It is my favourite nation on earth to check out for much more factors than 1 and if you have ever had the urge to knowledge a safari for the 1st time, I can not advise Botswana adequate.
The landscapes of the Okavango Delta are some of the most mesmerising I’ve observed the planet more than – endless shades of green, epic sunsets, and most importantly, ample wildlife (thanks in aspect to the nation’s sturdy reputation for wildlife conservation).
If you uncover oneself Africa bound or are seeking for an out-of-the-ordinary honeymoon location, these are 4 of my favourite lodges in Botswana that will assure the trip of a lifetime.
Sandibe Okavango Delta
Positioned adjacent to the wildlife-wealthy Moremi Game Reserve, Sandibe Okavango Delta is 1 of Botswana’s most sought immediately after safari lodges. The lodge attributes its interior style to the all-natural surrounds with endless shades of beige and a variety of textures that compliment the all-natural surrounds.
The rooms involve a private plunge pool (a welcomed treat immediately after a hot morning on game drive) and each and every space has the privacy of its’ personal view of the surrounding floodplains.
Prices involve twice every day game drives, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

For a much more masculine method to interior design and style, Xudum lodge in the Delta is the great mix in between luxe and rustic. This lodge has a way of producing you really feel so warm and welcome you under no circumstances want to leave and just that occurred to myself and my pal Claire when we spent 3 nights right here in early March. March is of course dry season in the Delta, so if you are wanting to knowledge water activities and the Delta in flood then be certain to save your check out for mid-year.

Only an hour drive from Xudum is Xaranna lodge, hosting a a great deal much more feminine palette and unobstructed views for each and every of the private rooms on internet site. In the wet season this is 1 of the most sought immediately after lodges in the Delta as it hosts a lot of water activities with a physique of water at the front of the lodge. The meals was a highlight of my remain with elaborate multi-course dinners enjoyed on the jetty, by the bonfire and in the casual restaurant immediately after evening game drives.
Nxabega Tented Camp
If you are seeking for a much more rustic choice to get off the grid and actually unwind, Nxabega tented camp is the great choice. There is no wi-fi in the rooms which tends to make for the great excuse to switch off from the rest of the planet and take pleasure in your surrounds.
Game drives at Nxabega had been complete of fascinating sightings – lots of cats and even wild dogs! The highlight of this camp is the remoteness and back-to-fundamentals really feel in the rooms but with the added bonus of a swimming pool to unwind in the key location.
