Luxury Honeymoons in South Africa & Mozambique

Luxury honeymoons in South Africa offer newlyweds wildlife-laden landscapes, captivating culture and world-class food and wine. From the subtropical coast of northern KwaZulu-Natal and Cape Town’s buzzing arts and culture scene to the verdant vineyards of Franschhoek and the picturesque Garden Route, South Africa is a place for discovery. It’s also the perfect place to spend your first weeks together as a married couple. If you fancy a little relaxation as part of your South Africa honeymoon, the beaches of Mozambique beckon to newlyweds. South Africa and Mozambique – a perfect pairing.

The Cape Peninsula

The Cape Peninsula has so much to offer those looking for a South Africa honeymoon. A nature lover’s paradise, the Table Mountain National Park is dotted with beautiful valleys, bays and beaches, and contains an extraordinarily diverse mix of unique fauna and flora. At its tip, Cape Point is one of the most dramatic coastal locations on the continent and the place to spot whale, dolphin and great white shark. Head into the Winelands to sample some of South Africa’s finest wines with a private tasting. From mid-August to mid-September, the area is a collage of wild flowers, making driving around a real joy. 

Cape Town

The oldest city in South Africa, Cape Town is also its most romantic. Kick off married life at the top of iconic Table Mountain, admiring incredible views of the city and sweeping coastline below. Colourful Cape Dutch and Georgian architecture, a lively waterfront, laid-back locals, and top-class restaurants add to its allure for honeymooners.

Kruger National Park

Summer is one of the best times of year for wildlife viewing in the Kruger National Park; as the landscape dries, animals congregate around diminishing waterholes, making sightings more regular. Just some of the animals you might see include elephant, lion, giraffe, hippo and the elusive leopard, as well as vibrant bird life. Stay at the Lion Sands River Lodge here to cuddle up under the stars in your own private tree house, with the sounds of the bush as your bedtime story.

The perfect addition: Mozambique

If you fancy a little relaxation after exploring during your South Africa honeymoon, the beaches of Mozambique beckon. Benguerra Island is home to endless strings of secluded, white-sand beaches; you can spend lazy days under shady palms or enjoy some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world. Stay at one of Azura Benguerra’s private villas, enjoy intimate dinners on the beach and watch the sunset from the deck of a traditional dhow.

Why choose?

If you can’t decide between South Africa’s lively culture and Mozambique’s offshore paradise, then don’t; combine the two for the ultimate beach and city, twin-centre break. For the best of both worlds, speak to our honeymoon specialists, who will help you plan the ultimate itinerary.
