A beautiful honeymoon combining wildlife, beach resort and culture
Kick married life off in the finest possible style by heading to South Africa and Mauritius and enjoy three truly iconic experiences – the wonderful city of Cape Town, a safari in the wildlife haven of the Greater Kruger area before relaxing on the beautiful white sand beaches of Mauritius.
Your adventure of a lifetime starts with an overnight flight to Cape Town, seeing you arrive bright and early in to the Mother City, to enjoy an elongated stay in one of the World’s most desirable cities. Enjoy superb food, warm sunshine, a range of activities and iconic experiences as you explore the streets, beaches and attractions that spring up everywhere you look. We can help arrange any activities you are looking to do, book restaurants and time with some truly outstanding local guides for unique experiences. Fly from Cape Town up to the Kruger area, where we will ensure you are met and transferred to your safari lodge for some time to explore arguably South Africa’s most renowned tourist destination. After your safari you will head back to Johannesburg, spending a night there before flying way out in to the Indian Ocean for the final leg of your trip, a few nights relaxing on the beautiful island of Mauritius. From Mauritius you will be able to fly directly back to London, hopefully relaxed and refreshed after and exhilarating trip.
This trip includes some of Africa’s finest boutique properties and offers access to a unique range of experiences that will make for a truly wonderful Honeymoon.

Day 1: Cape Town awaits
This evening you will be flying overnight to Cape Town.
Day 2: Arrival in to Cape Town
Land in to Cape Town this morning where you will be met and assisted with immigration formalities before being transferred to the wonderful Kensington Place, a modern boutique hotel on the lower slopes of Table Mountain, with easy access to the city and all of the surrounding areas. After the long overnight flight today will be at leisure for you to relax and perhaps do some gentle exploration of the surrounding area. There is an excellent restaurant at Kensington Place, so no need to head out for lunch if you don’t feel like it!
Days 3-6: Adventures in Cape Town
With so much to see and do both in the city and in the surrounding area, there can be few, if any, better cities across the planet to start your Honeymoon in than Cape Town. Attractions such as Table Mountain, Robben Island, trips to the Cape Peninsula to see the penguins at Boulders Beach and walks through the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are of course high on many visitors’ agendas and are definite must-dos when in Cape Town. However, if you are looking for a slightly different way to explore the city then we have access to some amazing guides who will show you Cape Town in a totally different light. For those looking to be active, why not spend a day biking the trails of Table Mountain with an 11-time South African National Mountain biking champion? Or head out on a day trip around the Cape Peninsula, eschewing the crowds and heading to hidden beaches to paddleboard past penguins. We can also arrange specialist foodie tours to learn more about the unique and delicious local cuisine – Cape Malay.
Day 7: On to the bush
From the city you will be transferred back to Cape Town airport today to catch the morning flight up to Hoedspruit airport, on the edge of the Kruger National Park. A guide will be waiting to transfer you in to the adjacent Timbavati Game Reserve where you will be spending 3 nights at the beautiful Ngala Safari Lodge. Wonderfully styled, with a blend of modern and traditional touches, this is the ideal spot for a Honeymoon safari. Settle in to the lodge and enjoy an afternoon relaxing by the pool before afternoon tea is served on the deck. You will then meet your guide and fellow safari-goers for a quick introduction and then head out on your first game drive – a chance to start spotting Africa’s fabled Big 5.
Days 8 & 9: On safari from Ngala
Spend your days at Ngala enjoying the amazing game viewing that the Timbavati is renowned for, all in the company of your expert local guide. The programme here includes morning and afternoon game drives, lasting around 4 hours at a time. Such is the knowledge, skill and determination of your guide that you will get some truly amazing wildlife sightings. Big cat sightings are perhaps what the Timbavati is best-known for, but with wonderful elephant sightings, a strong population of wild dog and plenty of cheetah there is amazing variety in your experiences. In between your game drives relax in the salubrious surroundings of the lodge, sit by the pool and soak up the sunshine, enjoy outstanding cuisine and interact with the charming staff who make Ngala such a wonderful place to spend your time.
Day 10: Johannesburg
Before departing the bush there will be chance for one final morning game drive, which will be followed by a farewell breakfast on the deck of the lodge. You will then be transferred back to Hoedspruit airport where you will catch the lunchtime flight to Johannesburg. From the airport take the shuttle bus to the Peermont D’Oreale Grande Hotel where you will be spending the night. The afternoon is at leisure to relax, with a lovely pool area on offer at the hotel and plenty of excellent restaurants within the adjacent casino complex.
Day 11: To Mauritius
This morning will see an early start for breakfast and then taking the shuttle bush back to the airport to catch the morning flight across to Mauritius, landing there in the middle of the afternoon. You will be met at the airport and transferred to the East coast of the island where you will be spending the next 5 nights at Constance Prince Maurice, a wonderful resort for you to round off your Honeymoon in.
Days 12-15: Chilling on the beach
Mauritius has long been regarded as the perfect spot to simply sit back, relax and do as little as you please – a sentiment we certainly aren’t going to argue with! With beautiful white sand beaches and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean merely steps from the hotel, the temptation is to spend much time there, although the swimming pool area is especially alluring and another popular spot to relax. Keen golfers can enjoy a round or two on the hotel’s two excellent golf courses, whilst the watersports centre offers the chance to be as active as you please with a range of activities on offer. Three restaurants, three bars and a well-stocked wine cellar mean there is a huge range of dining options available to you, all of which helps to make Prince Maurice one of the best hotel options on all of Mauritius.
Day 16: The journey home
Enjoy the bulk of the day at leisure before being collected and transferred back to the airport for the overnight flight back to London Gatwick.
