SA voted 6th best honeymoon destination in the world (again!)

When the wedding bells ring, couples set their sights on dream honeymoon destinations and South Africa is one of them!

South Africa (June 5, 2024) – South Africa is for the lovebirds! Our beautiful country is once again in the Top 10 of the world’s best honeymoon destinations according to Big 7 Travel.

South Africa took 6th place on the list of 20, joining some of the world’s most romantic destinations.

The typical honeymoon is usually pictured as an island getaway to a white sand beach with rose petal bedding and some form of water sports. We are not against this idea at all, but if you can have the varied environments of South Africa, why wouldn’t you?

South Africa is home to beautiful white sandy beaches and much more. You can explore the Karoo and desert, climb mountains, hike through forests, watch sunsets in the bush, sip cocktails in hot air balloons, take elephant rides and watch seals frolicking in the waves. If you can dream it, you can certainly do it in South Africa with your partner.

Some of the winning factors included the number of ‘adult only’ hotels, the number of 5-star hotels, the cost of wine or a three-course meal, the types of activities and attractions available and the availability of honeymoon packages.

“From the vast vineyards to the safaris: South Africa is spectacularly romantic. The country caters well to honeymooners with adults-only hotels and honeymoon packages, allowing lovebirds to experience an extra special trip. Whether you’re looking out for the Big 5 in the Kruger National Park or sipping fresh wine on the Cape Town waterfront, you’ll be well taken care of. South Africa can also adapt to your price range, with a wide range of budget-friendly and luxurious experiences. Those on a budget won’t feel left out either: bottles of local wine cost around £4, while a three-course meal for two costs an average of £30.”

For international honeymooners, traveling to South Africa has proven to be a very affordable option, providing access to more luxurious options.
