South Africa is a perfect destination for a honeymoon!
Showing the single result
The Garden Route & the Cape Winelands are iconic South African destinations. However some places are rather crowded and, to be honest, more tourist traps than fantastic experiences. In this itinerary, we’ve excluded these and focussed on the things that these icons do best: exceptional nature experiences, good food & wine and unusual wildlife. You will explore both well-known destinations and hidden gems. All accommodation is 3-4 star, and picked for its unique locations as well as comfort.
One of the few examples of primeval forest left in South Africa. Noted for its rare trees. Bushpig, red and blue and grey duiker, banded and slender mongoose and velvet monkey occur. Both species of mamba and python are to be found. Trails through the forest are conducted by the Umhlanga centre of the Wildlife Society. This is a private reserve and permission to visit must be obtained.
There are many ways to see the Cape Winelands, with its brilliant colours, craggy mountains and maniucured vineyards, but none as exciting and unique as riding in a hot air balloon.
Bordering on the forests and plantations of Magoebaskloof and the Woodbush Forest Reserve, Graceland Eco Retreat offers guests the opportunity to enjoy a unique type of Mountain Bushveld. The Retreat overlooks the Kudu River Valley with views all the way to Mooketsi and the mountain range beyond.
