When it comes to romance, it doesn’t get much better than a beautiful, luxurious safari suite overlooking a river, with hippos serenading and the sights and sounds of the African bush all around you, the soft flickering of candlelight and lanterns breaking up the warm African night and your partner at your side… Where is this magical place? Abelana River Lodge is the answer!
We LOVE love here at Abelana, and making a romantic escape truly special is something that puts a smile on our faces and joy in our hearts. So with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, think about spending quality “we” time here with us in the wonderful African wilderness of the Greater Kruger region.
Abelana River Lodge is perfect for lovers of all ages, with its impeccable style, elegant interiors and first-class attention to detail, not to mention its incredible location on the banks of the Selati River with breathtaking views from every angle. Renowned for its fabulous food, warm hospitality and gorgeous décor, the lodge’s 20 spacious suites all face the river and have their own private viewing deck where intimate meals can be arranged. Or just lay back on the comfortable loungers and immerse yourself in wild Africa.
Abelana Safari Camp in the south of the reserve is a romantic’s dream-come-true. This intimate tented camp is located amongst towering granite outcrops and offers an authentic taste of Africa. This is “glamping” taken to its ultimate conclusion with spacious luxury tents equipped with all mod cons and their own en-suite bathrooms allowing you to experience the bush in every way and immerse yourself in the surrounding wilderness.
With just four double tents, the camp’s highlight is its superlative 100 square metre viewing deck set on top of a towering koppie with views of forever. What better place to say “I love you”?
Bush walks are a speciality at Abelana Safari Camp, and exploring the area on foot gives you the chance to truly appreciate the intricacies and interconnectedness of the wilderness around you. Stop for a wonderful brunch in the bush and put your arms around a giant baobab tree that’s more than 1500 years old and marvel at the incredible scenery.
If you’re thinking of popping the question, then let’s help you plan the big moment! We have more than enough special places on Abelana to choose from, and while you’re here, why not plan the wedding as well! We’d be delighted to talk about helping you create the perfect “Big Day” for an intimate group of friends and family.
Even if you’ve been together for years, let’s not forget the milestone moments and celebrate them with style, either renewing vows, re-dedicating your love for one another or just marking a special anniversary. Whatever the occasion, we’re on hand to help you make it one to remember. So get in touch today!
