Valentines Day Safari at Ezulwini Game Lodges


Rose petal pillows, candlelit dinners, and champagne sunsets; it’s a time of year for romantic gestures, declarations of love, and celebrating soul mates. Valentine’s Day brings out the best in starry-eyed lovers as they spoil each other with the things they most adore, indulging in good food, wine, chocolate, and all things heart-shaped. Ezulwini Game Lodges – designed for the amorous and the adventurous – is a safari retreat in the Greater Kruger’s Balule Nature Reserve, and it has Valentine’s Day waxed! Come February 14th, you’ll be wishing you were spending it here, dining under a stellar sky, surrounded by the calls of the wild, and being escorted to a suite sure to impress.
You are welcomed to the lodge with sunset-coloured cocktails, and shown to your safari suite, complete with an outdoor shower and private plunge pool. At Ezulwini River Lodge, there will be a view of the Olifants River (complete with hippos), while Ezulwini Billy’s Lodge (located about 50 minutes’ drive away) is surrounded by the natural veld, full of elephant, giraffe, and melodious birdlife. The suites are ultra-comfortable, and decorated with twisted relics of leadwood and African art.

A romantic occasion, whether it be Valentine’s Day, a Honeymoon, an anniversary, or a special birthday, is an unforgettable show at Ezulwini. Every effort is made to paint every element of the safari in rosy shades of romance, making the experience an exclusive and unique experience to celebrate the moment. Private dining is part and parcel of a Valentine’s Day treat, and you’ll be bowled over by your table for two, set up in the wilderness, surrounded by flickering lanterns and under a shimmering sky of stars. Take a seat, allow your glass of wine to be filled, gaze into one another’s eyes, and embrace the sound of the African night.

After a chocolatey dessert, or perhaps a selection of cheese and wine, you will be escorted to your petal-strewn suite, gently lit by candles and inviting you to your private retreat in this very special location. Be lulled to sleep by the wind in the trees and the distant call of hyenas before the sunrise. All this and a gentle knock on your door rouses you out of your slumber in time for your morning safari.


Among the teddy bears, Ferrero Rocher chocolate boxes, and confetti-filled gift bags, a safari getaway at Ezulwini might be the hypothetical cherry on top. This is a wildlife adventure filled with the awe and amazement of seeing Africa’s most iconic creatures in their natural environment, finished with fantasy-fulfilling dinner under the stars. Valentine’s Day doesn’t get better than this!
