Cape Town Honeymoon

Romantic escapades through Cape Town

For happily-ever-after newlyweds, a Cape Town honeymoon provides a charming rendezvous, as unique as its Fynbos (the natural vegetation that grows in this region). The Mother City of South Africa, as she’s endearingly referred to, is punctuated with alluring wine lands, a grand mountain-scape, and a picturesque peninsula. Fastened on the south-western tip of Africa, she’ll rope you in, enthrall you with her beauty, and hold your heart prisoner. If it’s romance you’re after, you’ll find it round every corner.

While the rest of South Africa’s city hubs are typically all work and no play, Capetonians take the converse approach and seamlessly integrate the two. Let Cape Town melt your hearts while you get first-hand experience of what makes this city one of the world’s most beautiful destinations.

The Big 5 – top tourist spots

Table Mountain

Table Mountain, recently voted as one of the New7Wonders of Nature, is an iconic feature on Cape Town’s landscape. Flat topped and brimming with over 1,470 floral species, this unique landmark is an emphatic must on any traveler’s agenda. Hike up or make use of the cable car; the expansive view across the city is truly breathtaking. And, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous once you’ve summited, perhaps try abseiling down the mountain mesa.

Robben Island

Cape Town is rich in history, some of it not so pleasant – one of these hotspots is Robben Island. Inaugurated as a World Heritage Site and museum in 1997, this is where former South African statesman and world icon, Nelson Mandela, spent 18 years in prison. Traverse across the crisply cold Atlantic by ferry from the mainland to the island and embark on an emotional tour as you become privy to some of the atrocities enforced on political prisoners during apartheid.

Boulders Beach

Gigantic granite boulders dot the soft white sand of this beach; home to a colony of 3000 African Penguins, Boulders is a delightful spot to escape the city. Relax and enjoy a picnic or take a refreshing swim in the warm Indian Ocean waters, you’ll be sharing this secluded getaway with the endangered penguins who roam freely in this particularly popular tourist spot.

Cape Point

A nature reserve abundant in flora and fauna, this World Heritage Site offers a variety of activities for the discerning explorer. Summit Da Gama Peak, the highest point of Cape Point, and view from above the waters that have caused many a shipwreck; previously known as the Cape of Storms this coast line has a fierce reputation. Test your fitness levels and walk the long uphill to the old lighthouse, or enjoy a ride through the thick fynbos on the Flying Dutchman Funicular.

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

The award-winning Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, found on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain, is home to most of the indigenous flora of southern Africa. Celebrating its centenary in 2013, over 7000 species are cultivated on its grounds. Part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, and a World Heritage Site, Kirstenbosch is a modern day Garden of Eden, rich in biodiversity and a picture perfect spot for a Sunday stroll or an indulgent picnic.
