The Ideal Romantic Holiday Starts Here
South Africa is a wonderful destination for honeymoons and romantic holidays, especially for those who want to mix up the romance with outdoor pursuits such as game viewing and walking.
If it’s a bush luxury you are after, look no further than a lodge in a private reserve (for instance, Sabi Sands, Madikwe or Phinda), many of which have honeymoon suites and can arrange romantic gaslit dinners on a private terrace or deep in the bush.
Another popular venue for honeymoon and romantic breaks is the super-luxurious Sun City complex, which lies just two hours’ drive from Johannesburg and borders the excellent malaria-free Pilanesberg Game Reserve.
Ideally, pair up your bush break with a few days at a coastal resort such as Umhlanga Rocks and Ballito in KwaZulu-Natal, Plettenberg Bay and Knysna on the Garden Route, or even Cape Town itself.
Finally, no self-respecting foodie should miss out on the Cape Winelands, which host some of South Africa’s finest, most gracious and most romantic restaurants and wine-tasting venues. Most travellers opt for hiring one of Drive South Africa’s luxury vehicles, for there trip.
