As soon as the second month of the year arrives – for those who use the Gregorian calendar – a certain feeling pervades the air, making hearts flutter gently and heads giddy and light, as if intoxicated with sweet wine. Yeah, you guessed right. It’s the countdown to the 14th of February, celebrated all over the world as St. Valentine or Lovers’ Day.

Some will argue that the celebration of love should not be limited to a single day – and I agree. Yes, love should be a daily celebration. But a special period should be set aside. It’s like your birthday. Celebrate yourself every day, but your birthday stands out and stands YOU out. So does February 14. Designed for you and that special person…

This year, Valentine Day falls on a Saturday. Perfect for a weekend getaway to a romantic destination in Africa, or on one of its surrounding islands.

 

Here’s a list of 7 possible things you can do this Valentine:

 

  • Spend private moments on exclusive beaches in Mozambique, Zanzibar, Mauritius…
