Love is in South Africa’s air; soon, newlyweds will be arriving to celebrate their love, thanks to South Africa being named a honeymoon destination for 2022.


South Africa (26 January 2022) – The wedding bells have rung, and the confetti is settling, so where do you go next? On honeymoon to South Africa, of course! According to 1.6 million international travellers from Big 7 Travel, South Africa is the place to be to celebrate your love.

The 15 Best Honeymoon Destinations for 2022 have been announced, and South Africa has landed a place at number six.

The typical honeymoon is usually portrayed as some white sanded beach island trip with rose petal bedding and some kind of water sport. We are not against this idea at all, but when you can have South Africa’s varied environments, why wouldn’t you?

South Africa is home to those beautiful white sanded beaches and so much more. You can explore the Karoo, the desert, climb mountains, walk through forests, watch bush sunsets, drink cocktails in hot air balloons, go on drives with elephants, see seals frolic in the waves. If you can dream it, you can definitely do it in South Africa with your partner.

“South Africa is a dream location to visit: endless natural beauty and clifftop views, pastel pink neighbourhoods in Cape Town, wineries in Stellenbosch and turquoise waters. What more could you ask for from a romantic honeymoon?

Hike Table Mountain National Park, learn about the country’s history and see penguins up-close. South Africa is also home to amazing wine and food, and there’s plenty of exciting new additions to the country’s hospitality scene. Cape Town is the perfect starting point for honeymooners eager to enjoy safari trips in Kruger National Park, or explore the wineries along the Western Cape.” – Big 7 Travel

With destinations like Mexico, Greece, and Croatia on the list, we love that South Africa got onto the list. Have you been to South Africa on your honeymoon? If so, where did you go?
