Description

elephant namibiaThis couple was looking to celebrate their Tenth Wedding Anniversary with a romantic safari. Beginning with great wildlife viewing in the Okavango Delta and ending along the scenic landscape of the Skeleton Coast, this invigorating trip is two safaris linked by a sojourn in Cape Town. What was super exciting about planning this trip was the wide range of accommodation styles the couple gets to experience. We wanted to make this anniversary trip the full package!

From a pair of camps in the Delta with contemporary style and a luxurious bush feel, to a grand hotel with classic interiors inspired by Cape Town’s heritage, to an oasis situated on the dry Huab riverbed, to a remote camp overlooking a wide valley and the almost-always dry Hoanib River, we set this couple on an unforgettable anniversary safari that is equal parts adventurous, diverse and picturesque.

We were especially pleased to send this couple to two different sides of the Okavango Delta for 5 nights. With productive sightings of predators and elephants in an eco-chic setting, this area plays an important role in the empowerment of local communities.
