Cape Town is South Africa’s stunning capital and serves as the perfect destination as a starting point for an unbelievable Big 5 Safari honeymoon as well as the option to combine whale watching in Hermanus and stopping in the gorgeous Cape winelands such as Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. There are many things to do that can occupy your honeymoon in Cape Town, which is positioned on South Africa’s southwest coast with the majestic Table Mountain backing it, and the iconic V&A Waterfront edging the shores. Spot the penguins on Boulders Beach, dining and shopping on the waterfront, hiking tours and Table Mountain Cableway.

One of South Africa’s most iconic landmarks – Table Mountain National Park stretches from the north of Cape Town, all the way to the Cape of Good Hope. If you’re an active couple, why not explore one of 350 hiking trails that lead to the top while on your honeymoon in Cape Town. Most hiking trails up Table Mountain are free of charge except for the Kirstenbosch Garden, Cape Point and Boulders. For an adrenaline rush, grab your GoPro and abseil Table Mountain where stepping off the edge will give you a thrill at 1000 metres above sea level into pure vertical space – look down if you dare! If you’re not so brave, you can opt to take the Cable Car to enjoy the views from the comfort of your carriage as it soars its way up the mountain, taking memorable selfies along the way.

Home to a penguin colony, a visit to Boulders Beach is a must-do on your Cape Town honeymoon. It’s one of the capital’s most visited beaches and is the only place in the world where you get this close to African penguins, get your camera out as they waddle on the sugar white beach and bathe in the waters. The standard fee to go to Boulders Beach is R152 for adults and R76 for children.

A visit to Robben Island is a must. Known for its wretched history, where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years of his 27-year prison sentence on Robben Island. Once a trip that was one to be feared, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is on the list of most travellers visiting Cape Town. A tour of Robben Island compromises of historical sites such as the leper graveyard, the lime quarry where political prisoners were forced to work, army and navy bunkers and the Maximum Security Prison. Ending the tour with the most anticipated part of the tour – a visit to Nelson Mandela’s cell.

Cape Town is an excellent starting point for an unbelievable South Africa Multi-Centre honeymoon. Begin with 3-4 nights in Cape Town, where you will both have plenty of time to enjoy all the beauty that is Cape Town. From Table Mountain to Robben Island and Boulders Beach. After, visit the stunning Stellenbosch wine lands for a 2-night stay to enjoy verdant vineyards where daily wine experiences can be had. We recommend a night stay in Hermanus, which is famous for whale watching. Followed by 3 nights in Knysna, which is in excellent location on the world-famous Garden Route. Bring your South Africa honeymoon to an end with a 3 night safari at Pumba Private Game Reserve, which is in the malaria-free Eastern Cape offering daily game drives and private pool chalets.
