Marriage Proposal Ideas in Southern KNP

Unread post by RichardLesar » Tue Jul 05, 2016 10:52 am

Hi All

Any ideas on where a good place would be to propose preferably somewhere with a view but I'm open to any suggestions.

I'm looking at anywhere from Satara and down toward south.

Thanks

Richard, many others members have asked the same question and I recall the most popular place and suggestion was on top of Mathekenyane just as the sun is about to set but leaving enough time to get back to Skukuza camp.
But sure there will be lots of other suggestions.

That's a good one. Had an amazing lion pride sighting there a few years back.

Not south of satara but, Tshanga has a beautiful lookout.
I asked the big question there a few years ago. :D :D

I am presuming you would like to be out of the car?

Off the top of my head and not already mentioned:

N'wanetsi Dam picnic spot
Timbavati Picnic spot
Bobbejaankrans
Orpen Dam
Nkumbe view point
Mlondozi Dam picnic spot

If you pick the time of day carefully the picnic spots would be the best bet.

All the best for the proposal, hope the answer is a resounding "yes".

I proposed to my wife at Sunset Dam, at sunset. Obviously we remained in the car. Just as well, because there was an ellie walking around. It was really special and she will never forget it.

What a lovely idea. :D

My first thought is always Mathekenyane. I honestly cannot think of a more beautiful spot where you can get out of the car and have such a beautiful view. There is also the Hamilton memorial, but it is rather isolated.

I agree with Saraf's suggestions, you need some quiet time and hopefully you wont get disturbed with a vehicle when you are down on your knee. I would opt for Muzandzene picnic spot as its often quiet. All the best!

Thanks for all the replies. You guys have touched on some ideas I didn't think of. So it seems consulting is a good thing

Please let us know how it turned out Richard but with such stunning settings the answer can only be yes! 8)

Not that it will ever happen in a million years but if I was going to be proposed to I would like it to be at Girivana waterhole. I love that place.

Oh, I love this! SO romantic. How about the viewpoint at Nkumbe, there is a covered area that is a bit private. You could have her lookout with binoculars while you put a private event sign up, then throw down some rose petals, pop a bottle of bubbly, and sigh, propose.

Or I bet you could book an entire Sunset drive and have the ranger drive you to a lookout, maybe they could hang some lanterns either on the vehicle or at the lookout. SIgh........

Nice ideas Throwdown. :D

I think we all love a good story and a little bit of happiness.

Bobbejaans krans is another possibility close to Satara. I just love the view there and it is rather private.
