Popping the question during the month of love or saying “I do” this year? It’s not just the big white wedding you’ll need to start thinking about. Now’s the time to start pondering your ultimate honeymoon destination, too.  

With (literally) a world of options to choose from, where do you even begin? Our favourites – based on your unique “couple personality” – are below.

You love: A well-balanced getaway – a decent mix of both the luxurious and the down-to-earth. 

Your number one priority is: Creating lasting memories in a beautiful place.  

You should go to… CAPE TOWN and the KRUGER NATIONAL PARK! 

Why go on just one honeymoon when you can go on two? Treat yourselves to a combo honeymoon with a few days spent lapping up the luxury in South Africa’s Mother City, followed by a few days spent reconnecting with nature in the bushveld.  

The Cape Milner awaits to cater to the luxe-seeker in you, with its king-sized beds, private balconies with views of Table Mountain and its sparkling swimming pool and deck for sundowners and good summer vibes.  

Hamiltons Tented Camp gets you closer to nature without sacrificing any of your creature comforts. Settle into a private luxury elevated tent and savour quiet romantic moments overlooking the Nwaswitsontso River.

You love: Peace, quiet and having it be “just the two of you”.    

Your number one priority is: Spending quality time with each other away from the city’s noise.  

You should go to… WELGEVONDEN GAME RESERVE!  

When you’re looking for somewhere just as secluded as it is exceptional, you can’t go wrong with a safari inside Welgevonden Game Reserve, a 38,200-ha game reserve in Limpopo’s Waterberg District.  

Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway is an intimate haven amidst kudu-berry and velvet–leaf bushwillows on the tip of a magnificent gorge overlooking the Sterkstroom River. Here, you’ll enjoy a stay inside one of eight guest rooms with a private dining area and the chance to catch sight of the Big 5.  

You love: Staying active and exploring new destinations together.   

Your number one priority is: Keeping busy and trying new things mixed in with lots of romance.  

You should go to… THE PANORAMA ROUTE  

A hiker’s mecca bubbling over with opportunities for adventure, the Panorama Route is always a huge hit amongst thrill-seeking honeymooners.  

Angels View is an ideal base for your explorations, ready to pamper you and help you wind down in between your exciting activities. It’s situated on the doorstep of the Panorama Route if you fancy a scenic road trip, and has three swimming pools, a wedding chapel (how about a destination wedding in combination with your honeymoon?), a gym and a spa. 

You love: Authenticity and appreciating life’s simple pleasures. 

Your number one priority is: Taking part in unforgettable, authentic experiences in your chosen destination.  

You should go to… THE GREATER MABULA PRIVATE GAME RESERVE.  

This game reserve in South Africa’s Limpopo province (a short drive from the ever-popular town of Bela-Bela) is home to a broad array of birds and wildlife. Get ready for classic safari activities, along with a few unique encounters – think quad biking, nature walks, stargazing drives and dam picnics.  

Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp is a homely, unpretentious hideaway ready to welcome you. The camp is celebrated for its authentic South African bush cuisine and its luxuriously appointed elevated tents (five in total), each with a full bathroom and private deck overlooking the bushveld.  

Make the most of this special time in your life and enjoy every Extraordinary moment. Book your honeymoon now!
