Stay in a Luxury Safari Lodge
The lodges in Botswana offer breathtaking views and a romantic atmosphere, making them the perfect destination for couples looking to get away. Staff members are trained to accommodate every need, and the African sky at night provides a truly dramatic backdrop. Guests can enjoy private dinners on their balconies while serenaded by the vibrant songs of the African night.
Explore the Okavango Delta
The majestic Okavango Delta of Botswana is a must-see for any wildlife enthusiast; watching a sunset together in this magical place could not be more romantic. When the seasonal floodwaters from Angola fill the delta’s meandering waterways, it’s teeming with wildlife – from the Big Five to over five hundred species of birds. A mokoro (traditional canoe) is a uniquely intimate way to explore the untouched beauty of the delta – an unrivaled safari experience you won’t find anywhere else and perfectly built for two.
Rent a Houseboat in Chobe National Park
Experience a romantic honeymoon like no other at Chobe National Park, one of the best wildlife destinations in the world. Witness majestic wildlife sightings and enjoy a luxurious houseboat cruise – the perfect opportunity to soak up the magnificence of this Botswanan paradise. Bird lovers can time their visit to observe the hundreds of birds that migrate to the park during the wet season. Plus, you’ll be able to take in the beauty of the baby animal boom.
Capture the region’s beauty with a photographic tour and experience the freedom of wild camping. To truly make the most of your trip, why not hop across the border to Zimbabwe and behold the breathtaking Victoria Falls?
Visit the Ancient Baobabs
Amidst the vast, sun-scorched Makgadikgadi landscape, the ancient baobabs stand as sentinels. These behemoths, which can live for thousands of years, bear the marks of their battles; gunshot wounds, among other things, attest to their age. Not far away lies the small pan where early European explorers replenished their supplies. These trees became symbolic beacons of hope, inspiring courage and confidence in their journey. In the south of Nxai Pans National Park stands the majestic cluster of seven baobabs known as Baines Baobabs or the Sleeping Sisters.
British landscape artist Thomas Baines, commissioned by the Royal Geographical Society, immortalized this iconic group of African trees in his paintings. Baines camped beneath these trees in 1862 on his way to Victoria Falls. The hauntingly beautiful baobabs are dry and naked for most of the year, but during the rainy season, they transform when the pans are covered with water, and lush green canopies emerge from their branches.
Sail the Skies on a Hot Air Balloon Safari
From April to September, hot air balloons soar over the UNESCO World Heritage Site – the Okavango Delta, transforming a game-viewing safari into an unforgettable experience. Take in the winding channels, the lush woodlands, and the world’s largest inland river delta from up in the sky and watch the wildlife in their natural habitat. A balloon safari is perfect for couples looking for an incredibly romantic honeymoon experience. It’s also the ultimate opportunity to feel the exhilaration of being thousands of feet off the ground, with a breathtaking 360-degree birds-eye view.
