Safari Honeymoon Zimbabwe and Botswana

Inspirational safari honeymoon to Zimbabwe and Botswana

Without a doubt, a bucket-list honeymoon, this extraordinary journey begins with the chance to see the iconic Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, followed by some intense encounters with Botswana’s exceptional wildlife.   Escape the crowds at Victoria Falls staying at Mpala Jena, a luxury tented camp on the banks of the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe.  Here the two of you will not only have the chance to experience game drives, guided walks, and boat-based activities in the Zambezi National Park but also see the nearby Victoria Falls. 

In Botswana, you will fly between private areas of the Linyanti and the Okavango Delta, two of the most pristine wilderness areas left on our planet.  Selinda Explorers Camp and Duba Explorers Camp, in private concession areas, are perfectly placed for intimate and up-close wildlife viewing opportunities, from lions and leopards to elephants, lechwe, buffalo, and everything in between.  The atmosphere is one of bush elegance with a relaxed style, complemented by attentive staff, private, professional service, and delicious food.  They are unassuming camps, light on their footprint but heavy on experiential luxury. The camps suit honeymooners who desire a back-to-nature experience but with those extra spoils.
