    Jane's verdict:

    Botswana is the Rolls Royce of safaris, home to the Okavango Delta and some of Africa’s most gorgeous camps. Watching big game from a mokoro canoe, meeting the bushmen tribes of the Makgadikgadi Pans and experiencing the beauty of the Kalahari Desert are just some of the highlights. Round off with some R&R in Mozambique, Mauritius or South Africa. Bliss!

    Imagine waking up to find a leopard chilling out on the roof of your glamorous lodge bedroom – that was the unforgettable experience of one of our honeymoon couples in Botswana recently.

    Botswana is the stuff of honeymoon dreams. It is undoubtedly one of the most magical places on earth for a luxury safari – and your holiday of a lifetime is the time to splash out.

    • Luxury lodges
    • Unique experiences
    • Wildlife encounters

    Whether you want an authentic safari experience (in a country where conservation is at the heart of everything) or to combine adventures in the bush with some R&R on a fabulous beach in Mozambique, Mauritius or neighbouring South Africa, Botswana is hard to beat.

    All the lodges are small and intimate with an exclusive feel – honeymooners will hardly see others if you go to right places.

    The camps of the beautiful Okavango Delta are some of the most romantic in Africa, including Pom Pom Camp and Selinda Camp. For the ultimate luxury safari honeymoon, Zarafa Camp is the place to stay. There’s something particularly electrifying about seeing big game from a mokoro canoe, gliding silently through the channels of the delta with an expert guide.

    It’s not just about the famed delta though. The Makgadikgadi Pans, where honeymooners can stay in romantic desert camps and meet bushmen tribes, boast landscapes with the wow factor in spades. We can also arrange fly camping and private sleep out trips.

    For a less conventional ‘bush and beach’ combo, you can spend few nights in the heart of the stunning and suitably sandy Kalahari Desert at Jack’s Camp or Camp Kalahari.

    If you’re looking for some thrilling activities, how about a riding safari, walking safari or even quad biking on a five night adventure to Kubu Island…?

    Your honeymoon is all about fulfilling your dreams and our Botswana experts – Ra, Louise F and Fee – will create the best itinerary just for you from the heady choice of options.

    Find out more about our honeymoons in Botswana. The best time to travel is between April and October – the perfect choice after a summer wedding.
