IIf you live in Johannesburg or Pretoria, romance is just an hour’s drive away. To help you decide what to do with your beau, we have put together a few suggestions to make it a memorable outing or weekend away.

Johannesburg is dominated by steel and glass towers, and its streets are alive with a bustling vibe. But just an hour’s drive away is one of South Africa’s best countryside getaways. We are carrying on the month of love and it should be easier than ever to swap urban delights for a passionate Sho’t Left in and around Magaliesberg. Magaliesberg is accessible and within the reach of your pocket.


If you looking for love, outside the city, a two-hour Sunday Lunch Cruise around Hartbeespoort Dam might just satisfy the romantic in you. Take in the Magaliesberg Mountains while cruising and sipping cocktails and feasting on fresh Italian bread, a three-course buffet and Italian dessert. Cap it all off with a special Northwest “moer” coffee, which has been brewing since early morning. The boat will travel along the entire periphery of the dam – from the Kosmos foreshore and ending off at Sandy Lane Golf Course – allowing you to take in the Magaliesberg Mountains and ornate houses along the shore.

Book if you want to spoil your loved one with a cruise on Hartbeespoort Dam.


If you are a couple who do not mind an outdoor, dirt-on-your-face experience, Hekpoort might be the right place. Celestial Gift Experiences offers an Adventure Combo-Day for Two, which guarantees to unleash the explorer in you. The three-hour adventure starts with a 30-minute horseback ride through the tranquil countryside. This is followed by a quad-bike ride through the bushveld and five laps of the extra-long outdoor go-kart dirt track.

Satiate your inner Green Arrow as you end off with a spot of archery. If you hit a star, you may win a prize. book at
