For a truly magical honeymoon, why not try a Botswana safari?

Botswana Honeymoon Safari Holidays

Botswana is arguably the best safari country, so it comes as no surprise that this is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in Africa.

Why honeymoon in Botswana?

The main reasons to honeymoon in Botswana are the country’s wildlife-rich private reserves and the remoteness of its accommodation. Camps and lodges are very small and intimate, often offering private dinners and special drinks out in the bush. The sheer quality of the properties here is also worth a mention. Huge suites with private plunge pools are the norm!

Botswana’s popularity is also boosted by the high standard of safari activities within its national parks. Game viewing throughout the areas we sell is absolutely superb, and the exclusivity of Botswana’s private reserves lends itself to intimate moments away from the crowds. With peak season for game viewing in Botswana being from June through to October, this is the perfect time of year to travel.


Where to go in Botswana?

Our top park is the Okavango Delta, arguably the prettiest park in Africa, as well as the most romantic. However, coming in a close second are Chobe National Park and the Linyanti. The latter comprises three of Africa’s finest private reserves – Linyanti, Selinda, and Kwando.


Recommended activities

Many honeymooners want to end their trip with time on the beach, so it is no surprise that our favourite Botswana honeymoon design includes safari and a good seaside! We suggest starting at Victoria Falls for a couple of nights, to relax after the wedding, before continuing to the country’s best safari parks, with no need for a ridiculously early wake-up call. You then have the option of travelling to Mozambique, Mauritius, or the Seychelles for beach time. It is not a good idea to head straight to safari after the hectic weeks leading up to a wedding!
