It depends on where you want to go?

If you like the beach, there is a place that is very beautiful and well prices. It's on the beach, there's just a train track between the two.

It's called ATKV Natalia, here is the webpage.



It's about 20km's from Durban airport, so that makes it convenient. There are two options, you can stay in the hotel, which is very nice or you can stay in tents, which costs next to nothing. It's just a place that I've been to a lot, I'm not charging a fee for this, just go enjoy our country.

If you have any questions, give me a shout.
Good day.
It depends on witch area your looking to visit in Sunny South Africa Here are a list of our reagions Limpopo
Known as the ‘Great North’, Limpopo province is home to ancient lands and pre-historic secrets. This is home to Modjadji, the fabled Rain Queen; The Stone Age and Iron age relics of Makapansgat Valley and the treasures of Mapungubwe.
Straddling the northern Kruger Park, Limpopo province boasts wildlife safaris, nature trails – untamed Africa at its finest. This is the land of wide-open bushveld, big-sky country, the ever-present thorn tree and the mystical baobab Mpumalanga
Mpumalanga - which means 'place where the sun rises’- is one of South Africa’s tourism hotspots, loved by both local and international visitors for its beauty and diversity.
This province is home to The Kruger National Park (‘big five’ country), exquisite panoramic views, mountains, rivers, trout fishing and birding opportunities, eco-tourism, adventure holidays and the rich offerings of the local Ndebele and Swazi cultures.
Gauteng
Gauteng is where the creative spirit of a nation converges in a dense, cultural heartland. It is the intersection of African and global trade – incorporating Johannesburg, Pretoria and Soweto. Gauteng is a cosmopolitan, multicultural mix of people from all walks of life, from all corners of the world.
Gauteng's primary attraction is big business, but there is so much more to this province. There is a wealth of culture to be mined in the museums, galleries, art routes and historical battlefields. Gauteng is also an entertainment playground, offering a plethora of world-class restaurants, shebeens, shopping malls and music venues.
The North West Province
Home to the fantastic Pilanesberg and Madikwe game reserves, North West province offers up the big five, fantastic bird-life and wide-open African skies.
The area boasts archaeological discoveries that go back to the beginnings of humankind, as well as the world-famous Sun City hotel complex, creatively dedicated to ancient lost civilizations and modern-day pleasures.
Free State
This tranquil land is the geographic and agricultural centre of South Africa.
However, The Free State is fast becoming a tourist destination in its own right. Famous for its warm South African hospitality, `boerekos’ (traditional Afrikaner farm-style cuisine) and decidedly slower-paced lifestyle, this province has become a draw-card for holiday-makers intent on exploring small-town South Africa.
Known, locally, as South Africa's 'bread basket', the Free State is cultivated by more than 30 000 farms to produce over 70% of South Africa's grain consumption. It is also home to the most productive gold and diamond mines in the world.
KwaZulu-Natal
Washed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) with its subtropical coastline, sweeping savannah in the east and magnificent Drakensberg mountain range in the west, generously caters for just about every taste imaginable.
Known as the Kingdom of the Zulu, KwaZulu-Natal is a melting pot of African, European and Indian cultures. This province boasts two World Heritage Sites – the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park and the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park.
Traditionally, a popular destination for holiday-makers, KwaZulu-Natal is South Africa’s busiest local holiday destination. Northern Cape Province
This province boasts a colourful history and a variety of cultural tourist attractions and is particularly well known for its incredible annual floral display that takes place in Namaqualand .
Eastern Cape
Where else can you surf the world’s biggest waves, ski down the only snow slopes in Africa, go on a `big seven’ safari, visit the birthplace of Nelson Mandela and bungee the highest bridge in the southern hemisphere? The Eastern Cape, of course!
The second largest of South Africa’s nine provinces, the diverse Eastern Cape landscape ranges from the dry desolate Great Karoo to the steamy forests of the Wild Coast and the Keiskamma Valley. The shoreline of this province extends from the Umtamvuna River in KwaZulu-Natal, to the Storms River mouth on the scenic Garden Route.
Despite it’s colonial past, the Eastern Cape remains the homeland of the Xhosa speaking nation.
Western Cape
The Western Cape is one of South Africa’s premier tourist attractions, and for good reason. It is home to the famous Table Mountain, vast winelands, magnificent beaches, world-class restaurants and cosmopolitan entertainment haunts.

The Garden Route could be ideal for a nice and quiet honeymoon. Knysna is a beautiful small town, with unspoilt beauty. You can go on a sunset boat cruise or bicycle tour. There is a number of restaurants to choose from.
Check these B&B's:
Bridgewater B&B TEL:+2744-382 1418
Panorama Lodge Tel: +2744-384 0827
Bamboo Guesthouse Tel:+2744-384 0937
All these will cost you between R200- R500 which is within your budget per day.

I hope this helps!
Hermanus is one of must seen towns in South Africa. About an hour and a half from Cape Town depending on traffic. There is some budget accommodation in Hermanus where you would pay R300.00 (Hermanus Esplanade) per night and that is self catering. Depending on how much you are willing to spend. If you want breakfast included then you could try the Windsor Hotel. Please let me know if you need help.

Hello Sarah. South Africa is a pretty big place and extremely diverse so its quite hard to answer your question without knowing a little more about what you would like to see in out beautiful Country. If you are planning a relatively low budget honeymoon, then the Private Game Lodges are not for you as they are very expensive. If you would like to visit Cities like Cape Town and Durban, enjoy the great shopping, see our beaches, pop out of the cities to places like the Valley of a Thousand Hills, or Table Mountain and enjoy the great and varied cultures, then you could consider staying in some of the many Bed and Breakfast venues that are plentiful in all major cities. They offer great value and it allows you to spend your money on actual holiday activities rather than the accomodation. If you would like to know more about the Bed and Breakfast venues, let me know. I have indicated an example for you to give you an idea.
Hi Sarah,

There are various places that you can visit on your budget. You need to stipulate whether the budget you have given us is a daily budget or not. If this is the case, we will be able to give you a honeymoon that you will never forget.

Please see our website and we can contact us on the email addresses provided. Allow us to give you a honeymoon that you will remember forever

Regards
