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 Camp, Xaranna Camp, Vumbura Plains, Mombo Camp, Zarafa Camp, Selinda Camp or Jacks 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 Muchenje, Khwai Tented Camp, Lagoon 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.
