The Most Romantic Places to Propose in Southern Africa

So, you’ve decided that 2011 is the perfect year to ask your loved one to marry you. Now, you might not have a royal budget like Prince William, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plan an unforgettable proposal. Instead of going to an exotic location like Kenya, where only the privileged few can afford to go, why not consider some equally enchanting places in Southern Africa?

Here are a few breathtaking spots that will make it almost impossible for your loved one to say no. Whether you’re a fan of the beach, an adventurous explorer, or someone who feels at home in the wild, there’s a place on this list that will capture your heart. And let’s not forget about the incredible engagement story that will accompany the big question. Get ready to reminisce about this extraordinary moment for years to come.

Are you ready for a weekend getaway or an indulgent African vacation? Either way, these destinations will not only give you the chance to propose but also provide you and your future fiancé with a truly magical holiday.

1. The Majestic Table Mountain at Sunset

When I think about Table Mountain, I understand why people from all over the world are drawn to it. Just imagine sitting on a rock, enjoying a delicious picnic and a bottle of bubbly, while the sun paints the sky in vibrant colors and the clouds gracefully dance over the twelve apostles. It’s a moment of pure magic that you’ll never forget.

Getting to the top of Table Mountain is an adventure in itself. You have two options: you can take the scenic route and hike up, experiencing the beauty of nature along the way, or you can choose the aerial cableway, which is even more convenient during the summer months when it’s half the price (R90) until February 28th, 2011. Just make sure to check the weather conditions with Table Mountain beforehand, so you don’t end up facing strong winds and poor visibility.
