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).
Kapama Private Game Reserve
Experience the bush in style. Their luxurious safari lodges include: River Lodge, Buffalo Camp, Kapama Karula and Southern Camp. Kapama is situated on 13 000 hectares of beautiful African bush. With it being so close Hoedspruit`s Eastgate Airport and the town itself, it is very accessible. Kapama Private Game Reserve is home to over 40 different mammal species, including the most dangerous Big Five of elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhinoceros. Approximately 350 bird species and a myriad smaller species can also be seen here in their natural environment. You can take a game drive twice daily with an experienced guide. What is also worth mentioning is the amazing cuisine. Breakfast here is literally heavenly. A buffet you can only dream amongst the wild animal.
Rio dos Elephants
This stunning bush camp is situated on the banks on the Magnificent Olifants River. It flows great and strong right at the foot of the camp. This makes sighting like a huge herd of elephant crossing the river or hippo`s grazing on the grass a regular sighting. This lodge is on a farm called Parsons, which is part of the greater Kruger. This means every animal roaming the great Kruger National Park is also free to roam Parsons as there are no fences separating the two. There are also daily game drives on the farm. A list of additional activities can also be taken part in to make your stay especially special.
Make this Valentine`s Day especially special, chose the African bush.
