Okavango – Welcome to Botswana and Your Honeymoon Safari
Botswana has always rewarded the discerning visitor. It's not a country of mass group tours or a dozen safari trucks surrounding a lion pride. With an emphasis on unique experiences and personal encounters with nature, Botswana makes an idyllic first stop on this honeymoon vacation. After landing in Maun you're transferred to a light aircraft and flown into the wilderness, the blue channels of the Okavango shimmering beneath the wingtips. Relax on your private verandah and a gaggle of four-legged characters saunters past; impala, elephant, zebra, and more. The fenceless camp provides a unique immersion in rugged nature and a honeymoon suite that befits the occasion. A sublime raised bed offers views onto Okavango and the en-suite bathroom is nestled beneath a canopy of green. It's a five-star interior befitting its five-star surroundings.

There's no need to choose a single safari destination as this unique vacation combines the highlights of a whole continent. Botswana's wilderness dances with primitive beauty, a myriad of ecosystems bringing diverse journeys into new realms; weave through the forests of Chobe, cruise tranquil lagoons in the Okavango Delta, and walk together through Big Five landscapes. Tanzania's animal kingdoms are very different. It's here that you find the endless grass plains of the Serengeti, the baffling wonder of Ngorongoro, and the delights of the great wildebeest migration. One country provides intimacy, the other imbues scale, and this honeymoon vacation coats it all in lavish layers of romance. Over 11 days you experience four of Africa's most enchanting safari destinations, a majestic interlude provided by a quick stop at Victoria Falls.
Botswana and Tanzania know how to reward the honeymooning couple. Sublime suites provide endearing solitude and privacy, although you should expect a cast of wildlife to saunter past at all times of day. Private verandahs gaze down on world-renowned landscapes and interiors befit the regality required of a luxury honeymoon. All safari activities are private and the itinerary cascades personal moments. Think sunset cruises past hippos, moonlit dinners in the bush, hot air ballooning above the Serengeti, and pulsating natural soundtracks perforating into camp. For 10 days and nights you become part of these epic landscapes, sharing the space with the Big Five yet rarely seeing another person.
Botswana and Tanzania are chosen here because they encapsulate the complete safari experience. You'll explore almost a dozen disparate ecosystems and four world-renowned destinations, each leaving an alternative impression of delight and intrigue. Start in Botswana and the exuberant waterways of the Okavango Delta, nature's remarkable oasis in the desert. Tranquil, evocative, personal; the waterways and floodplains are all about intimate caresses with nature, from vast pods of hippos to a dozen antelope species splashing around the shallows. Fly above the waterways to the forests of Chobe National Park, home to bulldozing elephant herds and giraffe that grace every panorama. Both these Botswana destinations are graced by the big cats, the bounty of the landscape reflected by predatory abundance.
Take a quick break from the safari adventure and jump across the border to Zambia. Within an hour you're standing alongside Victoria Falls, the world's most powerful waterfall combining narratives of grace and power. From here you fly north and the landscapes change dramatically. It's no longer green and tropical. Yellow hues extend across vast plains, the vistas dotted with a patchwork of zebra and wildebeest. First stop at Ngorongoro Crater, where Maasai warriors and buffalo are visible from a lodge evoking old-world charm. Spend a day exploring the crater floor, the full Big Five visible in a single game drive, then drive into the Serengeti for two unforgettable days that seem to come straight from a wildlife documentary. Like always, luxuriously appointed accommodation provides the antidote to days of shared safari adventures.
