In Flight
Day 2 -4:

This morning you will arrive in the city of Cape Town. Pick up your hire car and drive into the heart of the city to start you honeymoon. The next three days can be spent exploring the city. Why not visit some of the attractions such as the infamous Table Mountain, Robben Island, Bokaap or the V&A Waterfront. Take a scenic drive down the Cape Peninsula towards Cape Point to enjoy the view. At Boulders beach you can spend some time watching the Jackass Penguin Colony before returning into the city to enjoy some of the great restaurants and nightlife. If you prefer to take it easy on your honeymoon why not relax on Clifton or Camps Bay Beach.

Day 5 - 7:

Drive back to Cape Town airport and drop off your hire car. Catch you flight to the Eastern Cape Safari region near Port Elizabeth, and transfer to your Game Reserve. Your days on safari will start very early with a wake up call with tea or coffee, following which you will be off for your first exciting morning game drive. After breakfast spend the hottest part of the day relaxing in the shade or cooling off in the pool. Your second game drive of the day will take place in the late afternoon, another great time for spotting wildlife. As evening falls it is generally the rule that guests enjoy 'sundowners'. Nothing is better than having a cold drink while you watch the sun set over the African bush. You will return to the lodge for dinner and in many cases more drinks under the African night sky.

Day 8 - 14:

This morning you will transfer to Port Elizabeth airport and catch your flight to Johannesburg. From here catch your connection to Mauritius. On arrival in Mauritius you will be met at the airport with a warm Mauritian smile and privately transferred to your hotel. Over the next seven days you can partake in some of the free non-motorised watersports, go scuba diving or learn kite surfing as well as many other great activities. For those wanting to completely unwind and relax together you can take in a romantic duo spa treatment together, soak up the sun on the pristine white beaches or enjoy a special meal at one of the top gastronomic restaurants. As Mark Twain said 'Mauritius was made first and then heaven, and heaven was copied after Mauritius', the perfect place for your honeymoon. All of the properties we have suggested have a romantic atmosphere for you to enjoy together.

Day 15:

Today you will be picked up at your hotel and privately transferred back to the airport for your flight back to Heathrow.
