A hugely popular honeymoon haunt for Original Travel over the
last few years, the camps of the Okavango Delta are some of the
most romantic in Africa. Botswana is home to some of Africa's
finest - and most wildly expensive - lodges, so be prepared to dip
deep into your pocket for many of them. We also know, however, the
hidden gems which enjoy a similar location but with a few fewer
noughts on the price tag.
Finally, there's something particularly romantic about seeing
big game from a mokoro canoe, guided silently through the channels
of the delta by an expert guide. After a few days in the bush, the
beaches of Mozambique and Mauritius are easily accessible via
Johannesburg in neighbouring South Africa. For a less conventional
'beach' combo, consider a few days in the heart of the stunning and
suitably sandy Kalahari Desert at Jack's Camp.
