Swop out the rush of city living with a peaceful and romantic getaway to Kruger National Park for an adventure-filled romantic getaway where you will experience wildlife and experience luxury in the African bush.

An unforgettable romantic South African Kruger safari is all you need to fall in love over again, with each other and the African bush.

When I think of a romantic safari, what comes to mind is relaxation, luxurious accommodation, gourmet cuisine, romantic spoils, good memories, and of course – a memorable wildlife experience in the African Bush.

If you are considering the Kruger Safari or the various private concessions within the Kruger National Park as your romantic destination, let me sway you in coming for your unforgettable romantic getaway.

Why should you choose the Kruger National Park as your romantic safari destination?

  • This iconic reserve has long been a classic destination for couples. If you want to experience unrivalled luxury – you should consider staying in one of the private reserves or concessions within the Kruger.
  • Some of Africa’s most luxurious and smooth-running lodges are tucked away in these private reserves, offering you the most incredible big five game viewing experience and unparalleled service, guiding, and cuisine.
  • Enjoy all the thrills of a big five safari. Head out on day and night game drives. Put on your walking shoes and go for a guided bushwalk.
  • Enjoy world-class cuisine, massages, private bush dinners, sunset cocktails, and rose petal turndowns. Experience a sleep-out under the stars, being calmed to sleep by African bush sounds.
  • Spa treatments are an essential luxury on any romantic getaway, and when staying at one of the luxury lodges, you can expect the very best.
  • Scheduled flights from Johannesburg International Airport and Cape Town International Airport arrive and depart daily from local airports near the Kruger National Park, which cuts your travel time to under 2 hours from Johannesburg and approximately 3 hours from Cape Town.

My Tips to You when considering a romantic Kruger safari:

  1. Most of the lodges offer all-inclusive packages, particularly aimed at couples.  Book one of these, and you will not have to worry about a thing from start to finish.

  2. Combine a trip to the Kruger with a visit to one or more of Southern Africa’s other top attractions, like Cape Town, Victoria Falls, and Mauritius or Mozambique.

  3. Your trip can be tailored to suit your budget, with a choice of accommodation ranging from luxury lodges to more affordable lodges.

  4. Choose the most reliable tour operator, for example, Discover Africa – an operator that you can build a relationship with and trust to give you the best advice and listen to what YOU want to experience. An operator who will do all your planning for you will enjoy your getaway with no glitches when you come.
