Part Two: Incredible romantic destinations in South Africa



You don’t have to wait for the month of love to enjoy a romantic trip with your loved one! We’ve rounded up some great romantic destinations in the Western Cape, Northern Cape and Mpumalanga, voted by you on our Ultimate Journey website.


Western Cape



Towering over the V&A Waterfront, the Silo is one of the Mother City’s “in” destinations. Built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex, the hotel occupies six floors above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA), which houses Africa’s largest collection of contemporary African art.



With its beautiful art, style, design and glamour, the Silo Hotel offers luxury rooms, stellar service, and beautiful views.


When you type Grootbos into the Ultimate Journey website, you’ll be met with outstanding reviews for this eco-lodge.


With multiple awards to its name, Grootbos has two 5-star luxury lodges situated on fynbos and forested hills overlooking Walker Bay.  The reserve has more than 740 different plant species, as well as wonderful hospitality, excellent cuisine and wines, and superb accommodation.  






Even without its breathtaking views of the sea, mountain and stretches of sand, The Plettenberg is a luxurious haven. The food, rooms and service are stellar, and when you need a break from all the indulgence, there’s a spa you can head to for even more pampering.
