an african getaway…

July 21, 2011

According to trip advisor South Africa, in particular cape town, is named as the number one place to visit in 2011 in the Traveller’s Choice Best Destinations. As a fellow South African I can attest to how beautiful this country is with its diverse landscape and beautiful (mostly year round) sunshine which is why it also makes an excellent choice of honeymoon destination. Stay in a beachfront boutique hotel in the shadows of the magnificent table mountain with the beach just a stone’s throw away, take a trip to one of the many vineyards or take a meandering drive along the garden route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth taking in the beautiful scenery and beaches. 

For a bit more adventure, why not add in a safari in the Kruger region at one of the luxurious private game lodges like ulusaba private game reserve owned by Richard Branson. This is definitley a place I’m adding to my never-ending list of dream places I’d like to visit. It’s certainly not cheap but if your budget can stretch then you can enjoy two game drives and a walking safari each day as well as food, champagne and pampering in the most spectacular surroundings. There are so many options for safari in South Africa and many companies offer honeymoon package combinations with some even adding on a trip to Mauritius and an added bonus is that if you choose to have an autumn or winter wedding in the uk then you can head off down south to the South African summer.
