Detailed Description

There is no sweeter taste than a romantic getaway within the lavish landscapes of secluded African wilds. On this 10-day tour through Botswana and Zambia you will find the splendor of one of the largest waterfalls in the world while witnessing the majesty of immaculate wildlife, from lions to elephants, living their lives untouched by outside influence. From the luxuries of exquisite accommodation you will have the view of a lifetime while holding hands with the one you love and watching the effervescent scenery pass by.

Your romantic, luxury Botswana safari vacation begins with your arrival in Linyanti. What was once a private hunting ground now boasts some of the grandest wildlife within the region’s protected lands. The splendor of the landscape can be seen from your private deck or poolside overlooking the riverbanks where the animals come to sip the cool refreshment. Spend your days journeying through the scenery in search of famed wildlife, from giraffes to zebras, elephants to wild dogs, before departing for Chobe National Park. Once in Chobe you will spend the afternoon drifting along the river, enjoying the tremendous scenery of animals lingering beneath the forest trees that sit beside the water. Remarkable birdlife and lively hippos speckle the landscape. The following day you will find yourself in Livingstone, Zambia discovering the awesome magnitude of Victoria Falls, known for its raw power and organic beauty.

Your time in Livingstone is at your leisure to relax within the spa or experience the several activities for which the city has become synonymous, including adventures such as river rafting. Eventually you will come to South Luangwa, a secluded national park that boasts woodland savanna and a remarkable amount of leopards to view within their stunning habitat. Together you will be guided through the park both in the morning and the evening, and will be able to take part in a walking safari through the brush to discover the diversity of the flora and fauna that reside within the tall grass and oscillating trees. When your time to journey home comes you will always have the memories of your unforgettable romance set beneath the wild skies.
