Honeymooning in South Africa
If you have been a guest of Cloughjordan House or if you know Sarah and Peter, then you will know that we have a fondness for South Africa here in CJH.
Sarah’s parents have a home in South Africa. This means Sarah jumps on a plane any chance she gets to visit them and also to explore all the beauties that this, now popular honeymoon destination, has to offer.
A lot of our couples here in CJH have chosen to visit South Africa for their honeymoon and often ask where they should visit. So if you too are planning a visit, please read on. I’ve sat Sarah down to pick her brain and get her top recommendations. Enjoy!
