South Africa Honeymoons
South Africa Honeymoons
Honeymoons evoke a sense of excitement, peace and of course - romance. After the stress of planning a wedding every newlywed deserves their own perfect honeymoon and we think that means letting someone else worry about the details so you can focus on pure relaxation!
When a couple reaches out to discuss honeymoon destinations it isn’t long before we bring up Southern Africa. In our books Southern Africa has everything you would want for an utterly perfect honeymoon destination. If you want cosmopolitan flare and captivating culture head to Cape Town and the lush Winelands. To be immersed in nature, you can’t get better than a Big 5 safari. If the beach is more your speed, spend your time on an island off the coast of Mozambique, always within a stone’s throw of the glittering waters of the Indian ocean. Or, in true Outside GO style, combine all these destinations into a once in a lifetime honeymoon adventure.
To sweeten the appeal even more we’ve gone and collected a series of specials that we’re offering to our honeymoon travelers - read on to see how you can have the honeymoon of your dreams at three of our favorite South African properties.
LA CLÉ DES MONTAGNES
Honeymoon Special: Stay three nights and pay for two!
You’ll find La Cle des Montagnes in the verdant Winelands of the Cape Peninsula, just a couple of hours from the hub of Cape Town. The Franschhoek valley is known for its exquisite wines, delectable cuisine, and accommodations that perfectly marry charm and luxury. La Cle is no exception to that standard.
At La Cle you’ll be hosted in a delightfully designed private villa, thoughtfully created with both beautiful private rooms and inviting living spaces. Cool blue pools invite you to soak, landscaped gardens are the perfect spot for an afternoon picnic, and enjoying a local-style ‘braais’ for dinner are all possibilities for spending your time here. When you aren’t blissfully relaxing at the property the country’s best restaurants, finest wines, and beautiful art galleries are right at your fingertips. Borrow a complimentary bicycle and cycle the few blocks into town where you can wine and dine to your heart’s content.
Honeymoon Special: For stays of 2 nights or more, enjoy a 50% discount for one partner!
The word safari evokes a sense of the old world and brings to mind classic adventurers, canvas tents, and unbridled wilderness.
At Tanda Tula Safari Camp classic old-world safaris have shaped the creation and design of the property. You’ll stay in canvas walled tents where you’ll drift to sleep with the sounds of the African bush as your lullaby. You’ll feel disconnected from the rest of the world, yet deeply in tune with nature - that is the magic of a safari.
Each day you’ll explore the surrounding private nature reserve where the Big 5 (elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion, and leopard) roam. Twice a day you will head out in custom open-sided vehicles to explore the landscape with some of the area’s most knowledgeable guides. You’ll also have the chance to stretch your legs on guided walks where you can try your hand at tracking while you observe the smaller side of the wildlife.
Honeymoons can’t just be about adventure though. When you stay at Tanda Tula on your honeymoon you’ll have an incredible romantic dinner served right on your private deck by the Tanda Tula chef and his team. A private dinner under the African stars is not one you’ll soon forget.
AZURA BENGUERRA + AZURA QUILALEA
Honeymoon Special: For stays of 5 nights or more, enjoy a 50% discount for one partner!
Just off the coast of Mozambique you’ll find two island retreats ready to welcome you for an utterly exquisite honeymoon experience. These unspoiled islands are the makings of honeymoon dreams and their azure waters and white sand beaches are just waiting for you!
Azura Benguerra and Azura Quilalea are other-worldly paradises and you’d be hard pressed to find a more romantic destination to celebrate your new married life. Exclusivity is the name of the game here. Benguerra has only 20 villas while Quilalea boasts only nine. You will be just steps from the ocean, but far enough away from other guests to allow you to escape into your own private world.
Venture away from the luxury of your villas to experience the island way of life. Depending on which property you choose you may spend your days snorkelling in the Bazaruto Archipelago, settling in for a picnic on the shores of a deserted island, enjoying a dune climb, trying your hand at deep sea fishing, visiting local villages, or taking to the skies for a scenic helicopter ride.
On these islands you can curate your days to be as relaxing or action-packed as you wish. Your honeymoon should reflect your interests and Azura is the perfect destination for just that.
