Botswana is a wonderful honeymoon safari destination, especially if you are looking to explore pristine wilderness
From the Kalahari Desert to the Okavango Delta, Botswana offers amazing game viewing, varied activities, exclusivity, intimate camps and lodges, stunning scenery and mostly 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 or helicopter scenic flights 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 traditionally not cheap, especially during the high season from June to October.
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 or 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, consider Mauritius, Mozambique or The Seychelles, all of which will be reached via Johannesburg.
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 southern Africa, you’re probably better off considering doing so in South Africa, Zambia or Zimbabwe and then going to Botswana on ‘honeymoon’.
