What to see in Johannesburg?

Perhaps the most famous place is the Apartheid Museum, the most important place to learn about the serious situation that South Africa lived until 1992, when blacks and whites could not live in the same places, get married, share recreational places or even the latter could not vote.

Nelson Mandela ended apartheid and one of the most important areas of the city is Nelson Mandela Square, which could be defined as the main square in Johannesburg. The Newton Precinct Cultural Center is also worth seeing, with theaters and art galleries as well as the city’s Art Gallery, one of the most important museums in Africa.

It is not necessary to have many days to discover Johannesburg, but with an afternoon or two between the different Honeymoon Travel Destinations you will discover a much more attractive city than you thought.

What to do in Cape Town?

Cape Town (South Africa) is another of the strong points of any trip to the south of the continent. The most cosmopolitan city of the place and the administrative capital of the country is identified by the colorful houses of the Malay neighborhood of Bo-Kaap, its Waterfront and, above all, by the Table Mountain, one of the 7 natural wonders of the modern world.

There are also great attractions around Cape Town. From the Cape of Good Hope, to the Cape Point Lighthouse, Boulders Beach with its African penguin colony, or, for history buffs Robben Island.

Visit Victoria Falls

The other highlight of having a Luxury Honeymoon Travel in South Africa and Mauritius is Victoria Falls. Even more impressive than Iguazu or Niagara Falls, they are almost two kilometers wide and one hundred meters high. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls are located on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, and can be visited from both countries.

What to do on Mauritius?

With a pleasant temperature throughout the year, with peaks of around 26 degrees, for newlyweds, it is a perfect stop to spend a few relaxing nights on the beach. Something essential on a honeymoon!

Among the things to do in Mauritius, beyond sunbathing on the beach, is swimming with dolphins, visiting Hindu temples, or seeing the Le Morne Brabant mountain, a World Heritage Site and icon of the country.

Add a little snorkeling and marine sports at your resort and you already have all the things for a dreamy day in a true paradise.

Luxury tourism will grow by 6.2% until 2027

In the next ten years, luxury tourism is expected to grow by 6.2% worldwide, especially in Europe and the United States, which will account for 64% of this type of travel, according to a study by the Ostelea university center. Among the trends that will mark luxury tourism in the coming years include the commitment to the local, the personalization of experiences, greater differentiation, exotic places, and visits with an ethical vision with little environmental impact, according to the report Tourism of luxury: challenges and opportunities.

How luxury tourists are and what they buy?

The luxury tourists are, according to the Luxury Tour Operator in Delhi analysis, people between 30 and 40 years old, who have a high purchasing power – annual income of over 150,000 euros. Also, they are travelers who speak several languages, who make a minimum of four trips a year, with a high preference for luxury hotels and cruise ships, and with a high level of loyalty, which makes them “highly requested customers” and “appreciated by the sector.”

If you look at the expense they make, it is observed that 54% of these travelers invest between 5,000 and 10,000 euros in each of their trips, although the budget can amount to 50,000 euros on special occasions such as a Luxury Honeymoon Travel.

Regarding the distribution of spending, the main elements in which these types of tourists invest are, according to Ostelea, high-quality hotels, spas, gastronomy, or sports facilities.

The study also discloses that most of the trips of these tourists are concentrated in  August (11%), and December (14%) and that around 46% usually enjoy a ten-day stay at the destination, while 30 % travels over two weeks.

Keys to attracting Premium tourists

The destinations and tourist brands have to change from a marketing focus based on demographic profiles to an approach aimed at psychographic profiles of tourists (which define personality, values, opinions, attitudes, interests, lifestyles and travel motivations). For this, it is essential to know well their behavior, their consumption habits, and their needs when they visit a destination.

The main triggers of purchase (factors that favor the demand) for these Premium tourists are the emotion, the perceived value, the reference they receive from family and friends, the expectation and the need to disconnect from their routine and have enriching experiences.

It is estimated that the growth of this segment was 18%, 1% in 2017, three times higher than the growth of the tourism sector (+ 7%) and much higher than the growth of general consumption of luxury products, which last year increased by 5%).

Even over the years of international economic crisis, the number of millionaires has increased.

North America and Western Europe account for 64% of the worldwide luxury travel issue (despite accounting for only 18% of the world’s population).

We must emphasize the market leadership of the US in this segment: The wealthiest 5% US average 14.3 trips per year (half work, half leisure) compared to 4.8 for the average American tourist. It is estimated that there are 15 million families in the United States that belong to this segment.

All this makes the US Premium market the most lucrative in the world. Europe is still the preferred destination for your long trips.
