With its excellent network of wide, open roads, magnificent scenery and sound infrastructure, South Africa ticks all the boxes for a safe but adventurous road trip. This 14-day journey has all the ingredients for the perfect honeymoon for those who like to set their own pace. From the magnificent coastline of the Western Cape to the rolling beauty of the Winelands, you travel at your own pace along the Whale Coast before being whisked away by plane to the incredible beauty and romance of the vast Kalahari.
Begin with Tintswalo Atlantic, perched between dramatic mountains and the Atlantic Ocean outside Cape Town, where you explore the many attractions and spectacular scenery of this unique city. You then drive into the Cape Winelands, where you are embraced by the beguilingly romantic atmosphere of the historic Babylonstoren estate. Set in the heart of the Cape’s gastronomic and viticultural capital of Franschhoek, you are immersed in an atmosphere of sublime indulgence, where exotic chickens and organic gardens blend into a rural idyll.
Next, you continue to Grootbos, perched on a hillside overlooking Walker Bay where southern right whales frolic in the crystal-clear waters where two oceans meet. Your final destination is the luxurious Tswalu Lodge, where the dreamy landscapes of the Kalahari and its incredible wildlife, like black-maned lions, will steal your heart forever.
