With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’ve got love on the mind. And whether your idea of romance is a remote beach escape, or luxurious bush hideaway, nowhere does romantic getaways quite like Africa.

Here are a few of our ultimate romantic activities to do with your loved one while on safari in Africa:

Sundowners with a view

Every evening, nature treats us to a spectacular show – sunset. Of course, sunsets aren’t exclusive to Africa, however, Africa can claim to have some of the most spectacular sunset displays in the world. Bursting into bright hues of orange, pink, red and yellow, iconic scenes like this are best enjoyed with an ice-cold drink in hand and your loved one at your side.

Candlelit dinner for two

Intimate dining is always a special affair, made all the better by being set up in a swoon-worthy setting. At many lodges in Africa, dinner for two is an indulgent and private experience and an ideal moment for popping the question or celebrating a relationship milestone.

Outdoor Showers and Baths

Part of the opulent extras of a luxury African safari is the treat of being able to enjoy some unusually indulgent bathrooms. Standing under the sky in a waterfall shower, or soaking up the bliss of a bubble bath with a view, there’s no better way to clean up! Plus there’s always space for two…

Sleeping under the stars

A trip to Africa would be incomplete without spending at least one night under the night sky! Fortunately, you don’t need to rough it in order to do this as many lodges offer ‘sleep out decks’ for guests to enjoy. Generally built on raised wooden platforms, the decks boast magnificent views and are the ideal spot to snuggle under the stars.
