Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert 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 on the beach in Mozambique. Bliss!

Imagine waking up to find a leopard chilling out on the roof of your glamorous lodge bedroom – that’s the sort of experience you might experience in Botswana.

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

All the lodges are small and intimate with an exclusive feel – you will see few other tourists 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 Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp. 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. For the ultimate luxury safari honeymoon, Abu Camp is unique, with the chance to enjoy conservation interactions with elephants which have been rescued from zoos.

It’s not just about the famed delta. There’s the vast Chobe National Park with its roaming herds of elephant and buffalo and a good chance of seeing lion prides.

Contrast that with the Makgadikgadi salt pans and Kalahari Desert, where honeymooners can stay in romantic desert camps such as Jack’s Camp and meet bushmen tribes.

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, Botswana is hard to beat. Your honeymoon is all about fulfilling your dreams and our Botswana experts will create the best itinerary just for you from the heady choice of options.
