close to Cape Town). The animals have generally all been rescued from the wild, and they have substantial area to roam, so the tour still felt more safari-like, not a zoo at all. Before the game drive, a buffet breakfast was served, and lunch was also provided after the drive as well. The lodge also had rooms for overnight guests, though we only did a day trip. The game drive lasted for about 3 hours, during which time we saw hippos, rhinos, elephants, springbok, giraffes, lions, hartebeest, and a wildebeest. It really was an incredible experience, and the photos and memories will be with us for a long time!”

Honeymoon Tours in South Africa

3 Most Popular Honeymoon Destinations in South Africa

  1. Cape Town: with its unique blend of urban sophistication, world-class culinary delights, and stunning natural scenery, Cape Town is the ultimate destination for an unforgettable honeymoon in South Africa. Hike to the top of the iconic Table Mountain for panoramic views of the city and its surroundings, or drive to the Cape of Good Hope to catch one of the most romantic sunsets of your life.
  2. Plettenberg Bay: Located on a picturesque bay along the Garden Route, about halfway between Knysna and Tsitsikamma National Park, the coastal haven of Plettenberg Bay—or Plet, as locals love to call it—provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic escape far from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis. Whether you prefer to relax on the sandy shores of Lookout Beach, take a romantic sunset cruise in the open ocean, or explore the lush Robberg nature reserve, Plet offers plenty of opportunities for an intimate yet exciting South African honeymoon.
  3. Stellenbosch: Cobblestone streets, centuries-old oak trees, cozy cafes, and world-class wineries make this charming town in the Cape Winelands district a prime choice for newlyweds looking to savor each other's company in an old-world setting. Surprise your better half with a candlelight dinner at one of the many Michelin-starred award-winning bistros scattered around the city, or wander around prestigious art galleries to feel like the leads in a romantic comedy!

Travel Tips for South Africa Honeymoon Tours

  • Secure your South Africa honeymoon accommodations and tours well in advance, ideally 8 to 12 months ahead, to ensure you get the best options.
  • Plan your South Africa honeymoon based on your preferences and expectations. For safari adventures, visit during the dry winter months (May to September) when wildlife congregates around water sources. For beach getaways and lush landscapes, choose the summer season (November to February).
  • Maximize your honeymoon in South Africa by visiting for at least two weeks. This is enough time to explore multiple destinations and fully savor the country's diverse offerings, including wildlife safaris and coastal retreats.
  • Discover a selection of exceptional South Africa honeymoon resorts, including the Singita in Kruger National Park, the Thonga Beach Lodge near the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, the Grootbos Nature Reserve in Overberg, and the Oyster Box Hotel in Durban.
  • Opt for one of our South Africa honeymoon packages to streamline your planning and guarantee a smoother, more enjoyable experience.
