Honeymoon help, South africa, london, paris

Jump to last reply

Hello, i am getting married in June 2011, and have been working hard trying to plan my honeymoon. First of all, a little about me... im from Dominican Republic, so i am not interested in going to a beach destination. i want to go somewhere far and that will be difficult for me to return. For this reason i thought of of South Africa. For logistics reasons (trying to minimize the amount of flights i take) i thought of the following itinerary.

SDQ-MAD-LHR -> i was thinking of staying 3 nights in London
LHR-CPT --> Direct flight to Cape town, where i am planning to stay 4 nights.
CPT-Singita -> I want to spend 3 nights in Singita Boulders camp.
JNB-Paris --> from JNB, i would fly to Paris via London to stay for 3 nights in the city of lights.
From Paris, i would return again to SDQ via MAD.
In total, i can do this itinerary in 13 hotel nights, for a total of 15 days, while getting on 10 airplanes in total.

I would appreciate your thoughts on this itinerary. Is it more of a tour than a honeymoon? Should i remove Paris and/or London and add 2 nights at Victoria falls? Thank you very much for your time!
