Hi Guys, My fiance and I are getting married at the end of August and we're looking into the idea of a honey moon in September in South Africa. We may have left it too late but to be honest the honeymoon has been the last thing on our mind...
We don't know much about the country at all but having read advice and info around the web and on tripadvisor of what to see and do we're thinking of flying into Joburg then straight to Cape Town for a few days. Then back up north for 3 or 4 days on a nature reserve and then hopefully ending with a bit of a beach holiday, maybe going up into Mozambique.
The main issue we have is budget (that wedding budget keeps creeping up and up!) so we're looking for advice on how to do this on a budget. When it comes to the nature reserves, we're also very keen to not just be another tourist on a safari. I know that by definition that's exactly what we are but I think we would prefer to be roughing it a bit in the outdoors rather than be waited on 24/7 in luxury huts.
Any ideas, experience or thoughts would be really appreciated. Thanks!
