An unforgettable Valentine in the middle of the African savannah

If you want an ideal paradise for a romantic vacation, an oasis of privacy and luxury, there is a corner of the world that will meet your expectations. It’s about South Africa. In the northwestern part of the country hides the 5* Grand Luxury Hotel the Palace of the Lost City, a member of The Leading Hotels of the World and located in the middle of the crater of a volcano 150 kilometers long and 15,000 hectares of lush vegetation, of which almost 80% are native plants.

The atmosphere of this place will transport you to the ancient African kingdoms. The Shawu elephant, a life-size statue sculpted in bronze, will welcome you in the entrance hall where earth colors and typical African designs dominate. Lovers can stay in one of its luxurious suites decorated with traditional handcrafted pieces and with impressive views of the gardens. In addition, upon arrival they will be entertained with sparkling wine and a fruit basket. Enjoying a romantic walk around the hotel at sunset is an attractive suggestion.

Unique excursions

A fun 4×4 safari awaits lovers to live the unique experience of seeing the Big Five: elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion and rhinoceros. Those who prefer it may choose an unforgettable balloon ride and contemplate the extensive African savannah or take a dip in the Valley of the Waves. To relax, nothing beats an aromatherapy massage at the hotel’s Spa, which also offers exclusive treatments for two.

In the evening, the couple will enjoy an exquisite dinner at the sophisticated Italian restaurant Villa del Palazzo, which proposes an exclusive Valentine’s menu to “conquer” the appetite of special diners. A perfect prelude that will be completed with a select 5-course menu for all tastes that includes fresh salmon with black olives in the shape of Cupid’s arrows as a nod to the day and roast lamb. A sweet dessert composed of raspberries and chocolate will be the finishing touch for this special day.

After dinner, having a relaxed drink in the hotel’s Tusk Bar, with the chords of a piano in the background, is the best option to enjoy a quiet and unforgettable evening for two with an African flavor.
