The honeymooners will be met at the airport and transferred to Lion Sands River Lodge, where they will spend three nights luxuriating in the African bush. The reserve is very secluded and every room has its own private patio where sundowners may be enjoyed in peace and quiet. As the lodge is close to the river, you are ensured of exceptional game viewing, even from the comfort of your own luxury room. The reserve forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park and is home to many of South Africa's finest game lodges. Two game drives and a bush walk are conducted daily.

Day 11 : Mpumalanga Highlands

A last morning game drive and breakfast are followed by an excursion through Mpumalanga's Panorama Route. Stops are made at God's Window with its sweeping views of the Lowveld region and the triplet peaks of the Three Rondavels, both situated along the escarpment of the world’s third largest canyon. The Blyde River Canyon is an Eden of rich vegetation and beautifully formed rockery.

We will then travel along the highest paved road in South Africa. From the crest of Mount Anderson one can look down 1 000 meters onto South Africa's largest man-made forest. Guests will then drive through Long Tom Pass at 2 149 meters above sea-level. The pass is named after an old cannon used in the Anglo Boer War, often referred to as Long Tom. Guests will continue along the Panorama Route through Lydenburg to Dullstroom, where the honeymooners will enjoy an overnight stay at Walkersons Country Estate.

Here the honeymoon couple may revel in the warm hospitality and fine experiences this boutique hotel has to offer. The en suite rooms are both romantic and refined, with a lake view, private patio and fireplace. Dining is a celebration of the senses where the honeymooners are taken on a culinary journey through a variety of courses and sorbets in the fireside intimacy of the dining room. Guests spend one night at Walkersons on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis.

Day 12-14 : Livingstone

Breakfast is followed by a transfer to O R Tambo and from there a flight to Livingstone. Guests will be met on arrival at Livingstone Airport and transferred to their hotel, located on the banks of the Zambezi River.

The Royal Livingstone boasts an alluring proximity to the foamy crest of the Victoria Falls, offering spellbinding views of the falls’ rainbow-spun mists pirouetting above the drop. Mealtimes are known as much for their delectable flavors as for their spectacular settings. Breakfast and lunch are typically al fresco affairs under the shady loom of indigenous trees or with views over the river. Dinner is an altogether regal business, whether enjoyed under the softly-lit glow of chandeliers or the silvery sparkle of the African night sky.

Your three nights at the hotel will include a visit to the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, with its perfectly posted viewpoints of the falls. Wildlife such as baboon and various antelope species may occasionally be observed throughout your exploration of the park. A stop at the African curio market just outside the park may prove a fruitful experience for souvenir seekers.

Day 15-17 : Chobe National Park

After three nights of colonial luxury, the honeymoon couple will, after enjoying a last breakfast at the Royal Livingstone, be transferred to the Chobe National Park in Botswana.

In Chobe guests will encounter the remarkable creatures of this African wilderness and some of the most spectacular sunsets mother nature has to offer. Three nights are spent at Chobe Chilwero Lodge. Guests will enjoy two safari activities each day. These safaris will alternate between open 4x4 game drives in the national park and water-based game viewing from the Chobe River.
