Inspirational safari honeymoon to South Africa

Intimate and exclusive, the finest accommodation and service throughout, this is one for a special occasion. Indulge in fine wines and haute cuisine; elegant lodgings and some of the most spectacular views and scenery South Africa has to offer. First a stay at the elegant, Edwardian mansion Ellerman House, with undoubtedly Cape Town's best views. This boutique hotel is close to Cape Town attractions and an iconic showcase of South Africa's finest hospitality, cuisine, art, wine and leisure.

Head off then to the Cape Winelands area in search of the finest Pinotage, surround yourself in total opulence in the form of La Residence hotel, perfectly situated in the stunning Franschhoek Valley. Your final stop; of course, the most luxurious of lodges in the famous Sabi Sands Game Reserve, bordering the Kruger National Park. Set along the banks of the Sand River, Singita Boulders Lodge is renowned for its big game sightings, in particular big cats. A true beacon of splendour and exclusivity, coupled with some of the best game viewing in Southern Africa, this is a truly first-class safari.
