Whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon experience or a romantic getaway with your significant other, we have come up with our favourite spots in the Kruger National Park just in time for Valentine’s Day. With a dramatic drum roll and in no particular order…
As a member of Relais & Châteaux, this prestigious establishment had to make it onto our list. Just three suites adorn the property, each opening out directly onto the Sand River and private, heated plunge pool. Light, space and privacy are the primary aims of each magnificent suite. For couples on the ultimate honeymoon, a private vehicle is made available, like a chariot through the African bush – take this opportunity to wave like a royal without judgment.
For the active couple, a gym and yoga classes are available in the Wellness Centre. After a busy day, take advantage of the luxurious massage therapies on offer, available in the privacy of your room – can it get more romantic?

With part of the lodge geared toward honeymoons and couples, Lion Sands has to make it on to our list of romantic getaways.

Delightful designs, a private pool and exquisite views provide a sensory, romantic experience. Can it possibly get better? Yes, there’s a double wardrobe – now both of you have room for your clothes!
For the real romantics, the lodge offers Treehouse experiences where you and your loved one can spend a night under the stars in the heart of the bush. This special night starts at sunset with a decadent picnic dinner on the treetop deck, watch as the dusk turns into a sky adorned with stars and fall asleep to the sounds of nature.
