Honeymoon in South Africa and Mozambique

An African safari is a dream honeymoon for many people and understandably so. South Africa makes the perfect destination for a romantic holiday whether you are celebrating your marriage, anniversary or simply want to get away for some time together on your own. With a wealth of beautiful lodges to choose from you are sure to find what you are looking for whether that is rustic luxury or out and out opulence.

We recommend beginning your honeymoon with a couple of nights’ relaxation. You are sure to be tired after the excitement and planning of the wedding plus a flight so it’s important to regroup and ease yourselves into the romantic groove. Spend a night or two at Four Seasons The Westcliff in Johannesburg where the extensive spa, wonderful restaurants and superb views (from its hilltop location) will sooth the senses and allow you to re-adjust.

Feeling refreshed, take a short flight to the world-renowned Sabi Sands for your ultimate Big Five safari. The fun begins immediately as you encounter game on the way to your lodge by 4WD vehicle accompanied by a ranger. There is a great choice of lodges so please call us to discuss your requirements but also check out our handful of recommended places to stay here. (link to Lodges in Greater Kruger) Enjoy three or four days of morning and evening game drives, burning African sunsets and the very best food and service.

After the excitement of your safari, fly onward directly from Kruger to Vilanculos in Mozambique where you’ll then be transfer by helicopter to Benguerra Island. Here you’ll find two of our favourite Mozambiquan lodges – Azura Benguerra and &Beyond Benguerra Island Lodge. Sharing a stunning stretch of pristine white sand beach both lodges offer a range of beach activities, romantic dinners and beautiful thatched individual rooms and suites with private decks and plunge pools. Take a look or call our experts to find out which one is for you.
