With an emphasis on sustainability and organic produce, Babylonstoren offers guests the ultimate farm-to-table retreat with award-winning restaurants, vineyards, a wine cellar and a spa set amidst 8 acres of fragrant fruit orchards and vegetable gardens.

Your driver will meet you and accompany you to Cape Town International Airport for your scheduled flight to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport. From here a Ker & Downey® Africa representative will welcome you and transfer you to a private concession in South Africa’s premier wildlife destination, Kruger National Park. Your base is Lukimbi Safari Lodge, an exclusive lodge flanking the Lwakahle River among a cluster of ancient marula, acacia, knobthorns and bushwillow trees. Your time at Lukimbi can be spent on daily 4×4 game drives in search of Africa’s legendary Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo – and guided River and Bush Walks alongside an armed guided and tracker. In the evening, honeymooners can enjoy sunset drinks out in South Africa’s bushveld followed by a tantalizing private dinner at the lodge’s boma or wine cellar.
Located on the banks of the Lwakahle River in a private concession in Kruger National Park, Lukimbi Safari Lodge ensures the utmost privacy for guests with only 16 luxury suites overlooking the river and surrounding bushveld. The suites are connected by elevated walkways that lead to the Main Lodge which houses a spa and gym, safari boutique, library, bar and wine cellar and outdoor swimming pool.
Your time at Lukimbi can be spent exploring the private concession on twice-daily safari drives, as well as guided river and bush walks alongside Lukimbi’s expert rangers and trackers. The reserve is home to Africa’s Big 5 and has a healthy black and white rhino population. Honeymooners can look forward to an intimate table for two in the lodge’s wine cellar or boma and indulge in the couples massage at the onsite spa.
After a refreshing breakfast overlooking the African bushveld, your driver will transfer you to the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport for your direct flight to Vilanculos, Mozambique. From Vilanculos, you will be escorted to Azura Benguerra, a private island in the Bazaruto Archipelago by helicopter – the perfect introduction to your honeymoon beach escape. Here, you will check in to your luxurious Beach Villa which offers honeymooners absolute privacy with their very own plunge pool and deck overlooking the pristine shore. Your time at Azura Benguerra can be spent soaking up the very best of island life from marine safaris, scuba and snorkelling expeditions to horseback riding and a traditional dhow cruise at sunset. If you are traveling between July and October, you might be lucky enough to spot the surrounding waters come alive with Humpback Whales as they migrate to warmer waters.
Located within a protected marine national park on Azura Benguerra Island, this eco-friendly resort features only 20 villas ensuring utmost privacy for guests. Each villa is decked out with a private infinity pool. The lodge features a wine cellar, cosy bar and lounge area and a wellness spa.
Your island honeymoon can be as laid back or active as you see fit. Try your hand at sea kayaking, snorkelling, scuba diving and big game fishing or enjoy horseback riding, private picnics and bird watching back on land. A highlight of your time on the island will be a traditional dhow cruise at sunset.
Day fourteen marks the final day of your South Africa and Mozambique Honeymoon. After breakfast, you will return to Vilanculos by helicopter and connect with your onward flight home.
