Our Favourite Camps - Most Romantic

Okavango Delta - Xaranna Camp

5 meerkat rating

Xaranna combines the colours and essence of the Okavango Delta with the comforts of a boutique hotel. The beauty of the area sets the tone. Quirky and creative with oodles of romantic touches, your experience will exceed your expectations. This side of the Delta is seasonally affected by changing water levels, creating an island feel to the camp in peak flood with the focus of activities varying through the year.

Chobe - Chobe Chilwero

5 meerkat rating

Enjoying an elevated setting, looking across the Chobe River, Chobe Chilwero is close enough to Kasane to enjoy modern comforts, yet secluded enough to feel a world away. The spacious luxury chalets are perfect for those who like their safari with a few extras comforts like air-conditioning, Wi-Fi and a full-service spa centre. Romantic enough to even skip a morning game drive…

Moremi, Khwai & Private Reserves - Little Vumbura

5 meerkat rating

Be prepared to book a year in advance if you would like your romantic getaway at Little Vumbura! Nestled on an island in a game-rich area of the Okavango Delta, here you get the best of both worlds – an idyllic and picturesque water camp that also delivers consistent and varied game viewing. For the ultimate way to propose (in case you were thinking of it), book the hot-air balloon safari for some real ‘wow’ factor.

Savuti, Linyanti & Selinda - Savute Elephant Lodge

5 meerkat rating

After a total refurbishment, Savute Elephant Lodge has been recreated as a stylish oasis amid the sometimes unforgiving Savute environment. Between game drives, you can relax and enjoy the view across the enigmatic Savute Channel from the comfort of your four-poster bed or private deck. From the new game viewing hide, you are guaranteed a front-row seat to nature’s drama unfolding at the waterhole where elephant and a whole lot more congregate to quench their thirst.

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, National Park & Nxai Pan - Camp Kalahari

5 meerkat rating

The ultimate camp for romance. Simple, yet overwhelmingly stylish white tents sit perched at the edge of an endless, glistening sea of salt. Move your focus from traditional game viewing to the small things, creating a BIG experience remembered long after the safari. Get up close and personal with meerkats, discover your inner speed demon on a quad bike and gain privileged insight into the lives of the San Basarwa people.

Central Kalahari - Kalahari Plains

4 meerkat rating

Huge gauze windows and a sleep-out deck on the roof of your ‘tent’ offer clear views across the open pan. You’ll feel part of the environment and immensity of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The lush green season attracts massive herds of springbok and oryx in contrast to dry winters spent searching for a lone cheetah or magnificent black-maned Kalahari lion.

Victoria Falls - Royal Chundu Zambezi River Lodge

6 meerkat rating

Royal Chundu, a Relais & Châteaux member, comprises two lodges: River Lodge, situated on the mainland, and Island Lodge nestled on a river island. Each offers an exclusive and luxurious escape on the Zambezi River, best accessed by helicopter after a scenic flight over the Victoria Falls. The creative fusion of Zambian artistry, textiles and materials delights your senses while you are pampered by incredible service and dining.

Hwange - The Hide, Dove's Nest

4 meerkat rating

The Dove’s Nest is, much like a real nest, built among the branches of a large tree situated about 10 minutes’ drive from The Hide, one of the longest-standing lodges in a Hwange private concession. After a night under the shooting stars on your secure and comfortable platform, the birds will gather to wake you with a ‘dawn chorus’ just as the sun rises for another day in Zimbabwe.

Mana Pools - MV Matusadona Luxury Houseboat

5 meerkat rating

Imagine gliding along the waterways of Mana Pools National Park on a fully equipped houseboat that includes a roof-top plunge pool – the perfect place for drinks, cooling down and game watching! The houseboat has all the mod cons plus tender boats for closer game viewing and going ashore. As you hire the boat privately, it can be the ultimate romantic escape!

South Luangwa - Kapamba Bush Camp

5 meerkat rating

Kapamba is one of the few bush camps that is open during Zambia’s rainy season from January to April, a really great time for birders looking for something special. Even if you do get a little wet, you can dry out around the crackling firepit overlooking the Luangwa River before warming up in a deep tub – which also comes with a spectacular view!

Lower Zambezi - Chiawa Camp

5 meerkat rating

At Chiawa Camp you get to feel like royalty as staff go out of their way to provide great service and cater to your every need. Its location gives you access not only to the massive Zambezi River but also to side channels: where you have the opportunity to canoe, watching the wildlife up-close. Back at camp, enjoy the large swimming pool, open-air gym and upper-level viewing complete with a powerful scope.

Kruger Private Reserves - Leopard Hills Private Game Lodge

5 meerkat rating

If there’s one thing the Sabi Sand reserve is known for, it’s prolific leopard sightings so this luxury lodge is very aptly named (in fact, it’s not unheard of to see all of the Big 5 in a single safari!). Leopard Hills is for those who want all the creature comforts – there’s no roughing it here with air-conditioning, fine dining, private plunge pools at every suite and an extensive wine cellar.
