Ideally, a honeymoon must be a time to calm down and relax after a stressful week of events and celebrations. It is also the best time to reflect before getting into normal routines and how to approach their marriage. Honeymoons are especially important in cultures with arranged marriages as they allow couples to understand each other before adjusting to the pressures of marital life. At GT Holidays, we specialize in creating honeymoon packages that are just right for you.

With over 11 official languages and people from various cultural and ethnic groups living harmoniously, South Africa truly lives up to its sobriquet, Rainbow Nation. The country has an equally diverse landscape, ranging from beaches and mountains to rolling grasslands and Mediterranean weather. It has over 10 UNESCO-designated World Heritage Sites, including Mapungubwe Cultural Landscape, Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape, and Robben Island.
The country has a moderate climate with mild winters and warm summers. The country’s long coastline influences its climate – while regions around Cape Peninsula have pleasant winters and clear-sky summers, places like Mpumalanga receive rain all year.
South Africa is a beautiful country, both manmade and natural. The country is home to the Big Five and hundreds of other endangered animals like the African wild dog and the pangolin. Where else, but in Africa, can you view whales from a shore and elephants grazing? The plant kingdom is equally varied, with over 158 species endemic to South Africa. Table Mountain is one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
South Africans are warm, friendly, and very kind. Don’t be surprised if you receive invitations to share a meal from complete strangers. Unlike some cultures where people are outwardly polite, South Africans are genuinely friendly but straightforward and likely to point out when you are wrong to your face.
Cape Town is a beautiful city and the adventure capital of the country. The stunning mountain ranges and ocean vistas allow plenty of activities for everyone. Depending on your budget and personality, you can choose from hiking and diving to cruising, paragliding, abseiling, kloofing, and shark-cage diving. Table Mountain is the city’s most popular attraction, having welcomed over 25 million tourists since it was opened to tourists in 1929. Besides forests, beaches, nature reserves, and Winelands, the city is home to fynbos, one of the most unique floral biomes in the world, with over 6000 endemic plants. You must also visit Cape Point for a dramatic ocean view. Bo-Kaap is equally unique, depicting the colorful history and culture of South Africa.
Johannesburg is a cosmopolitan city attracting millions of people from over the world and the country’s commercial center, employing over 12% of the country’s workforce.

Sun City is situated in the North West Region of South Africa, surrounded by mountains and famous for its hotels, casinos, gardens, and swimming pools. The city is about 90 km from Johannesburg, designed to resemble a lost city, with imitations of temple ruins, life-sized animal statues, and even an artificial beach with artificial waves. It was developed during the 1970s by businessman Sol Kerzner. With our South Africa honeymoon packages, guests can access the Valley of the Waves, the country’s most advanced water park.
Durban is a laidback town famous for its lovely beaches, cosmopolitan culture, world-class aquarium, and scrumptious food. The city is a surfer’s paradise, thanks to the powerful swells coming from Antarctica and the Indian Ocean, giving surfers consistent waves and high-quality breaks. Golden Mile Beach is great for beginners, while Cave Rock is ideal for advanced surfers. The food scene in Durban is equally impressive, with a mix of Indian, Zulu, and Continental cuisine. When in Durban, you mustn’t miss the bunny chow – a quarter loaf of bread that’s hollowed and filled with a curry of your choice. The braai, or traditional African barbecue, is equally popular.
The Kruger National Park was established in 1926 and is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It is home to almost all of Africa’s iconic animals, including elephants, lions, rhinos, buffalos, giraffes, leopards, and lions. The park covers over 2.2 million hectares and has five vegetation zones, ranging from semi-arid to thickly wooded areas. You could choose a guided day-long tour or stay in one of the many lodges inside the park. The best way to appreciate the park is to embark on a trip with no cages or pens to watch the animals go about their daily lives, hunting or avoiding being hunted.
Knysna is a beautiful city in the Western Cape and is home to picturesque locations. Some of the popular tourist destinations in the town include Knysna Heads, Knysna Lagoon, Brenton, and Knysna Waterfront. You could take a safari in Knysna National Park to learn how conservationists protect orphaned elephants or go on an otter trail in the Garden Route National Park. If you love hiking, don’t miss the Garden of Eden trail in the Garden Route National Park.
Port Elizabeth is nicknamed Friendliest City in South Africa. This port city is famous for its beaches, wildlife attractions, and war memorials. The city has a cosmopolitan small-town vibe where people greet each other with a smile and aren’t always in a hurry. The Addo Elephant National Park is perfect for a day trip where you can drive around to admire the park’s elephants and zebras. Similarly, the Kamma Game Park offers a mini safari experience with buffalos, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, and other animals. You could also cruise to get up and close to dolphins and orcas. And not to miss the multiple beaches, including Wells Estate Beach, Kings Beach, and Humewood Beach.
Thanks to its beautiful weather and varied landscape, you can opt for a romantic South Africa honeymoon tour package any time of the year. The country has four seasons – summer, fall, winter, and spring. December to February is summer and perfect for safari. March to May is autumn and ideal for exploring the Winelands and surfing. Winter lasts from June to August and is ideal for safari, especially the big cats and whale watching.
