Although most bridal couples dream of lazing around with their new Mr or Mrs on a tropical island destination somewhere for their honeymoon, there are others that love the adventure of exploring the many unique locations and activities that South Africa has to offer for honeymoons in winter. From pristine bushveld and wildlife to bustling cosmopolitan cities, South Africa really does have it all. While many may think that winter is against honeymooners, it’s actually the opposite! With more specials available because it’s not peak-season and a decidedly cooler climate and romantic features like crackling fires, winter honeymoons still ticks all the boxes for the ultimate holiday as newlyweds.
Bushveld honeymoons and other outdoor pursuits are popular in the winter season because of the cooler and drier climate, and what’s more memorable than spotting the Big Five with your hubby or wife and experiencing some thrilling sporting activity to set the tone for your future as an adventurous couple? Alternatively there are numerous overseas honeymoon packages available if your heart is set on a beach honeymoon!
Whether you opt for a local bushveld or international beach destination, expect to get the royal treatment because you’re on honeymoon, with special turndowns, candlelit dinners, flower-strewn bubble baths and much more!
