What are the best places to visit in Botswana for a honeymoon?

1. Okavango Delta: Known as one of the best and the most unique wildlife habitats in the whole world, the Okavango Delta should be on top of your list of places to visit on your Botswana honeymoon trip. Home to a diverse range of wildlife species, the delta is also the largest inland delta in the world.

From canoe rides, wildlife safaris and game drives, to camping and watching frogs, elephants, lions, leopards and other animal and bird species, the delta has a lot to offer during your visit here.

2. Moremi Game Reserve: One of the best places to include in your Botswana honeymoon package is the pristine Moremi Game Reserve. Situated in the central and eastern regions of the Okavango Delta, this is one of the most beautiful places in Africa. It is here where the land meets the delta, giving way to the creation of lagoons, water pools, waterways, floodplains, salt pans, forests and verdant grasslands.

The reserve is also a home of the rare black and white rhino, along with other animal species such as the giraffe, buffalo, lion, leopard, jackal, hyenas and cheetah. You can also catch a glimpse of the African wild dog, impala and the red lechwe here, in addition to almost 500 different species of birds.

Home to many small industries and manufacturers, the village boasts of the Pelegano Village Industry where you can find many glasswork, metal and pottery workshops and manufacturers.

A special mention in Gabane goes to the pottery factory, where one must visit during their honeymoon trip in Botswana. Here, in addition to seeing how expert pottery is done, you can also get your hands on unique crockery, vases and other decorative items, all of which are handmade. Owing to the hilly terrain, the village is also great for indulging in hiking.

4. Kasane: Another one of the best places to visit during your Botswana honeymoon trip is Kasane. Situated between the four corners of Africa, Kasane is the place where Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Zambia meet each other, and this place therefore has great significance in the continent’s geography. Along with just visiting Kasane, one can also spend a few days here whilst exploring the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe or the Chobe National Park in Botswana.

One of the major attractions of Kasane is a huge Baobab tree, which was used as a prison in the bygone eras due to the size of its trunk which can easily fit a fully grown human. Kasane is also known for its snake park, where you can see around 50 snakes of 17 different species.
