Prince Harry And Meghan Markle's Exotic Honeymoon Destination Revealed

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have chosen a very glamorous destination for their honeymoon.

Following their wedding in May, the royal couple are jet-setting off to the sun-soaked African country of Namibia.

It's no surprise that Africa has topped the list for the loved-up pair - it was always a strong contender in potential honeymoon destinations they might choose.

Prince Harry as often spoken about his love for Africa and regularly travels there, including trips to Botswana as part of his role as patron of Rhino Conservation Botswana.

In fact, he whisked Meghan away on a romantic retreat to Botswana in the early months of their relationship; so no doubt the sun-soaked continent holds a special place in both of their hearts.

However it seems that it's the breathtaking landscapes of Namibia that have won them over for their honeymoon.


The country is renowned for its spectacular scenery ranging from lush grasslands to jaw-dropping sand dunes, not to mention the exotic wildlife that can be spotted on safari.

Then of course there are the luxurious lodges which have already proven a firm hit with honeymooners, offering everything from panoramics of the landscapes to quiet little havens for total privacy.

Of course, Namibia is ideal for privacy. It's one of the least densely populated countries in the world, ideal for a royal couple looking to escape the public eye.

After all, as Prince Harry and Meghan have invited members of the public to their wedding, not to mention there'll be hordes of royal fans descending on Windsor to catch a glimpse of them on their big day, no doubt they will be wanting some more peaceful surroundings to themselves.

However, if they do want an adventure-packed break, the couple won't be disappointed. There's so much to see and do in Namibia.

For a start, there are plenty of amazing safaris to go on where visitors can look out for the likes of lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, giraffes and many more.

Etosha National Park tends to be a favourite as the reserve offers ample opportunity to go wildlife-spotting, not to mention that there are plenty of brilliant hotels nearby to suit every budget.

Or for something a bit different, Cape Cross Seal Reserve is home to one of the largest colonies of Cape Fur Seals in the world.

It's not all about the animals though. Namibia boasts a wide range of breathtaking landscapes, whether you're heading to explore the magnificent Fish River Canyon, or camping out in the desert surrounded by red hued sand dunes - Sossusvlei can be a great spot for this.

As for where to stay, Prince Harry and Meghan will be spoiled for choice thanks to the wide array of seriously luxurious accommodation on offer.

For example, the Natural Selection's Hoanib Valley Camp has everything you could want for a private, luxury retreat for a honeymoon - and it's been tipped as one of the stronger contenders for the royals' romantic break.

Tucked away in north-western Namibia, it's surrounded by mountains, sand dunes and deserts, not to mention it's in one of the most remote regions of the country - ideal for total privacy.

Recently built as a joint venture with the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, there are only six rooms on offer, complete with all the modern amenities guests could need, as well as lush ensuite bathrooms with both indoor and outdoor showers.

Other popular camps and lodges include the Okonjima campsite which has everything from luxury lodges to camping hotspots amidst the nature reserve, which is famous for being home to a host of big cats.

Meanwhile, the Kulala Desert Lodge is a stone's throw away from Sossusvlei and has 23 thatched and canvas lodges with verandas that are ideal for taking in the sights.


Kensington Palace is yet to officially comment on the destination.
