BOTSWANA'S CROWNING GLORY

If the weird and wonderful wild is where you want to be, the puzzling water wonderland of the Okavango Delta will deliver. It's here that your soul will find rest, and your inner adventurer will be delighted at the new sights and sounds around every corner. From bushwalks, boat cruises, game drives and mokoro (dug-out canoe) safaris, you'll get to see this paradise from every vantage point.

Falling under Bostwana's legislation, homosexuality is legal as of 2019. They even have some discrimination protection in place for LGBT residents. Although they only recently legalised homosexuality, Botswana and especially the Okavango Delta have been and continue to be very gay-friendly tourist destinations.

Besides, Botswana is very sparsely populated with humans but packed with wildlife, so you only really have to care about the latter. And guess what? They don't care whom you love!

All Your Burning Questions Answered

How Gay-Friendly Is the Okavango Delta?

The Okavango Delta is in Botswana, where homosexuality was legalised in 2019. There is also some protection in place for LGBTQ+ residents. Gay marriage, however, is not recognised. It is and has been very gay-friendly to tourists for many years now, even before homosexuality was legalised.

Is the Okavango Delta Safe for Gay Couples?

Botswana is a thriving tourist destination, although it is not overcrowded like you would expect from a tourist destination. In fact, you might not even encounter many people on your travels. You can therefore truly soak in the luxury of having uninterrupted quality time with your significant other. And since homosexuality is legal, you don't have to worry about anything but enjoying the life-changing experiences you will experience here.

Which Gay-Friendly Destinations Should I Pair with the Okavango Delta?

Botswana is not that far from the wondrous Victoria Falls and the desertscapes of Namibia. You also absolutely have to go to Africa's Gay Capital, Cape Town in South Africa! From here, a Big 5 safari in Kruger National Park is a short flight away. On your way home, why not end your trip with a lazy island getaway in Mauritius, Seychelles or the Maldives? You're welcome.

What Are The Best Gay-Friendly Experiences in The Okavango Delta?

Safari, safari, safari! You can never tire of exploring every inch of this mysterious wildlife haven. Whether you do so on your traditional game drive, on foot, or on a mokoro (dugout canoe), each day will promise new sights and sounds. If you want to take things up a notch, you can even get a bird's-eye-view of the majesty of it all in a helicopter.

What Are The Gay-Friendly Accommodation Options in the Okavango Delta?

Boy, are you in for a treat! From glamping in Luxury Tented Camps, to more authentic Safari Tents, or eco-friendly Lodges, you'll be spoiled for choice and have the best views.
