The Richtersveld Transfrontier Park is a national park like no other. For miles and miles there are nothing but half-human plants and sand. Rarely will you see another person and if you do it is far beyond the horizon, yet somewhere between these miles of nothing, the best fauna and flora can be found.
Valentine`s Day is upon us and nothing says romance better than the African bush. You do not need to be a hopeless romantic to score some major points. From fine dining to rustic bush. We are naming the quite different yet equally romantic places to take your partner this valentine`s day or any other day for that matter (it`s always a good time to escape to the bush).
Africa is an extremely vast and diverse continent with the main attraction obviously being the wildlife. Humans and people live in peace together (sort of) and share this amazing piece of earth.

Take one of Africa`s best road trips.
Hoedspruit is a beautiful little tourist town in the heart of the lowveld. It is surrounded by world class lodges and bush camps. I can go on for days about what these lodges have to offer (which is plenty by the way) but I would like to focus a bit more on the town itself. The community of this town take great pride in the cleanliness and safety of their town. No wonder the tourist adore this place so much.
South Africa has art popping out of every nook and cranny. The amazing natural environment is an artwork in itself and all South Africans, from children to streetwalkers, are artists.
Ever dreamt about seeing a Protea in its natural habitat? The Mariepskop View Point is one of the best kept secrets in the Lowveld and is also home to magnificent National flower of South Africa, The Protea. They bloom from mid-August to early September which leaves you with only a small window of opportunity to witness these amazing flowers. The dirt road starts on the R351 about 50km outside of Hoedspruit which is the nearest town. The dirt road is located about 500 meters past the Blyde filling Station.
