Picnic Spots Across South Africa ~ Lily Rose xx - Lily Rose Collection
It's the month of LOVE & Valentines Day so we decided to list some picnic spots across the country for romantic dates, or get-togethers with family and friends.

For those who want to have a picnic but don't have the time or desire to prepare one, there are multiple picnic companies that set up picnics for dates and parties - search for the ones nearest to you! 

For those looking to pack their own picnics, our gorgeous Bag of Plenty range will allow for easy carrying and lots of packing space, whereas our Busy Bag will be perfect for picnics on the beach where you need extra space for towels and entertainment - especially if you're bringing the children along.

South Africa is a scenic & diverse paradise with 9 different natural biomes:
1. Fynbos
2. Succulent Karoo
3. Desert
4. Nama-Karoo
5. Grassland
6. Savanna
