You begin your 15-day ‘honeymoon holiday’ in Africa’s fairest city of Cape Town where you stay at a lavish guesthouse close to some of the city’s major attractions, yet far enough away from the hubbub to afford you some quiet time. With spectacular mountain and city views, Four Rosmead is an idyllic and elegant base from which to explore the Mother City and the surrounding Winelands while providing a sanctuary for relaxation.
You then head to Garonga Safari Camp, which is situated in the greater Makalali Conservancy west of the Kruger National Park. When not on a 4x4 in pursuit of wildlife on this Big 5 reserve, enjoy catching up with your partner in this camp that epitomises romance. Take baths while immersed not only in bubbles but also the splendid wilderness, or indulge in a couple’s massage. Dine by candlelight on your suite’s secluded patio or sleep-out in a private tree house for a night with nobody around for miles.
After a night’s stayover at the City Lodge in Johannesburg, your next port of call is Dugong Beach Lodge, which is set on a secluded beach in Mozambique. The emphasis here is on water sports but you can of course do nothing but sunbathe all day on the white-sand beach and take romantic sunset walks along the palm-fringed shore.
