Our wedding album is nice, but it’s our safari honeymoon pictures we return to again and again. We were treated with such tenderness and care. We didn’t expect a safari company to have such a feeling for romance.

THE BEAUTIFUL OKAVANGO

IT SPARKLES LIKE A GEM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT, PROVIDING AN OASIS TO THE ANIMALS OF THE REGION.

Although there are several beautiful locations to visit on a Botswana honeymoon safari, the Okavango Delta is the par excellence in romantic safari experiences. The remoteness of the camps and the fact that many offer only a limited number of rooms, lets you feel as if you have the entire Okavango Delta to yourselves.

When to go

Both seasons are excellent for a romantic getaway. The dry season is excellent for wildlife viewing and allows you to explore more water-based activities. The green season features even more beautiful, lush scenery and less crowds means more privacy for you.

Dry Season

July to AugustBest for wildlife and water-based activities

July to AugustBest for wildlife and water-based activities

Travelling during the wet season offers its own unique rewards in Botswana, especially for honeymooners. Temperatures range from warm to hot and rainfall comes in regular thundershowers. There is something terribly romantic about watching out over the wide, open African landscape and seeing a thunderstorm raging on the horizon. Luckily, the rain showers don’t usually last very long and you will still experience plenty of sunshine on a green season safari. During this time of year, the vegetation blossoms and the green scenery makes for spectacular landscapes. You will come across beautiful butterflies and a wonderful variety of colourful birdlife. Game viewing is not as easy as it is in the dry season, but you will still be able to experience fantastic safari moments. As less people generally travel during the wet season, you will also be even more private in your tranquil surroundings than otherwise. Sometimes you might even have the camp almost to yourselves. Another benefit is that during the wet season, some of the accommodations lower their rates. Who knows, maybe this allows you to spoil yourselves a little bit more and visit some of the more luxurious lodges or tented camps which otherwise would have been outside of your budget?

Accommodations

ESCAPE IN THE SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LODGES ON THE PLANET

With all these exciting activities possible, remember to take some time to also relax and enjoy your lodging. Perhaps you would like to spend an afternoon simply lounging around the pool with an ice-cold drink nearby? Why not and who knows, maybe the local wildlife will even come to you whilst you are doing so. Coincidently, many of the lodges and tented camps in Botswana are small and intimate, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in your romantic surroundings. This ties in perfectly to Botswana’s tourism philosophy of providing “high value, low volume” experiences. As such, there are many unique and elegant accommodation options available in Botswana, with excellent service staff and delicious food in fantastic wildlife areas. The perfect recipe for a romantic getaway.

Highlights in Botswana

Honeymooning in Africa

Botswana offers one of the last true pristine wildernesses on our planet. Home to an extraordinary amount of wildlife, it is one of the select places which every enthusiastic safari-goer dreams of visiting. The different habitats and ecosystems in the various national parks and game reserves all offer you spectacular and varied safari possibilities. From witnessing the enormous elephant herds of the Chobe National Park, to seeing the lions of the Savuti, finding the rare African wild dogs in the Moremi, or tracking the thousands of zebras who migrate to the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans each year, you will be amazed at the terrific wildlife.

What to do whilst there

There are also many ways for you to explore these beautiful landscapes and to witness this spectacular wildlife for yourself. Traditional game drives with an expert safari guide by your side, is an excellent way to get close to the animals and to observe their behaviour. But you could also drift silently along the waters in a mokoro, a traditional dugout canoe, steered by a local poler, and float through the maze of the Okavango Delta’s waterways. This sure is one of the ultimate ways to hear the sounds of nature around you completely undisturbed. While we are on the topic of water activities, you can also go on a boat cruise. Here you are more likely to come across animals making their way to the water’s edge to drink, swim, and play. Top this off with a beautiful sundowner along the way to end another perfect day. Further activities include bushwalks, night game drives, horse riding, helicopter flights and even romantic hot-air balloon flights.

What to see

Many of Botswana’s wilderness regions are excellently suited to a honeymoon safari. Imagine for example, sleeping out on the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, lying directly under a blanket of stars the likes of which you may not find better anywhere else in the world. However, the best place in Botswana for a newlywed couple to celebrate their marriage is arguably the Okavango Delta. The remoteness of the camps as well as the limited guest capacity of the camps will leave you feeling like you have the entire Delta to yourselves. Wonderful game viewing possibilities and plenty of activities round off what could be the crowing of your magical honeymoon experience.
