Babymoon


Where to go on a babymoon


Going on a babymoon is not only an opportunity to add holiday snaps to another photo album. It also signifies a new chapter in your life and has significant long-term relationship benefits. Whether you’re having your first, second, or third child—those few months before the due date can be an anxious time for you and your loved one. Not only can travelling to a romantic destination be good for the soul and ease some of the nervous excitement, it’s sure to bring you and your partner closer together, too! 

Southern Africa is positively brimming with idyllic locations offering comforts that expectant parents are sure to treasure. Travelling in the second trimester is a perfectly convenient and safe time to travel with morning sickness having eased and the baby bump not quite having reached its full robust potential. We can create a holiday featuring just the right mix of travel, tranquillity, and relaxation for couples holidaying during this incredibly precious time.
 

Popular destinations for a Babymoon


Indian Ocean Islands

Atolls and archipelagos abound in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean with paradises such as the Seychelles, Mauritius, and Zanzibar providing exquisite beachfront retreats for couples. Romance wafts in on the salty sea air while your toes rest in the warm sand or aloft on a comfortable sun lounger. Overhanging palm trees provide magnificent shade while couples relax, regroup, and sip on non-alcoholic cocktails. 

Garden Route

If you would prefer to stick within close proximity to civilisation then the much-loved South African Garden Route offers this in spades. Couples can relax in the beach town or forest hideaways with the peace of mind that domestic airports, cities, and all their amenities are just short drives away. This part of the world is striking in its picturesque landscape and diverse kilometres of coastline. Lush indigenous forests, mountainous valleys, and calming beachfront guesthouses are easy to find and even easier to settle into. 

Cape Winelands 

While the Cape Winelands won’t attract babymooners for its world-class wine industry, it will spark interest owing to its quaint country-feel cottages, enchanting landscape, and reputation as the gastronomical capital of the country. So, for the last holiday before booking a table for two becomes booking a table for three, explore the Winelands and its enchanting landscape, array of delightfully romantic accommodation options, and its vast selection of world-class restaurants. 

Cape Town 

Marvel at the city from the top of a mountain classified as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature or enjoy musical concerts in lush botanical gardens. In Cape Town, there is romance and intrigue around every corner — you just have to know where to look. With our help, there’ll be no time wasted between tranquil couple retreats. When considering where to stay in Cape Town, there are some places that we’d immediately suggest for love birds. 

MannaBay is elegantly exclusive with only 8 rooms and plenty of charm. This boutique hotel overlooks the Mother City and is backed by the masterpiece that is Table Mountain — a stunning escape for a couple interested in being close to the bustling city but away from its chaos. The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa is equally romantic. 

There are so many dazzling romantic destinations to choose from, thankfully, the Rhino Africa travel experts suggest places tailor-made to your baby-bump and moon needs.
