Honeymoon Hotel of the Week: &Beyond Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp, Botswana

by Kristina Fazzalaro on January 9, 2013

Unique, exciting, gorgeous: Going on a safari honeymoon is all that and more.

This ultra-remote, luxurious safari lodge on an island in Botswana‘s Okavango Delta isn’t a hotel, it’s an experience, where everything — including the excellent food and the guided excursions (game drives, bush walks, river cruises) — is included in the price of the stay. At the &Beyond Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp, newlyweds can get up close and personal with exotic wildlife on both land and water (think: lions and hippos), and even arriving to the property is an adventure, requiring transport by small plane, safari vehicle, and a boat. The nine safari “tents” are fully screened in and thoroughly high-end, with huge soaking tubs, four-poster beds, lots of wood, and private plunge pools, creating a charming and romantic atmosphere.

Tinged with the sense of excitement that comes from being on safari — especially here as the camp is not enclosed — a honeymoon to Botswana is definitely going to be a memorable one. As an added bonus, the &Beyond Lodges offer a great honeymoon package that newlyweds might consider. Brides receive a 50 percent discount on their accommodations, and other special requests — such as private excursions — can also be made in advance.

Gorgeous natural surroundings will entrance newlyweds.

Luxurious beds will be hard to part with during your stay.

Couples will love the sleek, playful decor, which features a lily motif inspired by the delta location.

Rooms feature private plunge pools with a big cushioned lounger perfect for canoodling — but watch out for lions!

Romance and adventure: Yes, please!
