Southern Africa is a fantastic destination for honeymooners who would like to enjoy a romantic safari! It’s known for its pristine wilderness and abundant wildlife. Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique offer unique and romantic experiences for newlyweds. All these countries know how to pull all the ’stops’ to create romantic moments for their guests and as the best honeymoon destinations in Africa they are known for creating dream experiences. Beyond the superb game viewing and stunning backdrops, honeymooners can enjoy a range of different activities from private candle-lit dinners floating through a lily covered lagoon to helicopter safaris with champagne stops on palm islands and sleeping beneath the stars on private star beds.
How about you add some special touches to your safari
The Okavango Delta is fabulous from the ground – but even more beautiful from above. We have prepared itineraries featuring a few extra special activities alongside a traditional Okavango safari – a scenic helicopter ride whizzing along the waterways is nothing to be missed and will definitely be worth it when you and your family or friends look back to the wonderful pictures you made while on safari.
The special that we chose for you is the African Bush Camps ‘romantic helicopter safari’ – please contact us on email@example.com to find out more and how this package can be tailored to your wishes.
A Night under stars…how romantic can it get?
Now we are talking about something absolutely spectacular! A night below the stars on a private starbed. A perfect blend of adventure and luxury without compromising on your safari experience.
In complete seclusion surrounded by nothing else but the bush and the Botswana stars above, a night out alone in the bush is often the highlight of many who go on safaris to Botswana. Your night out comes with complete privacy, alone in the wild with the sounds of hyenas, lions roaring from a safe distance, coming from every direction, and that sunrise in the morning, ideal for honeymooners or romantics out there and let us not forget, falling asleep under all those stars.
here are some examples of magnificent star-bed-experiences:
Xigera Safari Lodge Baobab Treehouse
The Baobab House is an exclusive-use villa within the Xigera Safari Lodge. It is a private retreat that offers spacious accommodation and personalized services for a truly immersive safari experience.
Natural Selection’s Skybed in the Khwai Private Reserve
With only three platforms the sky beds can only accommodate six guests a time. The 5 meter high platforms overlook a busy waterhole frequently visited by large numbers of bull elephants. Each platform comes with its own flush toilet, shower and basin under the sleeping area. Skybed can only be booked in combination with one of the camps in the Khwai Private Reserve, namely Little Sable, Sable Alley, Tuludi or Hyena Pan.
Desert & Delta @Camp Okavango Sleepout-Deck
The Sleepout Deck at Camp Okavango offers a thrilling overnight experience unlike any other. Rather than traditional tents, the Sleepout Deck consists of an elevated platform with comfortable beds, allowing you to sleep under a mosquito net and enjoy unobstructed views of the starlit sky. It offers a true “wild camping” experience while maintaining comfort and security.
