Luxury Cape Town Winelands and Kalahari Honeymoon

Inspirational safari honeymoon to South Africa

Spoil yourself with this utterly indulgent trip combining Cape Town, the Cape Winelands and the southern Kalahari Desert. You will begin with a stay in Cape Town at arguably one of the city's most exclusive boutique hotels, Ellerman House, a historic Edwardian-style mansion, offering exquisite views of the Atlantic Ocean, the city and Lion's Head. Clifton's sheltered beaches are within walking distance while local attractions such as Table Mountain, Camps Bay, and V&A Waterfront are 10 minutes by car. A stay at Delaire Graff Wine Estate in Stellenbosh is next.

Surrounded by sweeping views across stunning vineyards and mountains, this is one of the world's leading wine destinations and luxury accommodations. The incredible location provides a sense of escape and privacy for its guests. Finally, you will be transported to a completely different world, Tswalu Motse in the private Private Tswalu Kalahari reserve is situated in a remote corner of northern South Africa. Here, almost 250,000 acres of private wilderness is for the exclusive use of Tswalu guests, who, for complete privacy and exclusivity, all receive a private vehicle, guide, and tracker. Throughout the trip you will be privately road transferred and flown by light aircraft to the Kalahari.
