Back in March we introduced our first ‘’Winter Offer’’, which was went down very well. So since then we have launched three more offers to entice you to think out of the box.
Does South Africa have a winter?
Believe it or not, South Africa does have a ‘winter’ season. Though not like you may be used to. From May to September, the days are cooler and yes, there’s a small chance of rain down in the Cape.
But the temperatures aren’t really that bad. Down in the Cape the days are a pleasant 17 to 22 C. Whilst at night a warming fire-place just needs a good bottle of red wine to be cracked open. Plus the temperatures start to head upwards by late August and September. Not lying on the beach sort of weather. But wonderful for sight-seeing and being active all day without collapsing with heat exhaustion. You can get into that top Winelands restaurant without needing to book 3 months ahead. You won’t be jostling the crowds in the Waterfront. Or trying to avoid the endless selfie-snappers on Table Mountain.
Everyone’s idea of a romantic weekend away is different. Some would love nothing more than to escape the big city lights and head as far into the mountains as possible. Whilst others are thrilled by the idea of luxurious spoils close to the goings-on of urban life. Whatever your preference, here’s my take on some of the most romantic hotels in Cape Town and the nearby Winelands.
Planning your Honeymoon? – Where to in South Africa
To some degree “best honeymoon destinations” in South Africa is a misnomer. Why should people want to go to a different sort of hotel or destination, just because they are on honeymoon? 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…
South Africa Honeymoon Safaris – Sand & Safari
As we’ve mentioned in our honeymoon pages, South Africa does lend itself to bush and beach honeymoons. Pristine beaches can be combined with some truly romantic and top-class game reserves such as Phinda Rock Lodge or Thanda Game Reserve in northern KwaZulu Natal.
