Luxury South Africa Honeymoons

South Africa, at the southern tip of Africa, is a dream honeymoon destination. It offers stunning mountain ranges, vibrant cities, scenic winelands, and a beautiful coastline. Moreover, the country boasts expansive national parks and private reserves for luxury safaris, ensuring reliable sightings of the Big Five: elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, and rhino. The beauty of a South African honeymoon lies in its flexibility – you can blend a luxury safari with Cape Town, vineyard exploration in the Cape Winelands, Drakensberg mountain hiking, and a secluded beach escape, or focus on one or two destinations. Our specialists can tailor your adventure or luxury experience to your preferences.

We specialize in curating truly unforgettable moments throughout your South Africa honeymoon. Our itineraries and private tours are just examples of routes that we hope will inspire you initially, but all of our tours are personalized to suit you!

South Africa offers something for every honeymoon couple! For those looking to do something adventurous, South Africa is home to a wealth of incredibly wild and diverse national parks for a safari. Whether you fly to the Kruger National Park or the Eastern Cape Reserves, there are great opportunities to see the Big Five. Return to your luxury lodge to enjoy romantic moments and surprises.

A spotlight on Cape Town for honeymooners

Gemma 184


Africa Specialist

Cape Town is often included in a South Africa honeymoon itinerary, and rightly so! The cosmopolitan city is an international hub for travelers, both starting and ending their South Africa adventure and offers something for everyone. For active couples, the Table Mountain range that wraps around the city is perfect for hiking, and the trails can be enjoyed throughout the year with or without a private guide. For couples interested in food and wine, enjoy a guided walking tour of the city which takes you to local gems, or award-winning restaurants. For couples keen on history, Robben Island – where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years – is a must-visit. We can also offer cultural township visits and museum visits. We’d recommend spending at least three days in Cape Town if you can as there is so much to do. Get in touch to find out more!

When to go on your South Africa honeymoon

South Africa offers year-round travel opportunities. Summer, from December to March, is ideal for Cape Town and the Cape regions, providing a warm escape for those from the UK or the US. However, safari-goers may face hotter and more humid conditions with thicker grass. The winter season from June to September is superb for Kruger National Park, Sabi Sand Reserve, and Madikwe, with sparse vegetation for better game viewing. Mornings and evenings are cooler. Spring and Autumn shoulder seasons are excellent for travelers exploring multiple South African destinations.

Reviews from our clients

Savanna sabi sand


Mr & Mrs McNeil

Thank you again for putting together such an unforgettable trip with memories to last a lifetime! We’re sad it’s over, but already can’t wait to visit another part of Africa for more safari magic and amazing culture!!!! The fact that we didn’t have to worry about checking in for flights and had all transportation done made everything that much smoother for us. The ease with which we could contact you or anyone else on the team was a relief too. Glad we didn’t need to get in touch about anything major, but even the small check-ins from you made us feel that extra special. 

Your Luxury South Africa Honeymoon Questions Answered

Can I combine Cape Town and private safari honeymoon in South Africa?

Absolutely! Splitting your time between the bustling city of Cape Town and a wilder experience in the bush is very popular for a South Africa honeymoon. As all of our tours are private, we can also organize any excursions you’d like to do in Cape Town. Some of the most popular tours include a Cape Peninsula tour (where you can visit the penguins at Boulders Beach), a food and wine tour, and a guided hike up Table Mountain. We will also help organize the domestic flights or logistics between the city and safari.   

Which are the best hotels for a South Africa honeymoon?

The great thing about South Africa is that you can experience the ultimate luxury without a huge price tag, that other destinations across Africa have. Of course, it comes down to personal taste, but we work with a collection of smaller, boutique hotels across the country that are excellent for honeymooners as they offer privacy and that attention to detail. 

What special experiences can we do for your honeymoon?

There are so many special and unforgettable experiences across the country. On safari, we can organize private candlelit dinners or romantic sundowners in the bush. Some safari lodges also have private decks where you can sleep out under the stars – just the two of you. If you’re looking for more adventurous experiences, we can organize things like helicopter rides over Cape Town, shark-cage diving, or private wine-tasting experiences in beautiful vineyards. The possibilities are endless – and it’s our pleasure to go above and beyond to help organize these for you!
