Mauritius or Cape Town?

We will be honeymooning in Botsawna on Safari with a few nights in Victoria Falls. We are contemplating extending the trip a few days to either see Maruitius or Cape Town... any suggestions on one or the other. Is one more economical than the other and which is closer to Victoria Falls or Johanssbg since this would be at the end of our trip..

CPT is sure to be more economical than Mauritius even jst based on the airfare. It is a cheap flight from JNB to CPT.

Not sure where you are from, but a work colleague of mine honeymooned in Mauiritus and was underwhelmed wth the island/beaches compared to many places in the Caribbean.

We live in Miami FL so seeing a beach doesnt matter much to me eventhough I am sure it's beautiful and breath taking but we would be looking for the cheaper option and still being able to see something amazing. Cape Town may be the best option.. Do you know if they fly from Victoria Falls to Cape Town or do I have to go back to Johansbrg?

Mauritius is about a four hour flight from JNB, Cape Town is two from JNB. No nothing direct VFS to Cape Town.

Since you are no stranger to the beach, I'd suggest Cape Town ahead of Mauritius. It's my home town so I am biased. Great scenery, easy to navigate and plenty to do.

Do you have any recommendations for airlines we could use. In addition recommendations on Hotels for a 2-3 nights stay.
