Thinking of doing something exotic for your honeymoon? Instead of doing what’s expected of new couples and head to an all inclusive somewhere on a tropical island how about doing something more adventurous and unexpected?
If you’re wedding is planned for later this year, you may want to check out the natural wonders and rich culture of South Africa. Our winter is their summer and right now it’s the perfect climate (think Southern California weather!) to enjoy! Don't just think of South Africa as a place to just visit to go on a safari. There’s so much more than that! South Africa is a land full of amazing and diverse experiences that go far and beyond the just traditional safari excursion. Described as the 'Adventure Capital of the World', South Africa is very affordable and it offers victors with a unique natural beauty, world-class infrastructure and conveniences, great weather, a rich history with diverse experiences, amazing wildlife and adventure, and above all responsible tourism.
Although when people think of Africa and think of the ‘Big 5’ they think of lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes and rhinoceros, for a honeymoon vacation think these ‘Big 5’ instead; adventure and exploration, culture and heritage, safari and nature, entertainment and lifestyle and of course romance and relaxation. Not sure where to start? Plan your vacation on the Eastern Cape of South Africa. It is a place of rugged beauty with a pristine coastline, virgin bush and sub-tropical forests exist as though untouched by time. If you do want to take a safari excursion, the Eastern Cape is the home of the original ‘Big 5’. The Eastern Cape boasts a colorful assortment of fauna and flora, an abundance of bird life and stretches from the snow-capped peaks of the southern Drakensberg to the lush forests of Tsitsikamma and flanked by the Indian Ocean.
Regarded as South Africa’s ‘wild’ province and described as the province of extremes the Eastern Cape also features a rich history of early settlers and kings and is also the birthplace of Nelson Mandela.
