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 at Kensington Place in 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 – a gourmet delight. 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.

Day to day

On arrival at Cape Town International Airport, you collect your rental car and take the drive to Kensington Place, which is located in one of Cape Town’s most prestigious enclaves high on the slopes of Table Mountain. Kensington Place is a true boutique hotel with only eight individually decorated rooms, exceptional service and outstanding attention to detail.

The city of Cape Town and its magnificent Peninsula offer many attractions in breath-taking surroundings – it is no surprise that the city is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in the world. Dramatic mountains plunge down to beautiful white sand beaches dotted along the coastline, and picturesque villages nestle in their folds.

The vibrant V&A Waterfront is a bustling precinct of shops, bars and restaurants overlooking the busy working harbour and docks, and alongside it the city centre of Cape Town sits cradled in the bowl of Table Mountain. The rotating cable car to the top offers incredible 360-degree views as you ascend and, once you reach the level plateau, a thousand metres above the sea, you can follow a network of paths that lead to a series of viewpoints.

Here you can look down over the Twelve Apostles mountain range at Camps Bay and Clifton beaches, over Table Bay to the notorious Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated, across False Bay to the mountains of the wine country and southwards to the end of the continent at Cape Point.
