Flying over the Okavango Delta waterways. After arriving in Maun from Johannesburg you and your spouse will board a light aircraft that will fly you over the Delta waterways to your romantic accommodation in the Okavango Delta.
Your romantic bush camp is situated on the edge of the Moremi Game Reserve. The region is very scenic with picturesque channels and lagoons. You may set off in a traditional canoe called a mokoro to explore the channels and islands nearby.
This will give you the chance to see some of the wildlife including red lechwe and hippos. You'll return to the bush camp to enjoy romantic sundowners on the main deck before a delicious African-inspired dinner.
You can retire to your comfortable tented suite and go to sleep surrounded by the peace and tranquillity of the Delta night.
Navigating the Okavango Delta channels with a guide. In the morning you'll set off on exciting game viewing activities. You may decide on a guided nature walk on the nearby islands to try and track some animals such as giraffes and elephants.
All game-viewing activities are conducted by experienced professional guides who will teach you about the unique ecology of the region.
These walks provide wonderful bird-watching opportunities as the Okavango is a sanctuary for many different species such as Slaty egrets, African jacanas, and the iconic African fish eagles, or even rare species such as Pel's fishing owls.
You could also head out in a motorboat and explore further into the Delta through the tranquil channels, spotting animals such as elephants and hippo. Alternately, try your hand at fishing for the fierce tigerfish on an eco-friendly catch and release basis (seasonal).

You and your spouse will be amazed by the intricate patterns of the channels and waterways as you fly over the Okavango Delta. The next 3 nights are spent in the Savute region.
This is an interesting area, as the Savuti River only flows periodically. In recent years it has flooded consistently, and the region has become very wet. The region is known for the number of elephants that move through it in the dry season and the second largest zebra migration in the world.
Thrilling game drive stopping for a leopard sighting in Savute.For the next 2 days on your Botswana Honeymoon safari, you will set off on early morning game drives that take you into the beautiful Savute Marsh.

A wildlife spectacle that's not to be missed is thousands of elephants that come down to drink in the dry winter months.
Set off on game drives to see vast herds of buffalo and zebra which come down to drink, closely shadowed by predators such as lion and hyena.
In the afternoon you can enjoy a romantic river cruise on the Chobe River, which is conducted in small, shallow craft piloted by expert boatmen.
There is something magical about drifting down the river while enjoying a refreshing drink and watching the magnificent sunset. You will see many hippo and crocodiles while on your cruise.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
