South African Honeymoon

Honeymoon in South Africa - out of this world!

I just got back from my holiday in South Africa - what an amazing holiday!

We spent four days in Capetown exploring the beautiful city, visited Robben Island Museum, had a tour of the prison and visited Nelson Mandela's prison cell, went on a day trip to vineyards in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek for wine tasting and then hired a car to travel along the amazing Garden Route. 

 Visiting vineyards and wine-tasting in Capetown

We stopped off to visit the Cango Caves in Outdshoorn doing an extreme "Adventure Tour" (not for the faint hearted!) and then Plettenberg Bay to visit the beautiful beaches before ending our wonderful trip with a three day Safari in the incredible Kariega Park Game Reserve - AMAZING! 

In Africa, the big five game animals are the lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros. We saw everything but the buffalo and leopard but it was still a fantastic experience.

Lion spotting on safari - beautiful but deadly animals!

 A family of Giraffes - so graceful and peaceful creatures

 A rare sight - herd of elephants drinking by the water especially the baby elephants - super cute!

And the food - how good was it? Absolutely delicious that's what! The portions were very generous (they say that tourists should expect to gain a stone in three weeks because of all the delicious food on offer!) 

 Lunch in Stellenbosch
 Dinner in a fab restaurant, Savoy Cabbage in Capetown

 Lunch at the PepperClub hotel's restaurant, Sinatra's

The seafood was fresh and tasty, straight out of the Indian Ocean and the meat was so succulent and delicious! Not only was there chicken, beef and lamb but meat I had never tried before such as Ostrich, Kudo and Eland. For non-meat eaters the salads were out of this world, so filling and scrumptious filled with the most ripe and sweet avocados, tomatoes, sweetcorn and fruit you could imagine. Delicious!

 Dinner and cocktails at the Harbour House, by the V&A Waterfront, in Capetown
It was a truly fabulous holiday and experience I will cherish forever and never forget!
