Ker & Downey's signature South Africa luxury honeymoon begins within the lavish comforts of Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge in the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve. Total exclusivity, private decks with sparkling pools, and Big Five game drives complete the feeling of romance in the wild.

Next, continue your South Africa luxury honeymoon in the Western Cape at the intimate La Clé Lodge in Franschhoek. Explore the Cape Winelands with a private guide who will offer insider access to the best wineries, cellars, and restaurants. Or enjoy a romantic picnic after a leisurely horseback or e-bike ride through the countryside.

Pro-Tip: Not a drinker? Don't let the Winelands' name fool you. There are plenty of alcohol-free activities here, including chocolate, olive oil, or cheese tasting; hiking and biking; garden tours; and privately guided art and history walks. 

Next, continue your luxury South Africa honeymoon with a scenic coastal drive to the chic and intimate Birkenhead House in Hermanus. This hotel's privileged location on a clifftop overlooking Walker Bay allows for unparalleled shore-based whale watching during migration season. Meanwhile, the hotel is also an excellent base from which to explore the Hermanus region. Adventure seekers can head out on a great white shark cage dive or take sea kayaks out from the old harbor. Food and wine enthusiasts can visit Hemel en Aarde Valley for a wine tasting or go mussel picking with a head chef. Or, guests can remain on the grounds and soak in the gorgeous views after a delectable spa treatment.

Finally, romance ignites in Cape Town with a lovely boutique accommodation. Renowned for its 15,000-bottle wine cellar and impressive Contemporary Art Gallery, staying at the exclusive Ellerman House enhances any South Africa honeymoon. Conclude your experience with a full-day excursion through Cape Town and the Peninsula, including a visit to the stunning Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.
