The Perfect Botswana Honeymoon – Champagne, Waterlilies and a huge dollop of Romance
11 days from £6,436 per person
The Okavango evokes images of still waters, waterlilies with a back drop of elephant and ridiculously beautiful sunsets – a dreamy idyll and the perfect spot in which to indulge in the romance of a safari of a lifetime.
This romance-filled safari begins at the magical Magkadigkadi Pans and its mystical salt pans. A light aircraft hop from Maun transports you to San Camp. Dine out under the stars a deux enjoying world-class cuisine and a bottle of champagne, or simply revel in the remoteness and beauty of the never-ending horizons. Enjoy walking, driving or quad biking during the sunny days and relax in the evenings around an open fire or watch the sun go down in the ‘Yoga’ pavilion.
From one romantic setting to the next, you will be transported by charter to Moremi Camp for a few days of incredible game viewing during the day with evenings spent luxuriating in the delightful honeymoon suite, complete with muslin mosquito nets and champagne on ice.
Journey onwards to the tranquility of the Okavango Delta. Your stay at Camp Okavango promises to be peaceful and serene as you glide through the silent and intricate waterways in a mokoro (dug out canoe) or cruise on a motor boat enjoying the many birds and wallowing hippos. At night, the gorgeous honeymoon tented suite is as romantic as it is grand with plenty of room for private dining. After another hop on a light aircraft, your journey concludes at Chobe Game Lodge, staying in a suite with its own private plunge pool, sitting room and stunning views over the Chobe River.
