South Africa has it all, from vibrant cities and beautiful beaches to untamed wilderness and rural beauty. Experience sunrise in the bush, “Sundowners” (South Africa’s version of Happy Hour) in wine country or at the beach and no shortage of over-the-top luxury hotels and restaurants. There is nothing more romantic than driving through the bush and witnessing African wildlife in its natural habitat at dawn.
Many honeymooners choose to begin their adventure in Cape Town and then end with a safari in Krueger Park. While Cape Town is a large city, it’s unique because it has an abundance of natural beauty and wildlife. You can hike Table Mountain to admire the sweeping views (or take the cable car up), explore the Cape of Good Hope, soak in the panoramic views at Cape Point and even check out an African penguin colony at Boulder’s Beach, as well as take an afternoon drive to the Winelands.
