Highlights of South Africa and Mozambique's beautiful beaches

Combine the city, bush, and beach on one epic honeymoon (or 'just because' Southern Africa romantic safari). And while this itinerary definitely delivers on the romance and adventure front, it won’t break the bank, especially with generous discounts for the bride.

You’ll start by exploring sophisticated Cape Town, followed by a unique hop-on/hop-off tram tour in the Winelands. From here, fly to the renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve in the Kruger for some game viewing – and your own suite with a private plunge pool – before finishing on an idyllic stretch of beach on mainland Mozambique.
