Take inspiration from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s safari holiday together in the beautiful country of Botswana with luxury safari specialists Sanctuary Retreats. Often referred to as ‘Harry’s second home’, this magnificent destination offers some of the finest game viewing in the world due to the incredible concentration and diversity of mammals and wildlife.
The Moremi Game Reserve, in the Okavango Delta, is recognised as the predator capital of Africa’ and is well known for its outstanding game viewing. Chief’s Island in the Moremi Game Reserve is also home to Sanctuary Retreats’ flagship property, Sanctuary Chief’s Camp. This luxurious contemporary safari camp has 10 stylish pavilions and a superb suite – The Geoffrey Kent Luxury Suite which offers a truly luxurious safari experience.
The spacious pavilions have incredible views over the surrounding Okavango Delta, which can be enjoyed from each pavilion’s private pool or from the tranquil outdoor seating area. Bathrooms – complete with floor to ceiling windows -also have a spacious outdoor shower and an indulgent, large bath tub – perfect for soaking in after a day’s game viewing.
Falling asleep under the spectacular African night sky after a bush bath in the natural surroundings is a unique and intimate experience.
Sanctuary Retreats offer this truly romantic treat in their five luxurious suites at Sanctuary Baines’ Camp in the Okavango Delta, all of which have private viewing decks where a bath for two can be set up. Two free standing bath tubs “magically” appear on the candlelit private viewing deck of its suites whilst guests are out on an evening game drive. The zinc “star baths” are filled with warm water and plenty of environmentally-friendly bubbles and mobile canvas screens are placed around them to ensure complete privacy without obstructing the stunning views from the deck.
Each suite also has a four-poster “sky bed” that can also be rolled out onto the candlelit wooden deck for a night under the African star filled night sky. Fall asleep under the stars and wake up to the sound of the African dawn chorus.
