Whether you’re planning to spend the day with family, friends, a partner, or by yourself, our Willow picnic baskets are the perfect companion for your Valentine’s celebrations. Equipped with plates, cups, cutlery, napkins and being fully insulated to keep your food and drink cool, all you need to do is pack the snacks and go!
Though these baskets can accompany you any day for any outing, we have compiled a list of our favourite picnic spots in Cape Town that we feel are the perfect sanctuary to celebrate LOVE this Valentine’s Day- both of nature and the special people in your life. Most are free, but some require a small fee to bask in the beauty they have to offer and preserve the land, just another small token of your LOVE for nature this Valentine’s Day!
A crowd favourite! And for good reason. Renowned for its diverse flora and luscious lawns, Kirstenbosch gardens is the perfect spot to enjoy a Valentine’s Day picnic with friends or family.

The perfect sanctuary to chat, drink, snack and celebrate LOVE.
