The Most Romantic Destinations in South Africa

South Africa is as big as it is diverse and coming up with an itinerary to maximize the time that you will spend exploring it might seem to be a daunting task.

Luckily for you, here’s a list of some of the best places in South Africa to visit this year in order to enjoy the great romance that this land has to offer. Enjoy!

Romantic Destinations in South Africa #1: Cape Town

Cape Town is the quintessential honeymoon destination of all of South Africa and it isn’t hard to see why. Beautiful beaches surrounded by the majestic Table Mountain make Cape Town a dreamy experience to all of your senses.

Take your loved one on a stroll at the beach or better yet, hike together to the top of the Table Mountain to make your holiday a very special one to remember throughout the ages my friends!

Open that bottle of South African red wine and enjoy the best sunset of your life.

Romantic Destinations in South Africa #2: Durban

Durban’s tropical climate makes this cosmopolitan city a very popular one for tourists. Visit the incredible golden mile and behold the Marine parade pools and beaches on a Segway (or even better, a bicycle).

Fancy a little bit of urban exploring? How about a visit to the markets of Wariwck, the largest informal street market of the entire country? I bet you’ll find many interesting items to purchase yo!

And yes, if you want to get away from the city life, there’s no better option than the Uhmlanga Lagoon Nature Reserve to enjoy the breath of the wild in company of your loved one.

Romantic Destinations in South Africa #3: Kruger National Park

No honeymoon is complete without danger (or at least the illusion of danger) and embarking on a traditional African safari is an ideal option to have an adventure of wonders.

The Kruger National Park has an incredible diversity of wildlife such as lions, elephants, leopards, cheetahs. It is also one of the select places where you can find the Big Five animals (elephants, lions, buffalo, rhinoceros, leopard) in South Africa. Pretty cool, uh?

Pack your best zoom lens and get ready to spot some of the biggest animals of this planet of ours!

Romantic Destinations in South Africa #4: Winelands, Western Cape

Last but certainly not least, a visit to the Western Cape Province is a must during your visit to South Africa. And while Cape Town is the most famous destination of the Western Cape, there is so much more to explore outside of it.

Are you a wine lover like me? Not only are the South African wines some of the best ones to taste, the vineyards themselves are also very beautiful to look at!!!

The six main regions are Boberg, Cape South Coast, Olifants River, Klein Karoo and Breede River Valley. Gotta drink them all I say!!! (Or at least one new one per day).
