EEnjoy the great outdoors at Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden

Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden is nestled at the eastern foot of Table Mountain and considered one of the great botanic gardens of the world, renowned for the beauty and diversity of the Cape flora. Covering 528 hectares and home to 7,000 species of plants from southern Africa, the UNESCO World Heritage Site is a fantastic spot to enjoy a picnic and glass of local Chenin Blanc, whilst soaking up the surrounding floral sites and scents. www.sanbi.org/gardens/kirstenbosch/

CCuddle up around the firepit (no drama allowed) 

All true Love Island fans know the real drama happens around the fire pit. Couples can forget the fear of being dumped and cuddle up around an open fire pit in one of Table Mountain National Park’s tented camps. Each camp has a large fire pit, perfect for cooking up a Braai or keeping warm whilst gazing up into the night sky. With access to many of the National Park’s best hiking trails, the permanent tents are a fantastic option for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. www.sanparks.org/parks/table_mountain/

Loved up couples can head to Spier Wine Farm in nearby Stellenbosch, and tuck into one of their Summer Picnic hampers, made from local, natural and organic produce. Guests can pick up their hamper from the farm and lay their picnic rug overlooking the dam or under the oak trees to enjoy their alfresco dinner as the sun sets. No personalised plastic water bottles in sight. www.spier.co.za/food
