A wedding in Africa can be any number of magical, romantic places: on the edge of Victoria Falls, deep in the African bush, on a tropical beach in Mauritius, or surrounded by Cape vineyards… it is always a romantic and intimate experience.
We’ve arranged many weddings all over Southern Africa. All of our weddings have been tailor-made, not a mass-market package. And such ceremonies cost far less than a wedding at home, allowing you more to spend on a memorable honeymoon. Arrangements are generally informal and relaxed, whether the ceremony is civil or religious and the party is just the two of you, or with family and friends.
Planning your Honeymoon? – Where to in South Africa

If lazing on a golden beach for more than an hour leaves you pacing up and down the sand and seeking some relief from the boredom, then a straight beach honeymoon is not going to cut it for you.
Unlike many other African or Indian Ocean destinations, there are many different types of honeymoons to enjoy in South Africa, and that’s what this post is all about…

Here we suggest activities that will add some action and adrenalin to your honeymoon…
