For the month of love, we thought we would share some of our Most Loved Bush & Beach Escapes in Africa. Whether you’re popping the question or simply spoiling that special person in your life, our list of romantic bush escapes is the only guide you need! From traditional safaris to ultra-luxurious lodges and hotels, these wonderfully appointed properties will have your significant other mesmerised, and you can take all the credit. We don’t mind.

The Outpost, in the Northern part of the infamous Kruger National Park is a romantic escape of a lifetime. The lodge is set on a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River, could you picture anything more perfect? The Outpost is an architectural masterpiece! Whilst this region is less known for brilliant game viewing, it is a popular destination for walking safaris and birding. Guests can also enjoy game drives or simply indulge in a rejuvenating spa treatment. One of the most iconic views at The Outpost is the one from the standalone bath set on the edge of your private suite looking over the majestic mountains and the river below.

Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve, a unique gateway to nature’s form of paradise! The accommodation offerings are open and airy whilst perfectly tucked away into rock features. Your days begin by waking up to warm rays of sunlight shining through your private suite, could you image a more serene setting? Your private deck offers endless views of fynbos plains, colourful fauna and nature at your fingertips. This Karoo-like wilderness boasts an intriguing ecosystem of small creatures rarely seen or found elsewhere offering a unique experience.

Tintswalo at Boulders is one of our most loved romantic beach retreats in Cape Town. Apart from being a beautiful coastal escape, this is also a perfect destination to enjoy sightings of the endangered African penguins. These suites are strategically positioned to offer you romantic views of the coastline. Except for the Victory Suite that boasts a private courtyard, perfect for an intimate brunch with your soulmate.

Fancy something out of this world and completely life-changing? Xigera Safari Lodge in the infamous Okavango Delta on the Moremi Private Concession is one of our top picks for a romantic, once-in-a-lifetime experience! Looking to woo your special someone? We suggest spending a night at the Baobab Treehouse. This is what makes Xigera Safari Lodge so unique, as this stunning accommodation offering is a steel-structured treehouse in the shape of a baobab providing unsurpassed views of the natural floodplains.

Islands are a hub for romantic gestures and what better way to spoil your soulmate than with a trip to Azura Benguerra Island! White sandy beaches, cocktails and endless stretches of bright blue waters ahead… I know, I just described an island paradise! Enjoy spa treatments along with an array of activities to explore this island escape to its fullest such as beach picnics, speed boating, scuba diving and, so much more!

Charles Schulz once said, “In life, it’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with.” So, take the opportunity this valentine’s day to explore the beauty of Africa, embrace it, make lifelong memories and do it with your soulmate by your side.
