Top 5 Activities to do for Valentine’s Day in Kruger Lowveld
Avoid the overpriced roses and rather treat your loved one to an activity experience this Valentine’s Day 2021. After almost 11 months of lockdown, it is time to take your date from the couch to the outdoors and make some memories together!
Looking for some last-minute suggestions on things to do in the Kruger Lowveld? Tours and Tickets SA has you covered – take your pick from the list below:
Paddling down the Sabie River over rapids, through farmlands, and tropical forests are a great way to test your relationship’s strength and patience. After two hours of debating which is the left and right side of the inflatable raft, river rafting will certainly improve your communication skills and is cheaper than therapy!
Kruger Park Game Drive
Cuddle up and watch the bush come alive early in the morning when you head out on a game drive in the Kruger National Park. Your ranger will take you on a 6-hour safari, with a breakfast stop at one of the camps, before returning to Hazyview. Combining V-Day with the family or friends after being apart during lockdown? Rent a private vehicle and bring the kids, friends, and even the grandparents!
Aerial Cable Trail
Wind in your hair, sunshine on your back, and your loved one smiling from ear to ear – sounds like the perfect date, right? Glide over the 1.2km natural forested valley along the Sabie River with Skyway Trail’s Aerial Cable Trail. You will never forget this experience, which is suitable for all couples ranging from adrenaline junkies to those that prefer to “Netflix and chill”.
Enjoy a well-deserved meal afterward at one of the many great restaurants at Perry’s Bridge Trading Post.
Romance will be in the air when you spoil your loved one with a helicopter flight over the Sabie Valley with Mpumalanga Helicopter Co. If you want to make a big gesture of your love, book a flight up to the Blyde River Canyon and over the breathtaking waterfalls.
Picnic Horse Ride
Ride along the Sabie River and over the hills followed by a romantic picnic set up under the canopy of the Matumi trees. This romantic horse trail is popular for those that want to pop the big question! Tours and Tickets SA can also assist with arranging the perfect proposal for you.
