After-Dark Picnic Adventure
Picnics are a go-to romantic staple, but this year Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens is offering couples (and kids!) the opportunity to visit the garden at night between 6pm and 10pm for a magical after-dark excursion. There will be light music throughout the evening and lots of prizes will be up for grabs, too. Tickets are available at webtickets.co.za and can also be purchased on-site.
This Valentines Day Paint Night painting and wine experience will delight the art-loving couple – no prior painting skills required! Here, you’ll be able to create something special with your other half over a glass of wine. How romantic! The class will cost each couple R990, inclusive of all your supplies, wine, an assortment of snacks, as well as the painting you create that you get to take home with you.

Loved-Up Ballooning Escape
There’s something romantic about seeing the world from a bird’s-eye view, especially with your loved one by your side. For the more daring couple, reserve a hot air balloon ride over the rolling hills and grasslands of Clarens or the Drakensberg. Your airborne adventure will begin just after sunrise – prepare to take in the magnificent sights below! Upon landing, you’ll also receive a celebratory glass of champagne.
