Vast open spaces and privacy are the world's most lavish luxuries. And these days, access to areas like these are incredibly limited.
The answer to your isolation prayers awaits in Botswana, where wildlife thrives but where humans are sparsely populated. You might go your entire trip without meeting the eyes of another human, but you will tick off an endless list of animal species. Is there anything more romantic than true isolation from city pollution, noise and other modern-day distractions? Go on, try to think of something. We'll wait.

Homosexuality was legalised only very recently in 2019. However, the country's tourist areas are and have always been very welcoming to gay travellers.
Yes, absolutely! Given the fact that you hardly ever encounter other people, it offers the ultimate privacy for you to simply focus on spending quality time together. Homosexuality was also legalised in 2019, a big win for Botswana although they have always been very accepting of gay tourists.
South Africa is a must! Stay for a couple of days in Cape Town, Africa's Gay Capital, where there's plenty of gay-friendly accommodation and activities to enjoy. Then jump on a quick flight to go for a luxury Big 5 safari in the Kruger National Park. It is also easy to add Victoria Falls to your itinerary. Why not add an island escape to Mauritius, Seychelles, Maldives or Mozambique at the end of your journey so that you can recuperate from your busy travels before heading home?
Everything! Whether you go out on a traditional game drive, a mokoro boat expedition, or you take on Botswana's landscapes on foot; you get to experience it all. And since homosexuality was legalised in 2019, you can freely express your love for each other.
If a Luxury Tent sounds like true romance, you can take your pick! However, if you want something a bit more solid, there are numerous Luxury Camps and Lodges.
