Botswana

  • Sue and Steve from Essex travelled to Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia and Botswana on their honeymoonDear Rob, overall, it was wonderful – and your organisation was brilliant. We were met at every stage on time and there were no hassles. Nuarro Lodge was very comfortable and our hosts did everything they could to make us welcome and our stay enjoyable. Nthambo camp was fantastic. Our guides Matt and Isaac deserve a special mention because they were outstanding. Matt really took time to share his passion and knowledge about the animals and the bush and it made every trip out of camp and enjoyable adventure. Isaac had 30 years’ experience and was super cool. We really enjoyed the guided walks as well as the game drives, as we were as interested in the small stuff as much as the Big 5. We absolutely loved Waterberry Lodge in Zambia. You really pulled something special out of the bag on this one! Nathan and Gordon, the guides, and every single other member of staff, were so attentive and delightful. The lodge itself was super comfortable and we really, really wanted to stay longer there. Every place we stayed, the food was remarkable, especially given the limitations of getting fresh supplies and the facilities available. I’ve never eaten so much on holiday! So, all in all, a very special trip and your organisation was superb.Sue and Steve from Essex travelled to Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia and Botswana on their honeymoon

Honeymoons & Weddings

Honeymoons to Botswana and beyond

Botswana is a wonderful honeymoon safari destination as it offers amazing game-viewing, varied activities, exclusivity, intimate camps and lodges, stunning scenery and often very tranquil surroundings. For the more active, there are walking and horse-riding trails to consider, and there are certainly a variety of unique experiences available to make any honeymoon safari memorable. Light aircraft transfers between safari regions and camps are easy and fun, usually offering fantastic views. With iconic natural wonders such as the Okavango Delta to explore, Botswana really is a first class safari destination. However, Botswana safaris are not cheap and a Botswana safari combined with a good beach holiday does mean an expensive overall trip!

Whilst Botswana is land-locked, it can be combined with a variety of beach destinations or neighbouring countries to include different experiences. In particular, the Victoria Falls (Zambia/Zimbabwe) can offer relaxation as well as sight-seeing and activities, whilst slightly further afield amazing destinations such as the Namib Desert and Cape Town can easily be included. For the best beach extensions, Mauritius, Mozambique, The Seychelles and Zanzibar can all be combined with Botswana, although you will need to travel via Johannesburg.

There are many safari options to choose from in Botswana. If you’re looking for top level luxury, exclusivity and pampering, consider Xudum Okavango Delta LodgeXaranna Okavango Delta CampVumbura PlainsMombo CampZarafa CampSelinda Camp or Jacks Camp.

More affordable, yet still very upmarket and sophisticated are a number of camps including properties such as Baines CampLittle VumburaJacanaKwetsaniKanana Camp and Shinde Camp.

If you are less worried about luxury levels and very keen to maximise your game-viewing experience then you could consider more down to earth properties such as MuchenjeKhwai Tented CampLagoon Camp and Kwara Camp, whilst for more active and adventurous safaris you could consider a mobile camping trip with Letaka Safaris, a Footsteps Across the Delta walking safari, or horse-riding with Okavango Horse Safaris.

Safari Weddings in Botswana

We do not recommend getting married in Botswana because the process is ridiculously complex and you have to make more than one visit to the country! If you wish to get married in Africa, you’re probably better off considering doing so in South Africa, Zambia or Zimbabwe and then going to Botswana on ‘honeymoon’.

Please see our general ‘accommodation on safari’ page for more information on different styles of accommodation on safari. If you are looking into your first ever trip to Africa, you may wish to visit our ‘planning a safari’ section.

Whatever your specific ideas and desires, we specialise in designing individually tailored itineraries and can offer you the expertise and personal service required to guarantee a perfect honeymoon or wedding safari. Please call us to discuss your ideas and requirements.
