Starlit South Africa: The Dream Luxury Honeymoon

15 days from £5,155 per person

Your honeymoon: where memories that last a lifetime are made and the trip that has to be nothing short of perfect. Thankfully, South Africa is filled with the kind of travel gems that will make your honeymoon shimmer. Unforgettably romantic nature, some of the most luxurious lodgings in the world and truly exceptional service – it ticks all these boxes and more.

Your first stop should be Cape Town, where you can watch the Atlantic and Indian Ocean clash at Cape Head viewpoint. Soak up the atmosphere of this bustling and vibrant city – treat yourself at the boutiques, share seafood platters and visit glitzy Camps Bay. Don't miss sunset at the Cape View Clifton, Cape Town's sexiest boutique hotel; a bubbly Jacuzzi on your balcony awaits.

Once you've got to grips with the city, whizz off on a wine safari of the Cape with a scenic private helicopter transfer from Cape Town to the lush and affluent Constantia Valley, a culinary and wine hotspot. Enjoy a delightful day tour of the area’s new-age boutique wineries and historic Cape Dutch-style estates, toasting your trip with some award-winning Sauvignon Blanc. 

-- For couples with a nose for adventure we recommend an extra night in Cape Town to experience our ‘Wake up on Table Mountain’ tour. Hike up to the summit of Table Mountain with a private guide (your bags will be transported for you) and bed down in a comfortable stone cottage with spectacular views over the Cape Flats to False Bay. Enjoy a hot shower and a traditional braai at your lodgings and a continental breakfast cooked for you both at sunrise. --

Next, travel to the West Coast. Take a guided tour and hike scenic coastal walks surrounded by a rolling carpet of wild flowers and discover ancient San rock art sites. Bed down at enchanting wellness retreat Bushman's Kloof – a couple's al fresco massage at sunset is recommended before a candlelit dinner under the diamond-studded sky.

The Garden Route is the next stay on your honeymoon. Hermanus offers whale-watching in season and there are also some high-quality wine producers on the nearby Hemel-en-Aarde wine route. Treat yourself to luxurious beach pad Birkenhead House over Walker Bay – book a sea view suite and admire the incredible Indian Ocean framed in its vast windows.

Lastly, indulge yourselves at one of South Africa's most captivating regions – the private Sabi Sands game reserve. This is safari at its absolute best: animal sightings, including the elusive leopard, are aplenty amongst the two rivers that snake their way through this rich African landscape. As if this wasn't enough you'll stay at the dreamily romantic Dulini Leadwood Lodge. Expect secluded stone thatched casitas with private pools overlooking the humming African bush and forward-thinking service where your every whim will be catered for.

* Special Offer: This tour includes 1 free night at Bushman's Kloof (certain dates excluded) and a special Honeymoon discount at Dulini Leadwood.

I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up that I was not happy.
Ernest Hemingway

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
