Africa Honeymoon Itinerary: The 2-3 Week Trip Guide

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about traveling to Africa?

Let me guess, that ultimate travel bucket list item, the African Safari.

While the Safari certainly is the number one reason most people travel to Africa, there are so many other amazing things to see and do. After spending over a month traveling around and  visiting the most luxurious Africa honeymoon destinations and venues, we have put together the ultimate Africa honeymoon Itinerary. Although not everyone can have a month long honeymoon, we have outlined a  2 week and 3 week itinerary.

Giraffes in Africa Safari

3 Weeks (21 days)  - The Best of Southern Africa

Cape Town - 7 days (4 nights in Cape Town, 3 nights in Winelands)

Johannesburg - 1 night

Kruger National Park - 4 nights

Johannesburg - 1 night

Livingstone- Victoria Falls - 3 nights

Johannesburg -1 night

Mozambique or Seychelles - 4 nights

Cape Town - SA City Tour

We spent 7 nights in the Cape Town area and we could have easily spent another week. There is so much to do and see.

Day 1 - Arrive - Camps Bay

Day 2 - Table Mountain and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

Day 3 - Muizenberg, Boulders Beach and Cape of Good Hope

Day 4 - Robben Island and VA Waterfront

Penguin beach

VA Waterfront

Winelands - Get Tipsy

Day 5-7 - 48 hours of Wine tasting and relaxing



Day 8- Fly from Cape Town to Johannesburg or if you can splurge take the luxurious Blue Train. Flights from Johannesburg to Kruger leave early in the morning so an overnight in Joburg is necessary. We recommend The Peech Hotel and Athol Place.

Kruger National Park - Wild with the Animals

Day 9-12 - We recommend experiencing 2 different lodges. Every safari camp and location within Kruger will provide you with a very different experience. Consider a Safari group like Singita or Andbeyond,  which have multiple safari camps. They often offer specials to split your time between 2 of their camps. For instance you can stay 2 nights at Singita Lebombo and 2 nights at Singita Boulders in Sabi Sands. Transportation between the 2 camps is included.

Day 16 - Local Market visit and  local village visit

Day 17- Overnight in Johannesburg - Beaches and Relaxation

Day 18 - Flight from Mozambique or Seychelles from Johannesburg (2-3 hours)

Day 18-21- Relax on the beach, snorkel, fish, each seafood and have lots of cocktails in coconuts.

Azura Helicopter Ride to Pemba

2 Weeks (14 Days) -  City, Safari, Adventure or Beaches

With a 2 week itinerary we suggest either beaches or adventure. Since a flight is required to get to both destinations, it can get quite costly and take up too much time traveling if you only have 2 weeks. Here is a slightly modified itinerary for a 2 week African getaway.

Cape Town - 5 Days, 4 Nights

Day 1 - Arrive - VA Waterfront

Day 2 - Muizenberg, Boulders Beach and Cape of Good Hope

Day 3 - Table Mountain and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens


Day 4 - Wine tasting and relaxing

Johannesburg to Cape Town

Day 5 - Overnight in Johannesburg

Kruger National Park - Safari

Day 7-8 Kruger National Park

For a 3 night safari, we would suggest staying at one camp.

Day - 9 Overnight in Johannesburg

Islands or Adventure (Mozambique or Seychelles/ Victoria Falls)

Day 10-14 - Islands or Adventure

If you choose to go to Mozambique or Seychelles, we suggest 4 nights, but if you choose to go to Victoria falls, 3 nights would be sufficient and we would add another day of safari to the itinerary.

Where we stayed: Azura Quilalea

Day 15 - Fly Home
