For many couples, honeymoons serve as a once-in-a-lifetime luxurious trip, often fulfilling a bucket list destination or experience. South Africa is one of those places. The country offers a variety of experiences, whether you want a relaxing or adventurous honeymoon.
Start your trip in style by flying business class on South African Airways. You’ll arrive rested and ready to begin your journey. If you’re looking for a city experience, consider Cape Town or Johannesburg.
Located on the country’s southwest coast, Cape Town offers beautiful natural attractions, including the famous Table Mountain and its numerous beaches. Popular luxury hotels include One&Only Cape Town, The Table Bay Hotel and Taj Cape Town. Johannesburg, the largest city in South Africa, offers visitors plenty of cultural attractions, from historic museums to traditional dining. For luxurious accommodations in Johannesburg, try InterContinental Johannesburg Sandton Towers, Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff, Johannesburg or Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa.
Carve out some time during your honeymoon to explore South Africa’s wineries. The Cape Winelands region is home to several wineries. If you have your heart set on a safari, book a stay at a luxury lodge in Kruger National Park. There are multiple options, depending on your budget and adventure preferences.
All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with. From ANA's amazing in-flight food to its excellent customer service, it comes as no surprise ANA has been awarded five stars for its seventh consecutive year by the SKYTRAX World Airline Rating.
Not being able to bring a pet along for a trip can be a dealbreaker from some dog lovers when making plans. Luckily, the folks at Pup Flask created an easy-to-use portable dog bowl that will travel anywhere you and your pup go so hydration is never a problem.
Experience a big-city hotel stay that doesn’t feel like your typical urban visit at Chicago’s Claridge House, nestled in the sought-after Gold Coast neighborhood. The hotel’s sophisticated décor and serene residential ambience foster the atmosphere of an oasis amid the hustle and bustle of a busy metropolis.
Lantern festivals are sweeping the nation. Lanterns originated in China, but made their way across the world. Lantern lights are mesmerizing when they light up the night sky. I always think of the scene in the Disney movie Tangled, where the whole town sends lanterns up to the sky in honor of the missing princess and the entire sky is covered with lanterns. Travel around the world to see the best lantern festivals.
