Flowers, chocolates, dinner at a fancy restaurant – you’ve been there, done that when it comes to Valentine’s Day celebrations. Of course, these never go out of style, no matter how many Valentine’s Days you’ve celebrated, but don’t you wish you can do or experience something different for the upcoming one?
If you’re willing to try something new and you won’t hesitate splurging for you and your partner, then you should definitely try spending a Valentine’s vacation in Magaliesburg, South Africa. Here’s why:
- It offers something different from the usual V-day destinations
Wining and dining is all good, but why should you limit yourself to just that when you can make your V-day one heck of a vacation time? What’s more fun than spending quality time with your partner in a tent or caravan, surrounded by the magnificent South African landscape? Magaliesburg houses some of the best camp and caravan grounds in the country. You can plan an exciting day at the safari or try out other outdoor activities such as horseback riding, golf, or trekking.
- It’s home to some of the best health and wellness spas in the region
After an adrenalin-packed day at the safari or mountain trails, nothing feels better than having an expert masseuse’s hands on your aching muscles. There’s no better occasion to indulge on services like signature massages, body wraps, hydrotherapy, and manicures/pedicures. The best thing about the spas in this area is that it gives you access to breathtaking views of the outdoors, which will certainly complete your healing experience.
- The country lodges are utterly perfect for romantic getaways
Why just stick to the usual fancy restaurants or hotel suites in the city when you can dine and stay at a lovely country lodge with impeccable service? Magaliesburg is where you can find the most beautiful country resorts and lodges equipped with everything you need for the best romantic getaway ever.
One of the most popular country lodges in Magaliesburg is Valley Lodge & Spa in Jennings Street, a four-star retreat where country chic meets modern elegance.
