A wedding and honeymoon in South Africa is unforgettable. Its
beautiful weather and friendly people are enjoyable at a variety of
romantic wedding and honeymoon settings; from forests on the Garden

Kruger National Park and surrounds. Cape Town is another beautiful
wedding or honeymoon destination, perhaps even the best due to its
variety of attractions, cultures and facilities. There are various
hotels, lodges and holiday resorts in South Africa that provide
unique wedding and honeymoon venues.
Wedding and Honeymoon things to see and do
A wedding or honeymoon couple in South Africa will find many intriguing things to see and do. In Cape Town, visit the world-famous Table Mountain or Nelson Mandela's Robben Island. Travelling through the Garden Route, the Knysna waterfront and lagoon or the Tsitsikamma Rainforest are worth exploring, as are some of the many coastal dive sites. The water gets warmer further up the coast and there are lovely beach towns to visit in the Transkei and KwaZulu-Natal. And of course, the Kruger National Park is undoubtedly a truly African 'Big 5' experience!
