We are still in the month of love and treating your lover to a weekend trip in the golden province is an excellent idea.

Here’s a list of ideas and things to do in Gauteng with your lover.

Explore cuisine with #GautengEats

Vibey Gauteng is known for top restaurants that provide a vast selection of cuisine from across the continent and the globe. As such, eating out is a great idea. Worth trying is Imbizo Shisanyama, which is one of South Africa’s most acclaimed restaurants. As you wine and dine, you and your lover can appreciate African cuisine, as well as authentic African culture and heritage.

A weekend getaway in Gauteng comes with many possibilities. If you and your lover are into all things nature and wildlife, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Within a 75-minute drive from OR Tambo International Airport, you can immerse yourselves in the tranquil wilderness of the Dinokeng Game Reserve with elephants, rhinos, leopards, buffalo, and lions. It offers lovely lodges, self-drive safaris, restaurants, and guided walks to get up close to nature.

Spend some special quiet time together in the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden. It is recognised as one of the most beautiful botanical gardens in the world. You can have lunch at the restaurant and buy a special gift to remember the day.

Take to the skies in romance

Get carried away on a gentle breeze, under a colourful canopy of hot air to a destination unknown. This is a really special way to celebrate your love.

There are several providers to choose from and you can take an exclusive romantic flight for two. Sip champagne as you drift silently across the beautiful African landscape, watching a spectacular sun rise.

Moreover, you can join a bigger group and soar over the Cradle of Humankind or the Magaliesberg mountain range on a sunrise hot air balloon flight followed by a scrumptious breakfast as you take in your experience.
