Destination South Africa

South Africa is a fascinating, complex country. Its democracy is still evolving, post-apartheid, and visitors are usually struck by the general sense of energy and optimism that abounds there. The toughest part of planning a destination wedding in South Africa will be choosing among the many options for venues that combine adventure and romance in singular ways.

Couples can choose from big game safaris, rustic mountain huts, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, national parks, eco-tourism retreats, wonderful beaches, snorkeling and diving on the capes.

Whatever your passion - whether waking each morning to the bellowing of elephants, experiencing the elegance of a colonial English high tea, sea-kayaking, extraordinary wildlife, music, or wineries - you can explore, experience, and delight in it during a South African destination wedding.
