When it comes to top honeymoon destinations, South Africa is a land of plenty. If you live abroad and Africa beckons to you, an exclusive safari may be your first choice for a honeymoon. South Africa has an impressive selection of safari honeymoon options, so why not combine a big five safari with stunning wilderness accommodation far from the crowds, along with top-class personal service from caring hosts. Another plus-factor for honeymooners from abroad, is that five-star safaris in South Africa can be enjoyed for a fraction of what an exclusive honeymoon would cost at home.
