overview

Spend five unforgettably romantic days exploring the jewel of the Kalahari - Botswana's extraordinary Okavango Delta, a place that has long been one of Africa's greatest off-the-radar honeymoon destinations.

Arrive at Maun Airport where you will be transferred to the elegant Sandibe Safari Lodge, located on the banks of a permanent channel in a private concession next to the Moremi Wildlife Reserve. It's classic big game country and you'll spend your time on exciting 4x4 game drives or aboard a traditional canoe (mokoro), travelling the delta's winding waterways.

The second part of your safari takes you to another safari lodge in the Okavango Delta: Xudum Delta Lodge, also set in a private concession. Spend time here on day & night game drives, guided nature walks and mokoro trips.

Itinerary Highlights

  • Enjoy exclusive reserves & intimate camps
  • Explore the Okavango Delta by traditional canoe
  • Tick off as many of the 450+ bird species as you can
  • Have a special bush picnic in the Okavango Delta
  • Sleep under the stars on Xudum's raised platform

Day to Day Itinerary

Days 1-2

Arrive in the Okavango Delta

Catch a flight from Johannesburg and arrive at Maun Airport in Botswana, gateway to the Okavango Delta. Once there, you will be met and transferred to Sandibe Lodge. Sandibe Safari Lodge is positioned on a permanent channel in the south-east reaches of the Okavango Delta. It lies within a private concession, adjacent to the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, which means sensational game viewing coupled with the extra activities that are offered in these exclusive concessions - night drives and guided nature walks.

Spend your days here on 4x4 game drives and tranquil mokoro rides through the reed-lined channels and across floodplains. You can also choose to stay and relax at the lodge, sleep late and enjoy a dip in the swimming pool.

Days 3-4

Explore the Delta's waterways

Today you'll board a light aircraft for your air transfer to Xudum Delta Lodge, your second luxurious Okavango Delta accommodation. Xudum is a stylish and intimate tented safari lodge on the drier southern edge of the Okavango Delta - you'll be setting out on foot or by 4X4 in search of wildlife, or embarking on a mokoro trip, depending on the season's water levels. And since you are in a private concession, you'll also have the chance to set off on a night drive in search of the delta's nocturnal animals.

Day 5

Say farewell to Botswana

Catch your air transfer back to Maun today where you will take a flight to Johannesburg. Your Delta Honeymoon will come to an end and you will continue with your onward travel plans.
