Botswana honeymoon safaris are arguably right up there with being some of the most unique honeymoon experiences in the world. It certainly is one of, if not the most romantic and adventurous ways to kick off the dawn of a new marriage.
In truth, most of the camps lodges and locations we encourage people to go to on a Botswana safari cater very well to honeymooners so it becomes very subjective to each, and different couples as to what would make for the best Botswana honeymoon safaris. Our general rule of thumb when considering exactly what to do is to stick to your normal travel personality traits and discuss with us the degree of adventure, luxury and relaxation you feel you may want.
There are a few things that immediately elevate a trip from ordinary to honeymoon category. Private guides and vehicles where possible, remote safari camps in off the beaten track parks or reserves, touches of luxury either at the medium or opulent scale for example.

One of our top picks for honeymoon safaris would undoubtedly be Botswana. The diversity of the national parks in this country is something to behold as is the diversity of wildlife and quality of the camps and lodges.
