Highlights of South Africa and Mozambique's beautiful beaches

Combine city, bush, and beach on one epic honeymoon (or "just because") on this romantic southern Africa luxury safari. And while this itinerary definitely delivers on the romance and adventure front, it won’t break the bank, especially with generous discounts for the bride.

You’ll start by exploring sophisticated Cape Town, followed by a unique hop-on/hop-off tram tour in the Cape Winelands. From here, fly to Timbavati Private Nature Reserve next to Greater Kruger for some game viewing—and your own suite with a private plunge pool—before finishing on an idyllic stretch of beach on mainland Mozambique.
