13 Days
Tailor-Made Tour
Big Cat Safari

A very stylish honeymoon indeed and an exceptional start to married life. With private chauffeured transfers and virtually fully inclusive throughout, this five-star itinerary begins with a top beach hotel in Hermanus on the Cape coast  where you can relax by the pool, stroll through the fynbos flora, and enjoy the marine environment. In season (June to October) you may not even have to leave the hotel in order to see southern right whales cavorting before your eyes. Enjoy a taste of Cape Town’s manifold delights before going on safari in Kruger’s Makalali and Sabi Sands Private Game Reserves based at two luxury safari lodges with extra-romantic twists such as a private sleep-out and bush bath under the African skies. Please be warned: we will all be very, very envious should you choose to book this itinerary (but don’t let that spoil it for you).
