Enjoy some romantic fun in Pretoria.
We have a few great date ideas for both couples who live in or are visiting Pretoria. You don’t have to stick to predictable, conventional dates. Surprise your significant other with a fun, out of the box and romantic experience.
The best part about our hand-selected date ideas is that they don’t cost a lot of money! We believe that you should enjoy the best experiences the beautiful city has to offer without breaking the bank. Here are a few places you can visit:
Lock your love at the Intiem Love Bridge
You don’t have to travel to Paris to enjoy an extremely romantic excursion. Instead, you can lock your love in Pretoria at the Intiem Love bridge. Maybe not quite the same as visiting the Pont des Arts bridge in Paris, but definitely one of the most romantic experiences in Gauteng.
The bridge is located in the beautiful Magnolia Dell park in Pretoria. It was specifically built in cooperation with Afrikaans publication Intiem and the organisers of Marriage Week SA in hopes to encourage a renewed focus on the institution of marriage.
Couples visit the bridge to engrave their names on a lock, lock it to the bridge and then toss the key in the stream. This signifies you protecting your relationship.
