Love is in the air at our camps and lodges this Valentine’s Day. We know we might be a little bit biased, but you can’t get better than a safari in the wilds of Africa for the ultimate romance. Crackling fires, blankets of stars, watching the sky turn deep crimson in the middle of the wilderness and not another soul in sight. We could go on! Here are a few of our favourite romantic hideaways at each of our properties…

Romantic and vast skies.

To the Ends of The Earth at Sasaab

There is something quite surreal, and quite special, about standing in a vast wilderness in one of the earth’s remotest locations, barely visited by humans. Or landing on top of a volcano and feeling like you’re the only people in the world. Sharing a journey to some of the last untouched areas on earth is a thrilling and soul-stirring experience. Sasaab’s helicopter can make this happen.

Cosy Cottage Evenings at Solio

Flickering light from a fire roaring in the hearth. A double-ended steaming tub looking out onto thousands of twinkling stars. Crisp white sheets on deeply sumptuous king-sized beds. Solio’s cottages are made for snug nights in.

Botanical Dining at Giraffe Manor

Soft glowing candlelight, fragrant greenery and a hidden location tucked away behind the manor make the Orchid House the perfect spot for a romantic private dinner. Giraffe Manor’s head chef, David, delights in preparing special gourmet feasts for two.

Soaring High at Sala’s

Slow, serene and silent. Gliding high above the Mara plains in a towering hot air balloon creates an extraordinary feeling. A sense of freedom and wonder at the majesty of mother nature. Sharing such an unforgettable experience with someone special, we think, is pretty dreamy.
