Romantic South African trips that will rival the Love Island villa

A trip to South Africa, where the current series is filmed, might be the solution.

From romantic tours of the Winelands, where you can recreate those iconic vineyard dates, to safaris, that let you get up close and personal with big game on the prowl, let your head be turned by these four fantastic options for a Love Island-inspired getaway.

You could even spend the night in a real-life Hideaway – complete with butler service. Now that’s my type on paper!

Read on to find your perfect Love Island-inspired getaway.

Sadly the Love Island villa, in South Africa’s vineyard-blanketed Franschhoek valley, isn’t available to rent any time soon. But we’ve got the next best thing – a one-bedroom cottage with private gardens, an outdoor hot tub and a pergola perfect for date night.

It’s on the outskirts of Franschhoek in Leeu Estates, a sprawling private retreat. You’ll even have a butler to cater to your every need. Read and weep, Love Islanders.

From £2,112 per night on a B&B basis.

Fancy some animal magic? Sign up for this ten-day safari, staying at the Mabula Game Lodge in South Africa’s Mabula Private Game Reserve, where you’ll have a backdrop of the Waterberg mountains.

You’ll learn about the reserve’s conservation initiatives (including its award-winning Hornbill Project) and spend your days searching for the planet’s most glorious beasts (no, we don’t mean Love Islander David).

From £2,201 (reduced from £2,589) per person for travel departing May 22, including international flights and transfers.
