As news breaks that Harry and Meghan will be honeymooning in Namibia this May, travelling between a number of luxury lodges, Southern African travel specialist Discover the World has unveiled its take on the perfect Namibian honeymoon for those looking to travel in their footsteps.
Ready for an adventure? Here’s how to spend a Nambian holiday in style. .
The fly-in safari starts with three nights at the stylish Sossuvslei Desert Lodge, ideally positioned to discover the scenic NamibRand Nature Reserve, Sossusvlei and the Namib Desert; the oldest desert in the world.
This area is an International Dark Sky Reserve and boasts a resident astronomer who offers unparalleled star-gazing workshops.
Also available are tours of the Sesriem Canyon and sunrise hot air balloon rides over the NamibRand Nature Reserve; spotting oryx, kudu, springbok and ostrich.
Next, head north for two nights spent at Damaraland Camp for stunning vistas across stark plains and mountains. It’s the perfect spot for conservationists like Harry to search for rare desert elephants (only found in Namibia and Mali).
It’s also close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein; home to some of the best examples of bushman paintings in Southern Africa.
From here, spend two nights at Serra Cafema, one of the most remote camps in Southern Africa, on the banks of the Kunene River in Kaokoland where landscapes are among some of the most dramatic in the country.
As well as visiting the epic Epupa Falls, couples can also pay a visit to the semi-nomadic Himba tribe, enjoy river boat trips and traverse sand dunes on thrilling 4X4 safaris.
The final stop is the exclusive Little Ongava (featuring only three spacious bungalows) on the private Ongava Reserve. Set off on game drives to explore Etosha National Park, where it isn’t unusual to see herds of over fifty elephants stroll by, before relaxing at the lodge or sitting in the underground hide to watch animals congregate at the nearby waterhole.
