Romantic holiday in Botswana

All regions of Botswana are ideal for couples travel, particularly the regions that are accessed by road. Travelling as a couple might get expensive when destinations require flights - i.e. some islands in the Okavango Delta during high water season. Self-drive spots, such as Chobe, Moremi, and the Kalahari are ideal for couples, as they offer both camping and lodging as accommodation options.

Highlights

The great thing about travelling as a couple, is there are very few limitations. Most lodges are designed to sleep two people in a room, so accommodation is geared towards couples sharing a bedroom and bathroom facilities, while verandahs and lounges are made up with two chairs, two bath robes, two sets of towels, etc. It is easy to enjoy a romantic safari in Botswana given the rooming environment. Some of the best couples activities include mokoro cruises (two to a mokoro), horse riding, private bush dinners, and couples’ spa treatments.

Travel tips

Travelling as a couple through Botswana can be a bonding and challenging experience for those who choose to self-drive. There is room for a pilot and co-pilot, a navigator and a music maestro, a relief driver for long distances, and two people to set up camp, cook, and clean. Travelling as a couple can be romantic, but it can also be remote, so it is important to ensure that each person is informed about the destination with regards to navigation, emergency details, knowledge of the animals and possible risks, so that if one person falls ill, the other can take control.

Horseriding in Botswana

Exploring the Makgadikgadi from the saddle of a well-trained horse can be a truly marvelous escapade. It is a completely different safari experience, evocative of the adventures of Africa’s early European settlers who often chose this way of moving through the great savannas of Africa.

Public transport in Botswana

Paved highways connect Botswana’s major towns and while most are in good condition, some sections are badly potholed. You’ll need to keep an eye out for these, as well as for both wild and domesticated animals. Stray cattle and donkeys are common near villages and the donkeys can be particularly dangerous. They have a tendency to stand in the middle of the road, refusing to move and…

Botswana in November

November is the spring shoulder season in Botswana, a time of soaring thunderclouds, returning migrant birds and, once the rains arrive, fields of new-born calves. It’s still very hot, with daily highs of 35°C to 40°C across the country, and it can get even hotter in the north where nights are humid and often well over 20°C. The start of the rainy season is always hard to predict,…

Cruising or drifting along at eye-level offers unbeatable photographic opportunities for wildlife and birds: African skimmers (that arrive any time from the month of May and lay their eggs on exposed sandbanks) carve out silver…

Walking with Meerkats in Botswana

The Makgadikgadi Pans offers guests the incredible chance to spend a morning with a local meerkat colony. The meerkats respond to the non-threatening presence of people by simply carrying on with their daily activities, that consist mainly of rummaging the veld for scorpions and other tasty bites to eat. The habituation of these lively little desert mammals depends very much on the…
