We had an absolutely amazing honeymoon. It was the trip of a lifetime. The travel company completely understood us. I told them that we were two biologists, who were used to the student life style, and didn't need anything fancy, but were pretty active. They organized amazing day trips for penguin, whale and shark watching (and diving), and four fantastic days on safari. The travel company also heard us when we said that we didn't need fancy meals all the time, and put us in lovely BnBs in Cape Town, Hermanaus and Stellenbosch. This let us be a lot more flexible about where we wanted to eat, and not feel like we were always on a schedule. Then, when we were on safari, we stayed in what I can only imagine, was the perfect camp for us. It was absolutely the trip of a lifetime, and we'll never forget it. Our ranger and tracker were so knowledgeable, but also so friendly. The other folks who worked at the camp were also lovely, and interested in knowing what we were interested in. We really felt so welcome there. We're already thinking about how and when we can go back.
Around the cape, it was definitely the penguins. We were so looking forward to going to the penguin colonies, and they did not disappoint! Our tour guide heard how much we liked penguins, so he made a point to have an extra penguin stop for us on our winery tour. That was amazing.
I would probably spend less time in Cape Town (we were there for four days), and more time in Hermanus and Stellenbosch.
