Honeymoon in Mozambique, Botswana & Vic Falls

Botswana and 2 other countries between 9 Aug 2010 and 23 Aug 2010

Trip rating: Excellent
"This was an amazing honeymoon, enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the beaches in Mozambique before heading into the Botswanan delta to two Kwando camps and then onto Tongabezi near Livingstone.

Expert Africa organised the whole thing brilliantly and are incredibly helpful, professional and flexible. Thank you."

Azura Benguerra

Azura Benguerra

"Honeymoon at Azura"

6 nights Arrived 9 Aug 2010
"Azura is set in the most beautiful location, and the helicopter ride to get there is amazing. The only downside of the location is that should you be unlucky enough to encounter bad weather (specifically wind) then the available activities are very limited. Unfortunately, this happened to us, so we could only get out on the boats (dive or other) on one day.

We understood from guides we met in Botswana that Mozambique is "locally" renown for windy conditions in August, so it might be better to avoid this time if at all possible, although we did get the only 4 days of "winter" that they had.

There isn't a great deal else to do on the island if you can't get out on the boats, other than sit back, relax and enjoy the brilliant food and wine. So, not so bad!

On our action packed last day, we did cram in a lot of the activities and Pansy Island is not to be missed. The opportunity to share a private lunch on a deserted sandbar is something that is almost certainly a once in a lifetime experience.

Special treats and personal touches galore to supplement the wonderful food and the great service. You will love it. Just hope it's not too windy!"

Johannesburg

"Overnight stay at 93 Jan Smuts"

1 night Arrived 15 Aug 2010
"A very lovely place to stay in the heart of Jo'burg if you need to overnight and want to get away from the airport. We arranged this ourselves.

Dinner was at the always excellent Local Grill which has 3 restaurants and does some of the best steak around."

Lebala Camp

Lebala Camp

"Honeymoon at Lebala"

2 nights Arrived 16 Aug 2010
"Our first safari camp was an experience to remember with Lebala's amazing location and wildlife.

Thabo & Bowman were excellent guides and we highly recommend them.

You will be well looked after at Lebala and would recommend it as part of a camp-hopping journey. The balance of (relative) creature comforts in the rooms with the communal eating led to a relaxed and friendly experience."

Kwara Camp

Kwara Camp

"Honeymoon at Kwara"

3 nights Arrived 18 Aug 2010
"We spent 3 nights at Kwara, having flown in from Lebala. Kwara's location in the trees in front of the lagoon is amazing and it seems to attract all sorts of great wildlife which The General & Kebe were only too happy to track down for us.

The waterside location affords extra activities and both the mokoro and delta-boat trips were very special experiences. The hosts at Kwara (Thuso and Janet in particular) really do go the extra mile for their guests and put on a private dining experience to celebrate our last night in the bush, and we were sad to leave the lovely people and their wonderful camp.

The only real surprise at the Kwando camps was that there were no other English guests whilst we were there. Not a problem at all, just a little unexpected."

Tongabezi

Tongabezi

"Honeymoon at Tongabezi"

2 nights Arrived 21 Aug 2010
"Wow, what a place!!!

After the experiences we had on our honeymoon (Azura Mozambique and camps in Botswana), Tongabezi really raised the bar!!! A stunning location on the hippo-infested Zambezi with outstanding facilities and quite brilliant cuisine. The "Nut House" where we stayed is probably the most amazing place we will EVER stay.

We wished we could have had longer to spend enjoying Tongabezi as we spent a lot of time enjoying the wonderful activities that the Zambezi has to offer at Livingstone, in particular the white water rafting with Bundu Adventures and the helicopter trip which both come highly recommended."
