1) It’s diverse

Can’t decide if you want a beach honeymoon, a cultural honeymoon or perhaps just an affordable honeymoon? Look no further. South Africa has it all.

2) It’s beautiful

Lions, elephants, leopard, rhino, Great White sharks and more! South Africa is known for its gorgeous wildlife, marine life, fauna and flora. Let’s not forget the incredible sunrises, sunsets, landscapes and views. Beauty is everywhere. From the top of the highest mountain to the deepest blue seas, prepare to take it all in. It’s no wonder our overseas brides choose SA as their wedding destination. In fact, most of them stay on for their honeymoon too!


3) It’s affordable

While South Africa has made headlines due to politics and our economy, one thing’s for sure – if you’re paying with a foreign currency, then the exchange rate is bound to work in your favour. Thus making sunny South Africa one of the most affordable destinations in the world. If you’re looking for a cheap, yet adventurous honeymoon then you’ve come to the right place. Let us know your budget and we’ll design an eventful itinerary, at a price that will leave your soon-to- be husband smiling!


4) The weather is perfect

Can it get any better? South African winters generally last 3 months. That means that you’ve got 9 perfect months to play with. Um, and when we say ‘winter’, we’re not taking about snowy weather and icy chills. Being Africa, our winter months are fairly mild. While our summers are scorching hot. Rest assured that if you travel to the Western Cape in December, you’ll have uninterrupted tanning weather. Speak to our Luxury Travel Team and let them design your dream post-wedding vacation.
