When the love bug bites! Valentine’s Day with Citiliner – and 3 romantic routes you just might pass

There is nothing quite like the romance of a road trip, especially if you’re traveling with someone special this Valentine’s Day and you’re looking for an excuse to hang out. No doubt, Southern Africa has its fair share of romantic trips and places and, as it so happens, Citiliner loves them as much as you do.

Yes, we have been bitten by the love bug, so let us do the driving while you sit back, hold hands and take in the romantic sights and sounds of the most iconic and romantic routes around, with the most cost-conscious and lovable coach service you know. That’s us by the way!

So, here they are – three Citiliner trips that will get you bitten by the love bug too…

  1. The Garden Route, from Cape Town to East London or Durban – and then back again!

Perhaps the most scenic driving route we know, and certainly the most romantic, is  an extraordinary slice of green wonder sandwiched somewhere between the mountains about George and all the way to the Tsitsikamma and back.

Ah yes, romance is best experienced with drama: The views here start when Cape mountains cliff and slope about every corner, and then disappear into the ocean of our ever-romantic dreams. It is perhaps the most iconic driving road in Africa, and is set neatly between curio towns as inquisitive as Wilderness, and others as breath-taking as Knysna as it comes into view beyond its dark-water lagoon.

Find a shoulder to lean on and take it all in. Romance has never looked this good!

  1. A trip through the Karoo, from Cape Town to Johannesburg, via Kimberley or Colesberg.

If you’re reading this with a sense of romantic reservation, you might not have experienced the love to be found in the open spaces of our favourite semi-desert.

Ah yes, the Karoo, a romantic abyss of nothingness that dissolves at each corner into a dramatic affair of sunsets and windmills, taking you back to a time of simplicity. Arguably, there is nothing more romantic than the emptiness of desert spaces and the appreciative quiet that can be found deep within. Topped with the cathedral masts of every quiet town you pass, this is a trip to really get to know each other.

Oh, and by the way: You’ll thank us for the aircon! You’re welcome. 

  1. Any route with us – when the journey is all that matters…

Yes, whether piercing through the ancient hills of KwaZulu-Natal, or the whispering ones about the Transkei, any Citiliner trip with someone you love is a trip worth being romantic about.

It starts where it begins, and flows via the contours of romantic conversation that began when you met them, and then sharpens in those few hours on a bus when you really get to know each other – or learn each other again. A journey together is a break from the hustle and bustle of the destination, a chance to explore the reasons you’re in love and the reasons you could love each other forever. So explore that romance with us. Explore with Citiliner!

Wishing you a wonderful and beautiful Valentine’s Day – and, if you’re traveling somewhere with someone special, a lovable and romantic Citiliner trip.
