Botswana is home to some of Africa's best game viewing – its scenic beautiful ranges from the lush wetlands of an inland delta to the lunar landscape of the Makgadikgadi Pans and the classic woodlands of the Chobe. Botswana’s top reserves have provided the setting for numerous award-winning wildlife films thanks to its diverse wildlife, abundance of predators and plains game, and fantastic range of habitats.
Botswana’s neighbour, South Africa, is home to regional air hub, Johannesburg. This is where your international flight arrives, which makes Botswana an easy access honeymoon destination with smooth logistics if you want to combine the action of your Botswana safaris with Cape Town’s nightlife, beaches and winelands, or the adventures on offer in Victoria Falls, or the barefoot luxury of Mozambique’s tropical islands.
Botswana’s number one attraction that belongs on every honeymoon itinerary, is a natural wonder called the Okavango Delta. This beautiful freshwater wetland is a vast oasis surrounded by the semi-dessert Kalahari. Its life giving waters support a rich diversity of wildlife, from rare antelope and wild dogs to lion prides and big buffalo herds. The main activities include game drives, nature walks, canoeing, boating and unforgettable safaris on the backs of elephants or horses.
The Chobe National Park is Botswana’s second must-see attraction. It’s home to Africa’s densest population of elephants and biggest lion prides, which adds up to Botswana’s biggest predator action. Game drives are the main activity and a sunset cruise down the Chobe River is an absolute must-do.
Botswana is a great destination for honeymooners – the lodges are luxurious and intimate, often accommodating no more than 24 guests at a time. This makes it possible to offer crowd-free game viewing and we highly recommend a privately guided safari for the ultimate in tailored romance on safari. Botswana is a US dollar-based destination, but the relatively higher cost of a Botswana honeymoon package is balanced out by the all-inclusive safari style and an overall stress-free safari experience.
