SYM 08: 14 Nights/ 15 Days South Africa & Mauritius Honeymoon

A luxury honeymoon holiday to South Africa and Mauritius: Make an adventurous overnight journey in a five star Blue Train from Cape Town to Pretoria, game drives in Kruger National Park with accommodation in Jock Safari Lodge and then fly to Mauritius for a beach holiday at Le Prince Maurice. Full itinerary below:

Day 1: Nairobi – Cape Town

Our representative will receive you at Cape Airport and transfer you by road to the five-star Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa. Accommodation is based on bed and breakfast in a superior double room.

The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa stands at the edge of the world. On one side, a line of majestic mountains – The Twelve Apostles – reaches towards the heavens; on the other, the sun sets on breeching whales, playful dolphins, and crashing Atlantic rollers. And all around, you can walk the wilderness trails of the Table Mountain National Park. We’ll even pack you a picnic.

And yet this luxury 5-star boutique hotel is just a few minutes from worldly, cosmopolitan Cape Town. City-centre theatres and art galleries, plus the shops and restaurants of the vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront are only 15 minutes away via our complimentary car transfer service – quicker still if you use our helipad.

Nearest of all is the elegant area of Camps Bay with its beautiful golden beaches. Or, if you prefer adventure to sun-soaked relaxation, we can arrange sea fishing, shark and scuba diving, or whale watching trips.

Further a field are the Cape Winelands (private tours by arrangement), notably the town of Hermanus where you can visit one of South Africa’s leading boutique vineyards, Bouchard Finlayson, see whales from the shore and, beyond that, the ancient tip of Africa where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet.
